When you think of pizza, you generally think of soft dough with sauce and cheese on it. Those who enjoy toppings may consider putting pepperoni, mushrooms or peppers on their pie. However, the possibilities for what to put on your pizza are endless if you want something a little more unique and exotic for dinner.


Pineapple is a delicious fruit that you can eat any time of the year. Whether you like fresh pineapple or the canned variety, you will enjoy the tart flavor and extra sweetness provided when it is added to your pizza. The best part is that you can grill pineapple without detracting from its taste.

Sausage and Broccoli

Want a unique combination of meat and vegetable on your pizza? Try adding your favorite sausage and combining it with the crunchy texture of broccoli. Grilled broccoli adds flavor and nutrition to your pizza while the sausage can add some spice and zing to what might otherwise be a bland meal.

Baked Ziti

If you like pasta, you will love putting baked ziti on your pizza. It is perfect for parents of children who are picky eaters. If you don’t like ziti, you can use rigatoni or elbows that will stick to the base of the pizza. Parmesan cheese can be added to the pasta to add a unique taste to a familiar food.


Eggplant can be cooked in a variety of ways to add a healthy and tasty element to your next pizza. Crafty parents can mask the flavor of the eggplant within the confines of the pizza in an effort to get their children to eat their vegetables. That makes it one of the best unusual pizza toppings with nutritional benefits. Eggplant is readily available in grocery stores and is easy to plant in your own garden.


Shrimp is a perfect addition to your pizza because it is easy to cook and is low on calories. Shrimp can be boiled or grilled to cater to whatever tastes you may have as a seafood lover. If you don’t like shrimp, other forms of seafood such as mussels or clams could be used too.

The next time you make a pizza, don’t stick to the typical plain cheese or pepperoni options. Instead, take the time to create something fun and different for yourself and your family. It can be just what you need to start eating better while also creating new meal ideas that you can use over and over again in the future.
