KALMAR , Sweden, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Officials with the Swedish Pizza Championships said the top prize went to a pie topped with ostrich fillet, mango, chili and fresh coriander.

Hassan Saraoe of Kalmar impressed the eight-member jury with his Exotic Ostrich Pizza and won $1,200 and the chance to represent his country at the Europe-wide pizza cooking competition, The Local reported Wednesday.

"It was a wow experience when I had a taste. The tastes were very unusual for a pizza," competition manager David Khabbazi said of the ostrich pizza. "The competition was very tough. But when the points were added up Hassan Saraoe won quite convincingly."
