Must-Try Specialty Pizzas around the Philippines

You had me at pizza.

Pizza makes life better. It’s a proven fact. This comfort food is one of the world’s most favorite foods for good reason. And while we can’t get enough of classic flavors like cheese, pepperoni and mushrooms, you can find the most bizarre pizza toppings around the world–from squid ink to marshmallows.

Here are just a few of the more unusual but delicious toppings we’ve come across while traveling around the Philippines.

Mango Pizza from Guimaras

Despite long-standing debates on the merits of having pineapple on pizza, most Pinoy travelers would agree that mango on pizza is a sure win. The island province of Guimaras, just 15 minutes away from Iloilo City, is known for having delicious mangoes. One of the most sought-after dishes is the Mango Pizza from the homegrown Pitstop Restaurant. The delectable pizza is topped with 100% Guimaras Mangoes, cheese and cashew bits, resulting in a surprisingly good blend of tangy and salty flavors.
