Two words. Mustard pizza. Mustard. Pizza.
The most controversial pizza topping is no longer pineapple. At a pizzeria called Lions & Tigers & Squares in New York, there’s such a thing as mustard on pizza. Each Detroit-style pizza is topped with mustard instead of tomato sauce, corned beef, sauerkraut and half a pound of cheese. Yes, really.
How did this… umm… creative (?) pizza style come about? Mustard pizza comes from Trenton, New Jersey. A drunk man ordered a mushroom pizza at Papa’s Tomato Pie one night, and he was slurring his words so much that the cook thought he said “mustard pizza” instead of “mushroom pizza”. And thus, the mustard pizza was born.
Mustard, corned beef, sauerkraut and cheese sound like weird pizza toppings, but Lions & Tigers & Squares partner Francis Garcia says it actually works. Garcia explained that it’s like a cheese sandwich, only instead of bread you have pizza dough. It kind of makes sense… right?
Twitter, on the other hand, is not having it.
