An Iowa pizza place is at the center of massive online controversy after social media users got wind of their Froot Loops pizza.
Fong’s Pizza, a restaurant that “combines flavors and inspiration from the Far East and the West,” has made the unusual novelty pizza permanent on its breakfast menu in Des Moines.
It’s made from a sweet cream cheese sauce, mozzarella cheese, real frozen loops, and a drizzle of Greek yogurt and condensed milk – ingredients that many Twitter users say should never be on a pizza.

“Making pizzas outside the box has always been a staple of Fong,” said owner Gwen Page
“Making pizzas out of the box has always been a staple of Fong,” owner Gwen Page told the Des Moines Register. “Now we’re trying things out for breakfast pizzas.”
The dish actually debuted elsewhere in the restaurant five or six years ago, but only recently became a permanent offer at its Forest Avenue location.
“I think this – in its fun, little, quirky way because the fong goes with a T – is a way of spreading friendliness,” said Page Today.
“You look at this pizza and it’s a rainbow. It should bring a smile to your face, even like,” Wow, this is crazy, I have to try “or” Wow, these guys are crazy! I can’t believe they do that. “
“We wanted to offer an option that we thought would be fun for kids because of the suburban market,” she added. “But we also love doing things that just aren’t off the wall. What can we do to give people this truly unique experience? This is what we strive for at Fong. “

The Crab Rangoon pizza appeared on the Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate,” while General Tso’s pizza appeared on Man v. Food.
But while the locals may love it enough to keep it on the menu, some social media users are appalled.
“Hard pass for me too – dear #Fruitloops, dear #Pizza, but some things are best enjoyed separately!” wrote one.
“Ok, personally, I draw the line with cereal and yogurt in pizza,” said another, while a third simply wrote, “Iowa, man, I don’t know.”
Oh no! But while the locals may love it enough to keep it on the menu, some social media users are appalled
“Terrible pizza toppings ideas must be one of the plagues in the Bible,” tweeted another, while another quipped, “This could be so offensive that the selection committee will refuse to accept Iowa in the NCAA tournament this year.”
Grocery store brand DiGiorno said the Froot Loop cake wasn’t pizza and tweeted, “Please don’t disregard the word pizza like that.”
“It was clearly too much responsibility to give Iowa as much influence over our presidential election as before,” wrote another Twitter user.
“I am against the death penalty in general, but I can now see why there would be exceptions,” said another.
Controversial: In 2019, Papa John’s debuted in South Korea with an ‘American Hot Dog Pizza’, which was made from eight whole hot dogs, one for each slice
Oh no … South Korean Papa John’s restaurants have sold some other weird toppings in the past, including a shrimp and lemon pizza
Yikes … pictures on the brand’s Instagram account show someone tearing off a lemon to squeeze juice
Pizzerias around the world have been making some questionable versions of the beloved dish for years.
In 2019, Papa John’s in South Korea released a limited edition ‘American Hot Dog Pizza’ pizza that absolutely appalled most Americans.
The pizza consists of eight whole hot dogs – with one piece on each slice – and, according to Chew Boom, also comes with chili salsa sauce, mozzarella cheese, cheddar and potato mousseline, onions, Dijon mustard sauce, and cucumber relish and parsley toppings.
While it may have been a hit in Asia, English-speaking commentators were appalled by the creation, calling it “gross” and “abomination”.
“The most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen,” wrote one, while another switched on: “No, no, no. Don’t call this thing American.”

Yes or no? QC Pizza in Mahtomedi, Minnesota, sells a dish called Big Dill Pizza
Ingredients: It’s made with dill garlic sauce, 48-hour Canadian smoked bacon, pickles, and lots of cheese
Odd: Unlike traditional pizza, there is no red sauce – which is probably a good thing given the pickles
Meanwhile, in Mahtomedi, Minnesota, QC Pizza is selling a dish called Big Dill Pizza, which is made with dill-garlic sauce, 48-hour Canadian smoked bacon, pickles, and lots of cheese.
The cucumber pizza certainly has its enthusiastic fans, but for tomato sauce and mozzarella traditionalists, the unexpected topping is synonymous with blasphemy.
“It’s becoming increasingly clear to me that we need a national conversation about what we call pizza. This is not a pizza, ”wrote a Twitter user.
“If you put pickles on your pizza, you get the f *** off my face,” wrote another while a third said, “Pickle pizza is probably the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”
QC Pizza has some other funky cakes, including taco pizza (made with sausage, taco-flavored cheddar, onions, lettuce, tomato, and Doritos) and the “sour pork” pizza (made with Canadian bacon, sauerkraut, red sauce, and mozzarella ). .

“In Sicily this is punished with stoning,” wrote a critic at the time.
“That makes me choke,” wrote another, while a third added, “That’s why the aliens won’t visit us.”
Months earlier, Tony Boloney’s, with locations in Hoboken and Atlantic City, New Jersey, introduced its Devour Ramen Pizza.
Made from a ramen noodle crust, with shoyu broth, pickled soy-boiled egg, rayu (a Japanese chili oil), shichimi-tugarashi (a mixture of spices), wageri-tgarashi (another mixture of spices, nori flakes, spicy Chilli oil, spring onions). and roasted sesame seeds.

Sparkle! In 2017 DagWoods, an Italian restaurant on Wilshire Blvd. Santa Monica began serving glittering slices of rainbow
In 2017 DagWoods, an Italian restaurant on Wilshire Blvd. started serving glittering rainbow slices in Santa Monica.
The ‘Magical AF’ pizza is just a regular cheese and tomato sauce tart, except that the mozzarella on top is saturated with edible glitter that is sprinkled with a rainbow pattern.
The cake has pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple glitter starting at the crust and circling down the center.
While some social media commentators were skeptical that a glitter-covered pizza might taste good, those who tried it and posted pictures online promised that it was like a regular cheese pizza.
