A Half Kangaroo, Half Emu Pizza Is A Unique and Delicious Reality In Australia

I’ve tried many flavors of pizza in my life, even ones with toppings from all over the world. Because pizza is such a vesatile medium for countries and cultures to put their flavors onto a slice, I don’t think there will ever be a day where we try every pizza this planet to offer… and that’s a wonderful thing.

Take this half emu, half kangaroo pizza for example.

Called the Coat of Arms Pizza, the pie is a 50/50 tribute to the two iconic animals of Australia and can be found at the Austrian Heritage Hotel in Sydney.

One half is topped with kangaroo steak and capsicum peppers. The other half is topped with marinated emu meat and juicy whole bush tomatoes. Once out of the oven, the Coat of Arms Pizza is finished with a drizzle of lemon myrtle mayo, a native ingredient to Australia.

Together, the two meats form one formidable pizza pie that attracts both tourists and locals alike.

Reuben Mourad, our Foodbeast correspondent on the other side of the world, says the pie packs the flavor of the lean meats while being able to stay juicy throughout.

Pizza aficionados, you may want to put this on your bucket list.
