What is the most odd thing you've seen on a pizza?

And if you remember where you were, tell us. It might be regional, eh?

1987, senior year of high school. Senior trip to Paris with friends. Got off the train and was starving. Saw a place that said "American Style Pizza." We ordered it without even looking at the toppings. They brought it out and it had two raw eggs on it. I don't know what part of America they got that recipe. We still ate it.

^^^ And then they laughed at you I'm sure.

In Sorrento Italy my little brother ordered a seafood pizza and it came with clams...in the shell.

In London I was served cheese pizza with corn and peas on it.

In Nurnberg, across from the old stadium they had a pizza stand with a California Pizza. It was covered in hot chilis. Very..hot..chilis.

I don't get the corn hating. What's wrong with corn on pizza? I guess I used to think it odd, but now I honestly can't remember why.

I can deal with most things on pizza, but have come across seafood pizzas with tuna and thousand island dressing that were a bit weird (Korean pizza place in China).

ham, pineapple, canned corn, bbq chicken... pretty much anything anyone outside of italy and the greater new haven region put on what you refer to as pizza.

I had a "southwestern" pizza once that had black beans and salsa on it. It was pretty good, actually. I used to love broccoli on pizza too...

that's not pizza, that's an open burritto, or a quesadilla at best.

I'll happily take Conan's pizza any day after run-ins with the "gourmet" shops.

A blue & gold macaw. Of course the landing was a little messy, and she really shouldn't have the cheese.

I like tuna and hot chillies on mine. Can't stand large capsicum (red, yellow, green peppers) though.

I had a fruit pizza once - it was more like a fruit tart with cheesy pastry than a pizza with fruit and cheese.

Paella has a pretty wide open definition. Pizza - not so much.

The pizza I enjoyed the least was a Chicago style deep dish I was served a Pizzeria Due (around the corner from the original Pizzeria Uno. It was like eating tomato stew. Yuck!

No, it's americanized pizza.

The only requirement for pizza is dough.
