I have a lot of food opinions and I also happen to love top 10 lists. More often than not I scoff at the choices on those lists but they are fun to read all the same. So I plan on doing a series of top 10 lists that are all about what *I* like. You likely won't agree with my choices as the definitive best in a category but since it's all about my taste, you don't have to.
The first food that came to mind was pizza. There were a bunch of different ways I could go with it but I narrowed it down to strictly toppings. I was going to do a top 10 best pizza toppings but didn't see as interesting as it will be with other topics. The top 10 worst was very hard to come up with because I like almost all foods. So I put up a few choices on Twitter and the Top 10 Favorite Unusual Toppings was the winner. So without further ado:
Joe Squared and had a really odd pie that had crushed tomato, oregano, meatballs, onion, roasted red peppers, parmigiano, romano, asiago, mozzarella, and….spaghetti. It’s a spaghetti and meatball pizza that comes in a square shape on a thin and crispy crust. When we saw it on the menu, being the carboholics that we are, we knew we had to check it out. The spaghetti got a little crispy but still had some nice chew to it. I was surprised that it didn’t burn and get really hard. In terms of flavor, it didn’t add much. I'd definitely want to try spaghetti or some other pasta on a pizza again, so much so that it deserves a spot on this list.
7. Fried Egg
6. Fried Chicken
Dogfish Head in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, during our honeymoon; sadly it’s no longer on the menu. Asparagus works like any other green vegetable on a pizza, it adds freshness but will also take center stage no matter what other ingredients are included. If kept somewhat crunchy, it will provide texture along with a buttery sweetness. When Asparagus isn’t in season, broccoli is my go to choice for a green vegetable on pizza or any other dish.
Sardo’s in Cicero, NY. They follow the toppings but start it off with a sour cream base instead of any sort of sauce. Potatoes offer both a crispy and creamy texture, if cooked properly beforehand, that is hard to beat. They also hold up incredibly well to prolonged heat in a pizza oven, unlike most of the rest of the ingredients on this list.
