corned beef and cabbage on a pizza

On St. Patrick's Day in Boston it is possible to buy corned beef and cabbage pizza, at least at the Penguin Cafe on Huntington. And it was recently and hopefully will be again soon the "special pizza of the week" there. No tomato sauce of course.

  1. That sounds disgusting. While I Love corned beef and cabbage I can't imagine it on a pizza. Just between two pieces of pumpernickel bread.

      I do a reuben pizza every year on St Pats day, it's pretty good and several friends always remember to pester me for some. Haven't seen it on any menus, let me know if you do.

        A buddy at Pete's Pub brought in a reuben pizza from Lucky's last night. Corn beef hash, bacon, cheese, mustard and Thousand Island. Everyone who had a slice had the same initial reaction" what the F----?" But the funny thing is, it really did taste pretty good.

    2. That's really gross. I'd never eat anything like that.

      Uh, how late are they open? ;-D

      1. Foley's in the South End used to do a steak and mashed potatoes pizza, which was pretty bad. It's off the menu these days. The house pizza (simple marinara, pesto drizzle, cheese) is pretty good in that homemade pizza kind of way, good with beers and the game on.

          There was a place in the first block of Hanover (gone now) that had potato gnocchi pizza. What the???? A friend of mine loved it!

            Thinly sliced potato pizza with rosemary and olive oil (that's all, no tomatoes or cheese) is authentically Italian. My wife first had it there and fell in love with it. I make it for her as a special treat once in a while.

            City Slicker Cafe has a pizza like that, w/ garlic steak, roasted potatoes, blue cheese & shallots. I've not had it though.

          3. I feel like I may I have seen that at Crazy Dough, the pizza place upstairs in the Garage, in Harv Sq.

            1. Come on up to Maine and enjoy saurkraut pizza at Pats Pizza every day! Eleven locations, too. (Really)
