Top 10 Weirdest... er... Most Unique Pizza Toppings: #10
Yes, you can put anything on a pizza at home, but how many crazy pizza entrepreneurs are there out there in the wild pizza world who actually think that some totally disgusting ingredient as a pizza topping is their expressway to fame and fortune? It is hard to believe at a time when the traditional Neapolitan pizzaioli have started their own international association to ensure that the true Napoli Margherita pizza of mozzarella, tomato and basil is the only version worthy of the status of being called a true pizza, and there are millions of pizza enthusiasts supporting the classic best New York pizza, the classic best Chicago pizza, etc. there are some lunatic pizzaioli (in name only) who are staying up at night trying to concoct the most disgusting and nauseating combinations of crud to slap on their pizzas for the sake of being "innovative." If this is innovation, then kindly remove me from this century. I've had enough! Stop the pizza insanity!
Of course, nothing goes better with pizza than beer, so you might want to start off on your culinary tour of the 10 most vomit triggering pizzas by stocking up on Tom Seefurth's Mamma Mia Pizza Beer which takes an otherwise nice low-alcohol beer, and adds garlic, basil, oregano, and yes, Virginia... tomato sauce! The only thing missing is mozzarella and that's probably because Tom couldn't make the mozzarella pieces small enough to not clog your throat on the way down. I think I'm going to be sick and I haven't even started the countdown yet!
Here are the Top 10 weirdest... er... most unique pizza toppings that you can buy right from a pizzeria or a grocery store. I have to warn you... some of these pizza toppings might make you want to lose your taste for pizza! If I can keep my breakfast down long enough to write this, we'll start at the revolting number 10 and count all the way up to the abominable, revolting, sickening, appalling, repulsive, offensive, dreadful, horrendous, detestable, loathsome, nasty, awful, distasteful, obnoxious, noisome, unholy, obscene, repugnant, despicable, atrocious, heinous, barbarous, horrible, nauseating, and fully retch-inducing number 1!
10: Frogs Legs - Eco Restaurant, London, UK
Next time you're in London make sure to steer well away from 162 Clapham High Street in Clapham, not only because it sounds like a swine venereal disease, but because if you happen to stroll by the windows of Eco Restaurant you might by accident actually see one of their famous "The Hopper" pizzas being served, although I doubt that anyone would have the actual intestinal fortitude to eat one. Yes, that hopper is definitely what you thought it was, eight count 'em eight frogs legs with capers and an equally stomach churning "anchovy sorbet" which definitely has to count way up there with all of the most emetogenic preparations available at any Clapham chemist's shoppe!
