11 Toppings That Have No Business Being On a Pizza
Pizza is one of the world's favorite foods. From kids, to animals, to adults, to everyone in between, we all love pizza.
However sometimes, the love goes too far. It just goes too far with the craziness, the creativity, and variety of toppings people decide to throw on a perfectly good pizza pie.
Without further ado, here are toppings that have no business being on our beloved pizza!
SPAM® is one of those polarizing ingredients: You either love it or you hate it. There is no in-between when it comes to this canned ham concoction.
Therefore, it has no business being on a nice cheese pizza. Unless you're into that kind of thing.
10. Mini Cheeseburger Stuffed Crust
Pizza Huts in the Middle East debuted The Crown Crust Pizza with mini cheeseburgers as the crust.
The toppings on the main part of the pizza are themed with the crust— so burger toppings on the cheeseburger crust, complete with special sauce.
Sounds like a junk food fan's dream!
9. Fish & Potato Chips
This ain't your ordinary fish and chip dinner!
This pizza from Indonesia is topped with pieces of cooked fish are accompanied by potato chips.
8. Pineapple & Cheese Stuffed Crust
This gem is called The Golden Happiness Pizza, and it is a pineapple and cheese stuffed crust pie from Malaysia.
Pineapple and cheese stuffed crust sounds worse than the typical ham and pineapple combination pizza!
7. Squid Ink
Yes, squid ink pizza.
Squid ink is considered a delicacy in Italian and other cuisines, but this squid ink pizza comes from Japan.
The tomato sauce is replaced with the blackest squid ink sauce you have ever seen. Add in the shrimp, some mysterious white chunks, and enjoy??
Lettuce? On a pizza?
Lettuce is reserved for salads and an occasional sandwich topping, but NEVER a pizza topping. That is just plain wrong.
4. Emu & Kangaroo
Where else would you find emu and kangaroo as a viable pizza topping besides down under in Australia?
Sydney's Australian Hotel serves The Coat of Arms pizza. It's a half emu, half kangaroo pie topped with bush tomato, peppers, and cranberries.
No thank you!
3. $1,000 Worth of Luxury Items
This is the world's most expensive pizza, literally. It will set you back $1,000, and is topped with 6 types of caviar, creme fraiche, chives, and fresh lobster.
Nino's Bellissima in New York City makes this extravagant pizza, and if you can't afford a whole pie, one slice will cost $125!
2. Everything But the Kitchen Sink
This Pizza Hut mega monster of a pizza hails from Japan. It literally has so many ingredients, it's insane. The crust is made of hot dogs wrapped in bacon and rolls of molten cheese.
The toppings include: Hamburgers, cheese rolls, sausage, bacon, ham, bacon bits, mushroom, onion, pepper, garlic, and tomato sauce.
Ketchup and maple syrup are available as extra toppings. Seriously!
1. Poisonous Venom of Spiders, Scorpions, & Snakes
Spiders, scorpions, and snakes, oh my!
A chef in Zurich, Switzerland, Ismail Ertekin, invented a pizza in 2012 which featured toppings made from the poisonous venom of spiders, scorpions and snakes, supposedly for medicinal purposes.
He was soon ordered to stop making the pizzas, but you have to wonder what "medical properties" these poisons could have had? Especially on an innocent pizza!
