Now, weird pizza toppings are nothing new to me--in high school-- during my before vegan days ( 1997 b.v.)I would get those little frozen pizzas and slather then in ranch dressing and sprinkle m&ms across the top (I feel ill just thinking about that).
Nowadays I like to put broccoli and slivered almonds on my pizza or any veggie that happens to be lurking in my refrigerator. So, last night as I was making pizza I saw a lonely looking banana sitting on the counter. "Why not? Why not? What is the worse that could happen," I reasoned with myself.
So I cut up the banana and put it across the top of the pizza and popped the whole business in the oven. I texted Andy while waiting for the pizza to bake. He asked for a full-report with photos (hence this blog). After a tense (added for dramatic effect) baking period I decided that it was time...
I removed it from the oven, it looked innocent enough...
Well, I took a bite after Cordelia, she was my test subject and she seemed to react positively. Naturally I waited to make sure that everything stayed down.
Eric's reaction was so extreme that he begged not to be photographed (either that or he'd just gotten a haircut and was not happy with the professional styling---we may never know).
Either way it was cool to mix it up. I hate that as adults we get set in our ways, why not put banana on pizza? So today I invite you to mix it up a bit! If you've already done so or if you have any mix it up ideas, please share them!
