Pizza is the dish that brings out the joy in all of us. Whether it is one loaded with cheese or filled with delicious spices, a good pizza can light up anyone’s day.

While some choices of flavors and toppings are instant favorites, others aren’t that good. Still, that doesn’t stop people from experimenting with flavors and spices on their pizzas, and while most of them end up in the trash, there are some that end up becoming favorites among the masses. If you’re looking for something different in San Mateo or Palo Alto, our pizza places in Silicon Valley have the perfect combination of unique toppings to mix things up with many of our specialty pizzas. Our fresh and delicious New York-style pizzas are unmatched throughout California, and we’re excited to get you on board the flavor train!

There are many such combinations that people have tried over the years, and some concoctions made the cut. Some of the most popular pizza styles ones are:

1. Tikka Masala

This is a recipe made for chicken pizzas in particular, and an oozing mozzarella base loaded with unique spices to the top will be like a fireball right in your mouth. Stock up on jalapenos, garlic, and ginger to create a potent combination. It can be vegetarian, too, but keep in mind that you will need more spices to mix it up!

2. Fruit Pizzas

Who said pizzas cannot be sweet? While a chocolate pizza doesn’t always do the job, a fruit pizza is not only a great idea for a dessert, but also contains loads of nutrition and very little carbs. Even eating a King Kong pizza from New York Pizza won’t add many calories with this one, but the correct combination of fruits will make it a taste to relish. The most tried combination is fruit jam with strawberries and apples — yum!

3. The Crunchy Pizza

Thin-crust pizzas are delicious and crunchy, and their flavor and crunch can be very easily increased by adding chips. While adding chips before putting the pizza into the oven would make them soggy, adding them as a garnish to the pizza will increase the crunchiness, and would also add more spices to the mix.

4. Choco-Raspberry

Chocolate alone doesn’t always do the job. However, a berry over a chocolate-loaded pizza is one of the best things to have ever happened to a pizza. Chocolate and berries counterbalance each other very well, balancing the sour taste with the sweetness. It also doesn’t require much preparation and very little cheese, making it a good way to cut down on fat.

5. Garlic Cheese Pizzas

We love pizzas. We love garlic bread. What more is needed? Garlic adds a great taste to any pizza, and a cheese-loaded pizza with garlic flavoring will blow your mind. Corn and spices also go well with garlic, so that you also get a variety on the plate before reaches your taste buds.

Variety is the spice of life, and here at New York Pizza, we believe in mixing things up every now and again.
