Pizza is one of the most popular foods in the United States, but sometimes even the most dedicated connoisseurs can get a little bored of the typical choices. While a cheesy pizza covered in pepperoni and red sauce probably sounds good to most people, there's no harm in getting a little more adventurous with your pizza either. Here are three flavors to try the next time you're in a mood for a unique pizza.
Truffle oil is simply olive oil that's infused with truffles. Truffles are known for their potent, mushroomy flavor, and this flavor lends itself well to olive oil. While putting slices of real truffles onto a pizza would be outlandishly expensive, you can instead ask for truffle oil, which provides the flavor at a fraction of the cost.
Since most pizza is made with olive oil, integrating truffle oil doesn't cause a pizza to become overly oily. Your cook can swap out some or all of the olive oil for truffle oil, which will infuse the entire pizza with a delicate mushroom taste.
Pizza fans tend to have mixed feelings about vegetables on pizza. However, if you've never tried bitter greens on top of a pizza, you're missing out on a complex flavor that can really liven up a pie.
A pizza only needs a small smattering of bitter greens on it to provide a lot of flavor. For example, the bitter green arugula is described as slightly bitter, but with a peppery bite that livens up surrounding flavors. Bitter greens can also help to break up the oiliness and denseness of multiple cheeses and toppings laid on top of each other, which helps to make each bite taste as good as the first.
If you like your pizzas to have pepperoni or salami on them, you should give prosciutto a try. Like pepperoni and salami, prosciutto is dry-cured ham that's sliced thin and put on top of the pizza. Unlike pepperoni and salami, prosciutto has a smooth, delicate bite to it, reminiscent of smoked salmon. It's packed with pork flavor goodness, so even a few strips on top of a pizza can elevate a pie to the next level taste-wise.
Part of the joy of pizza is that you can get nearly anything you want on it. If you're tired of sticking to the traditional classics, expand your tastes a bit and go for a new ingredient or two on your next pizza. Your taste buds will thank you for it, and you might just discover a new favorite. For more information, contact your local pizza delivery service.Share
