Banana Curry Pizza - Weird Pizzas
You’ll find this banana curry pizza in the regular pizza or classic section of a Sweden restaurant menu. Often compared to our ham and pineapple pizza, the curry powder is unique and extremely tasteful.

EbiMayo Mantai Pizza
For both Americans and Canadians, this pizza may sound ridiculous. Imagine this pizza, topped with shrimp, squid, corn, parsley, spicy cod cream sauce, and mayonnaise. As strange as it may sound to foreigners, this one is a traditional pizza in Japan.
Very hard to find in American cities, this delicacy is amongst favorites in Japan’s local Pizza Hut. Some toppings may blend well together, but can you get over the mayonnaise on your pizza? What about squid? Squid ink is generally combined with the tomato sauce to create a dramatic black sauce and add a slightly fishy taste.
Japan is a go-to destination for many travelers. Perhaps, this will be on your next bucket list!

Forget our delicious four-cheese pizza; let’s flip it around with a four fish pizza. In Russia, this delicacy is a capital favorite, with its name originating from its central city ‘’Moscow’’. This pizza topped with sardines, mackerel, sardine, tuna, and garnished with onions and served cold to strengthen its unique flavor.
Kangaroo Pizza - Weird Pizzas
Eating kangaroo seems cruel and completely unappealing for residents outside of Australia. We like to think of them as graceful creatures jumping instead of toppings on our pizza.
The Australian Hotel is a crowd favorite and serves classic Australian food with a twist. Marinated in native peppers and served with roasted capsicums and native berries, this sweet and sour flavor completes the saltiness of kangaroo meat. Sometimes garnished with feta cheese and beetroots, this classic is one to try while in Australia.
Other favorites are the saltwater crocodile pizza for a main competitor.
Green Peas Pizza - Weird Pizzas
Green vegetables on a pizza don’t sound that strange, does it? We often garnish our pizzas with green bells, spinach, and onions, and they add incredible flavor to a classic pastry.
Brazil brings it to a whole new level. This country doesn’t just like peas as a side dish, but instead, let’s make it the star topping on our pizza. This pizza is garnished with fresh basil, fresh oregano, zucchini, fresh tomatoes with mozzarella cheese, and well-cooked green peas.
