Everyone loves pizza. There's just something about the marriage of gooey, stringy cheese with the endless possibilities of toppings.
Though the classics, such as pepperoni or just plain ol' cheese win over the hearts of many - pizza makers are becoming more and more creative with their own spin on what actually goes on top of a pizza!
I have been in Sinchon, South Korea for just over two weeks and have been craving some pizza *especially after I have been downing Korean BBQ and Tteukbokki every single day*..! I visited "Mr. Pizza," which is a chain, but the one I went to was located near Sinchon station, exit 2.
The menu at Mr. Pizza is pretty extensive. Between over 15 types of different pizza combinations, the option of the thickness of crust, and the decision to choose the stuffing in the crust - this place is magic as you can get whatever you want - prepared to your heart's content.
The pizza pictured above is the "Potato Gold Pizza" --- tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, mushroom, ground beef, corn, onion, potato wedge, bacon, nacho chip flakes, sour cream, all bundled up with a sweet potato mousse crust.
Can I just reiterate? This is the BEST pizza I EVER ate.
The cheese was oozing and the sweet potato crust gave each slice the perfect ending. The crust was just as chewy as pizza from the United States, which I prefer to thin crust. The combination might sound odd, but it tastes almost like a perfectly cooked baked potato!
On the other hand, I was not too fond of the side dishes. Coming from America, I wanted something spicy and sour, such as banana peppers or pickled jalepenos. What I got was quite the opposite... sweet pickles, almost as sweet as relish & sweet radish. Not my favorite pairing for a pizza.
