Granted, pepperoni and mushrooms with extra cheese never do not satisfy. But in honor of the National Pizza Week (which starts today), try to order one of these regional specialties that could completely change your pizza perspective.
. 1 Truffles // New York City
Autumn is the truffle season, and New York's restaurants and pizzerias love using fluffy mushrooms for their tastes. When the supplies are shipped through the city of restaurants, you will find various places where pies get the shaved delicacy. Reviewers like Song E Napule in the West Village.
. 2 Lobster // Boston
It is no surprise that crustaceans, which occupied the coast just hours before serving, will be a specialty of the city. But Boston also does an excellent job of integrating shellfish into its Italian-inspired cuisine: One of the most notable dishes is the scampo at the Liberty Hotel (and the former prison), where chef Lydia Shire takes a thin crust pizza and thins heavy cream , Garlic and the meat of a whole two-pound lobster.
. 3 Provel Cheese // St. Louis, Missouri
If you think you've tried every possible type of cheese on your crust, you might have missed the proprietary version of St. Louis: Provel, a highly processed blend of Swiss Provolone and Cheddar. Gooey, waxy and thick, can be found in the chain Imo, which also acts as the distributor of the cheese.
. 4 Crab // Baltimore, Maryland
While other pastry shops in the area throw crabs on their menu, Zagat explains no less than Zagat's authority that Matthews Pizzas crab pate is worth a road trip. It's a pizza that is so good that it helped writer David Simon through a stint at HBO's The Wire (1

. 6 Salad // Los Angeles
It seems to be a cliché: Of course, the addict L.A. would save calories by pouring salad over his pizzas. But looks can fool you. Gray Block Pizza in Santa Monica uses the dough with cheese, onions and sour cream topped with a chopped salad, lemon-olive oil dressing and a layer of fresh avocados. It's thick, crisp and has no way to spare your waist.
. 7 Barbeque // Memphis, Tennessee
Barbeque chicken pizza is everywhere, but if you want to get it right, go to Memphis and pick the pork. Coletta's – the city's oldest restaurant – takes a standard crust and drowns it in pulled pork and its typical barbecue sauce. The pies are so good that Elvis Presley has a check that Colonel Parker (his manager) pays out monthly. If you are not on site, you are welcome to send one.
. 8 UNCOOKED, A.K.A. OHIO VALLEY STYLE // STEUBENVILLE, OHIO
While some bloggers have compared this practice to pizza baking with a lunch-box, it is undeniable that it is a fascinating attitude when making a pie. Pizzerias in Steubenville like to cook the dough and then add uncooked cheese and toppings to the meat so that the heat from the crust can slowly melt the cheese, or a can is used to steam the top.
. 9 Kangaroo // Sydney, Australia
The adventurous meat lover may want to head to Sydney, where local amenities like the Australian Hotel offer pies with rich kangaroo meat. Slices of Roo tenders are marinated in a pepper-onion-olive sauce. If this is too tame for you, the hotel can also serve a saltwater crocodile.
