Cleaning up around the house today, I came across the menu for a pizza chain. I thought I'd share some of the entries, which are quite typical of pizza in Japan.
They have three “series” of pizza: the Italiana Series boasts “cheese stacked to the top of your ears,” the Quarter Series has pizzas with four different combination of toppings (one combo per quarter pizza), and the Long Seller Series are the traditional standbys.
In this post, I'll feature one from each series...
The first pizza in the Italiana Series has four combos like a Quarter-Series pizza, and hence is called the Quarter Italiana.

I have no idea why this Quarter Series pizza is called “New Bomber”, but here it is:
New Bomber contains:
It comes with your choice of curry sauce or mayonnaise sauce
This Long-Seller pizza's name means “scallion mochi”. Mochi is a sticky, chewy rice product sort of like a cross between gum and cookie dough, but tastes like rice.
It comes with teriyaki sauce, and has two footnotes:
- “Please sprinkle seaweed and cayenne pepper before eating”
- “While eating, take care not to get mochi stuck in your throat”
