Some of the best foods originated from strange flavor combos. Why was peanut butter combined with jelly in the first place, and who decided to freeze cream, eggs and sugar to make ice cream? Another unexpected but genius combination is crab rangoon pizza!
We know that pizza is delicious, and crab rangoons are obviously a crowd pleaser. But crab rangoon pizza? This amazing dish was invented by Fong's Pizza, a restaurant that expertly combines Asian flavors with American and Italian dishes.
