Pizza is a versatile food with a myriad of topping possibilities. Unfortunately, too many people stay with one or two tried-and-true pizza toppings — like pepperoni and cheese — and never expand their palette. If you'd like to change up your pizza experience, consider adding some of the following toppings to your next pie.
What Pizza Toppings Can Add Interesting Flavor to Your Meal?
Not only is spinach a delicious topping, but it also offers fantastic health benefits. It's chock full of vitamins A, K, C, and B-complex, and is rich in iron, manganese, calcium, and copper. It's also a good source of fiber. As a pizza topping, it pairs well with feta cheese, garlic, and green or black olives.
2. Green Peppers
Green peppers have a fresh, slightly sweet taste and add a nice crunch to your pizza. They pair best with mushrooms, pepperoni, and onions. When sprinkled over red tomato sauce, their bright color adds some holiday flair to your dish.
3. Banana Peppers
Not as spicy as jalapenos, these pickled peppers nevertheless give your pizza a bit of heat. They are delicious with pepperoni and/or Italian sausage, but don't pair them with green olives or anchovies or the combination could make your mouth pucker.
Speaking of tiny fish, too many people reject anchovies as a topping before even trying them. They give the pizza a salty, tangy, and smoky overtone without too much "fishy" flavor. Anchovies complement onions and mushrooms wonderfully.
Pineapple gives your pizza a sweet flavor that brings out the sugar in the sauce. It pairs well with bacon, ham, and other salty pizza toppings and rounds out the overall tasting experience. If you've never tried it on a pizza, you'll be surprised at how delicious it can be.
