Unique Pizza Toppings

I feel like this topic has probably been done to death but at the same time I really don't care and I'd rather get input from the Boston portion of the community anyway.

I'm obsessed with these new wheat flatbread pizza crusts I found recently. Of course the name escapes me right now, they're like a healthier version of Boboli pizza crusts you see everywhere.

I'm really into weird and different pizza toppings and I was wondering if anyone had any cool ideas? These aren't very unique, but these are the pizzas I've made thus far:

- Chorizo & Pineapple
- Buffalo Chicken
- Thai Style Shrimp

Any other ideas would be great! The weirder the better. Dessert pizzas are also welcome.

  1. How about crabmeat; gorgonzola and spinach.

      Love all 3 of those separately but I have angst about combining dairy and seafood.

      My other spins on these: gorgonzola, balsamic glaze and figs and crabmeat with oyster mushrooms.

    2. How about bacon, cheddar cheese, mashed potatoes, and scallions (Irish pizza at Common Ground, Allston).

        Bad Abbotts in Quincy used to have a smashed potato pizza, just as you, describe on their specials list - Delicious!!!

      2. all with tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella:

        roasted red peppers, hot peppers, grilled chicken

        roasted garlic, sundried tomatoes, fresh rosemary, fresh sage

        sliced tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh chopped garlic

        1. One of my frequently flying topping ingredients for pizza is sauerkraut. I know, I know...but it's really good mingled with any number of other toppings. Really. Cay

            Im interested, perhaps with some good spicy mustard and chanterelles?

              My real preference is Canadian bacon/ham, good black olives, pineapple, onions and sauerkraut. Sauce and cheese as one sees fits. Yum.

              But the chanterelles sounds really delicious. But with anything pickled? I've always found pickled flavors to kill delicate mushrooms. Do tell if you've found differently.

              some months ago while at costco, i saw a man load his pizza up with all the condiments usually associated with hot dogs including ketchup, mustard, onion, relish, and yes... sauerkraut. At first i thought - eww, gross. Then I realized that except for the cheese, his pepperoni slice wasn't all that different than my polish dog.

                I go for kimchee, so kind of like sauerkraut. Kimchee and fontina, mmmmm....

              2. - Duck confit, plum sauce, watercress.
                - Nutella + fruit
                - Pumpkin and ham
                - Goat brie, prosciutto, egg, avocado
