Pineapple has become the most debated pizza topping the world has ever known. And yes, despite how silly that sounds, you know that it is true.
I don’t care who you are or where you live, there’s a 99% chance that you’ve disagreed (or even argued) with someone over whether pineapple belongs on pizza.
Let’s be honest, pineapple will never belong on pizza. Yet some people insist on being wrong!
Pineapple Pizza Appeared in the 1960s
Anyway, I’m pretty sure that this debate has been going on since the 1960s. The Hawaiian Pizza, which features ham and pineapple on top of cheesy pizza goodness, was invented by Sam Panopoulous at the Satellite Restaurant in Toronto back in 1962.
Pineapple enthusiasts say that it belongs on pizza because it brings a bit of sweetness to balance the otherwise salty pizza.
The rest of us sane pizza eaters say pineapple should be kept far away from pizza, especially since the fruit is wet and will leave you with a soggy crust. Yuck! Besides, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay firmly stated that pineapple doesn’t belong with pizza. Disagree with him, and he’ll put two slices of bread on your head and call you an idiot sandwich.
