15 Unique & Fun Pizza Toppings For Your Perfect Pie!

If you are wondering what pizza toppings to put on your homemade pizza, you have come to the right place! We have gathered pizza topping ideas that you are going to enjoy. 

We all have favorite pizza toppings. 

Some people are pepperoni purists, while others seek out more unique offerings like pineapple, hot peppers, and carrots. 

The best part is experimenting with all these favorites and seeing what new, fun pizza topping ideas exist out there – and what has yet to be discovered.

With so many combination ideas and ingredients available, the options are endless for creating an ideal pizza from Chicken Brocolli toppings to Baked Potato Pizza toppings. 

Can’t think of any combos on your own? 

We’ve got you covered with a pizza topping list you can use to create your perfect pie or try a crazy flavor experiment (check out #12). 

If you’ve never ventured away from pepperoni or sausage before, some of these ideas might surprise you. 

But, when you view pizza as a “blank canvas,” it’s easy to let your creative side shine and put together a pie that makes your taste buds sing. 

With that in mind, let’s cover some different pizza toppings you can use to make your next homemade pizza night better than ever. 

Most people don’t think of pizza as breakfast food unless you eat a cold slice the morning after delivery. 

But, there’s no reason you can’t combine some of your favorite breakfast classics with a traditional pizza crust (or cauliflower crust, in this particular case) to make something delicious first thing in the morning.

The most notable topping additions for this breakfast pizza include sunny-side-up eggs and homemade spicy garlic honey.

It includes simple mozzarella, four eggs, and 20 basil leaves to add a little extra punch.

Spicy garlic honey might sound weird, but it makes a surprisingly fantastic combination when combined with the eggs and mozzarella cheese.

If anything, making these pizzas might give your family a genuine reason not to skip breakfast.

Many people prefer pineapple for a sweet topping, but have you ever considered trying soft butternut squash topped with even sweeter caramelized onions?

If you want cozy fall-themed toppings for pizza, butternut squash and onions are great ways to celebrate the season.

The onions are even roasted in apple cider for an extra autumn kick!

This is a perfect pizza for your kids when they come home from trick-or-treating or after a day of picking apples at your local orchard.

Our jaws dropped when we realized we could turn a classic dip recipe into a pizza topping.

It makes perfect sense – think of pizza dough as a giant crispy chip, and the topping ideas are endless.

Of course, spinach and artichoke dip is the king of all appetizers, so it only makes sense to start there. 

This recipe uses whipped cream cheese (or whipped goat cheese) and sour cream as a base instead of a traditional red sauce and adds little pizazz with onion powder and garlic powder.

You’ll feel like you’re scooping up a big bite of hot, bubbly spinach and artichoke dip with every slice. 

Another classic dish transformed into a pizza?

We see a pattern, and we’re not mad about it. 

However, this time, we are adding chicken to the mix for some extra flavor, protein, and familiarity.

This recipe is excellent for beginners, and you can adapt it to fit your needs.

Simply add your favorite marinara sauce to an unbaked pizza crust, and top it with cooked broccoli, cooked chicken, and shredded cheese.

You can customize it with different herbs and spices or even switch up the kind of cheese you use. 

It is a somewhat healthy choice if you need to get some extra vegetables and meat into your diet for the day.

At this point, we are pretty much taking classic recipes and combining them with pizza crusts into something rather unique.

You do not have to decide between tacos and pizza with this recipe.

You can have both!

Take a regular pizza crust and your favorite sauce and top it all off with lettuce, cheese, tomato, and tortilla chip bits.

You can also add sour cream to this pizza, but only once it’s cooled.

Okay, seriously, why did we not think to put beef, ketchup, mustard, and other cheeseburger toppings on a pizza sooner?

This cheeseburger pizza combines all of the classic flavors of a diner burger in one pie.

You can follow the recipe exactly or combine different sauces with different cheeses to truly emulate your favorite burger.

Let’s not forget that bacon is an excellent addition to this pizza, too, on top of all the yummy veggies to attempt to make the recipe healthier.

This one might seem a bit adventurous, but if you’re willing to try something different and somewhat elegant, give it a try! 

Roast beef and veggies are tossed with a delicious horseradish cream before making their way on top of the pie, so instead of a quick “grab and go” item, this pizza truly eats like a meal.

It will take a bit of extra work to roast and caramelize the veggies, but this pizza is a full culinary experience and well worth the time and effort. 

Dill lovers, rejoice! 

This Bacon Dill Pickle Pizza is a must-try! 

With the combination of fresh dill, dill pickles, and bacon; this pizza is a dill lover’s dream come true. 

Give it a try now to know why we’re stoked for these pizza toppings!

Why not make a veggie pizza based on the classic vegetarian pizzas found across Italy?

You will need plenty of vegetables, including tomatoes, bell peppers, red onion, zucchini, and no small amount of olive oil to truly add that Italian touch. 

One small tip is to roast the veggies for 20 minutes in olive oil, salt, and pepper before placing them on your pizza.

Doing so will soften them up and imbue them with flavor, making the final pizza all the more amazing.

It sounds strange at first, but when caramelized, apples and onions make an interesting sweet-savory combination that works with the creamy richness of a pizza.

All you need to do is roast the onions on your stovetop while the apples roast in the oven.

Adding a slight drizzle of honey over the finished pizza increases the sweet factor slightly, so you’ll be able to enjoy sweet, savory, salty, creamy, and crisp flavors and textures all at once.

We all have our favorite ways of consuming Thanksgiving leftovers, but seriously – adding sweet potatoes, cranberries, and turkey to a pizza is genius!

You can use this recipe as a base, but consider getting creative with some of your favorite leftovers.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to how you can layer them on, and it certainly beats the traditional “turkey sandwich” that most people have the day after the holiday. 

If it’s not Thanksgiving time, but you’re craving some of those flavors, this pizza is a perfect way to satisfy your craving without having to make an entire Thanksgiving meal.

These different pizza toppings may sound strange, but imagine spreading a pizza with strawberry jam, fresh strawberries, applewood smoked bacon, and a little chicken.

You can even make your own balsamic with our recipe here.

The combination is sweet, savory, light, and refreshing.

It’s a perfect summer pie if you’re hosting a small dinner party or want something different to feed your family.

Seafood does not typically feature on most popular pizza toppings lists, but calamari is a different story, especially since this recipe features the beer-battered variety.

Adding a little lemon zest, Greek yogurt, and hot sauce makes a fabulous medley of flavors that bring the calamari to life!

It’s another appetizer-turned-pizza that we think hits every note.

Adding sauteed apples and caramelized onions seems like an excellent way to spice up a pizza in the morning.

Adding a little protein with some scrambled eggs and thinly-sliced sausage.

Top it off with some fresh thyme, and it is time to start the day on a fun, yummy note.

Baked potato wedges add a savory, soft touch to any pie like the butternut squash pizza.

Garlic powder, sour cream, bacon strips, green onions, and a few types of cheese come together to make a pretty cool party pizza that’s perfect for a big game, a sleepover, or just a fun Friday night.

You can substitute ranch for sour cream for something a little healthier or zestier.

The bottom line

Pizza is a universally acclaimed food for a reason, and there’s no right or wrong way to do it (even if the Italians disagree).

There are dozens of ingredients and toppings you can combine to make your ideal pie, but the fun doesn’t stop with the types of pizza toppings we listed here. 

And what would we do with all that leftover pizza? Get our perfect reheat on, that’s what.
