Mochi pizza

Mochi pizza is a Japanese twist on the traditional pie. Instead of the customary dough, mochi cakes are used to form the crust. For those who do not know, mochi is a slightly sweet, short-grained rice pounded into cakes. Inspired by the margherita pizza, mochi pizza is topped with seaweed, ketchup, and tofu.

The best place to find this dish is at Strawberry Cones, a pizza chain in Japan famous for their mochi dough. If you can’t fly to Japan, learn how to make your own mochi pizza.

Korean-Style Pizza

Pizza is relatively new to South Korea, and it has taken the nation by storm! Aside from the American-influenced pizza, Koreans have their own special style of pizza. The crust is very thin (eggy crust is an option), and the range of toppings includes potatoes, shrimp, mushrooms, corn, bacon, kimchi, and honey, among others. When it comes to pizzas, South Korea wins most imaginative!

If you are ever in the country, try Mr. Pizza or Pizza Etang for quality Korean pies.
