It's a weird time to be a pizza lover. KFC is using fried chicken as pizza crust, Pizza Hut is building pies atop pigs in a blanket and pizzas are getting twirled into ice cream-style cones. But in the sea of strange, there are deliciously oddball standouts, like these six zany pies that go well beyond time-honored Italian traditions to include stuff like French fries, s'mores and a whole freakin' lobster.

Finish off your pizza feast with, yes, even more pizza—this baby comes loaded with a dentist's-nightmare spread of melted milk and white chocolate, roasted marshmallows and your choice of hazelnut crumbles, bananas or peanut butter.
