As a kid, I loved watching the '90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons. Who didn't? One of the things that stuck was all the ridiculous pizzas Michelangelo and his brothers would order throughout the series. As the years passed, I started to think some of those pizzas could actually be pretty delicious if done right. Though it did take a solid 22 years for anchovies to grow on me.

Like his Renaissance namesake, who would have thought Mikey was ahead of his time. Using some hunger-fueled imagination Foodbeast recreated 24 of the most disgusting pizza orders from the TV show and turned them into something you could order at a restaurant. Cowabunga.

__________

Tuna fish, peanut butter and grape jelly

Tuna ahi poke on top of a bed of seaweed salad and drizzled some hot, melted peanut butter and grape jelly on top. Went more for color than taste. Ending up tasting great so that worked itself out.

__________

Drenched the pizza in a cajun peanut butter sauce with four fresh calms. The heat from the sauce really made the clams, no pun intended, pop. Crawfish for garnish.

__________

Peanut butter, avocado and extra pickles

A bed of guacamole topped with avocado slices, melted peanut butter and some sweet dill pickle chips. This is actually a sandwich I make on many an occasion.

__________

Pepperoni and cheese pizza topped with roasted marshmallows. The marshmallows look like haunting little lifeboats on a sea of pepperoni.

__________

Marshmallow and asparagus

Asparagus and cheese baked directly into the crust and topped with toasted mini marshmallows. Had to many different versions of this one before I settled on this. Couldn't be happier.

__________

Guacamole and Marshmallow


IMG_8663

A generous heap of freshly made guacamole and topped with a single marshmallow lit on fire. Kids, don't try this at home. Grownups, go nuts.

__________

Butterscotch, onions and anchovies


IMG_8479

Onion and anchovies caramelized in brown sugar and a butterscotch sauce. Tasted great but stunk up my kitchen like nobody's business. Do turtles have nostrils?

__________

Tea and toast


IMG_8866

A buttered slice of toast on top of tomato sauce and sprinkled with tea leaves, parmesan cheese and more tomato sauce. The original concept for this had chunks of toast drenched in tea. NOT. APPETIZING.

__________

A cheese pizza made with a hearty clam sauce and chocolate sprinkles and garnished with green onions. Not easy to make clam sauce pop on a pizza. Had to tweak it into a chowder. Master Splinter would be proud.

__________

Chocolate chips baked into the pizza and drenched with a generous amount of hot fudge. It's essentially a cookie.

__________

Chocolate fudge with extra garlic


IMG_8617

A generous amount of fried garlic on top of a pool of melted chocolate fudge. Definitely not something you'd order on a first date, but then again, are any of these pizzas?

__________

Chocolate fudge, sardine, chili pepper, whipped cream


IMG_8825

A cheese and whipped cream pizza topped with shaved chocolate fudge and red chili flakes. Served with a fried sardine filet in chocolate fudge sauce. Any nutrients that piece of sardine contains is neutralized by that mountain of whipped cream. I guarantee it.

__________

Anchovies and hot fudge


IMG_8548

Hot chocolate fudge drizzled over anchovy filets on a sauceless white pizza. Until the day anchovies turn into giant mutated fish that eat people, they'll forever be my favorite fish.

__________

Pepperoni and hot fudge


IMG_8219

A classic pepperoni and cheese pizza drizzled with a little chocolate fudge. Just a little. We're not animals.

___________

Cheese and pepperoni pizza with sweet dill pickle chips. The pickles add a crunch that can be heard all through the New York sewer systems.
