The sauce needs to be sweet to contrast the saltiness of Provel Cheese although I have made hand tossed pizzas with mozzarella and they turned out very good.
What I really don't like is the new Dominoes Pizza. It is overloaded with garlic. It's hard to fuck up pizza so it is not edible, but they have succeeded.
I actually like Jack's frozen pizza. The trick is to cook it on a preheated pizza stone.
