The Web's First Japanese Pizza Page - octopus with that squid ink sauce?

rworange | Mar 23, 2007 07:02 PM

Can't say if this is the first Japanese Pizza Page for sure, as the site claims, but it was the first time I saw pictures of Japanese Pizza.

That pizza with squid ink sauce is something.

"Ideal Taste of Sea Goodness and Mayonnaise!" ... Toppings: Shrimp, Squid, Tuna, Mayonnaise

"The Flavor of Seaweed and Shiso Makes it All the Better!" ... Toppings: Shredded Pork, Shimeji Mushrooms, Bamboo Shoots, Nori (seaweed), Shiso (perilla) Leaves

Curry Sauce, Potato, Fresh Mayonnaise, Canadian Bacon, Sweet Corn, Onion, Green Pepper, Black Pepper

But there are some good ideas, like using different mushrooms. The Japanese mushrooms look good. Or adding sesame seeds.

Here's the world's second Japanese pizza site ... aka Pizzas from the Dark Side

If you need to perk up the toppings for the next frozen pizza there are ideas here. Maybe add a few tater tots, camembert cheese, kimuchi, spaghetti, cod roe, dried fish flakes or eel.

Pizza hut sells an Idaho special - Potato chunks, sliced bacon, onion, corn, parsley, black olive, mayonnaise, double cheese.

Domino's sells a seafood special - Smoked salmon, green asparagus, shrimp, squid, green pepper, dried fish flakes, onion, extra-cheese.

Does anyone REALLY want squid from Domino's?

I guess corn is popular and sliced hard boiled eggs. One pizza is topped with three kinds of corn.

There are links to Japanese Pizzarias. Living in the SF Bay Area I was curious what Pizza California was serving up. All I can say ... Japanese people ... the site lies. I haven't seen anything like this in California.

Pizza-LA had an Enlish menu with questionable translations

New Funky - Very popular pizza among the child!! Because softly egg and Mayonnaise souce.

Ebi-Mayo - Shrimp fritter of rich taste, and delicacy full of special-make aurora sauce!!

Roast chicken with tartar sauce - Sizzling roast chicken and tangy fresh diced tomato. With fresh tartar sauce this will be hit with the kids!

One can only hope tartar sauce is a mis-traslation ... cuz all of that tops tomato sauce.
