How many of you can say honesty that you hate pizza? It’s the perfect comfort food that you can just keep eating on rainy days and it’s also the quick filler that you can have on a day out at shopping. It’s a family favourite, a movie snack, a stress buster and in recent years, a dessert! Here are some of the craziest pizza inventions in the world that even made Google get googly-eyes!
24-carat gold leaf pizza
All glory goes to Chef Domenico Crolla who created this rather unique and extravagant pizza including 24-carat gold leaves in it. The pizza was made in honour of James Bond. The pizza was sold on eBay at a bid for a stunning 4200USD and was delivered to Maurizio Morelli, a lawyer in Rome. It also wins the tag for being the most expensive pizza in the world and apart from the gold leaf it also features lean venison cuts, white truffle shavings, caviar soaked in Dom perignon, lobster tails marinated in cognac, prosciutto, beef strips soaked in Henry VIII, tequila soaked chicken, Scottish smoked salmon, Italian mountain eggs and then some. It’s also a cocktail in the pizza don’t you think?
Crunchy Cicadas Pizza
Cicadas are insects that are very common in Missouri. They also, coincidentally make for a great dinnertime pizza that will be found served at some of the best American restaurants. The inclusion of Cicadas gives the pizza a crunchy texture and nutty undertone. The freshest insects for these pizzas are found at the bottom of trees, as they come out of the roots at dawn. They must be wet and pus yellow in colour if they are really fresh! Check this link http://www.tgifridays.com.au/find-us-marion/ to find out the best American restaurant near you.
Whole Shrimp Cheese Bite Pizza
This pizza has a very characteristic look. The ingredients are rather commonplace but the creation itself is quite crazy. This is how it is made. A whole shrimp is stuffed into a dough ball and mozzarella is put in there a well before it baked to a beautiful golden brown. There are 32 of these dough balls which is just the crust. The middle of the pizza is full of cheese and a range of other toppings. There have been some burger restaurants Melbourne Central that have tried serving pizzas of the same idea, but this original is found in Japan and Korea and remains the undisputed champion.
Pepper Kangaroo Pizza
The Pepper Kangaroo pizza will be served as thick or thin crust in Australia featuring generous chunks of Kangaroo meat with Australian peppers, cranberries and capsicums. The pizza is quite costly and is said to cost more than an airline ticket to Australia which is the only place that this can be found.
Squid Ink Pizza
This is a firm favourite with the Japanese who are also known for their crazy food ideas. The pizza can be ordered with the black ink replacing the tomato sauce that covers the dough or as a topping that can be drizzled on top. Everyone who tries this is encouraged to eat with hands and play around. It’s not just tasty, it’s also good fun!
