With unlimited possibilities, recipes and combinations, these are following foods that you can put anything in with ease, in your own liking.
The Top Ten
1 Soup

4 Hamburger

Similar to bread, hamburgers are typically made with cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and beef. While they are considered customizable, the size is limited - you can't add more than several layers without it toppling over.

Burgers can be eaten on their own, or you can add cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and buns to make your own personal delicious hamburger.

5 Salad

If you want a healthier yet versatile food that doesn't cost much, salad is the right path. From the iconic Caesar salad and tomato salad to fruit salad and green salad, salad is easily customizable with many ingredients, condiments, and dressings.

6 Rice
7 Pizza Pizza is a yeasted flatbread generally topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an oven. It is commonly topped with a selection of meats, vegetables and condiments. The term was first recorded in the 10th century, in a Latin manuscript from Gaeta in Central Italy.

This famous Italian food is highly customizable. Even with standard toppings like pepperoni, cheese, and onions, pizza is an easy way to satisfy a picky eater's preferences with the right combinations.

8 Pasta

Pasta is a healthy food that is open to customization. With hundreds or thousands of recipes and the right combinations, pasta can satisfy anyone's appetite, including the picky eaters.

You can add a wide variety of ingredients, and there are also diverse shapes of pasta to choose from. This makes pasta one of the most customizable meals.

9 Tacos A taco is a traditional Mexican dish composed of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling.

With similarities to sandwiches and hamburgers, tacos are among the most customizable foods. Although the space between the folds can be limited, it's enough for various flavors and ingredients. Tacos are just the right size to satisfy one's appetite.

10 Ice Cream

You can get chocolate ice cream, strawberry ice cream, mint ice cream, vanilla ice cream, and many other flavors. Ice cream has a cold yet sweet taste, and there are many flavors to choose from.

I love ice cream! There are so many things you can customize about it: the flavor, the toppings, and even the container!

The Contenders
11 Burrito
12 Chocolate Chocolate is a typically sweet, usually brown food preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground, and often flavored with vanilla.

Chocolate comes in many forms, mostly referring to chocolate bars. It is pretty versatile as you can blend in sweets such as nuts and marshmallows. One notable thing about this food is that chocolate is one of the most designable (similar to cake) foods on this list. This is why there are many variants of fancy chocolate bars.

13 Couscous

You can prepare couscous as a salad, dessert (for example, by mixing dry couscous with cocoa powder and cinnamon, adding boiling water, and finally mixing in honey, pumpkin seed oil, and Zante currants), or mix it with stir-fried vegetables (such as tomato and zucchini).

14 Sushi

Sushi, the Japanese food that we all love, remains uniquely versatile despite being sometimes finicky to eat. You can add a good mix of vegetables, meat, and fruit to sushi.

There are hundreds of recipes for sushi rolls, including cucumber roll, dynamite roll, and California roll.

15 Pancakes
16 Curry

It's always good to mix rice with some chicken.

17 Cereal

It might be surprising to see cereal on this list since most of us eat it plain with milk. To spice up your breakfast, you can add various fruits such as blueberries and strawberries, or anything else you prefer.
