    I don't get this series. You've decided to start with "make perfect" pizza? So a subject you can't possibly tackle? Cool. There is a reason there are tons of topping options, tons of dough choices, tons of different local vendors. Is the intent to make an actual perfect pizza? There isn't such a thing. If the purpose is to ambiguously determine the "perfect pizza" within the small sample size of the kitchen sure I guess. Pizza is to broad and well established of a subject to just dive in and make it perfect.

    Red onions on a pizza is in the same communist category as pineapple on pizza. WHITE onions are the only onion that should be on a pizza.

    I know that this was filmed weeks ago, and I love the series so far, and y'all are doing a great job, ...but I don't think this is turning out to be the perfect pizza. For this episode, I don't think enough toppings were tired, at least on screen, for me to be convinced (especially on veggie, which seemed to be equated with just mushrooms). Speck was mentioned so many times, I'm kinda confused because I didn't find out what it was, and that nobody tried it on pizza in this episode's content. Moreover, we have a meat, veggie, and anchovies options, but we don't have a mixed, "supreme" pie option, as it were. Lastly, I don't think the testing of toppings took into account how well they might work with other toppings (i.e. would Maitake work better with Mortadella than Chanterelle?). More generally, it kinda feels like every component has been engineered to be balanced in itself. I'm not complaining about that so much, but my favorite pizzas are where the imbalances of the sauce, cheese, crust, and toppings balance each other out. You wouldn't necessarily enjoy eating just one part, but the whole is so interesting! I don't think I'm seeing that here. In any case, thanks for all the info and education you've brought in these videos. I eagerly await the final episode!
