Unfortunate Pizza ideas

1) Cheesesteak Pizza - That's Philly Cheesesteak meat as a topping.
2) Barbeque Chicken Pizza
3) Mexican Pizza - That's cold shredded iceburg lettuce, cold diced tomatoes, and taco meat as a topping.

  1. Ham and pineapple is the one that makes my b**t draw up...gahhh.

    There's Mexican pizza and Mexican pizza, though - a nice cornmeal crust, olives, peppers, tomato and cheese and cooked chorizo makes a pretty decent dish. I *DO* agree about "barbecue" chicken (or "barbecue" anything, assuming that the name refers to the use of a sweet goopy fake-smoky sauce and some form of meat).

    1. Y'know, I had an ex-boyfriend introduce me to pepperoni and pineapple. I kinda liked it. Which freaked me out.

      In Scotland they put corn and tuna fish on their pizza. That sent me screaming for the door.

      And they had frozen pizza put out by Heinz that came with baked beans on it. Very weird.

      1. Fried eggs, [formerly] frozen peas and carrots. London, 1981 or so.

        1. Sundried tomatoes or artichoke hearts.
          Alfredo sauce.
          Taco meat & lettuce.

          None of the above belongs on pizza, as far as I'm concerned.

            artichokes are one of my fav pizza toppings.
            and I can go for sundried tomatoes periodically too.

            I don't really understand the whole fried egg on pizza thing you see in France. And personally, I hate pineapple on pizza

              No! Shrimp & artichoke 'za is excellent!!

                I'm with you on the alredo sauce, chicken, taco meat and lettuce.

                But a white pizza with broccoli and garlic is one of my all time favorites, and artichoke hearts are another one of my favorite toppings.

                Not sure about the sun dried tomatoes, but now I'm going to have to try it!

              2. I don't know, they make some pretty good artichoke pizzas in Italy, so I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss them. Agree otherwise.
                I've been wondering about the various ethnic pizzas and may even do a tasting. In my neighborhood we have a Thai pizza place with chicken/chili/basil pizza and I recently saw a Chinese pizza place too. Wonder if any of them are any good.
