10. Winter double king pizza (Pizza Hut, Japan)

What's on the Winter Double King Pizza? The better question is, what isn't on it? The meaning of the name is unclear, but here’s what you get: a pizza topped with mayonnaise, king crab, shrimp, beef, broccoli, onion, corn, egg, and potato. The most remarkable feature, though, is a removable crust made of fried, mayonnaise-stuffed shrimp that look like little pigs in blankets. A medium costs 2500 Japanese Yen, or $23 American.

Would we eat it?: Given the number of ingredients on this thing, there's bound to be at least one item for everyone.
