Pizza Art: 5 Artistic Pizzas

Pizza is never really known for being a canvas for creativity, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not. If you search the Internet, you can find dozens of examples of incredibly creative and downright fascinating pizzas that use toppings to create magnificent works of art. In fact, they’re so good that you probably wouldn’t want to eat them.

Here are 5 of the most creative and artistic pizzas that have ever existed. 



The Joker

WIth the recent release of The Dark Knight Rises, one mustn’t forget the amazing performance of Heath Ledger as The Joker, the anarchic antagonist and Batman’s primary villain in the film. The Joker is an iconic character, and Ledger’s frenetic and insane performance will go down in history as one of the greatest in modern cinema. Of course, as a result, people have immortalized him in art of all types, including, but by no means limited to, pizza.

Yes, pizza. And the result is very, very impressive. While the exact ingredients used to make the pizza are unknown (it almost looks like shavings, but of what I don’t know), one can only guess the amount of time and the precision that went into making this pizza. As such, it’s a wonder to look at, but eating it just doesn’t seem right.


Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat is an incredibly popular fighting game, instantly recognizable by the now iconic “Fatality!” and “Mortal Kombat!” scream found in the games, as well as the game’s logo, a silhouetted dragon head. It’s found in every incarnation of the game, and now it can be found on a pizza.

Using the cheese the form the dragon, this pizza must have required a precise arrangement of the cheese to make the edges so smooth, and the details so perfect. The sauce complements the perfection of the design, which compels you to “test your might” against the ravages of hunger.


Angry Birds

Angry Birds, the popular game for iOS and Android, took the world by storm. It remains one of the most popular mobile games ever, inspiring a number of offshoots, expansions, and eventually entering into the public consciousness that expands far beyond the world of video games. One guy took this to another level and immortalized the primary angry bird as a pizza.

Comprised of red peppers (a lot of red peppers), onions, mushrooms, and black olives, this massive pizza is sure to...well, sure to satisfy your craving your peppers and mushrooms, that’s guaranteed. This seems like one of those pizzas that exists solely as art and not as anything that should actually be eaten.


Yoda and Darth Vader

No information can be concerning the creator of these two pizzas, and while they’re not as detailed as some of the others on this list, you can’t deny the appeal of a Darth Vader and Yoda Pizza. In addition to the standard base of mozzarella and marinara sauce, Vader appears to be comprised of black olives and sliced mushrooms, while Yoda branches out and uses green peppers as well. The hunger is strong with this one.


Hello Kitty

These are just too adorable. little miniature Hello Kitty inspired pizzas, complete with what appears to be a pepperoni bow tie. Unfortunately, the remaining aspects of the face - whiskers, nose, etc - are too small to accurately ascertain what toppings were used, though since they’re black, we can most likely accurately assume that they’re small sliced black olives.

Hello Kitty also appears in greater detail in this collection of four cartoon character pizzas, featuring SpongeBob SquarePants, Santa Claus, Wolverine, and Spider-Man. Out of the four, Hello Kitty seems to be the most detailed, though once again the black outline, found on SpongeBob and Santa Claus as well, is just confusing. Anchovies maybe? Yuck.
