Nippon no Piza

(Language note: the title means 'Japanese pizza'.)

Last night was payday, and as we were hungry and had no food in the house but lots of money, my roomate and I decided to go out for some food. One of the items on the menu was pizza.

Now, I haven't had a lot of pizza in Japan. This is largely because, in contrast to the vast majority of delicious Japanese food, it often isn't very good. There are a number of reasons for this: the Japanese prefer their pizzas with extremely thin crusts, occasionally verging on tortilla-esque crispiness; also, one of the more popular toppings is corn.

Yes, that's right. Corn. On pizza.

The pizza above, however, was possibly one of the best pizzas I've ever tasted, possibly because I've never had a pizza like it before. The toppings were as follows:

-Teriyaki chicken
-green onions

Sounds a little gross, maybe? (especially the mayonaise part?) Not so. That was one damn fine piza.

They don't have a Pizza Hut there?

Mmm ... Pizza Hut. They do, but I haven't seen too many. As an interesting sidenote, Pizza Hut in Japanese translates as 'Piza Futo', which leaves most of them really concerned (they know just enough Engrish to go, 'Huh? Pizza Foot? What's that supposed to mean?)
