Unique, cool, unusual pizza toppings
Hi.I'm having a pizza party in a few weeks and all the pies will be pretty straight forward.I'm trying to come up with one killer pizza that will make everybody flip! Here is my menu so far.
Sausage and rabe.
Potato with rosemary and anchovies
Our favorite is swirls of both tomato and pesto sauce with artichoke hearts, cremini mushrooms, fresh mozzarella and goat cheese, and spinach.

favourite, completely inauthentic, non-Italian, unusual topping: tandoori chicken (deboned), drizzled with raita- served at a chain restaurant of all places. Haven't made it at home, and haven't ordered it for years, but it's still on the menu, although it's now called a flatbread instead of a pizza. Not sure if they're still using the original recipe. Might give me an excuse to step foot inside: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jlunar/4... Mind you, since the rest of your pizzas sound interesting, but still have a traditional Italian flavour profile, this type of topping might not fit with rest of your menu.
I also like arugula on my pizza (sometimes added after baking), and mixed wild mushrooms, which I enjoy even more on non-tomato sauced pizza.
Noticed one pizzeria in Toronto offering fiddleheads as a topping recently, but I haven't tried it out yet.
