In Japan, the onset of spring is synonymous with the cherry blossom, or sakura, season. To attract some of the thousands of locals and tourists that flock to parks to see the beautiful, albeit brief, two-week bloom, many restaurants offer sakura inspired specialties.

This year, the chefs at Tokyo’s Schmatz Beer Dining, created a cotton candy pizza. Available at the brewpub chain’s Kanda neighborhood location, the thin crust pie is just like any other cheese pizza, except for one thing — it is topped with a mound of pink cotton candy sprinkled with cherry blossom petals. Before taking a bite, customers are asked to drizzle the delicious-looking pie with some honey ginger sauce that melts the spun sugar and blends it into the cheese. Though there is no word on how the pizza tastes, it sure looks good.

Unfortunately, it was a short-term offering that was timed to coincide with the cherry blossom season which came to an end on April 2 in Tokyo. Hopefully, the restaurant will bring the pizza back next year, or better still, make it a permanent fixture on their menu.

                      Kinda seems weird but I'd try it. I tried a Smores pizza and a cookie pizza how different could it be?
