Alright, everyone seems to love pizza and everyone has their favorite toppings. There’s cheese, pepperoni, chicken, peppers, or even just sauce. You really can’t go wrong with pizza toppings, but with great customization, comes the great potential for silliness. People use countless crazy toppings on their pizzas, and no, pineapple is not one of them!
These pizzas might have come out of the old Ninja Turtles cartoon, and these toppings either sound really good or sound really bad. It all depends on how you think and what your taste buds tell you sounds good, but here are the weirdest things people have put on pizza, and whether they are good or not will depend on you.
Making Pizza green again: Broccoli and Peas
This author is more than likely included in the crowd of people to point to pizza and say “tomatoes and peppers and mushrooms, I’m eating my vegetables!” But having cooked broccoli or peas adorning your slice just seems odd; maybe not gross, but at least guaranteed to give you a double take. Peas on pizzas are mostly found in Brazil, and broccoli on pizza started in the UAE.
It might be worth a try, but that’s about all it is, and thankfully you won’t find it on Pizza in Rapid City or any other chain restaurant.
Alright, now cold pizza can be a great breakfast, and who doesn’t love having a warm food eaten cold or vice versa? But in Russia, they take It to the extremes, by topping cold pizzas with sardines, tuna, mackerel, salmon, and onions. Again, another combination that is an acquired taste, but fish might taste good on a pizza. Might.
Crab is also added to pizza in certain religions, and it’s simply mixed in with the other pizza toppings. So at least it doesn’t overpower the whole pizza, and those of us who have had crab can agree that it might work out.
Side Dishes on the Pie
Combinations are going really well in today’s world, and one of those combinations is traditional Mac and Cheese on a pizza. Just put some noodles and cheese on a pizza and you’ll be good to go! If you want the best of both worlds, then this is the best meal for you.
Another side dish that is getting the pizza treatment is the mashed potato, and while it is a good substitute for many things, it might not work on a pizza. If you want to put potatoes on a pizza, you are better off covering it with fries.
Everyone’s probably made a dessert pizza with cookies as the crust, icing or cream as the sauce, and various toppings covering it, but some people don’t distinguish between the two. Chocolate sometimes takes its place as the sauce for a pizza, and that doesn’t sound too great.
Some of these toppings might have you licking your lips, while others might have you gagging, but hopefully, your pizza craving is up after this!
