Weirdest Topping People Put On Their Pizza

Although traditional pizza toppings still dominate pizza delivery and dine-in orders, many people turn to unique options to change it up. 

  • Traditional toppings make unique pizzas when combined in unexpected ways. 
  • Unique pizzas can be eaten for any meal of the day when you add odd pizza toppings. 
  • What some areas consider normal toppings are considered weird in other places. 

For many people, pizza is one of the foods you can eat every day and never tire of the taste. As a comfort food, party food, or treat, pizza has been around a long time and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. Even though some people stick with the tried-and-true results of traditional pizza toppings, others decide to think outside the box to give the taste buds a workout. Whether you choose to switch up the combinations, try a version of pizza for every meal of the day, or just try a flavor you have never attempted before, some of the weirdest things people decide to put on pizza may become your new favorite. 

You Put WHAT On Your Pizza? 

It’s a long-standing joke that people are either pro-pineapple or anti-pineapple on pizza, but in the world of potential pizza toppings, pineapple doesn’t even come close to being the most bizarre choice. From recreating some of your favorite meals in pizza form to just choosing new flavors to explore, choosing odd pizza toppings for your dish can open up a whole new world of possibilities. 

Fascinating Flavor Combinations

One of the easiest ways to experiment with odd or funny pizza toppings is to take combinations that are already mainstream and switch them up to see if the new combination provides a delicious and unexpected twist. Pairing something sweet with something savory, as with the sometimes-infamous ham and pineapple pizza, makes for a flavorful and exciting combination. You can also try out the idea of including something salty, something sweet, something spicy, and something savory. This idea is especially impactful if the ingredients are also unexpected. 

One example that has been gaining popularity is the combination of bananas and curry. Although it may sound strange, the result is still a savory dish that touches upon all senses. Another fruit and meat pizza combo intended as a savory dish and not a dessert involves the combination of spinach, strawberries, and salmon, subbing goat cheese for cheddar, and pesto for tomato sauce. If you dare, try a pizza with peanut butter, bacon, and provolone for a protein sensation. When you read the sound of these combinations together, it may not make sense, but if once you take a bite it all comes together in an unexpected way. 

Mouthwatering Meat and Veggies

When someone mentions weird pizza toppings, for many people, the mind immediately jumps to meat. Although in the United States, processed meat, such as pepperoni, sausage, Italian sausage, ham, bacon, and ground beef, are commonly used as toppings on traditional pizza; some parts of the country and the world that use more exotic meat added flavor. You’ve probably seen buffalo chicken pizza on the menu at your favorite pizza restaurant and may have even tried a pie covered in a seafood medley, such as lobster, crab, shrimp, clams, and mussels. 

Some specialty restaurants go beyond the typical meat options and allow you to sample flavors on your pie you can’t find on the menu at other restaurants. One of these more exotic options you can find on some menus is alligator or crocodile. If you’re in Australia, don’t be surprised to see kangaroo show up as an option. Other restaurants may have wild game up for grabs, from squirrel to deer or caribou. The most upscale pizza place may serve up salmon with caviar, while you may find hotdogs or spam at a restaurant with an entirely different atmosphere. No matter which place you try, you can be sure to get a brand new experience when you ask for specialty meat on your pizza. 

Fantastically Flavorful Fruits

The standard pizza includes tomato sauce, cheese, and some combination of meat and vegetables upon request. When you stick with those traditional options, you are missing out on a world of flavor. One of the most delicious ways to create a palate-pleasing pizza that is different from the norm is to add flavorful fruit. Other than the pineapple that comes on a Hawaiian pizza, most people don’t consider fruit to be a typical topping. When mixed with the right combination of other toppings, fruit can be a delightfully fulfilling option. 

Picture the flavor of peaches and goat cheese or figs with prosciutto, or go really outside the box and imagine grapes mixed with gorgonzola and red peppers or pears with walnuts and caramelized onions. Any fruit, cheese, and meat combination that could be included on a charcuterie tray could make it onto your fruit-based pizza ingredient list. 

Amazing at Any Time of Day

When you think of pizza, you probably think of lunch or dinner. You may even picture leftover pizza as a meal for the next day. Another choice for weird pizza toppings to consider is a breakfast or dessert pizza. If you’re a bagel lover, try a pizza with cream cheese and everything bagel seasoning. Those who prefer a heartier protein breakfast may love bacon or sauce, eggs, and cheddar. Dessert pizzas are also an odd choice and can be eaten in the morning like a pastry or after a meal. Some of the most delicious varieties are modeled after pies, such as cherry or apple pie or a scrumptious Bavarian cream. 

For another twist, why not turn your favorite meal or side dish into a pizza topping? If you’re craving a hearty dinner but also have pizza on the brain, consider combining the two. Whether your comfort food is macaroni and cheese, tacos, lasagna, or a cobb salad, the same ingredients that create your favorite food can become pizza toppers for a strange but delicious result.
