Page 3 of 3

Luxury Caviar & Lobster from Nino's Bellissima

This pizza, called The Luxury, might be the weirdest pizza money can buy - but it will cost you a lot of it. The thin-crust pie goes beyond gourmet with a price tag of $1000. It's topped with not one but SIX types of caviar -- that's where a majority of the money goes. Then to offset all that salty roe, the pricey pizza is finished with tender, buttery Maine lobster tail.

The Everglades from Evan's Neighborhood Pizza

Located in Fort Myers, Florida, it's not too surprising to find fresh alligator on the regular menu. But from time to time, the family-owned pizza shop also serves the appropriately named The Everglades, which his topped with a trio of local exotic meats. It features not just alligator meat but frog and python too. Heads up, though, that if you find this special, a 14-inch pie will run you $45 because of the cost of python.

Spam Pizza from Brick Oven Pizza

It's not surprising that people would have made this in the comfort (and privacy) of their own kitchens, where they won't be ridiculed for topping a pizza with, of the countless options available, canned meat. But can you believe a pizzeria serves it - and not even in Hawaii, where Spam burgers are practically a delicacy? Baltimore's BOP has over 50 toppings to choose from, including the classic canned ham.

Crab Rangoon from Fong's Pizza

Though ravioli was a strange topping? This bizarre pizza takes the idea in a global direction with a totally different kind of dumpling -- in Des Moines, Iowa, of all places. Crab Rangoon are deconstructed on this inventive pie, which starts with crab, surimi, and green onion. There are two types of cheese: mozzarella and salty, asiago. Garnishes of crispy egg roll strips and sweet chilli sauce complete the creation.
