Trying to figure out the 15 strangest pizza toppings is a little confusing at times. But hey, to each their own when it comes to pizza.

Ketchup and Mustard


Is it a rolled-out hot dog or a pizza? Some people claim that there’s a delicious tang added to the ‘za, but I don’t know…

Baked Beans


This was something sold in the 90s, seriously. It almost feels like it could be decent, but it’s tough to get around the mental block about beans on pizza.



Other vegetables have indeed been added to pizza. Even stating that peas are too mushy isn’t much of an excuse since most crisp vegetables are soft when they come out.

Cold Fish


This sounds like it’s popular in Russia, but the mockba might get mocked in the USA. Sardines and mackerel, cold, on a pizza just don’t sound right.

Macaroni and Cheese


It’s an odd pairing to put it lightly, but it’s not so over the top that it can’t be feasible. In a way, this strange topping might make a good calzone.



Hey, believe it or not, I’ve had smoked oysters on a pizza, so this isn’t one of the strangest toppings overall. But it’s still kind of odd unless you’ve ever eaten at the California Pizza Company.

Mashed Potatoes


Yeah, it does sound a little…different. But in the history of the strangest pizza toppings, it’s not that bad.



This definitely feels like a dessert more than a dinner. But somehow, people like this and will continue to eat it after the first slice.

Carmelized Onions, Apples


Fruit on a pizza is nothing new. But apples? Yeah, that gets the vote for one of the strangest pizza toppings.

Strawberry Balsamic Pizza with Chicken


Someone was having a laugh with this one, or at least that’s what a lot of people would think. A lot of individuals might be brave enough to try it just once.

Crocodile, Emu, and Kangaroo


Someone went to Australia and wondered “What can I put on a pizza?”, and this is the result. Hey, if your guts are that tough, fair play to you.

Peanuts, Bananas, Chicken, Pineapple, Curry Powder


Some people would draw the line at the pineapple, assuming that they didn’t balk at peanuts and bananas. It sounds like people in Sweden love this dish.

Smoked Reindeer


Okay, this doesn’t sound too bad. But honestly, it also sounds like something that might, outside of Finland, become a huge issue.

Burgers, Fries, and Chicken Nuggets


Why not combine your favorites, right? What’s next, steak and baked potato pizza?

Squid Ink


At least ink is edible when it comes from squid, right? If it’s served anytime other than Halloween though, yikes.
