The only topping for pizza is not to order.

Plantains maybe with a Jamaican sauce and pulled pork, but yellow bananas just sounds terrible based on texture alone.

Well In Alexandria Minnesota where i graduated from high school, there was or is a pizza joint called Giovanni's and at the time i lived there they offered Lutefisk as a pizza topping.

Now while the area has a large number of folks of Norwegian heritage I cannot say that any one i knew ever ordered it, i suspect it was almost never ordered and may have been there as a joke.

Edit: i just checked and they have since gone out of business, sad thing as they had good pizza much better than the national chains.

Especially if it was spicy mayo

Japan laughs at Sweden's "weird" toppings... they don't even began to scratch the surface of what truly awful things can be placed atop pizza.

Taiwan has decided that boba tea tapioca balls are a perfect pizza topping. Eat it with some boba tea and you have a boba fete.

"Ed Sheeran likes a traditional tomato sauce and cheese, topped with fries then rolled up and dipped in ketchup."

Ed Sheeran is a no-talent fark propped with auto-tune & tween marketing. If he was a wine he would taste like old pizza, fries, and ketchup.

Place I worked at in Phoenix did a foie gras pizza. We threw our own dough-heck our rolls were the same dough just not stretched-and it went into a wood fired oven. We're talking like a half lobe of foie gras per pie, seared with caramelized onions and a few other savories, it was recockulous. And the best part? People would modify it, driving the $75 starter price point sometimes to a $180 pie. 10".

I sometimes miss that gig. It was NOT the best. Chef Grosse was a ginormous asshat, and the stress between him working with his ex-wife who just got her Master Sommelier was often prickly, and there was some BOH drama, but I got to play with amazing fish, in the middle of the desert. Yes, Chef liked to tout that his poissonnier was from New England. I cannot oversell HOW amazing my fish was. My roomie worked for our fish distributor, a former Farkette no less, and she got us tuna that had been swimming only ten hours before delivery. The Ono was...It made me want to just drop everything to head to the Pacific Islands.  It was a cool gig, and it's one that immediately guarantees a call-back if I submit a resume, but...damnation it was like dating a really beautiful gal who treats you like sh*t.

Nigella's idea of a fried egg on leftover pizza doesn't sounds bad at all, but the actual pizza she put it on looks like burnt cardboard.

My mom would tell me to put fresh broccoli on pizza when I used to make them at home.

/ not good eats, eventually just put it on "her" part of the pizza.

I'm not the sort to order a $75 pizza, with or without foie gras.  But since I'm in Flagstaff I'm curious about which place this is.

Don't do it!

There's a microscopically small possibility you'll like it and it's generally hard to come by.

That's probably my biggest gripe with working in this industry. There's always the ONE thing that pushes you over the edge to make you not want to be there.

Pay is great, owners are awful and have no idea what they're doing
Pay is decent, owners are cool, foh and boh are a collective disaster, moreso than any other restaurant
Pay sucks but the food is amazing and the kitchen staff all knows their shiat and gets along pretty well with foh

Any combination of all that. I just want "good" across the board. I came real close to it at my current place, but then covid, then the old owner decided to sell the place to the most... Lots of banned adjectives here... People in the world.
