I’m not as cool as Carla – I don’t make my own crust. But let me tell you, the Sharpes know how to top a pizza! Mostly. 🙂
When I told The Things we were having homemade pizzas for dinner, they thought it would be cool to have funky toppings. So, I thought, why not? The Husband said that as long as there was cheese pizza for him, he’d be happy. We had five crusts in all – two large and three small – and the boys could each top two. I gave Thing2 one of the larger crusts to make his meat pizza. The other large crust got cheese.
Thing 1’s first small pizza consisted of tomato sauce, cheese, pineapple, and apples. It was surprisingly good. Unexpected flavors that blended fairly well together. Would I want a pizza like this all the time? No. But it was a nice change from the norm.
I made his second pizza, but it was based on his idea of using shrimp. I mixed some cream cheese with dill, precooked the crust for a couple of minutes, then spread the cream cheese on, followed by the shrimp, then shook on some parmesan cheese, and finished cooking the crust. It was my favorite pizza of the night. His, too. Thing2 liked his meat pizza better, but this one came in a close second.
The meat pizza was exactly as it sounds. Meat, meat, and more meat. Ham, turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni, ROAST BEEF, and TURKEY BREAST. Hey, it worked.
But the dessert pizza. Oh, that poor dessert pizza. Grape jelly, topped with strawberries and bananas. We each tried it, and spit it out. Next time, I’d cook the crust first and maybe use strawberry jam instead of grape. Hmmmm. That actually sounds pretty good.
Okay, y’all – weirdest toppings on pizza, either homemade or from a restaurant. GO!
