Pizza is not a humble staple dish from Italy anymore. It is a delicacy that has reached astronomical heights as far as popularity is concerned. Its ability to be as exotic as it can by adding some humble twists such as outrageous toppings and mind-boggling crust styles. Pizza has taken the status of an art form.
Everyone is trying to get their pizza game right, from big-shot food chain companies to small pizzerias! Imagine the happiness that a flat piece of bread with cheese and toppings-as-you -like can give. When it comes to pizza toppings, we have some pretty OMG ones that are as different as the other. Here are some exotic ones that are bound to tingle your taste buds.
The ‘boxed’ pizza
When it comes to Vinnie’s Pizzeria in Brooklyn, NY, they are as novel as they come, and they bring in a fairly unique concept of bringing in a pizza in a pizza.
They believe in the concept of no waste, so you have to gobble up everything, even the box containing it! This is environmentally friendly, too, as it leaves behind no clutter. They also promise that the pizza you get is hygenic beyond imagination!
The gold-leaf pizza
Pizza is not only your go-to meal that answers your craving for something salty and cheesy. It is also an answer for people who are craving something exotic, say, a gold-infused pizza!
Nope, you do not have to wear it around your neck. It is one you order when you are feeling particularly large-hearted and feeling like spending extra on the food you love.
Available at a place at New York’s Financial District, this exotic pizza is available for $2,000 at Industry Kitchen. It promises the ultimate cuisine, including English Stilton cheese, French foie gras, and truffles topped with the sumptuous Ossetra caviar. Here all that glitters is certainly gold as they spread a 24-karat gold leaf atop in a very glittery and opulent manner. Well, you have got to thank chef Braulio Bunny for the unique creation.
The Cadbury Creme Egg pizza
This pizza is for dessert lovers. The over-the-top Cadbury Creme Egg pizza is just what you need. You can find it at Crazy Pedro’s, a pizza parlor and a dive bar in Manchester, England. It’s a 10-inch pie smeared with chocolate sauce, sprinkled with marshmallows, brownie, meringue covered with a soft creme egg, as the restaurant’s menu item available around Easter in 2016.
The Hot-dog-crusted Pizza
This Pizza Hut unveiled this meat lovers’ flavor. In 2015 a form of pizza crust had a ring of pigs-in-a-blanket. That is, it has plenty of mini hot dogs on a pizza. Well, if you can think about it, Pizza Hut can certainly make it for you. They can make into garlic knots, crusts, breadsticks, and cheese sticks all on the menu. Although you may not find it in the pigs-in-a-blanket in the menu right now, it still looms large in the memory.
The Banana Toppings Pizza
If you do not have any problems with the marriage of the opposite flavors of the sweet and savory pairing, then we guess you would quite like the idea of going for the Swedish penchant for topping their pizzas with a banana!
It’s like the advertisement you see on your television, but mom, you can’t put anything on pizza to make it healthy! Well, the Swedish have a whole new take on their pizza, and to make this unique combination a little more interesting, they add a dash of curry powder and name it Jessica Special.
Although many of us may instead pair a banana with peanut butter, it looks like a banana on your pizza is quite popular. It is available at Formaggio Pizzeria in Kungsholmen, a suburb of Stockholm. Do check it out if you happen to be there!
The Taco Pizza
Just when you thought you saw it all, as far as pizza toppings are concerned. There comes a pizza from the stable of New Jersey’s Tony Baloney’s, the taco pizza.
Well, this for the group of friends who constantly bicker as to which is better? Taco or pizza? The debate ends right there right now with the uber delicious taco pizza! It is not cheap though, that comes for $80 a pie or $10 a slice. But here’s a sneak peek at what can truly be called gastronomical heaven with a thick pizza base of the crust, carne asada chipotle sauce, and Oaxacan queso with layers of tacos, with generous doses of guacamole and thick sour cream sandwiched in between. We are drooling, are you?
