Five unique pizzas you can order at Dominos in Korea

If you have been in Korea for awhile, many can attest to some quite bizarre pizza options than they are normally used to at home.

Pizzas with salad set in the middle of it, pizza with fruit and no cheese and even recently, a pizza with soap on it, has made the rounds in the kitchens of what would likely be an Italian chef’s worst dream.

That being said, though by no means the worst Korea has to offer, here are five bizarre pizzas you can order at Domino’s Pizza in Korea.

Octopus Bomb Shrimp

Toppings: Whole Shrimp, Octopus, Mushroom, Pepper, Red Onion, Parsley, Parmesan, Feta Cream, Mozzarella, Horseradish Sauce, Deep Cheese Sauce

Price:
Medium — 31,000 won
Large — 36,900 won

According to the Domino’s website, this pizza is inspired by American, Irish, and Kiwi tastes. Not quite sure where they came up with that, but if you’re really into seafood and octopus on your pizza, well, here you go.

Black Angus Steak

Toppings: Mozzarella, Feta, Ricotta Cheese, Roast Potato, Horseradish Sauce, Sundried Tomato, Arrabbiata Sauce, Angus Beef, Lobster Ball

Price:
Medium — 31,000 won
Large — 36,900 won

The Black Angus Steak is itself a little deceptive in title, as they fail to mention the “lobster ball” topping which makes this surf and turf pizza a nutritional nightmare. The six types of super seeds —  flaxseed, chickpea, oat, quinoa, hemp seed, and lentils — along with 100% Korean black rice which comprises the pizza dough, are not quite enough to make this sound like the healthiest option out there.

Wagyu & Bistecca

Toppings: Bistecca, Wagyu Crumble, Romano Cream Cheese, Provolone, Bocconcini, Parmesan, Mozzarella, Smoked King Oyster Mushroom, Arabiatar Sauce, Red Onion, Green Pepper, Roasted Potato

Price:
Medium — 30,000 won
Large — 35,900 won

Simplicity this is not, with 5 types of cheese and 13 ingredients in total. This mess of a pizza looks rough enough in its promo picture, and don’t imagine what it would come out looking like when coming out of the box for real. I don’t really even want to know.

Glamping Barbeque

Toppings: Whole Beef, Whole Pork, Special BBQ Sauce, Roast Potato, Mushroom, Bulgogi Sauce, Mozzarella, Romano Cream, Cheddar, Provolone Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, Parsley, Sundried Tomato

Price:
Medium — 30,000 won
Large — 35,900 won

Another 13 ingredient gut bomb, this one features a hodge-podge of meat, vegetables, cheeses, and sauces. The test chefs must have worked extra-hard on this one to really get your 30,000 won worths of toppings. Still trying to figure out where the glamping part of this pizza comes in.

Korean Sweet Potato

Toppings: Mozzarella, Ricotta Cheese, Camembert Cream Cheese, Wagyu Crumble, Pineapple, Corn, Red Onion, Mushroom, Truffle Cream, Parsley, Bacon, Sweet Potato Cube, Sweet Potato Mousse

Price:
Medium — 23,000 won
Large — 29,900 won

It wouldn’t be right to leave a classic sweet potato pizza on the list, and especially one with corn and pineapple on it. The kitchen-sink of Korean pizzas, meat, cheeses, vegetables, with locally grown sweet potatoes making “the best harmony” have always been a hard-pass on dinner night.

And there you have it. By far not the weirdest choices in Korea, but give me a simple pepperoni and cheese any day!
