It wasn't a gourmet delight made from thinly sliced toro tuna and a wonderful asian inspired sauce. It was a cheap meal to feed five or six hungry folks in tight times.
(Personally, you could'nt make me eat it at gunpoint.)

    I like the crunch of celery on my pizza.

        In France they had some of the weirdest combos for pizza but they were amazing! I fell in love with this little take out pizza joint that had 1 size only a 13" thin crust pizza. There were 3 prices- 5E, 6E and 7E and under each category there were about 10 options. I tried many but my favorites were the forestiere- which was a mixture of mushrooms, garlic, cheese and the St. Barth which had white sauce, onions, mushrooms, crabmeat, cheese and then an egg cracked over the center. There was a Bourgogne(Burgandy) pizza which I tried with escargots, garlic butter, cheese and I can't remember what else. It was good but the St. Barth was by far my favorite.

        I couldn't bring myself to try the combos with giblets/kidneys on them.

          Back in the late 70's in southern California, somebody brought over a pizza with very thin lemon slices as the topping.
          As New Yorkers, we were both appalled and disgusted.
          BTW, my favorite homemade pie is baked on a stone in my oven, topped with a ricotta/pesto mixture, and a generous layer of caramelized onions as the crowning glory.
          Mangia!

            Zante's in San Francisco makes an incredibly bizarre but delicious Indian pizza:

              When driving through upstate New York several years ago we stopped at a place that had pierogie pizza.
              Had to try one and it was very good.

                  Ci Ci's is advertising macaroni and cheese pizza..
                  I stopped in for one of their fresh salads and garlic bread and checked the line and sure enough there it was - macaroni and cheese.
                  Nope I didn't try it but it really looked good. The kids there were going crazy for it

                      Mac 'n' cheese pizza doesn't sound too different from baked ziti pizza, which is a "specialty" pie I see from time to time in NY pizzerias, and which isn't bad. The topping is a more-or-less traditional baked ziti recipe: macaroni, red sauce and some combo of cheese which can include any of the following: ricotta, mozzarella, provolone.

                      Does the mac 'n' cheese pie have tomato sauce, and do they use that Kraft-style yellow cheese sauce or do they do something else with the cheese?

                        Sounds like tomato pie common in Rome. Large and very thin with only tomato sauce, and an egg in the center.

                            hmmm no it's not red sauce-- it's like a cheesy sauce-- from what i remember.. BUT the noodles (macaroni) are the BIGGEST ones i've ever seen in my life.. they are cork screw kind ( i call them screwy noodles) and they are thick.. but it's pretty good.. for something different that is...:)

                              Wildwood Pizza in Willernie, MN offers a huge list of goofy ingredients. PB & J, chopped mixed nuts, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts are some I can remember off the top of my head. Don't know if anyone really ever orders them, but they're on the menu.
                              Sauerkraut or pineapple aren't even unusual to me, they are both great on pizza (not on the same pie.)
                              Pineapple with Canadian Bacon.
                              Sauerkraut with sausage and onion, maybe black olives or mushrooms.

                                Over here in London, UK they've got some VERY strange pizzas (and I can confirm that corn is considered a standard topping). There's a place called Fire & Stone which specializes in odd pizzas.

                                http://www.fireandstone.com/pizzas.asp

                                My friend had The Bombay and swore it was good. That features roast chicken, spiced tandoori yoghurt base, broccoli, red onion, mozzarella, spiced mango chutney, cucumber and mint yoghurt.

                                At your cheaper pizza places in the East/Northeast ends of London, a pizza which commonly appears on menus is a Curry pizza, which has curry sauce, cashews and bananas. I think it's probably less of something they actually sell and maybe more of a dare.

                                  Buffalo Chicken Wing Pizza all the way. You just have to eat it with a knife and fork.

                                  Wierdest things I've heard of happen at the Great Northern Pizza Kitchen which is a regional chain where I'm from. Great pizzas with just about anything you could want. The Cheesy Baked Potato is just one of their many standards.

                                      Any Buffalo Pizza I have seen has spicy fried chicken bits, not actual wings on the pizza.

                                        I mentioned it elsewhere on roadfood... but the first "strange" topping I experienced was sliced boiled egg on pizza in Germany. I origianlly thought "that's gross" especially since I did not orider that as a topping. However... for those of you that would also think that gross.. consider how well "sliced boiled egg" might go with pizza (or even tomato sauce)... it was excellant.

                                        When I make pizza at home, I will sometimes include that as a topping, and have always heard positive comments.. I also normally include bacon as a topping where the egg is added... seems to enhance.

                                          I do love pineapple and ham on pizza. I make one at home with smoked ham, asparagus, caramelized onions and fontina cheese. Yummy. But the one I think almost everyone has found repulsive is pepperoni or sausage pizza that I put ketchup and french fries on top of. For some reson, I've been doing it since I was about 12 or 13 and everyone who has witnessed it thinks I'm crazy. My dad did a double take when he saw it. But like all artists, my work will never be appeciated during my lifetime. Thats ok, I don't do it for the glory, but so that future generations can benefit from it! hehe.

                                            Billyboy, I do agree, tht sounds really repulsive. But I'll bet Parse would like it

                                              "No-cheese" pizza! Now that's "not" a topping I think is funny!

                                                The local Pizza Hut is offering a Lasanga Pizza. Now I like Lasanga and Pizza, but together?

                                                  I take that back. I've had a "no-cheese" pizza that was good. "Earth Mother" from Two Boots, NYC.

                                                    It's not the ingredients but the name that is strange. A few unrelated Italian restuarants and pizzerias in the Lehigh Valley of PA offer "German Pizza" on their menus. It's a regular tomato sauce and mozzarella pizza topped with chopped chip steak and fried onion (same as for a cheese steak) and also pickled sweet pepper strips (as in the hoagie condiment). It's really a sort of cheesesteak pizza and very good but nobody knows why it's called a German pizza.

                                                        Are you sure that that isn't the Atkins diet pizza?

                                                            An odd thing I noted recently up in northeast PA, on those great sicilian slices of pizza:

                                                            Brocoli.

                                                            Now, the pizza up there usually doesn't even have toppings put on it! I'm serious, none. However this brocoli seemed to be pretty damn popular. Know what's even stranger? It's pretty damned good too. I was as skeptical as you likely are reading this.

                                                            The salad pizza, and Anna Marie style pizzas sound delicious. The white pizza/potato/rosemary doesn't sound too odd at all to me, but very good.

                                                            Remember guys, Pizza to America isn't really pizza to Italians. And there are: Northern Italians, Central Italians, Southern Italians, and Sicilians.

                                                            To me? The souther, the better.
