I don't like to get too unusual, probably the most non-traditional stuff I've put on a pizza are sopressata, bbq brisket or chicken. Nothing ridiculous. Regardless of the toppings, I love hot sauce like Tapatio on pizza.

    One of my favorite pizzas was at Orgasmica Pizza in San Francisco ( "we never fake it" is their motto").  The best there IMO was the one topped with refried beans which as I recall was a Brazilian style.  I make it at home now.
    The other was from a pizzaria in Mason OH that had a mashed potato & butter topping with cheeses that was really awesome.

        I can't say I really enjoyed it but we had a pizza in High Wickham (UK) that had corn on it of all things.

          I had that at a Pizzeria Uno here in town once. It wasn't that spectacular. But if done well, the concept is pretty appealing to me, just never thought to make it at home.

            As I've said above, my favorite unusual pie is a potato pie...in this case, thin french fries or potato chip size thin potstoes on dough with salt , pepper, olive oil and Rosemary...had i tin several locations in Italy...and strange as it sounds, delicious!

              I don't think they are unusual at all, and would be a must at a true Italian joint, egg plant, sliced tomatoes. I also like dried tomatoes. Hard to find them though in commoner places. Also like cauliflower or artichoke.

              Here in Pittsburgh, it's the pierogi pizza !!! Mashed potatos!

              a lot of places here offer Brockley, but I don't like it on pizza.

                  Bake a crust. Let it cool. Spread with mayo. Add chopped tomatoes (seeded), shredded lettuce, and chopped bacon

                    Here's an old pic that I may have posted before. It's very thin sliced Red Bliss potatoes (slightly blanched) and black olives (pretty poor distribution) on my regular crust. The unround shape is to make the most of my large rectangular Fibrament stone. Subsequent versions always include a bit of Rosemary due to leethebard's suggestion. It is indeed a very delicious topping for a white pizza.

                      That pie looks perfect, porkbeaks. Glad you enjoed the potato pie with rosemary. You don't see potato pies around much, but those who try it usually love it!!!

                        My Bride makes a Veggie Appetizer pie.
                        Bakes a crust and lets it cool or uses a Boboli.
                        Spreads it with cream cheese that been seasoned. She uses seasoned salt but you could use most anything you like.
                        Covers the pie with raw veggies like Broccoli, Cauliflower, Sliced Mushrooms. Shredded Carrots, thin sliced Cukes, thin sliced Seeded Roma Tomatoes, Slicd Peppers or just any veggies you like.
                        Cuts in 3x3 or 4x4 squares and presents it as an appetizer tray. Always a big hit
                        Just had an inspiration!
                        You could do it with cream cheese and fresh fruit too!

                          There is a small local chain called Bishop's. They have a steak pizza where they do the usual steak, onion, peppers, mushrooms, etc. They put seasoned curly fries like Arby's on it. It's really good.
                           
                          There's another place by me where they make a hoagie pizza. Regular pie topped with capicola, salami, pepperoni. After they take it out, they add lettuce, tomato, onion and hot peppers.

                            What about Flammenkueche, an Alsatian kind of pizza, made on thin crust, cream, onions and bacon. (no tomato and often no cheese!) (Also known as onion tarts although it is served in small slices like pizza).

                                I forget where it was (somewhere in Los Angeles), but they offered lamb as a topping. Not super crazy, but pretty unique. I don't think I'd ever seen that before.

                                  A place around here has Peanut Butter & Jelly pizza.
                                  For me, I never get a pizza with cheese.  It's Chicken, Onions and Sweet Peppers for me!
