I’m a big believer in trying many combinations of pizza toppings, until you find the ones that suit you the best. However, to help you navigate the multitude of pizza styles and toppings, try these;

Black Olives and Basil

Mozzarella and Black Olives

Black Olives and Mushroom

Don’t stop at those though, keep trying various combinations and amounts. I prefer 3-6 toppings; any more, and my pizza is too heavy and no topping stands out very well. That’s just my personal taste though.
