Here's a pizza topping we never expected to see offered.

We understand that smoked reindeer is a favourite topping in Finland but python?

Evan's Neighborhood Pizza in southwest Florida is offering customers a pie that includes a topping of fresh python.

According to WPXI, The restaurant's "Everglades" pizza contains just about every living creature you'd find in the Sunshine State's swamps: frog, alligator and swamp cabbage.

Owner Evan Daniell told the New York Daily News the unusual topping has been surprisingly popular.

“We're selling them left and right. It's a happy accident; it's about being creative.”

A medium 14-inch Everglades pie goes for $45, and that's because python meat can cost about $66 per pound.

The station says Daniell has considered creating a "roadkill" pizza, which would include raccoon, armadillo and possum but has had trouble finding a supplier for the specialty meats.

Or customers, perhaps?
