At Hungry Howie's® we love all things pizza, including weird pizza toppings. The different cheeses, all different crusts, and of course, all the different toppings are what makes each pie so delicious.

If you find a weird pizza topping you like, go for it. If it's your new favorite, we think that's awesome.
