He calls it “refined,” adding that, “I’ve been making pizza for more than 20 years, and I know that London is a city always looking for something new. Pizza is something you can experiment with. I might try one with snails on it next.” Now, frogs’ leg pizza may be a bit outré. But in the world of strange pizza toppings, it barely registers. In Japan, epicenter of odd pizzas, the list of curious ingredients is extensive — a quick web search … [Read more...] about Best pizza in Long Beach: 8 great places for winning pies
