A Deep Dive into Unusual Pizza Toppings

Across the world, pizza is one of the most widely enjoyed and celebrated foods for a number of reasons, but perhaps one of its greatest strengths is its versatility. There’s no doubt that pizza is one of the most customizable dishes out there, as you can add virtually anything to it. With such creative freedom, we have seen some interesting and even controversial things added to pizza over the years. In today’s blog, we’ll be venturing into uncharted territory, and taking a look at the more eccentric, yet entertainable pizza toppings. If that sounds interesting, keep reading below for more information!


Diving headfirst into arguably the most controversial pizza topping, pineapple has caused somewhat of a public hysteria between its supporters and opposers. To this day, the heated debate persists – does pineapple, in fact, belong on pizza? Though we won’t offer our two cents, we agree that this much-discussed topping is at least worth trying. If you try pineapple on pizza and end up enjoying it, that’s great! If not, that is fine, too – we’re just here for the discussion!


Whether in sandwiches, burgers, or the likes, pickles are a common food often seen in American-inspired dishes. Despite this, they are not commonly associated with pizza – a notion that has been challenged in recent years. All manner of chefs and at-home cooks alike have found their own, unique ways of incorporating pickles into pizza. Niche recipes have even reinvented the famous McDonald’s Big Mac into pizza form, with toppings such as hamburger meat, shredded lettuce, and of course, pickles. We admit that it’s unusual seeing pickles on pizza, but if it works for your taste buds, it works!

Breakfast Foods

When we say that pizza is one of the more versatile foods out there, the breakfast pizza is what we mean. This iteration of pizza quite literally allows you to have pizza for breakfast, serving up everything from eggs and hash browns to sausage and bacon in a mouthwatering fashion. While the dough is often prepared the same as standard pizzas, most incarnations of breakfast pizza ditch the ubiquitous tomato-oriented sauce – quite literally giving you the taste of breakfast on a pizza!
