Pizza vox populi.

They're ubiquitous. You'll find them slice shops and pizzerias across the country. Perfect, tiny shaker jars of spices, herbs, salt and pepper. Whether you reach for them with indifferent familiarity or passionate enthusiasm, chances are you have indeed reached for them. The question is: which ones do you reach for? Oregano? Garlic powder? Parmesan? The question clearly found some common ground amongst our readers, garnering 2,767 votes. I know you're all on the edge of your seats so the winner is *drumroll*...crushed red pepper (or possibly chili oil)! It won with 38% of the votes, while Parmesan came up second with 24%. A few people commented with some intriguing and less common options: spicy raspberry drizzle, hot sauce, ranch dressing, and furikake to name a few.

Lately all I've wanted to eat is breakfast, and usually (for me) that means eggs. Baked eggs, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, poached eggs swimming in Hollandaise...whatever you've got, I want it. This has had me missing Ortine, where they had a breakfast pie I really loved,—whole wheat crust with eggs, smoked trout, ricotta, caramelized onions, and capers—and craving an eggy pie in general. What about you: do you love a little yolk on your pizza, or want nothing to do with it?
