Pineapple on pizza has always been a polarizing debate. Some love it, some hate it. I happen to dislike this combo very much.

While I am a fan of most sweet and salty combinations, fruit paired with meat on a pizza is just plain wrong. The pineapple flavor is overly powerful. It lingers on everything it touches, leaving an unpleasant, fruity sweetness.

Taste isn’t the only issue I have with pineapple on pizza. It seems that every time my friends and I order a pizza, there’s always that one person who wants a Hawaiian. It stirs arguments and creates debates when we should just be enjoying a warm non-pineapple-laced pizza. Sometimes we go for a half and half compromise, but the smell and flavor of the pineapple doesn’t stay on its side.

Pizza is meant to be enjoyed by all with whatever toppings you please. As with most things in life, there are no right answers but there are definitely wrong answers (it’s pineapple).

Pineapple on pizza is a divisive and unholy food that should be scraped off the Earth.
