Weird Korean Pizza

We’ve tried a lot of pizza in our time in Korea. Some of it is great, some of it is alright, and some of it is totally awful. Ordering pizza in Korea can be a major tastebud gamble as you never know what will be hiding on your pizza. I’m serious when I say people with allergies should be aware when ordering pizza in Korea because the pictures on the website or the flyers might just lie to you. We’ve ordered Pizza Supremes because it came with mushrooms just to discover, nope. No mushroom. Nope, doesn’t matter if you call them back, pictures are often not true for many many places. Also, corn will come hidden in every orifice of your pizza when it was never listed in the ingredients to begin with. One of our favourite phrases in Korean is actually, “please, no corn”. Also, there is an obsessions with sweet pickles being served with every pizza (and with all your pasta). Our theory for that is simply that Korean people are used to side dishes or even kimchi being served with every meal so the pickles act as a stand in. But why sweet pickles? Why sweet corn? Why must the tomato sauce be sweet? Why sweet cheese? WHY!!??? *AHEM*

That being said, we’ve had lots of good Korean pizzas. In our building, right below our studio, is arguably the best pizza in Korea, Monster Pizza. It’s fantastic–although I will say it’s based off of the North American pizza experience offering just three to four types of pizza: cheese, pepperoni, pepperoni with jalepeno, or a hidden menu cheddar bacon jalepeno pizza. There are some Korean style pizza chains we’re ok with as well. Pizza School has a nice and cheap spicy chicken pizza and Martina likes their pepperoni too…just make sure you tell them to hold the corn. Even Pizza Hut or Dominos can make a good single topping pizza, just have a healthy fear of the multi-topping special zone pizzas.

I think one of the things we’ve realized is that Korean pizza chains compete to have new pizzas on their menu constantly. Every pizza chain in Korea offers their take on a seafood laden pizza and some are better than others. Every chain in Korea has a pizza with a sweet potato mousse stuffing in the crust. Currently the cover-everything-in-four-cheese craze is happening. All the chains offer some monstrosity of a pizza made with dried cranberry sprinkled meat coated hide some nuts in there sprinkled dough thingy. I’ve never seen a pizza chain back in Canada have so many new types of pizzas come and go. Changing the pizza flavours in Korea is like a seasonal and holiday thing. Valentine’s pizza, christmas pizza, white day pizza… My favourite chain pizza in Canada is either Gino’s Pizza or Pizza Nova and while I’ve never seen Pizza Nova change their menu, Gino’s pizza has some unusual but yummy pizzas. Like olive oil and spinach pizza with feta and cheddar cheese. It’s delicious and garlicky! Or the potato pizza made with super thin potato slices served on an olive oil base with a little sprinkling of parmesan cheese? Oh man drooooooolllllll! But they’ve been serving that pizza since I was a kid. They’ve perfected this pizza. I feel like Korean pizza chains are just dumping a bunch of stuff together to compete with one another rather than make a really good pizza. I seem very passionate about this and that’s because I LOVE PIZZA. I LOVE BREAD. I LOVE CHEESE. Pizza brings all my favourite things together and it’s painful to see it mutilated.

Okay, so then let’s be clear when we say the pizzas we’re trying today do not represent the best that Korea has to offer but rather the trendiest.

Let’s look at Pizza Hut’s dreadful star-edge pizza series as for the first example of how to destroy our life with sadness. For starters, they put raisins in the crust. I’m sorry everyone, but raisins have no place in pizza. You all know how upsetting it is when you bite into a cookie and find raisins in it, and you shout out to the heavens “WHO ASKED YOU TO PUT RAISINS IN MY PIZZA?!” Well, imagine what you’d shout if you had it in your pizza! It’d surely be a lot worse than that, and because we were on camera we couldn’t shout all the bad words we wanted to shout, but – hey – it was thoroughly upsetting. Especially since they didn’t even warn us! We went back to check the ingredients for this pizza and nope, no mention of raisins. None. Just, SURPRISE! RAISINS!!!

No raisins here

And then step two of messing up a pizza, hide those raisins in kind of lukewarm cinnamon apple cream cheese which is slightly watery and slightly creamy and has all been hidden inside of a savoury pizza crust. Now take that mouth exploding experience and place it beside spinach and soft bacon steak shards. Let’s cover all that up with four different processed cheeses: smoked gouda, mozzarella, camembert, and cheddar cheese. YuuuuuuuuuuuuUUUUUM NO! Alright. WHO PUT THESE TOGETHER! RAISE YOUR HAND! TAKE CREDIT FOR YOUR MONSTROSITY! It doesn’t matter that this is a Korean pizza, this is a flavour and texture nightmare. It’s like your five year old sibling was playing house with you and decided to just put a bunch of stuff together and you were forced to eat it so they wouldn’t feel bad. This isn’t even a pizza anymore, this is just a weird dessert bread.

Looking at the Mr.Pizza Seafood Island 2 it actually was not that bad up. The seafood was pretty yummy on that pizza until we hit the deep friend shrimp. The shrimp itself was fine but there was a horrible lemonade flavoured sugar drizzle on the outside of the rim and on the shrimp which was literally syrupy. Lemon and seafood = yummy. Lemon candy + seafood = barf. I peeled the outside deep fried layer off but it had already soaked through the outer crust making the fried crust soggy and stuck to the shrimp. Why would you ruin perfectly crispy deep friend shrimp with a soggy sauce? Isn’t this Cooking 101? The bigger question is, why the need to add this sauce? There were so many flavours happening on that pizza it didn’t need that sauce! Plus if you’ll notice in the picture, it has mushrooms on the pizza. No such mushrooms present.

No Mushrooms

I also think what made the experience of both these pizza so bad was how completely different the pizza was within its own pizza. You take the first couple of bites of the Pizza Hut slice and it tastes kind of mushy and remotely cheesy, but then you hit a wet floppy meat hunk with a mouthful of sweet camembert cheese. Then you get near the end and it becomes dessert and if you’re unlucky enough you brought some spinach with you to that sweet cream cheese party. Whhhhyyyyy??? For the Mr. Pizza slice the shrimp marks your decent into sugar sadness and it’s completed with the mocha bun crust stuffed with cream cheese. I’ve had dessert pizza before and didn’t have an issue with it, but having a dessert pizza and a regular pizza within the same slice is just all mixed messaging. It’s like reaching into a bowl of chips and finding Skittles in there: it’s not that the Skittles are bad on their own, but in the context of expecting a specific flavour, the surprise is unwelcome.

I’d like to take the time now to say that the best pizza I remember having was in Norway, with the organizers of Omona. I don’t remember the name of the place. Peppe’s Pizza? Peter Pizza? I don’t know. But they had this Thai pizza that had cilantro and peanuts on it, and I swear it was just divine. Totally unexpectedly stupid delicious. And they give you a ranch sour cream sauce that you cover your slice with as well. Norway: I’d live in you just for your pizza if the rest of you wasn’t so expensive. You make some damn good pizza!

If you’ve had a bad pizza experience in Korea, let us know what was wrong with it. Pizza’s become a universal thing now so everyone has their own take on it so I’m curious if some of you love cream cheese in your pizza. In which we can never be friends. Hahah just joking! Or am I…Supposedly there’s a kebab pizza as well and it’s great as well, but I never had it. I’m not sure how it would taste. Is this a real pizza? I bet you it’d taste a lot better than what we had today, though! Also we didn’t toss out the pizza, we shared it with the whole studio! Sadness all around! Hahahaha.

We have some extra scenes from this week’s video as well, if you feel like a bit more pizza swearing:

  1. Are there any pizza places in Korea that aren’t chains? it’d be cool to see what some family run places are like :) Also I really miss how your videos used to be in playlists, so the bloopers would play right away. Any chance of that coming back?

    • Yes, also many gourmet restaurants run by chef-owners. But I noticed Simon and Martha often show chain stores or over-commercialized restaurants maybe because they are more easily found and more foreigner-friendly. But most Koreans mention old unappealing small restaurants in back alley as their favorite “best taste” restaurants.

  2. I’ve tried the Mr. Pizza one in this video so I was pretty excited to see you guys eat it, haha
    When I ate it in the restaurant itself it looked closer to the picture though. I thought it was pretty good cause I love seafood so much, and the coconut shrimp is good too only cause I really like coconut shrimp. But it is really sweet though! Ever since moving to Korea I have cravings for either Korean style or “American” style pizza depending if I was salty stuff or sweet. However, I found that Papa Johns here tastes pretty close to the ones in the States.

        It’s a blog posting about a restaurant ‘Rocky Mountain Tavern.’ there are some pictures of menu, and there is Poutine in specialty fries section. But, despite this posting is only a month old, i can’t find poutine in website menu. So… maybe call first…?…
        AND! Whoever read this comment, can you tell me the grammar errors or miss used words(if you have enough time…)? It will help my English study alot…;) thankyou!

  9. In the dining halls of my college (in MA, USA), sometimes they’ll have some really weird pizza flavors. The weirdest I’ve seen are mac and cheese pizza, oreo pizza, and apple pie pizza. My friend said she also saw s’mores pizza or something like that. I’ve never touched the oreo or the s’mores pizza, but the mac and cheese pizza isn’t so bad. The apple pie on is like apple pie in pizza format, but it’s a bit disappointing.

  11. You know how you guys did your walking tour of the Hongdae clubs?? Could you do a walking tour of your favorite restaurants or places that you frequent the most?
    Or maybe a Free Park adventure when its warmer out?? Or a walking tour that goes through all the food carts outside (when its a bit warmer!)?? I really want to see a video of the twisted donut thing that you had in your collab with Ann!

  12. The thing about this i literally cant believe is the price… Oh My Good Gravy, almost 30 bucks for a “medium”? Is is because cheese and bread stuff is pricier and less available? It actually seems insane in more ways that just price, I like many intelligent and beautiful people don’t want my entire meal smashed up into a handful of so many flavors my head explodes with a single bite. Insanity.

  13. Why you gotta hate on oatmeal raisin cookies, man? I understand that not everyone has good taste in food, but I figured even people like that would still like oatmeal raisin cookies. Gonna have to re-watch your old fapfaps and question everything you’ve said now.

  14. I really like Papa Murphy’s, they put together your pizza and you take it home to bake. You have so many choices in toppings and some crust options. I really like adding fresh veggies to my pizza and if you have veggies to use up at home just chop them up and add them to the pizza. I’ll admit I’m kinda weird and like corn on my pizza. My friends now ask me if I brought corn to put on my pizza lol XP

  15. I think I’ll just stay far away from pizza in Korea. The Thai pizza and the one from Gino’s both sound amazing! The best I’ve had are: a local place that has thin, crispy crust, regular cheese with lumps of ricotta baked on it, all made in front of you; a cheese and jalapeño thick crust pizza that I had to use a fork to eat, but god DAMN was it good; and a pizza with diced tomato, mozzarella, and lumps of pesto. There’s a place here that makes a taco pizza, they put refried beans on the pizza instead of sauce, then give you crushed tortilla chips to bake on top ( you take it home to bake it yourself ). So many good pizza memories~

  18. It was late at night in Seoul 2 years ago, and I was walking back to my dorm and starving. I just wanted food and the convenience store nearby was out of kimbap, so I stopped by an open bakery (my first mistake) just to get whatever they had. My friend said some of her classmates always got french bread pizza at this bakery for breakfast, so I thought that was a safe option (my second mistake). Yes, it had corn, but that was to be expected from watching your previous videos. As soon as I took the first bite, I knew something was off. The cheese melted/dissolved in my mouth. My suspicions were confirmed by reading the ingredients, because waaaay down the list was: mayo…*shudder*. The “cheese” was actually mayo that had been squirted on to look like cheese shreds, then baked. So. Wrong.

  19. I am very picky about my pizza. Even in the U.S. I have the hardest time trying to find pizza that I like. I usually cannot bring myself to eat the pizza in my dining hall. However, every once in a while they come up with a pizza that I think is good enough to eat. I find most of the pizza absolutely gross in my dining hall, even the “safe” cheese and pepperoni. Those are actually the worse. The best pizza that I have had in my dining hall was probably the buffalo chicken pizza that had buffalo chicken, celery, and ranch on it (ranch is a must for my pizza, so it was great that they included it for us), I’ve also had their Hawaiian Pizza and Taco Pizza, but those weren’t as good.
    I have a very good pizza chain near my home called Zanzi’s that makes the best pizza I have ever had and it’s very cheap. Some of my favorite pizzas from them are their Supreme Pizza, Barbecue Chicken Pizza, and Buffalo Chicken Pizza.
    CiCi’s Pizza used to be great too, I loved their mac n cheese pizza, but I don’t live anywhere near one anymore. It would take several hours to get to the closest one in another state.
    I think my high school actually turned me off of pizza. Every wednesday was pizza day, but the pizza almost always tasted like cardboard. I have had so much bad pizza that now I am very picky about what my pizza tastes like.

    • You don’t perhaps go to Waynesburg University do you? I liked the school except for the meals especially in the main dinning hall that it took you awhile to get something you could eat even the pizza which the crust wasn’t cooked through. Sure make good food when you have people coming to look at the school then not so good food for remainder of the days unless something special was going on. Hell even their chicken was under cooked most of the time. FIT had the best pizza and they cooked their Pizza in a brick oven! It was sooooooooo good.

  20. Due to gluten and dairy intolerance, the only restaurant pizza I can have is Mellow Mushroom’s gf crust with Daiya cheese. It’s about the size of the pizzas (maybe a little smaller) in the video and upwards of $22 the last time I checked. The toppings are great, though. (Big slabs of terrific bacon and lots of fun options.) What’s funny is my sister has an egg allergy in addition to my same intolerances, so when we get a pizza together I triple-death check with them that they’re using the newer vegan gf crust and vegan cheese and then promptly order the mighty meaty option. (Worst vegan ever.)

    Getting frozen gf df pizza is kind of like getting it from another country in that you’ll come away feeling sad or betrayed if you bring anything but Totinos-level expectations to the experience. It’s also like it in that sometimes you really are happy to pay premium prices for something that only reminds you of the pizza you’re used to.

  23. There is this tiny pizza chain here in Norway that’s called Pizzabussen (Literally, The Pizza Bus) and two of my favourites is “Taco pizza” and “Kebab pizza”. Make no mistake, though. The Taco is the best one ~ Peppes pizza is everywhere here, though. And expensive. Even for our standards, imo.

  24. I feel like there’s a dessert pizza out there where cinnamon cream cheese in the crust would be delicious. However, that hypothetical pizza does not include spinach or ham. O.o There’s actually a local pizza place where I live that has a totally delicious bbq chicken pizza that uses cinnamon but I feel like that’s an exception not a rule.

    Also, am I the only weirdo who wants to try pizza with corn on it? ^.^

    3 years ago
  25. Is it weird that I never noticed sweet corn on any of my pizza in Korea? I mean, I always knew it was a reoccurring topping here, but the ones I ordered never had any. Then again I usually stick to one kind of pizza once I find one I like, so I’ve never been very experimental.

    The only ‘seasonal’ pizza I’ve ever tried was the Fire Chicken Pizza from Pizza Hut, back during the Buldak craze in Korea- years ago now! And that was actually quite okay. Then again it didn’t have sweet lemon sauce or raisins in/on it.

    Props to you for actually trying these!

    I’m personally a fan of fruits on pizza, especially pear + brie cheese combo, but I think Korea’s biggest problem is that they sometimes just throw so much shit on the pizzas that it ends up being inedible. Not to mention the overuse of sugar.

    Here in Sweden we put pineapple or banana on out pizzas from time to time, but that’s as close as we get to the Korean madness I guess. Pizza with kebab on it is hella popular, kebab on its own is hella popular, but the cheese + meat pizzas are most common in general as in many other countries I think. A thing we do however is to serve the pizza with a cabbage salad on the side (cabbage, oil, vinegar, salt, (pepper) and oregano). It’s a pretty awesome salad tbh :D

    That seafood island pizza reminds me of a pizza I tried in a Norwegian pizza chain. It was tasty, but I’m pretty sure there was way more sugar in it than was necessary. It might just be that Norway is more into thick and juicy pizzas while I’m more used to more savory and plain ones. I would probably also live on Norwegian pizzas if they weren’t so expensive… I would get used to their style in no time.

  29. I’ve had some pretty different pizza experiences along my life:
    1 – São Paulo, Brazil – amazing pizza, we have all sorts of toppings, some which go overboard, but, unlike the Korean one, actually go well together. “Plainer” pizzas are also a thing, people will usually order a plain cheese on and a more “topped” pizza. Places usually have something like 30 different flavours. We also do thin and thick crust, but deep dish isn’t really a thing outside some “imported” chains.
    2 – New Caledonia (“France”) – bizarre but delicious, the pizza there was a complete different take on the concept. The dough was usually very, very thin, resembling leaf bread more than anything. Very little sauce, and curious toppings – roasted potatoes with deer sausage, eggplant and honey. It tasted very good, but didn’t seem like “real pizza” to me.
    3 – New Zealand – They have the chains, like pizza hut (in which the reg pizza is exactly the same size as the one you got, but at least goes for 10 nzd, instead of nearly 30 usd), but they also like some strange toppings, like cranberries and such. We had one that was pieces of smoked chicken, two different cheeses, tomato sauce, cranberry sauce and yoghurt sauce. It tasted.. interesting, but was horridly expensive and a little bit disconnect, like you said with the korean ones.
    4 – NY pizza – I know people make a lot of NY authentic pizza, but.. no. It tastes like very poorly made cheap pizza – not to mention kind of chewy, ew.
    So, yeah, I’m a little biased towards the pizza in my hometown :p but some people do say its the best outside of Italy! :p

    3 years ago
    • Your description of the NZ pizza sounds like it could have potential – I think someone clever could create a kickass white pizza with chicken, cranberry, and cheese. I think eliminating the tomato sauce would be crucial though…

    Have you tried Alvolo? I think that’s how you spell it… It’s a mini chain throughout Seoul. They use a brown or black rice flour for their crusts and it’s so chewy and delicious.

  31. These pizza sound like they are put together by mean drunk culinary students. Being a vegan, I am totally about creating interesting new pizza styles since cheese isn’t much of an option. But man, none of these ingredients really make sense together. I am thinking the companies are trying to make new pizzas without introducing any new ingredients as a way to save money. But the whole idea of taking savory foods and keep adding sugar is weird to me, but isn’t unheard of. I remember buying a Korean cookbook and feeling a little weird that all the recipes used sugar in it. Not much, just a teaspoon for a whole dish. I guess it is a big cultural thing.

  36. Hey guys,
    Well, the moment you found that raisin, probably found the reason the price is so high. I have been looking for raisins since I love raisins… maybe even in a pizza (Runs away screaming). Anyway, so far the raisins I found were ridiculously expensive -_-‘

    Question, is that the “real 46cm pizza” that I have seen advertised everywhere? Serious, what is the obsession Korea has with their 46cm pizza?

    As for my pizza experience in korea, we had pepperoni pizza once, from domino’s, which was perfectly normal.

    Btw: “olive oil and spinach pizza with feta and cheddar cheese” that sounds absolutely delicious… Drooling.

  37. A group of friends and I were watching some rugby at like 1:45am in Gangwondo. We had been drinking a bit, so one of my friends went on Yogiyo to see if anything was open. One place was, and they had a pizza + chicken set (pretty standard). We then asked him what types of pizzas they had. I have to preface this by saying there were no pictures to go on. Very important!

    Anyway, he scrolls through the list and he says they have the standard options. Cheese, pepperoni, combination, etc. He gets to one he’s not sure about, and asks if anyone’s had “베리 베리 피자.” No one had, and so me and my friend start talking it over. Our Korean is pretty good, lots of rural life experiences to get it up to par. We start brainstorming ideas and come to the conclusion that it’s probably a pizza with a ton of stuff on it. We decided it was “Very Very Pizza.” Fair enough. So the pizza comes and everyone tears into the box and takes a piece.

    It looks like a standard cheese pizza, but it’s after 2am at this point so no one’s asking questions. I take a bite, and immediately all I taste is sweet. I ask anyone else if they taste the sweetness, and they do. I take a better look at the slice, and it looks like there are two crusts. I take the slice apart, and almost die laughing. Crust, strawberry jam, crust, pizza toppings.

    Pizza Hut in general tastes like either cardboard or tires. I think wherever you go, Pizza Hut makes you question your pizza choices. If it makes you feel better, HK Pizza Hut has this thing on their menu: http://i.imgur.com/zaHPsqQ.jpg

      • I agree; that was a good FAPFAP, as well. My little town only had two pizza places – Pizza Bingo and Mr. Pizza. Anytime the foreigners mentioned getting pizza, our Korean friends would ask if we were going to Mr. Pizza. When we said we were going to Pizza Bingo, they all turned their noses up. Pizza Bingo pizza, though not great, was so much closer to North American pizza, it’s the only one we went to, but I guess for Koreans, it just doesn’t cut it.

        Side note, most Koreans I’ve talked to has said that they go to Mr. Pizza with all their friends, order the salad bar, and the cheapest, smallest pizza. Then, they eat their fill of cheap salad and take the expensive pizza home. Perhaps that is how you should approach the place.
