Toppings on pizza?

Anyone else like lemon juice on pizza? Wondering if I'm the only one. I like to top it with red pepper flakes,parm cheese, garlic powder, and LEMON juice. Am I the only odd ball or are there other out there or are there others out there? Most people look at me like I'm crazy.I think it tastes AMAZING, can't have a pizza w/out it. Just adds a delicious kick. What other crazy toppings do you like?

  1. I've never seen anyone put lemon juice on pizza in my close to 60 years of eating it but, as my SIL says, "whatever floats your boat".

      Ditto. Including the "in my close to years of eating it".

    2. Hey, I LOVE lemon juice!!! I use it nearly as often as I use garlic, but I've never tried it on pizza. Oh, forgot, in my 60 something years . . . . What kind of pizza do you put it on? I'm a combo kind of pizza freak - pepperoni, sausage, veggies, etc. Wonder how lemon juice would be on that??

      1. Never thought of it, but why not? Especially on a veggie pizza, which is all Mrs. O eats these days, and I know she loves lemon juice - heaven for her is when we have lemons on the trees in the driveway, which is right now. Puts it on everything, so now I'll suggest pizza.

          Will I love your posts and admire and respect you, but I can't resist. Do you really have lemon trees growing in your driveway? Hadn't thought about it on pizza and probably won't try it, but I love it on fried seafood.

        2. On a white pizza, why not? But I don't think I'd care for it as a topper to any tomato preparation. The tomato lends enough mild acidity for me.

            That sounds amazing! I have rarely eaten white pizza but topped with lemon juice sounds amazing! Thanks for the idea!

          2. It's never occurred to me, but I put lemon juice on a lot of things to perk up the flavor, so why not?
