For better or worse, pineapple on pizza has been the trend.

I make pizza at home (haven't eaten chain or restaurant pizza in several years), and certain family members insist on "Hawaiian" (pineapple and ham), so I wind up making at least two, even three, kinds of pizza in one shot about once a month. I can often find fresh pineapple at the local grocery store, and cut it up into slithers, or I buy crushed in the can; also uncured ham or just regular ham, once in a while deli prosciutto or salami.

Personally I like it with escarole (first had that in Naples itself), but also with some combination of mushrooms, onions, olives, and arugula.

The only way I would allow a guest in my house to eat (if they were really that insistent) that would be to take them to a back room. Close the door. Place the food on the tiny table in the middle of the small dimly lit room. Seat them cordially. Allow them that one last meal.

Then I would shoot out the lights.

Many things can be tasty baked on dough but I tend to think of things other than a tomatoey sauce, cheese, and traditional Italian toppings as tarts and not pizza.

I'm only joking about the murder thing. Heh heh. But there is a certain flavor in the combination of cooked pineapples and ham (Canadian bacon). I had it once when I was a kid and never knew what it was for years. It certainly did NOT taste sweet. I would have rejected it outright if it had. If it's sliced thin and small enough that you don't know what it is after it is cooked, then it's pretty good. And it's probably better on certain pizzas where the sauce is not sweet, almost acidic.

If it didnít have red sauce I would try it, but the idea of pineapple and tomato sauce sounds unappetizing to me.

Why? Some tomato sauces are sweeter than others, aren't they? They have more sugar. Pineapple is a naturally sweet source. Tomatoes are fruits as well.

Anyway, it has nothing to do with sweetness which I remember from the first time I ate it, and the second time I tried it. That should be cooked out. I'm very traditional in my pizza toppings preference. I don't even like chicken. But this actually makes sense to me, when it's combined with ham.

I prefer a spicy pizza, not a sweet pizza, so pineapple on my pizza just doesn't work well for me. Our family enjoys meatball, pepperoni, and green olives on our pizza with red pepper flakes sprinkled on.
