Pizza Flavors You Will Find Only in Asia
Posted on May 21, 2012
Asians have one of the most delightfully diverse palates in the world. Naturally, they want their food to be both flavorful and tasty.
Thus, the flavors found in Asian pizzas can be considered unique.
Oozing with a variety of flavors and textures, it’s also safe to say that most of the pizzas from the Far East will be covered in shrimp. . .among other exotic toppings.
Read on to see which pizza flavors you could be tasting soon.
1. Shrimp and Mayo Crust Roll
When you visit Japan, remember to drop by a Pizza Hut to order the Shrimp and Mayo Crust Roll. The shrimp nuggets are injected with mayonnaise! Don’t even ask about the fat content, but be sure to visit the doctor and have your cholesterol level checked after eating a family-sized pizza.
2. Triple Cheese Pizza
While cheese is traditionally used on pizza, in South Korea they use three different cheeses on each pie. It goes like this: they put cheddar cheese on top of a thin crust, then add another layer of crust with Camembert on top, finished off with a final layer of crust topped with Emmental, AKA Swiss cheese.
After finishing this pie, be sure to take your heart medication. You will surely need it.
3. Shrimp Nude
And now for shrimp on our pizzas. South Korea’s Mr. Pizza uses shrimp and cream cheese to make this unique pizza flavor. For those in the U.S., you can check out Mr. Pizza in Los Angeles, too.
4. Grand Prix
Have you ever bitten into a pizza made not of bread but cookie dough? Step right in to Mr. Pizza and order the Grand Prix. Its toppings include sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and raisins.
Of course, they also throw shrimp and potato on top, and serve it with a blueberry dipping sauce! Honestly, would you be willing to try it?
5. The Crazy Crust Trio
These pizzas come from a restaurant called Strawberry Cones, which is located in Japan.
The pizza is a combination of three downright weird flavors. Imagine choosing between these: a Sausage Crust, Mochi Crust and Cheddar Crust Sauce!
And for your choice of toppings, you have a choice between the following:
1. 7-Veggie Variety: asparagus, corn, paprika, parsley, eggplant, zucchini, onions, and pizza sauce
2. Milakoreno: hamburger, bologna sausage, fresh tomatoes, broccoli, onions, mayo, parsley, and pizza sauce
3. 5-Cheese Variety: Camembert, Samsoe, Gouda, Steppen, Parmesan, along with fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, parsley, and pizza sauce
4. Fluffy Prince and ChikichikiTeri: Charcoal fire-grilled chicken, egg, parsley, mayo, and teriyaki sauce.
