Now, let’s take a look at some weird, wacky, and wonderful pizza toppings to try this summer!

Pizza Topping #1: Cold Fish

If you’re a fish lover, you definitely have to make a point to try cold fish on your next pizza. Many Americans are fond of adding beer-battered tilapia to their pizza, along with garlic and lemon. For a more spicy pie, you can always toss the tilapia in cajun spices and hot sauce. A popular pizza in Russia known as the “mockba” contains sardines, tuna, salmon, mackerel, and onions, and it is traditionally served cold (which may sound bizarre, but it’s tasty!).

Pizza Topping #2: Pineapple

Pineapple is a very controversial pizza topping among Americans. The sweet and tangy fruit has caused stir up in the pizza world, but there are many reasons why people love adding this topping to their pie.

Pineapple is sweet – If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love adding pineapple to your next pizza. It’s a savory ingredient that can turn an ordinary pizza from drab to fab, not to mention it’s healthy!
It is moist – Compared to other pizza toppings, pineapple contains a significant amount of moisture, which can be very desirable among pizza-lovers.

Pizza Topping #3: Bananas

Bananas are another interesting pizza topping to consider for your next pizza delivery. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are both a fruit and not a fruit. While the banana plant is called a banana tree, it is actually an herb that is distantly related to ginger. Adding banana to your next pizza will add a sweet flavor to your pie, and can pair well with toppings like pepperoni, banana peppers, and olives.

As you can see, there are many fun pizza toppings to try out this summer the next time you order pizza delivery or dine-in at a pizzeria.
