Although 93 percent of Americans have at least one pizza slice every month,
the United States isn"t the only country with a love of pizza.Over 5 billion
pizzas are sold worldwide each year, and over 350 slices of pizza are eaten
every second.
No wonder bedspreads devoted to pepperoni and portable pizza
pouches for hanging a cheesy slice around your neck (they"re only $8, people)
exist.Although the U.S.
is quite passionate about pizza, our toppings are
pretty tame compared with the rest of the world.
Cheese, pepperoni, and
sausage aren"t too out of the ordinary when compared with such choices as
smoked reindeer and haggis.
Read on to discover 14 of the weirdest pizza
toppings around the world — then mark them on your bucket list to
try.Banana Curry Pizza (Sweden) Photo Modified: Flickr / Sebastian Bassi /

You"ll find banana curry pizza under the "Ordinary" or "Classic"
sections of the menu in Sweden.
It"s not too different from a Hawaiian in that
it pairs ham with a sweet fruit, but the curry powder is admittedly
unique.
Most pizza places in Stockholm will serve it, but people flock to
sample it at Formaggio Pizzeria.Related: TripAdvisor: Best Pizza Parlors in

Bronx Pastrami Pie (United States)

Why didn"t anybody think of this in New York? Rose
City Pizza in Rosemead, Calif., simply swaps rye bread for pizza dough and
adds mozzarella to the classic pie.Canned Tuna (Germany) Photo Modified:

In Germany, canned tuna is a popular
pizza topping, and it"s often mixed with onions, olives, or other
vegetables.Coconut (Costa Rica) Photo Modified: Flickr / Alexandra Richmond

Coconut is often employed as a topping for sweets and desserts
in the United States, but in Costa Rica, it"s a favorite pizza topping
– along with shrimp.
Cone Crust Pizza (United Arab Emirates) Photo:
Pizza Hut
This interesting-looking pizza has a crust that you can easily
pluck — perhaps too easily.
Each "cone" of the Cone Crust Pizza comes
stuffed with honey mustard chicken or cream cheese.
Since it seems like Pizza
Hut Middle East has (thankfully) discontinued this item, you might as well
visit the critically acclaimed Rossovivo in Dubai instead.

This is not too far a stretch from the meat lovers slice we have in
the United States, but add black pudding (blood sausage), mushrooms, and baked
beans to the regular sausage and bacon.
While the deceptively titled American
Pizza is a late night favorite in Liverpool, make no mistake – this
place is as British as the Beatles.
Grand Prix Cookie Crust Pizza (South
Korea)South Korean chain Mr.
Pizza has quite the array of unusual pizza
toppings, but the Grand Prix Cookie Crust tops them all (no pun
intended).
This shrimp and sweet potato pizza comes with a cookie
dough-stuffed crust and blueberry dipping sauce on the side.

peas are a very popular vegetable in Brazil, and they often appear on pizzas,
along with raisins, carrots, and quail eggs.
Haggis Pizza (United Kingdom)

Yard Sale Pizza in London serves perfectly
normal and delicious fior-di-latte pizzas, except for on Burns Night.
That"s
when they join forces with Deeney"s and bring out the haggis and add cavolo
nero, black chile jam, and mozzarella to keep it company.
If you"re not in
London during Burns Night, fear not: Frozen varieties are available at most
British supermarkets.
Kangaroo Pizza (Australia)

The Australian Heritage
Hotel in Sydney offers pizzas named Pepper Kangaroo, BBQ Emu, and Saltwater
Crocodile.
Apparently, kangaroo tastes like a cross between buffalo meat and
venison.
Mayo Jaga (Japan)

This popular type of Japanese pizza is topped
with potatoes and hot mayonnaise.
At Domino"s in Japan, mayo jaga is decorated
with mayonnaise in a pretty lattice design, so don"t knock it till you try
it.
Mockba Pizza (Russia) Courtesy: Correa"s

Forget quattro
formaggi.
The Mockba Pizza is a four-fish pizza, with sardines, tuna,
mackerel, and salmon, garnished with onions and herbs (and roe, sometimes)
— and it"s served cold.
This pizza is named after the capital —
"Mockba" is the Russian word for Moscow — so head over to Correa"s, a
Muscovite favorite.Pizza Berlusconi (Finland) Photo Modified: Flickr / Lauri
Rantala / CC BY 4.0

Named after the Italian leader who grumbled that he had
to "endure" the Finnish delicacy of smoked reindeer, Pizza Berlusconi is made
with smoked reindeer, chanterelles, and onions.
The Finnish chain Kotipizza
does it best, and it has branches as far afield as Suzhou, China.Pizza Corner

Before
Domino"s and Pizza Hut landed in India, Pizza Corner ruled the market.
While
it"s still running, though feebly, the pizza toppings under the "Indian"
section of its menu are outrageous: chicken chettinad, jugalbandi (paneer),
kohlapuri, chicken tikka, and a combination of all of these.More from The
