One of the things that I love to do in Japan is just walk around for hours exploring different areas and shops. Walking down random streets here is such a different experience from in Vancouver and it’s also a great way to become familiar with the neighborhood. After wandering around Hitachi for some hours, I decided to take a break and stop in at an old Japanese diner serving mostly Japanese versions of Western foods. I stuck with my pint of Asahi Dry beer, but my friend ordered a classic dish…corn pizza!
This is very popular in Japan, but it’s such an unusual pizza elsewhere that I thought it deserved its own little blog post. One thing I know for sure is that I’ve never seen it at any pizzeria in Canada! Corn pizza sounds a bit weird, but I’ve tried it in the past before I went vegan and the corn adds a sweetness to the pizza that’s really quite good! I’d choose this over Hawaiian pizza any day.
