Poll: What Do You Do With Your Crusts?


Pizza vox populi.

With the New Year only just out of sight, I wanted to come up with a poll question last week that would ring a little festive. In retrospect caviar seems like the obvious choice (future poll?), but the query I put to you was this: truffles on pizza, way or no way? With 454 votes, the clear winner with 48% of the total was...it depends. Truffles seem to be okay with most of us, as long as they're used judiciously. There were a few hardliners—60 votes for hell no and 93 for always, but the majority fell in the middle. Check out the comments for some delicious sounding possibilities (if you were one of the people who voted any form of yes or maybe to truffles on your pie), or to chime in with your fellow anti-trufflers.

This week's survey is decidedly less highbrow, and brings us back to a pizza basic: the crusts. What do you do with them? Responses tend to run the gamut, from those who've left behind a field of pizza bones to the dippers to the every-last-bite devourers. I've even been known to occasionally fold the last two inches or so of a slice up over the crust, so I get flavor with my extra food (don't judge me). So which is it? When you're faced with crusts, more often than not what do you do with them?
