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.)

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.

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.

I'd be hard pressed to put broccoli on a pizza as a main topping. It would be like putting wax beans or cauliflower on one.

To find it on a pizza I suppose I wouldn't be surprized to find it maybe on a Chicago style pizza.

I once worked at a place that had a version of Coquille St Jacques (a scallop dish with a cream/wine/cheese sauce) that included broccoli in it ... that was quite popular ... So maybe a New York style pizza: (no tomato sauce) fresh garlic, then part mozzarella/part smoked provolone, & coquille st jacques with broccoli.

How about raw fish ... actually one of my very favorites.

Well, salt-cured actually ... these would be canned anchovies; but I vastly prefer them *not* cooked on the pizza. I just put them on top at the table.

I love anchovies too. I put them on after cooking as well because the whiners in my family who don't like them think they contaminate the rest of the pizza if cooked on it. Sheesh! Philistines, all of them! Fred

Visiting my brother in Wisconsin, we found what has been previously mentioned on page one at a place called Happy Joe's. That is, the spaghetti pizza. I was kind of doubtful about having a flour base topped with what would seem to be a lot of loose messy strands of pasta. The whole thing held together by virtue of the melted mozzarella on top and like all pizzas, it was better the next day.

While there, I have saw advertisements for a lasagna pizza from Pizza Hut(I think it was them), but have yet to see these ads here on the east coast. Has anybody seen these ads and is this a regional test market item? Corporate lasagna topping worries me.....

LOL, Ann and Fred
I too have some friends that dislike anchovies (even the sight of them) ... like I tell 'em, wrong whine ... try the Chianti.

Ann, anchovies have brought my family closer together too.
About 12 of my extended family were out to dinner one night. Upon seeing the bread-basket overflowing with hot breadsticks I quietly asked the waitress to bring me a large side of anchovies. When they came to the table, my brother's father-in-law, Frank, was absolutely electrified and made sure everyone knew that finally there was someone else at family gatherings who would back him up when it came to ordering the little fish. He was in good company and didn't know it because actually everyone from our side of the family (Italians) were anchovy fans anyway ... he was a happy guy.

Strangest toppings: Scallops, beets, asparagus, hearts of palm, hamburger, any fish, eggs, beans, rice and pasta.
And yes, I'm in California and have seen all these terrible conconctions being foisted on the idiots here.

Note the topping choices include sauerkraut, pickles and something called a "Reuben Delight."

Now, for all I know a sauerkraut pizza is the tastiest thing in the world, but I have to admit I've never heard of it before today. It was kind of a relief to not see lutefisk as an option, especially as the restaurant's located in Bemidji, Minnesota.

What are some other unusual choices y'all have seen? They don't have to be gross, just weird.


Happy Joe's Pizza and Ice Cream ( http://www.happyjoes.com/menu/index.html ) offers pickles and sauerkraut, along with pineapple, lettuce, refried beans, barbecue sauce, alfredo sauce, mayonnaise and spaghetti. Here are some of their combinations:

Happy Joe's Special - Canadian bacon and sauerkraut. Sounds unusual, tastes great!

BBQ Joe - Your choice of hickory-smoked tender beef, chicken, or Canadian bacon in a tangy barbecue sauce, covered with 100% real mozzarella, provolone, and cheddar cheeses. The grand champion of barbeque!

Super Max - Beef, onions, and pickles on 100 percent real American cheese, topped with lettuce and tomatoes – a cheeseburger Italian style.

BLT (Bacon, lettuce, and tomato) - One of our most unique specialty pizzas. Hickory-smoked bacon and Canadian-style bacon topped with a variety of Happy Joe's special 100% real cheeses, baked to perfection, and topped with creamy mayonnaise, fresh lettuce, and red ripe tomatoes. Experience what everyone is talking about. Our BLT is awesome!

Vegetarian - Tomatoes, green peppers, onions, mushrooms, black olives, and sauerkraut.

Spaghetti Joe - Spaghetti on a pizza? Only Joe would have thought of this one! Spaghetti egg noodles, our famous garlic-herb butter, Italian spaghetti sauce with beef, smothered with 100% real mozzarella, provolone, and cheddar cheeses on our pan crust.

Chicken-Alfredo Pizza - Feeling a little nontraditional? Try a different pizza taste – our creamy, white Alfredo sauce, tender, succulent chicken, and a blend of 100% real cheeses to top it off, all blended together and baked until golden.

Canadian Bacon and Pineapple - Please specify BBQ sauce or regular sauce.

Taco Joe - Refried beans, taco-seasoned beef, and sausage, topped with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, and Happy Joe's own taco chips. Served with our Spicey Joe's taco sauce.

Matador - Refried beans, taco-seasoned beef, sausage, onions, and your choice of jalapeno peppers or mild chile peppers. Served with our Spicey Joe's taco sauce.

I had been trying for a couple of years to remember where I had a Reuben pizza and it was in Bemidji. It was pretty good too. My favorite is linguica and oil-cured black olives. Fred

We use black oil olives to make olives and eggs ... Mmmmmmm. Using them on pizza sounds like a great idea.

I'm surprised that Sonny hasn't had black olives on his pizza, or did I misunderstand the post? Black olives and mushrooms (fresh) are awesome.
I don't do anchovies but my mother eats them like candy, given the opportunity...

I don't think anyone's mentioned this one.

The Lynwood Cafe in Randolph, Mass., which is frequently included in ratings of best pizzas in metro Boston, makes baked bean pizza. A lot of people rave about it.

I haven't tried it. Has anyone?

Yes! I do love black olives on pizza (calamata and also the canned variety) ... but I've never tried the oil-olives on one ... sounds wonderful though.

Calamata olives are my favorite. I brought a pasta salad into work today that contains olives and Cure 81 ham. One of our local pizza joints makes a greek chicken pizza with calamatas and a white sauce, superb.

Hello All,
It may not be the strangest, but my wife made just cheese pizza the four nights ago.
I don't like just cheese.
So, I'm staring at leftover cheese pizza, hungry, very hungry.
The first night I go on a hunt and destroy mission in the frig, discovering
leftover sloppy joes meat. I put it on the cheese pizza and warm it up.
It was not great, but okay.
Then last night, I find leftover spaghetti, a meaty spaghetti, and it goes on
the virgin cheese pizza. It tasted great.
Would I make a pizza with these toppings? No, but in a moment of desperation
I would do it again.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

I see the mac and cheese pizza has been mentioned. But, how about the baked potato pizza? There is a CiCi-esque place in town that features this. Thin sliced potatoes, butter, sour cream, bacon bits and cheese on a crust. Actually, not bad, put one slice is plenty for me.

The absolute worst (and just plain WRONG) pizza I ever saw was in Los Angeles in the early 80's. A whole wheat crust topped with very thin lemon slices. I don't know if it had cheese and/or sauce of any kind, because I never got close enough to see!

My opinion....it really depends on the mood...
sometimes I want just a pepperoni pie, other times I want the "house special"....
I cant say which is better...just whatever I'm in the mood for at the time.

JMHO.

The potato/sour cream thing on pizza is a very French thing. They like to put creme fraiche(somewhat like sour cream) on pizza with lardons (similar to bacon) and thin gourmet potato slices. They had a lot of really weird but good combinations- I did not like the sliced gizzards on pizza, however.

If you haven't tried the sour cream topping- give it a whirl! It is REALLY good.

Well, salt-cured actually ... these would be canned anchovies; but I vastly prefer them *not* cooked on the pizza. I just put them on top at the table.


I think putting them on after is a better idea- I like anchovies but when they get further dehydrated on a cooked pizza, they are just WAY too salty for me.

Though I've never seen such a pizza, I think a gyros or souvlaki pizza would work.
I'd use pizza cheese with the addition of feta, and toppings of all-lamb gyros (precooked) or shredded lamb donar (lamb kabob) and red onions. I'd add honey to the pizza dough and make it a bit on the soft side. The tzatziki sauce (garlic-mint yogurt sauce) I'd put on at the table just before eating.
I think this would be good served with a greek salad.

How about the "Farmhouse Deluxe" from Pizza Hut in Hong Kong: Chicken, crab sticks, mushrooms and pineapple.

That's one versatile farm!

A big whole red tomato smack on top of our pizza. I just mentioned it in another thread. This was in Pisa, Italy, not far from the famous Leaning Tower. There was a language barrier so we just ordered a pizza and that's how it came.

That Mandarin oranges on pizza notion troubles me. Never tried it though.

In Northeast Philly where my Husband and I live.
We get the Spicy Tuna Pizza - flatbread round,raw tuna I think in citrus marinade,Siaracha mayo,scallions,and crunchy panko. Place is called Wasabi Sushi.

Another place close to us is Zeps - Armenian Cuisine. My brother and I got the Egg Pizza - cheese and sunny side up eggs. Really good and creamy.

At home we like to take thinly sliced zuccini sauted in garlic and throw it on pizza.

Stangest topping has to be this Old Bar The Hotel(Lansford,Pa) by my Gramma's house had their sewage drain dripping on their pizza maker.Yum! Scary Place. I have heard many storys about that Bar. Peanuts weren't the only thing in there machines. It's been ripped down for awhile now.
