I read about a Japanese pizza with corn and mayo. Sounds interesting! I'd like to order from a place that is popular in Japan, but that's NOT considered fancy, artisan, or gourmet. From which restaurants can I order, preferably by delivery, in either Tokyo or Kyoto? Which toppings are traditionally ordered along with the corn and mayo?

    I can't believe someone would be so cruel to bake @MarkMayo into a pizza! :O

I have been living in Japan for more than an year now. While I agree with the suggestion by @joe to try "Saizeriya", where you can get a decent pizza for a budget-friendly price, I would like to suggest another option that satisfy your needs.

Japan has a variety of Pizza flavors and there are food chains that offer almost all of them at a reasonable price like 'Dominos'. They have the app (English and Japanese) for both Andriod, iOS and Website where delivery is possible to almost any location in Tokyo and Kyoto. You can also custom make your own pizza in the app/website, which would be useful if you are vegetarian. The other suggested flavors to look for are Jaga-Mayo(Potato-Mayo) on Dominos menu. The prices are decent than many other pizza chains and download/use the Dominos coupon app for huge discounts available all year.

Cheers!

    I am sure you do not intent to spam that one pizza chain. But can you tell us how you are connected to them? Just a happy customer, working for them or something else again?

  • @Willeke And yet even if there's a connection, it's not as if those are referral links. They're just generic web links.

  • @Willeke I am just a regular customer with them as my go-to store for pizza cravings on a moody day to go along with Netflix. Hope that solves your investigation :) Happy Halloween! Commented Oct 30, 2019 at 23:34

You could try Saizeriya. It is basically a budget chain of Italian restaurants. You can find many of them in central Tokyo.

  • ...ehh. While Saizeriya does absolutely tick the OP's boxes of "not fancy, gourmet or artisan", everything at Saizeriya is precooked and reheated, and the one pizza I had was pretty dire. Perhaps the good news is that after a few glasses of their ¥100 wine you don't care? Commented Jun 30, 2022 at 4:58

I would suggest Shakey's Pizza. Yes, it's originally an American chain, but they're (in)famous for deeply localizing their offerings. What's more, they have cheap all-you-can-eat buffets ("viking", in Japanese) for both lunch and dinner from ¥1400/person, so you can sample not just Mayonnaise Corn, but other only-in-Japan delicacies including:

  • Potato Pizza
  • Cuttlefish & Olive Pizza
  • Cuttlefish, Tuna & Laver [nori seaweed] Pizza
  • Chocolate & Banana Pizza
  • Cinnamon Apple Pizza
  • Burger Pizza [I'm not sure what this is and I'm afraid to ask]

What's more, you also get monthly specials like the three above: Spicy Rice Cakes Pizza, Rainbow Dessert Pizza and Yangnyeon Chicken Pizza.

I am, however, somewhat sad to note that my favorites the Fruit Salad Pizza (yes, from a can, with cheese on top) and the Squid & Pickled Ginger Pizza seem to be off the menu. Sic transit gloria pizza de Iaponia.
