Tonight after seeing Stuck on You (which i thoroughly enjoyed, i love the Farrelly Brothers...) with Despina, we went and got a pizza: the usual half BBQ Meatlovers and half Super Supreme. After we started eating i quickly got into my usual ravings on the topic of pineapple on pizza.
I am staunch opposer to pineapple on pizza, and anyone who has eaten a pizza with me would have heard this argument at leat once. I mean, c'mon, what moron decided one day to put pineapple on a pizza?? A pizza is generally regarded as a savoury meal: its got the dough, a tomato based sauce, cheese, meat, capsicum etc... Why put pineapple (generally regarded as a sweetish fruit) on this sort of savoury dish. I equate this to putting chocolate or plums in a meatloaf: they just don't go!! One is a sweet fruit, the other a savoury meal!
Don't get me wrong, i've got nothing against pineapple, i eat the stuff by itself, on pavlovas, fruit salads etc... but the last thing i want to taste when i'm eating a good tasting pizza is the taste when you bite in a pineapple.
C'mon kids, leave the pineapple to pineapplely things such as pavlovas, fruit salads, etc and stop ruining perfectly good pizzas.
Note: Apologies if i have offended any pineapple-pizza lovers, but this is my view.
