Cheese, pepperoni and pineapple, oh my. Food Network asked Facebook fans: “In your opinion, what is the best topping for pizza?” Not only did 3,843 of you answer, but you also shared extremely detailed choices.

Spinach, bacon, ham, mushrooms, olives, garlic — you guys want it all — as long as it’s covered with gooey cheese. Extra cheese was the number one topping of choice, with pepperoni and pineapple following close behind. Fans love pineapple classically paired with ham, but don’t mind if it’s mixed with chicken or bacon.

Every veggie possible made the list, but you’ll heap your slice high with mushrooms, olives and onions. Sprinkle a bit of garlic on top and you’ve got yourself a dream pie. Now that you’re probably craving pizza, make some at home instead of ordering in.

Spice things up with Rachael’s Thai Chicken Pizza. Cucumbers, bean sprouts, peanuts and duck sauce make this chicken pie a melting pot of international flavors.

Add some seafood to the mix with Bobby’s Grilled Shrimp and Cilantro Pizza. Buffalo mozzarella adds creaminess, while the cilantro pesto brings out the delicate flavor of the shrimp.

Ellie’s Egg, Ham and Spinach Pizza is less than 400 calories and puts a laid-back spin on Sunday brunch. Get step-by-step directions for Ina’s White Pizzas With Arugula, or try easy Pita Pizzas from Food Network Magazine.

Of course, no pizza list is complete without a dessert option. Bake Guy’s S’more Pizza (pictured above) with marshmallows, dark chocolate, graham crackers and a dash of chili powder for a sweet snack.

    Use Spicy 3-Pepper Hummus instead of sauce. Mozzarella, garlic, spinach, roasted red peppers, black olives and mushrooms. Smoked sausage or chicken if you need meat. This is my signature pizza at home!

    My home fave…white pizza with minced garlic sauteed in butter, corn kernals cut from the cob (put on raw), chopped fresh cilantro and topped with tons of fresh whole-milk mozzarella. Sometimes I add shrimp (put on raw) as well. Definitely NOT diet but really good!
