Pizza party planned? great idea. We are happy to give you inspiration for the tastiest pizza toppings. Because there is more than a pizza margherita (although there is nothing wrong with that of course…)
Vegan(n) pizza toppings
Tomato sauce, oregano and garlic
Do you have a good quality pizza base (tip: buy them at the Italian wholesaler in Amsterdam ) and homemade tomato sauce? Then you really don’t need much more for a great pizza. The secret really lies in the quality of the tomatoes.
Preferably buy a can of San Marzano’s and season the sauce with some garlic and oregano. They do that at good pizzerias such as Loes & Krikke (Antwerp) or nNea (Amsterdam). And don’t blame them!
Miso eggplant pizza (try it!)
Through Euro Pizza (from the guys from restaurant Europa in Zaandam) we discovered how horribly tasty and logical miso is on a pizza. So why not miso eggplant pizza?

For the carbs lovers: pizza with potato, kale pesto and pistachio
This pizza with potato, kale pesto and pistachio is unbelievably tasty. Potato on your pizza is a top invention of the Italians anyway. Especially for all carb lovers!

Delicious in the fall: pumpkin, burrata, balsamic onions and thyme
When pumpkins are in season, we like to cut them into thin slices to use as a pizza topping. So delicious with burrata, balsamic onions, pine nuts and thyme!

Pizza toppings with meat
Spicy salami and honey
One of our all time favorite combinations: spicy salami, chili pepper and sweet honey. That’s how they do it at Pizzeria Roberta in Brooklyn and that’s simply a very good idea.

Mortadella, ricotta and pistachio
A pizza bianca with fior di latte, ricotta, Mortadella and pistachio is a real Neapolitan classic. Make it yourself? Spread your bottom with ricotta, slide it straight into the oven and top with Mortadella, finely ground pistachios, fior di latte and basil. Madness, they call it.
Lamb, sumac onions and yogurt
Very tasty on a pizza is this Turkish-inspired combination of lamb, sumac onions and yogurt. We got inspiration for this pizza at Black Ax Mangal in London. There they serve a horribly tasty flatbread from their own wood oven with lamb and a delicious spice mix. But this combo is also perfect as a pizza topping.

Pizza toppings with fish
Cod, tomatoes and lemon
At nNea pizza we once ate a pizza with cod, piennolo tomatoes, fior di latte di Agerola, fried capers and lemon. How genius is that? And in fact not very difficult to imitate. Read here again how to fry capers . Not a fan of cod? Then replace it with anchovies.
Beetroot, mackerel and wasabi mayo
It was at pizzeria Buurman & Buurman that we discovered how great the combination of mackerel, beetroot and wasabi mayo really is. We liked it so much at the time that we decided to use the same pizza toppings for this quick flatbread with mackerel. Although you can of course also use the ingredients for what they were originally designed for: on a pizza.
