Candy-Covered Pizzas

Chocolate Pizza Toppings Cook Up the Ultimate Meal for Sweet Tooth Eaters

— February 18, 2015 — Unique
Many agree that sweet, salty and fatty are flavors that work mouthwateringly well together, but what do you think about the idea of chocolate pizza toppings? What you're looking at is the invention of Japan's Aoki’s Pizza chain, which decided to put broken bits of crunchy chocolate bars on special promotional pies.

Pizza Black Thunder is named after the candy bar that makes it unique. Each piece of the treat is packed with cookie crumbs, so the unusual ingredient could hardly be more dessert-y. Now what goes with chocolate pizza toppings? Well, the creators have packed on generous slices of cheese and chunks of pineapple too. For those who really love this eccentric combination, the company initiated a Twitter campaign for customers, offering a prize of 320 Black Thunder bars over the course of one year. All I can say is that none of this should be eaten alone.
