Default Pineapple on a pizza

If I see pineapple on a pizza, I assume some kind of hideous accident has occurred. I mean, you'd have to be a fucking deviant. If people want to put pineapple on their pizzas privately behind closed doors, then that's up to them, but I don't think pizzerias, takeaways and frozen pizza makers should normalise or encourage it. Let's have some goddamn standards. You wouldn't download a car onto a pizza.

Your poll is broken as it doesn't have a "yes pineapple on your pizza is wondrous' option.

It's all part of the ongoing infantilisation of society. Wait for dessert? Nah, I have no discipline and was never told "no" as a kid. Fruit on my savoury junk food please. Yummy scrummy pineappley mmm. Now I've finished I'm going to throw my plate at the wall and shit my trousers.

I just don't like the pineapple/dairy combination. Pineapple on a cheese-less pizza is A-OK.

Pizza...a curious game. The only winning move is not to play.

I do love a good Hawaiian pizza. Pineapple is very context dependent though, you can't put it on there with any other topping.

Pineapple? No, NO, just NO.

And what's more, I don't know why the Pineapple eaters HAVE to have this fruit on their otherwise delicious pizzas. I like bacon, but I don't HAVE to have it on mine.

Pineapple and mushrooms on a red pizza. So glad I had several friends in college who dug this combo as well.

Whoa, whoa. What's this about "red pizza"? Pizza without cheese? This is a whole new level of batshit insanity.

I am aware of the existence of dairy intolerance

Red Pizza is what happens if George R. R. Martin walks into a pizzeria.

I find it ironic that people object so readily against pineapple on pizza, when they're perfectly fine with other things. Bell peppers? They're high in vitamin C too. Heck, tomato sauce has just about the same acidity as pineapple.

Really, you sound like those kids who won't eat onions unless they're deep fried in batter.

I don't eat pizza when I want to be healthy, so I don't refuse pineapple because I fear its vitamins.
Love onions and bellpeppers on my pizza, the main difference from pineapples is that the taste goes wonderfully with the rest of the pizza. Pineapple does not, and you are all crazy.

Heck, I don't even like mushrooms, but even that I can say goes with pizza more than pineapple does.

Pineapple is best paired with some kind of meat to get that sweet/salty thing going. Sausage and pineapple has long been my standby from my local spot. It's delicious.

In an ideal world, all polls would be public and nobody would have reason to post because their decision is self-evident. No discussion, no dialogue, just a poll vote. A click on the poll option to weakly signify one's stance in the face of the disquieting emptiness of human existence.

The perfect pizza:
-Bacon
-Ground Beef
-Capicollo
-Mushrooms
-Goat cheese
-Extra goat cheese (to be clear, there's no other cheese on the pizza, and pizza places go light on goat cheese by default)
-Pineapple
-Extra Pineapple

I loved it as a kid. Today I only go for it if it's super high quality.

Do you mean hypocritical instead of ironic? I mean, it isn't that either (If you dislike this one flavor/texture combination, you must also dislike these others that taste/feel completely different!) but irony seems like the completely wrong concept.

You have created a monster. A monster. (But I've already done my "maximum 2 toppings on pizza" rant in another thread)

Goddammit, madhair, we already have like four pizza threads. Why do you keep creating new ones?!?

We must subdivide our pizza preferences gradually until we are not known by our username or avatar, but by our Pizza.

We hadn't hit on the perfect pizza yet. But I just posted it, so we can shut them all down now.

Most toppings are gross. Cheese pizza forever. Vanilla ice cream forever.

You're close. Pizza should have some degree of meat affixed to it. I opt for ground beef myself. It's nourishing without being preachy. It's a thinking-mans pizza.

As for Ice Cream, I'm right with you. Flavours are a distraction.

Sorry, what was that? I guess I'm too distracted by how delicious this raspberry cheesecake ice cream is.
