Interesting pizza combos?

I've been making pizza at home and it is fantastic- but i must admit that i have gone uninspired.

besides roasted veggies with goat cheese/feta, green pesto and chicken etc and the standard pepperoni, meatball, salami- what do you put on your pizza?

i heard someone had grapes in their pizza. how does that work? what type of cheese??

  1. I tend to make the "classics" when I do zzas. (pepperoni, shrooms, etc) but the other night we got creative. A little mozz, a(very) little gorgonzola and thinly sliced pears. After the pie came out, a handful of arugula and a drizzle of olive oil. Delicious and different.

    1. a couple ideas:
      -caramelized onions, figs, gorgonzola, apples
      -ricotta, thyme, taleggio, and wild mushrooms
      -the ubiquitous bbq chicken pizza with bbq sauce, chicken, mozzarella, and scallions

      i've never made pizza with grapes but here is a link to one from epicurious:

      1. I've been adding shaved fennel to pizzas lately.

            Yep. I brown some sausage, sometimes sliced mushrooms, shaved garlic, maybe Kalamata or other kind of olives. Not a lot of sauce. Making myself hungry :)

        2. Cashews are fabulous on any pizza!

          1. Fig, goat cheese, pancetta or bacon, and a little drizzle of balsamic. Super good. We make this all the time during fig season.
