This week's My Pie Monday is a special edition featuring some of the craziest pies that your fellow Slice'rs created in 2011. The pies that arrive in the Slice mailbox each week are a source of constant inspiration. There's a lot of personality that comes through in the various styles and toppings. Here we have some of the wackiest ones to pass through the galleries this year! We'll be back to our regular MPM schedule as of next week. Look for any pies submitted between the 16th and 29th of December to appear in a deluxe New Year's post then....

I'm kind of surprised there aren't any pizzas topped with towers of buffalo wings this week! Still, we have some fun pizzas for this week's My Pie Monday, including a crazy yellow Margherita from Scott D, a Japanese pizza from hmw0029, and a crust that's made with pecan flour from Norma427. Plus, great contributions from Burger365, Cookhacker, Amusebouche1, Rick C., James S., Dhorst, Adam Kuban, and Gregmcg.
On the menu on this fine My Pie Monday: a Sicilian pie (Pizza-Lab style) from bartonkt, a purple potato-topped pizza from drewdeboy, and a sausage-studded NY-style pie cooked up by Olsonmatt, plus, a mouthwatering array of pizzas from Amusebouche1, BobTomDon of Dallas, Norma427, billgraney, dhorst, townbench, hmw0029, James S., and Slice's own Adam Kuban.
Oh, boy. A ton of great My Pie Monday submissions this week and lots of great inspiration from the likes of ESNY1077, hmw0029 (an unconventional MPM but super awesome; see above!), Pizzablogger, Pizzasnob, Marisa R., Kevin B., dhorst, Dave Martin, climbhighak, and James S. Check out the slideshow above and see if it introduces you to your brand new favorite pizza!
Any traveler who visited Japan may have encountered a "traditional" Japanese breakfast at a hotel. It may have a piece of grilled fish, miso soup, rice, onsen tamago, nori, and Japanese pickles. But an everyday breakfast is more like this: A fluffy, thick toast with butter, ham and eggs and a green salad.
What is a bread-snatching race? Not exactly a festival food, but I'm curious if other cultures have similar games, so I've submitted it to the Culinary Ambassadors series. While I am not a fast runner, I was somehow very good at this race as a kid. Give me food, I run faster. How it works: You run up to a bar that's dangling breads, bite the bread off the string, and finish running while still holding bread in your mouth.
