Fish-shaped pizza debuts in Japan

Japanese pizza chain Aoki’s Pizza — the company behind Ramen Noodle and Natto Okonomiyaki pizzas — has launched its fish-shaped pizza and it’s making headlines around Japan.

A report posted in Japan Today showed that not only is Aoki’s new menu item shaped like a fish, but it’s got a special name too, called the “Swim!! Mackerel Pizza Kun.”

According to Japanese naming conventions, adding the informal “kun” male suffix at the end of the title personifies the pizza in a cute and friendly way.

“You might want to hold back on getting too fond of the little guy, though, because he comes filled with a whole host of tasty ingredients that are meant to be devoured,” the report said.

The 23-centimeter long pizza retails for 2,280 yen.

Produced in collaboration with the popular Yokkaichi Himono Shokudo restaurant in Mie Prefecture, which specializes in high-quality dried mackerel, this limited-time pizza contains vegetables, mozarella cheese, and a tasty barbecue mustard sauce, along with the star ingredient of dried mackerel.

The pizzas will be on sale at Aoki’s Pizza outlets around Japan until July 11.
