Pizza. It began humbly, as the flatbread in the fire of an ancient, Middle Eastern chef. From there it travelled to Europe, where Naples, Italy, made it the gastronomical star it is today. Now pizza is enjoyed in countries the world over. In South Korea you can find pizza garnished with corn kernels. In Laos, it may be topped with grated carrot. If you’re looking to branch out from your same old pepperoni slice, consider some of these international toppings:
- Squid or eel (Japan)
- Coconut (Costa Rica)
- Fish and chips (Indonesia)
- Ginger or goat (India)
- Banana curry with smoked ham (Sweden)
- Caviar (New York)
- Fried egg (France)
- Canned tuna (Germany)
- Mashed potato (Brazil)
