pizza…with peas?

Pizza is pretty popular over here with Pizza Hut and Domino’s making large headways, though other, smaller companies have their own twist on it. It doesn’t tend to have a lot of sauce on it and peas are basically a staple on pizzas. Why? Who knows? Corn also sometimes makes an appearance.

As for base ingredients, there are the North American staples – pepperoni, ham and pineapple, supreme – but there are a lot more gourmet flavours here. Or, depending how you look at it, experimental and/or flavours reliant on local providers. There are a lot of seafood pizzas – I once had a delicious wasabi octopus pizza at a Taiwanese pizza joint – and many that have mayo on the top. They really love that stuff here on things other than sandwiches. Lots of other meats as well – smoked chicken, grilled pork, popcorn chicken, seafood of all kinds, pieces of beef (not hamburger).

It’s interesting to see my culture re-interpreted and sold here. I guess this is how Chinese people feel when they go to a Chinese restaurant in North America.
