I have actually had mayonnaise pizza in Japan, and it was actually pretty good.

Kewpie brand Japaneese mayo is pretty good. Not like you'd think for US Mayo.

But on pizza..well...heck in Japan  that's nothing new, they put Kewpie mayo on lots of things.

We have a BLT pizza here in town with bacon, lettuce and tomato and mayo for the sauce.  Quite tasty.

They also put corn and squid on their pizzas. Hell, I think one of them has squid ink instead of tomato sauce.

Mayo and corn are apparently common pizza toppings in Moldova. Mayo is one of the three things I will not ever eat, in addition to eggs and offal, but the corn was basically drained whole kernel canned stuff... and it was surprisingly good.

I can't wait for the opportunity to go back to Eastern Europe, dammit.

fish scales and corn are also popular toppings. slanty eyed freaks.

I think the canned corn thing is a holdover from the post-WWII era. In Japan, at least.

That's just a step too weird for me. I know, Mayo is relatively tame to some of the things that ends up in Japanese foods (i.e. Pit Viper Venom Ice Cream) but, no, it's just too strange. I'd eat the sea food pizza I've heard of, I might even try the squid ink ice cream.

But the only place for mayo is in the fridge for guests, nowhere near my pizza.

Kewpie mayo is awesome. Once I discovered it, I can't go back to any of the American brands.

I think the corn on pizza thing is pretty much all of Asia. I had an American colleague when I was working in Vietnam who thought corn on pizza was great and would order all of his pizza with corn. I don't like the combo of corn on pizza, but seafood pizzas are pretty much the bomb.

It must be something from my childhood, but grandma would make salami and Miracle Whip. For some reason I still like MW with salami. Otherwise it's mustard, spicy please.

Dominos Japan has plenty of regular pizzas and some of them are actually edible. The only problem is that US-style pizza is ridiculously expensive; Dominos and Pizza Hut are $20 for a plain large and it only gets worse.

I was recently linked to an NY-style pizza place in Tokyo that charges $30+ for a plain large and up to $50 for many of their topped pizzas. It's a crime.

Kewpie mayo on a seafood pizza would probably be pretty decent. Kraft or something would be terrible.

With the exception of the shrimp pizza (hurk), I would nom every one of those. The first one just sounds like a giant potato skin, which is a good idea.

My favorite by-the-slice shop in San Diego makes one with buffalo sauce instead of marinara, chicken, mozzarella, and stripes of ranch drizzled on top. With fresh cilantro, sometimes.

usernameguy: I have actually had mayonnaise pizza in Japan, and it was actually pretty good.

Kewpie Mayo + fried bean sprouts = crazy delicious. yes, really. of course, I haven't had it since it was 12 since it's also about a zillion calories despite having bean sprouts. And, for that matter, this isnt the early 90s or earlier any more, the japanese shouldnt be eating mayo either. the days of petite japanese are long gone, hello large portions and junk food.
 
2013-01-20 02:45:29 AM
Hey, Dominos is the best of the chain pizza joints around here. Tasty homemade crust, toppings that look and taste fresh, and reasonably priced.

That said, I'd eat all of the above pizzas. We can't say much when people here put nasty anchovies on their pizzas.

First, mayonnaise is a craze.
Then, it seems like a pretty good idea and mayonnaise starts looking like the answer to all of our problems.
Eventually, mayonnaise turns sour and tries to take over the world.

Sorry to wreck the mytho for all the wapanese dwelling the thread...

But kewpie is as far from mayo that can be. Other japanese brand are closer to the real recipe most notably the one served with fried potatoes at bikkury donkey. But as far as kewpie goes. it`s nothing more than vomit mixed with diarrea and snot from an ebola patient. Even the japanese can`t go back to this crap on tube after tasting real mayonaise. Try to find the amora or lesieur french brand to have a go at real homemade like mayonaise....

and seriously... put kewpie back where it belong... in the transmission casing of russian trucks...

Ok... but I want you to know that if there is a jar on your table that says "Homemade Mayo", I'm NOT trying it.  :P

cowgirl toffee: johne3819: cowgirl toffee: tinfoil-hat maggie: cowgirl toffee: davidphogan: Notabunny: Ghhaaa! The thought of eating mayonnaise makes me a little queasy.

Mayo is bad enough, but on a pizza? Hell no.

I used to put vanilla pudding in a mayonnaise jar and eat it in public.

Okay you're disturbed enough I wanna I wanna hang out with you.

You, me, and the farker who ate the tube of chapstick should do lunch one day. :)

As someone who lives near Pizza Hut in Nagano, I can attest that the following things are excellent on pizza.
Seafood, mayo (kewpie of course), corn, bulgogi beef, leeks, squid ink, okra, teriyaki chicken, and if you're really feeling fat go for the PIzza Hut pizza which includes mini sausages stuffed into the crust. Take that, fat American ingenuity!

I've concluded that the best versions of American fast food are the ones specifically tailored for the various Asian markets. Asian Pizza Hut offerings are superior, ditto for KFC and even McDonald's has better choices.

Bomb Head Mohammed: usernameguy: I have actually had mayonnaise pizza in Japan, and it was actually pretty good.

Kewpie Mayo + fried bean sprouts = crazy delicious. yes, really. of course, I haven't had it since it was 12 since it's also about a zillion calories despite having bean sprouts. And, for that matter, this isnt the early 90s or earlier any more, the japanese shouldnt be eating mayo either. the days of petite japanese are long gone, hello large portions and junk food.


...I'm still shocked when I see a large Japanese person here.  I've seen maybe 5 of them in the last 4 months.

/japanese mayo is delicious, for the record

dokool: Dominos Japan has plenty of regular pizzas and some of them are actually edible. The only problem is that US-style pizza is ridiculously expensive; Dominos and Pizza Hut are $20 for a plain large and it only gets worse.

I was recently linked to an NY-style pizza place in Tokyo that charges $30+ for a plain large and up to $50 for many of their topped pizzas. It's a crime.


Everything's more expensive in Japan. They need the money to pay for the damage every time Godzilla or Mothra attacks, and the fuel costs for the Power Rangers zords isn't cheap.

First, mayonnaise is a craze.
Then, it seems like a pretty good idea and mayonnaise starts looking like the answer to all of our problems.
Eventually, mayonnaise turns sour and tries to take over the world.

Every now and then, me and my best friend special order ourselves a Tuna Pizza from the local Pizza Place. Her family likes it too.
Before you get all grossed out, think of it as an open faced Tuna Melt.
They put light sauce on the dough, and use the same tuna that they use in their grinders, so, there is some mayo in it.
I have them put Onions and Mushrooms on top, then the cheese.

It gets a little soggy on the crust, but, it is pretty tasty!

I have a friend who's been stationed in Japan with the Army for the past 3 years or so, and he's told me that most of the stuff there is more expensive than it is in the US. This is just anecdotal, so don't take it as the gospel truth.

I can't believe none of you have really had mayo on pizza - I've been doing that for over 20 years!!
It doesn't matter what pizza - the mayo goes on. It's glorious with fries (English cut thick chips if you may)
and of course, there's also garlic mayo too. Despite several diet changes over the years, there's never been a time when mayo on pizzas was a wrong thing to do. Nowadays, I have a dairy-free mayo, but it's just as good as the regular mayo and right now, there's two tubs of it in the fridge here.
I also LOVE my own home-made cheese pasties - and yes, they get a good dose of mayo - chips or no. I have a fairly restrictive diet, but there's always room for a little mayo on top of pizza - heck, I know what I'm eating later - thanks for the headsup on that!

Depends on if you're trying to live like an American here, or more Japanese.  Stuff that's typical in a Western diet like meat can be stupid expensive (especially if it's beef).  But if you tend to eat more Japanese style food, it's not nearly so bad.

Of course, if you want delicious, cheap and awful for you food you can pretty much live off food from the conbini.

Oh man, did we live at t 7-11 down the block. One time my friends and I got dressed up in yukata at 2 am in the morning (yes, we're white) to go get some of the huge alcoholic sodas in cans. The clerk was so shocked he just stared- didn't even say irasshai.

bborchar: LadyBelgara: rynthetyn: FuryOfFirestorm: dokool: Dominos Japan has plenty of regular pizzas and some of them are actually edible. The only problem is that US-style pizza is ridiculously expensive; Dominos and Pizza Hut are $20 for a plain large and it only gets worse.

I was recently linked to an NY-style pizza place in Tokyo that charges $30+ for a plain large and up to $50 for many of their topped pizzas. It's a crime.

Everything's more expensive in Japan. They need the money to pay for the damage every time Godzilla or Mothra attacks, and the fuel costs for the Power Rangers zords isn't cheap.

Jokes about Mothra aside, is everything more expensive in Japan or is it not? Every American seems to think it's more expensive, but on the other hand my Vietnamese friends found the prices reasonable compared to Vietnam and Vietnam is pretty cheap.  Do Americans just tend to do the more expensive stuff?

Depends on if you're trying to live like an American here, or more Japanese.  Stuff that's typical in a Western diet like meat can be stupid expensive (especially if it's beef).  But if you tend to eat more Japanese style food, it's not nearly so bad.

Of course, if you want delicious, cheap and awful for you food you can pretty much live off food from the conbini.

That's hysterical.  Sometimes breaking their brains is really fun.  If you're gonna get stared at for being a gaijin, might as well make it worth it occasionally.  What part of Japan were you in?

Also, Japan is cheap if you eat like the locals. I lived there on $700 a month (not including rent). The key is to get a rice maker, and when you eat out, eat out family style in groups. Most restaurants are made that way. My typical breakfast was homemade onigiri with tuna fish or something else. And I'd occasionally get a Big Mac meal when I craved greasy food. It also helps to not live in Tokyo, that place is ridiculously expensive (really glad I lived in Nagoya).

I took the rice cooker with me when I left...it was just a cheapy one, but it's been 10 years and it's still going strong. We did some crazy things while we were there in college. I lived next door to my best friend. Probably the craziest thing we did was go down to Shikoku for a vacation, and we were stuck down in a gorge and the cable car wasn't going to get us in enough time to catch the bus (and it was the last one of the day, of course). We jumped onto the emergency stairs and ran all the way up (this was a very DEEP gorge, and it took us 20 minutes running all the way up). We could hear the people at the top saying "Ahh, mite mite ano gaijin da!" and "Hashire!" We still missed the bus, but we got a taxi, and the taxi driver was awesome. He went flying around these very steep roads with no guardrails, and even ran in and stopped the train from leaving for us XD That's still my favorite story.

I have had mayonnaise on pizza. A pizzeria near here does a BLT pizza that surprisingly is not terrible. It's my in-laws favorite pizza. The only odd thing was listening to my wife's cousin's husband brag about coming up with it. His pizzeria is doing fine in Ohio, but I am not sure about his 'we got bored at work' story.

optikeye: But on pizza..well...heck in Japan  that's nothing new, they put Kewpie mayo on lots of things.


Exactly. Someone is years behind the times if they think this is new news.

Pizza Inn does it on the ham and cheese pizza....

Its farking disgusting in my opinion, but I don't like enough mayonaise on my face to look like I've been doing gay porn after I'm done eating, so I'm definitely not a huge lots of mayo fan.

Went on vacation there long ago and tried that. I, too enjoyed it.
Never went back to ketchup since.

They call it The Italiano because it has the colors of the Italian flag. It's pretty popular in South America.

ColTomParker: Jimmy Raycraft and The Dishes used to sing about mayonnaise pizza back in the 80's. glad to see the prophecy has come to fruition.

Why Colonel Parker, mighty fine to see either a Houstonian from the day, or at least an Austin partier from the era chime in about Jimmy. Please note if you will remember...Jimmy DID always have that "just tasted Miracle Whip" look on his face while playing...and I don't want to BEGIN to tell'ya what they used to fix the broken keys on that Farfisa Organ she played...

Now off for a bit of listening to the Dishes this morning. (*mutter*...where's that new jar of Hellmans?)

I wonder how many haters are thinking that mayo on a pizza means taking their favorite tomato-basil-and-mozzarella New York/Neapolitan pizza and heaping globs of stiff, flavorless, white commercial American mayo on top. Or for that matter, how many have a one-note palate and can't abide variation at all. Either way, it's kind of senseless. And by that I also mean incapable or disregarding of the senses.

OK, so if something is done perfectly it doesn't need changing, that's true enough, but pizza isn't a singular dish, it's a broad culinary category, like "sauce", "sandwich", "pie", "dumpling" or "sushi" and therefore can't be defined by a singular recipe or flavor profile. Product advertising shorthand may allow it, but to say something is simply "pizza flavored" is really just stupid. Should there also be flavors called "sandwich", "ice cream" or "French food" that are universal?

Things evolve. Food is a thing. So is a palate. Fruit on a pizza was outrageous until "Hawaiian" style pizza broke through that wall. Pizza places that don't have pineapple as an option these days are few and usually only are that way because of a specific objection by the chef/owner, rather than lack of public demand. And where pineapple went, jalapeños, Alfredo sauce, barbecue and lots of others followed, so why not embrace more creativity as long as the basic need is met? Say you want to have a bit of heat on your pepperoni, ham and sausage pizza so you add jalapeños, but you want something sweeter than green peppers or raw onions and not as fruity and acidic as pineapple to cut the heat. Sweet corn works perfectly well for that. It works even better when there's seafood, cruciferous vegetables, chicken, egg, fresh tomato or avocado and hey: mayonnaise goes with those, too!

An open mind and an open palate are good things to accompany an open mouth, I say.

Just wanted to chime in about the headline and point out that, since they changed their ingredients, Domino's has some damned good pizzas. The Brooklyn style is awesome, and the new medium pan is absolutely DELICIOUS.

I lived there for a few years. The sauce known as mayo in the Netherlands isn't mayonnaise, it's a dipping sauce that includes mayonnaise as a main ingredient. And yes, it is freaking awesome. My favorite frites stand was down at Scheveningen.
