Bizarre Pizza Toppings Ordered in the U.S.

Friday Aug 20, 2021

At Hungry Howie's® we love all things pizza, including weird pizza toppings. The different cheeses, all different crusts, and of course, all the different toppings are what makes each pie so delicious. To us, there's not necessarily any topping that is too bizarre to go on a pizza. However, some are more unusual than others. But we say to each their own. If you find a weird pizza topping you like, go for it. If it's your new favorite, we think that's awesome.

Over the years we have seen some pretty interesting topping choices. While we can't say that we have tried them all, we're definitely putting them on our bucket list. Here are the most bizarre combinations we have seen on pizzas. They might inspire you to try something new and different on your next order.

Weird Pizza Toppings

What is weird to you may be a classic to another person. Once you find a pizza topping you love, you're likely to stick with it. It becomes part of your pizza tradition. If you're looking to shake up your pizza routine and try something new, check out the toppings that some people just can't get enough of below.

1. Macaroni and Cheese

Yes, some people swear by adding macaroni and cheese to the top of their pies. When you think about it, it makes sense. Who doesn't love even more cheese on their pizza and the pasta adds an extra yum-factor. You've probably heard of baked ziti or penne vodka on pizza–why not try the macaroni and cheese twist?

2. Apples

We know this sounds like an extra-weird pizza topping, but hear us out on this one. Pair it with goat cheese, arugula, and a balsamic glaze and you have yourself a delicious salad pie. Light, fresh, and absolutely delicious. 

3. Coconut Flakes

Surely, coconut flakes don't go on pizza. But for all you Hawaiian pineapple pizza lovers out there, you might want to give it a try. The coconut flakes complement the pineapple perfectly, adding to the island taste. The sweetness also balances out the savory flavors of cheese and meat. 

4. Lobster

You may have tried lobster macaroni and cheese, but have you ever considered adding lobster to your pizza? We already know that it goes great with melty, gooey, cheese, so why not add it to the top of your pie? There are people that swear by it, and hey, we're all for it.

5. Corn

Roasted corn makes an excellent pizza topping, even if it sounds a little weird. Add some ham and cracked pepper along with it and you have another sweet and savory pie on your hands. 

6. Duck Confit 

People often associate duck with expensive restaurants, but did you know that duck confit goes well on pizza? The fat melts right into the cheese and makes for a pizza that's extra hearty. A good choice for cooler weather when you're looking to feel cozy and full.

7. Artichoke Hearts

Artichoke hearts bring a good old veggie pizza to an entirely new level. Tender, delicious, and incredibly healthy, if you're a vegetable lover consider adding them to your next pie. They also go well with meat toppings like sausage or meatballs.

8. A Poached Egg

When you add a poached egg to the top of a pizza loaded with ham, sausage, meatballs, or veggies, it brings the entire pie together. When considering weird pizza toppings, poached eggs are definitely a must-try. 

9. Potatoes

Speaking of poached eggs, what sounds better than a breakfast pizza? Add potatoes along with poached eggs and ham or sausage and you have a breakfast pie that's to die for. You might be wondering right now why you haven't thought of this before. Just because we call it a breakfast pie, though, doesn't mean it isn't delicious at any time of day. 

10. Peas

Peas are another one of those weird pizza toppings that you may not have considered. But think about it. Snap peas add a fresh crunch to a veggie pizza, and green peas can add a little something extra to a white pie. If you haven't tried them yet, you may want to make peas next on your list. 

Endless Topping Combinations

We found ten weird pizza toppings, but there are endless combinations out there that individuals put together to create their favorite pies. If you want to build a pizza masterpiece that is both delicious and unique, try experimenting with your orders. We say if you come up with something amazing that's never been done before you name it after yourself! You could be famous for creating the next famous pizza.
