I have a 2stone pizza oven and have made many 100's of pizza with it, but now doing a private party and would like some different topping combo's.  Different sauces (not tomato) and cheese (mozzarella ) are a plus.  Will try anything once. Thanks Rodeo

A popular one at my parties is some of your favorite cheese topped with very thinly sliced potatoes and thinly sliced leeks, a few leaves of fresh sage, drizzled with evoo, generous salt & pepper.

Craig has a jalapeno sauce around here that gets great praise...

I've recently made a cashew pesto that was a pretty big hit with customers.  http://www.food.com/recipe/cashew-basil-pesto-377037

BBQ sauce as a base is actually pretty tasty as well.

If you decide to go an Asian spin route for pizza topping, there's a lot of sauces that play well with the right ingredients...

Hoisin Sauce
GochuJang (Korean hot sauce)
Sriracha
Instead of tomato as a base, a popular option is to go with olive oil (potentially flavored olive oil) and use mozz to create a white base

There's a few folks here that use bechamel as a base as well.

Hopefully that will provide some ideas?

I make this pizza often. I rost the chicken on the grill before I break it into pieces that will be cover by Stubbs BBQ sauce and cheese.

I've done a seafood pizza that's gotten some great reviews.  I start by peeling some shrimp and par cooking them very gently in a bit of olive oil, butter and Aleppo and s&p. Once about 1/2 way done, I remove the shrimp and chill them in the freezer, so they won't overcook on the pizza once in the oven.  I then add the shrimp shells and some minced shallots in the pan with the remaining oil/butter/seasoning, once again very gently--I don't want the shallots to gain color.  You can add garlic if you like.  After the shallots have sweated down and become translucent, I add some champagne and reduce it down to a glaze and then add some heavy cream and reduce it by half.  Adjust the seasoning, strain through a sieve and then use the champagne cream sauce for your pizza.  Top with cheese of your choice--very sparingly and then add the chilled shrimp.  About half way through baking I add some crab meat.  Post oven a sprinkle of parsley and a drizzle of lemon or some lemon dressed arugula. 

Another one that got some great reviews--The English Beast.  Very rare roast beef that was simply seasoned with garlic, thyme and s&p.  Garlic olive oil on the base, a mixture of fresh mozzarella and sharp cheddar and the roast beef.  Topped post oven with arugula and horseradish crème fraiche.  Yes I love arugula.

The Havana.  Basil/mint lime pesto, mojito marinated chicken, fresh mozzarella, tomato slices and diced jalapeno.

The Diner--garlic olive oil, fresh mozzarella and a bit of cheddar topped with a whole egg near the end and then topped with bacon jam post oven.

There's a few for you.  Let me think and I'll come up with some more odd ball, but really great specials I've done in the past.

Veto's Pizza has a few great looking toppings. Particularly the Pesto Pizza.

Hoisin sauce instead of tomato
DOP Buffalo Mozz
Crispy fried duck ( a little undercooked so the pizza oven just finishes it off)
Scallions
Arugula
EVOO
Shaved parmesan
Aleppo chilli


All in moderation of course....
