Create an Exceptional Pizza

Who can say they’ve never been in the mood for pizza? Pizza is a massive concept to the food service world due to the sheer amount of possibilities. A large variety of ingredients allows everyone to build a meal to their taste, and who could say no to that? Here’s a few ideas on how to top an exceptional pizza. Though many people pile it high, the most consistent topping for pizza is pepperoni. Approximately 251,770,000 pounds of pepperoni are consumed every year! That’s a lot of meat.

If you travel around the world you’ll find some toppings that may sound strange, but are just as common to others as pepperoni is to us. In India you could find pickled ginger, minced mutton and tofu.  Squid and Mayo Jaga (mayonnaise, potato and bacon) are popular in Japan. Brazilians like to add green peas. Russia tops their pie covered with mockba, which is a combination of sardines, tuna, mackerel, salmon and onions. A common combo in France is called the Flambée, with bacon, onion and fresh cream. In Pakistan, curry is a big seller. Australians enjoy shrimp and pineapple on their pies as well as barbecue toppings, while Costa Ricans favor coconut.

It is very apparent that around the world, toppings vary greatly to reflect regional preferences. Whether you want a good ol’ American classic or you feel adventurous and decide to go for something a little more foreign, try some of the following dough items to start a delicious pie.
