Except of course that 58% of respondents in this poll have said that they like pineapple on pizza. So perhaps you could recognize that your personal preference against it does not mean that it's an "incompatible taste."

mmmm. To be frank, that sounds pretty closed minded. I can see just not liking a certain food combination, but just slamming the door on a whole idea seems rather extreme. But, no matter. There's lots of foods I just don't like at all that others go bonkers for. Sushi is one. I had a mental block with pineapple on pizza for a long time, till I tried it, then I was sold.


My Mom used to make baked ham with pineapple when I was a kid, and I still make that myself today. As I think about it, Hawaiian pizza isn't much different. Pork and pineapple just work well together. Sheesh, their coming up with some wild pizzas these days. lol, Used to be pizza meant pepperoni and cheese. Not all the combinations are for everyone (like your personal aversion to pineapple) but different strokes.


I will confess that I don't like syrup on pancakes or waffles. I can stomach it, but I much prefer jam or preserves. Berry in particular, raspberry or boysenberry being my favorites. Some things people do with bannanas make my nose curl. Like milkshakes. I find bannanas to be very limited in practical application. But a lot of folks just dig them in all manner of things. Any more with foods I try to keep an open mind.

Bread is a food made of flour, water, and yeast or another leavening agent, mixed together and baked. I fail to see how the crust of a pizza is not bread.

Is "pizza dough" with butter, cinnamon, and sugar on it a pizza? How about raspberry sauce and mascarpone?

I've had hard boiled egg on pizza, but that was in Kathmandu.

No, bread with sweet stuff is not a pizza. There are different names for that. Is a round piece of toast with jam on it a pizza? I think not.

Exactly. Nor does a savory topping a pizza make.

Pizza, I believe, must have a typically Italian sauce on it. Not hollandaise, not tikka masala, not mayonnaise, not brown gravy, and not BBQ.

I don't know when he invented PP, or pineapple pizza but I remember having it in New Hamphshire in the shadow of the now-collapsed "Old Man of the Mountains" near Franconia Notch in August 1969.

I like ham and pineapple pizza and think the tangy tomato sauce blends well and gives it a sweet and sour vibe but much more low key. I really can't remember it ever NOT being a thing so to hear people talk as if it's alien is really odd to me! But don't even mention bbq chicken on a pizza to me, that's just vile.

Now, I do like sunny-side-up eggs on pizza, so boiled eggs are okay with me.
