My local Pizzaria makes a mean Calamari, fetta, kalamata olive and bruscetta pizza.

Revolting. Trust me. Fried squid is sublime, barbecued is good, baked is horrible.

They do a great seafood pizza not far from us. Everything but the kitchen sink. I'm not keen on seafood, but Hubby says they are YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY!!

Pizza with the kitchen sink on it is pretty good as well - just make sure you have your titanium teeth on!

My favorite is homemade, if I say so myself.  Mr. Y and I make a mean wheat crust pizza with every vegetable imaginable and it's so filling that after two slices I'm ready to let my belt out a notch.  Alton Brown also has a good pizza recipe on the Food Network site, though I recommend using slightly less salt than he does.

How much salt does he suggest?

Indeed he is!  Though he himself suggests using less salt (after a few viewer suggestions).  That's the only recipe of his I've used that wasn't quite perfection.

Edit: Added quote to clarify.

He calls for 1 tablespoon of kosher salt, but he suggests going down to 2 teaspoons and using 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar instead of 2.  Here's a link to the full recipe:  Pizza Pizzas by Alton Brown

EDIT:  Something to keep in mind, too, is that kosher salt flakes are bigger than table salt grains, so you'll actually get more salt in your recipe if you use regular table salt. (Which we did... it was still edible, but even I thought it was too salty and I can eat salt directly out of the shaker.)

Then add some anchovies on top of that. :P

We usually do add kalamata olives and feta cheese so that sure ups the saltiness.  What better toppings, though?

^Never.  I have an aversion to canned meat, and canned fish especially.  Blech!
