10 Weirdest Pizzas in the U.S.
What flavor of ice cream would you put on pizza? Pizza, of course!
Pizza is so universally loved because it's adaptable to any personal tastes or dietary preferences. Don't like bread? It's ok to leave the crust on the plate. Don't eat meat? Load your pie with lots of veggies. And even if you can't stand to so much as look at a tomato, there are plenty of other sauces to choose from: alfredo, pesto, or something unexpected like hummus.
But it's because pizza is a blank canvas that it also lends itself to off-the-wall adaptations. That's what this list is all about. From the decadent (like caviar) to the eccentric (like bone-in frog legs), the toppings on these ten pizzas are unbelievable.
Frankford Avenue Taco from Pizza Brain
Can you believe there's a place on earth where you can order a slice of pizza pie a la mode? This Philadelphia pizzeria has a one-of-a-kind special that no other shop will dare replicate: a slice of cheese pizza topped with fresh basil and three small scoops of pizza-flavored ice cream, a mix of tomato, basil, and garlic, which is available year-round at Little Baby's Ice Cream.
Bone marrow, fontina, broccoli rabe & horseradish

Osso Pizza with Bone Marrow from flour + water
San Francisco is known for its back-to-roots food scene, and this pizza is a perfect representation of that philosophy. The Osso pizza starts with a chewy, yeasty crust; then it's topped with roasted bone marrow and a mix of other fresh ingredients like fontina, broccoli rabe, and grated horseradish. As expected, the special ingredient makes this an extremely rich pizza, and the slightly sweet, buttery marrow is a great complement for the lightly charred crust.
