I just realized what's missing on this site - or at least I couldn't find it, and I hope it merits being its own topic: Japanese pizza!
Not that I know much of anything about Japanese pizza. Indeed, that's why I started this topic: to learn more about it. Perhaps some of this site's visitors have been to Japan and tasted it and can give us some info, perhaps even a dough recipe? Well, I guess I'll start off with a link to an English-language Japanese-pizza site, with pics:http://www.chachich.com/mdchachi/jpizza.html
As one can see from the photos and descriptions, the toppings, to say the least, are quite... uh... interesting. And here's another site...http://blog.greggman.com/blog/japanese_pizza
... with more pics and some interesting descriptions, such as:
- "Mix-J" - onions, green peppers, salami, bacon, corn and pizza sauce
- "German Taste" - bacon, potato, onion mayonnaise, pizza sauce
- "Curry German" - potato, bacon, tuna, onions, corn and curry sauce
- "Hot Dog Pizza" - cabbage, wieners, scrambled eggs and tomato ketchup
I'm curious to know how many other Pizzamaking denizens are curious about Japanese pizza - or am I the only one?
And finally, frankly, it's going to take me awhile to work up the courage actually to try to make - and taste - one of these things, so I'm hoping someone else will try it first!
Below are some photos of Japanese pizzas.
