The Mega Slice Is One Of The Many Wild Items At This New Jersey Pizzeria

Take a trip to any one of the two locations of Joe’s Rotisseria and you’re transported to a pizzeria that tosses all pizza norms out the top floor window of the nearest high-rise and revels in the excess of its madcap creations. The Mega Slice above is one of many brash menu items from Joe’s and it features enough pepperoni to tame all the Ninja Turtles’ cravings all at once, while casually boasting a crust made up of garlic knots. Yup, Joe’s Rotisseria really is about that life.

But besides the eye-popping Mega Slice rocking garlic knots as a statement piece, Joe’s also features more concepts that are sure to drop jaws and break necks from the whiplash of a second glance. Here’s some of the showstoppers:

This chicken parm pizza has got an alfredo chicken cutlet calzone crust and I’m over here thinking it’s ready to punch me in the throat with its aggressiveness.

Joes’s Rotisseria serves up baton-sized mozarrella sticks called Thunder Sticks and has decided that stuffing one of them in a hefty cheesesteak sandwich with a ladleful of marinara was the chaos we needed today.

Joe’s takes pretzel crust literally here, and technically, they’re not wrong.

I don’t quite exactly know what’s going on right here, but I see a football-sized calzone that’s Frankenstein’d onto a moat of vodka sauce and burrata and I’m instantly compelled to confront the whole thing mouth-first.

Domino’s Japan Has A New 4-Flavor Pizza

Last week we reported on Domino’s Japan’s new Fish & Chips Pizza, showcasing their ability to deliver toppings that go beyond the norm for your typical pie. It seems they’re consistent in that innovative energy by introducing a new Quattro Nippon Pizza that features four different flavors all at once: Mentai Mayo Mocha, Hokkaido Three-Cheese, Charcoal-Grilled Teri-Chiki, Charcoal-Grilled Beef.

The out-the-box mentality that Domino’s Japan has when it comes to pizza toppings is something I definitely can get behind, ,and if I were in Japan right now, I’d drop the ¥1,300 JPY (approximately $12 USD) it takes to score me this new Quattro Nippon Pizza.

Domino’s Japan Is Selling a Fish & Chips Pizza

Pizzas offer the ultimate blank canvas for food creativity to run wild on. It literally gives the opportunity for anyone to channel their inner Bob Ross in the kitchen and let happy little accidents come to play while also serving as the catalyst for some off the wall creations.

As a result we’ve seen plenty of pizza toppings that have dropped jaws, earlier this week we even saw turkey testicles have a go at some pizza dough.

Domino’s Japan is offering a new pizza that’s not as controversial as that, but still is raising more than a few eyebrows: Fish & Chips Pizza.

According to Domino’s Japan’s site, the new Sakusaku Fish & Chips Pizza boasts crispy fish & chips, lemon, potato slices, basil, tartar sauce, and tomato sauce. It’s worth noting that its got whole lemon slices with rinds and all on top of this pie, so we really can focus on that being worse than pineapple as a topping.

Besides some lemon rinds being problematic, the rest of this concept does sound quite appetizing, especially given the fact that crispy fish and French fries in pizza form really does have high bussin potential.

The Sakusaku Fish & Chips Pizza starts at 3,000 yen (US$27) for a medium and goes up to 4,200 yen for a large.

What’s Round Table cooking up now these days?
