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.

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.

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'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.

No.

Meat is one of the easiest things to do wrong on a pizza. If a place can't make a good pizza with meat (and most places can't) they are much better off only doing veggies (or probably just cheese).

I'd like to think that I have a pretty sophisticated palette, and I'll eat almost anything, but I only put ketchup on my hot dogs, because that's how I had them as a kid, and if I'm going to be a grown-ass adult eating a hot dog, then acting like a kid feels like the whole point.

Pineapple pizza is one of those things where the people who like it? It's their favorite. Meanwhile everyone else just wonders what the fuck is wrong with them because it's clearly garbage.

I thought Hawaiiaiaiiaian pizza was the best idea as a kid because it was the most Ninja-Turtle-y. Then I had one and got food poisoning and never again. Then when I was ok with eating regular pizza again I put some M&M's on one because fucking Ninja Turtles rule. That's really decent, actually. And if you don't think so then I can fall back on the Standard Internet Food Preferences argument that you're a provincial, uncultured boor who would go into an actual museum and do an actual projectile diarrhea onto a Monet. While wearing undone bib overalls. Barefoot.

I think what's tough about pineapple is that specific acidic citrus with that specific savory dairy. Tomato sauce is acidic, but not nearly as much as pineapple, and not nearly as sweet. The two flavors, to me, are at odds.

I like to eat at gas stations. You can get good meals there.

I went to a gas station in the last several weeks that had a bakery attached it. That bakery produced many pizza specialties—king among them was the Spicy Apple Pizza. I never tasted anything so freaky delicious in my entire fucking miserable life.

That was the only reason to visit that goddamn fucking gas station. Until they lacked the ingredients to create what was on their menu. Now I can never go there again.

But knowing that spicy apple pizza is possible—more than I ever thought was ever possible—motivates me to want to try my hand at creating my own pizza from scratch.

Whenever ordering pizzas with my family, my sister and I were the only ones that ever wanted pineapple, but she always wanted ham with it, which just ruined it for me.

Green pepper does this for me, and it's a bit embarrassing, to be honest. I don't know why; I love green peppers! I love them in salads and stir-frys, and I'll sometimes even slice one up and eat it raw as a snack. Just... not on pizza. Even if I were to pick them off, I'd still taste that they were there. I swear I can taste it on the slice if a green pepper just casts a shadow on it at any point.

And for some reason, none of that applies to red/yellow/orange peppers, or hot peppers, or anything else. Just green peppers.

A restaurant I worked for did a pretty cool variant of General Tso's Chicken in a sauce made mostly of honey, sambal and ketchup (nothing exotic or interesting, really).

I was thinking that maybe a 'lighter' sort of breaded and fried chicken like that using a tempura type batter) could be nice, with a sweeter sort of sauce like they used...

But I think any breading itself will naturally overpower the essential pizza-y elements. It wouldn't be bad, it just wouldn't make for really great 'za.

I would rather have a pizza made entirely from pineapple than have one with anchovies/olives on. I find both of these things highly offensive on a pizza. And sweetcorn. Stop taking up space for better things, you gash.

Oh man, anchovies and olives is like my favorite pizza topping.

(Ok, ok, joking - the flavors would be too strong. But one or the other is great.)

personally the best pizza combo is black olives + mushrooms

Like so. But with green olives.

it's very difficult to think of a single topping that couldn't potentially be good on the right pizza

pizza is the infinite canvas

I read in a book about pizza once that anything can be a pizza topping.

And you'd better believe I played that trump card pretty much every time the "name a pizza topping" card came up in some sort of board/card game that we used to play (I wish I could remember the name of it).

Pineapple salsa is fairly simple, I've used it with other southwest pork recipes, sometimes southwest shrimp recipes too. It's basically just standard fresh salsa, like a pico de gallo, but with pineapple instead of tomato.

In this case it was one drained can of Pineapple Tidbits (something like, what, 15 oz I think?), which I chopped a bit to get smaller pieces. One half of a red onion finely diced, and a jalapeno pepper finely diced. All of those are stirred together with the juice from a lime (the acidity is really crucial) and then you let it sit in the fridge with the flavors blending until you need it. Whenever I make fresh salsa I usually make it in the morning for use in the evening, but at least one or two hours ahead of time would work as well.

The pork burritos were fairly simple. I took a smallish-medium sized pork roast (loin in this case since I didn't want it too fatty), cut it into cubes and coated it with a homemade taco seasoning (a couple of packets of the dry pre-made stuff would work too) and threw the cubes and seasoning into a heavy bag with some garlic cloves and let it marinade in that overnight. In the morning, right after I made the salsa, I threw the meat into the slow cooker with a can of diced tomatoes for the liquid and let it cook on low for eight hours while I was at work.

Since I had some big-ass tortilla shells I also made some quick seasoned rice and drained some black beans to throw in there as well, and since the seasoning on the pork was mild I also topped it with a healthy dose of sriracha and some shredded pepperjack.

Overall it made about eight large burritos, most of which I will be freezing for quick dinners in the future when I don't feel like/have time for cooking.

And since I'm going over my burrito strats, I'll also say that I reheat my frozen burritos in the microwave and then finish them in a hot dry non-stick skillet over medium heat to toast and firm up the now soggy tortilla shell (obviously I don't toast any of the ones I freeze beforehand).

I kinda went into 'brag about what you cooked' territory there, but the point is pineapple salsa and southwest styled pork are a good combo.

I used to be like this, then made the transition roughly 8 years ago and am much happier for having done so. My parents are two of the pickiest, least adventurous eaters on the planet (my mother won't even eat rice), and I was raised on fish & chips, chicken fingers, and McDonalds, but my ex-wife absolutely wouldn't stand for it.

Panda Express has decided to react to the price increase in eggs not by just having fried rice without eggs, but instead by replacing the egg with corn. Which, they're not even the same thing at all.

Bunk Moreland
09-25-2015, 06:34 AM
I think that's the problem. Japanese pizza with corn is either a regular tomato sauce pizza with corn as one of many toppings (i.e. Domino's Japan's vegetable pizza), or it's just one more thing added on to an unholy combination of things that do not mix well on pizza. Tuna, corn, potatoes, and mayo? Those are great in a salad, but on a pizza, even one with some kind of light white sauce/butter, it doesn't taste any good, IMO. Which is weird, because buttered corn on the cob is amazing, only topped by adding soy sauce. And a baked potato with cheese is great. I think it's just that adding bread gives it way too much starch for me.

Also, to bring this back around to pineapple pizza, Domino's Japan adds corn (unnecessarily) to their tropical (ham and pineapple) pizza. It's part of why I have never ordered one.

I think around here goat cheese is seen as an "up-scale" topping, so it's fairly common at places that are trying to be a little bit fancy as far as pizza goes, but not so much at your basic "good cheap pizza" types.

I'd eat that.


I've recently come to realize that Domino's is pretty okay around here, at least as far as fast food pizza goes. Back in the 80s when I was growing up they were terrible but their pies are pretty different now. Of course, their politics are still execrable (the founder is commitedly anti-choice), but Papa John is an Obama-hater and Pizza Hut donates overwhelmingly GOP too, so whatcha gonna do? (Buy local, I suppose, which is admirable but not always practical.)

Dominos around here is alright. Good, even.

On the subject of fruit on pizza, I'm generally more of a watermelon and orange kind of guy than pineapple. But has anyone ever put either on a pizza? I'm curious now.

Belated response since this thread came back: There was a place in Seattle I went to years back that did a Hawaiian sort of pizza, but they used little mandarin orange sections instead of pineapple. Very good, have done this myself since.

Pineapple only works on pizza because of how well grilled pineapple works as a side to a savory dish (i.e. barbeque).

Not sure how well other cooked fruits do in this regard. In fact I can't really think of too many fruits that are cooked in a non-dessert context (besides savory fruit like tomatoes/peppers).

Roasted or fried apples are a traditional accompaniment to pork, and cooked pears find their way into salads somewhat often.

Bananas and plantains are super common in Caribbean cooking.

Hmm interesting. I wonder if a pizza could work with an apple-based sauce. Maybe with pulled pork as a topping. Not sure what kind of cheese... maybe some sort of swiss/asiago blend or something?

Traditionally, if you have a tart apple, a softer, more creamy cheese like gouda works best. If it's a sweet apple, use sharper cheeses like cheddar.

Pagliacci, a Seattle chain, does a seasonal pie with pear ad gorgonzola. It's ridiculously good.

I've never heard of them but I got a great commercial spec script.

Man at psychiatrists office

Psychiatrist: What's the problem.

Guy: I'm hungry.

Psychiatrist: You should eat your troubles away at Pagliacci Pizza. And with two large pies you can get a 2 litre Royal Crown Cola for half off.

Guy: But doctor... I AM PIZZA!

Prychiatrist: ... I don't think your trouble is that you are hungry. I believe that you may have a serious mental illness.

Guy: MY FLESH IS DOUGH AND MY BLOOD IS MARINARA! EEEEEEEEAAAAAATTTTT MEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I don't know. Would that actually do it for him? The deli meat part of that equation could be in the minority (depending on how generouse Pagliacci is with the toppings).

Pear is a common pairing with gorgonzola, yes. Throw in some prosciutto and red wine reduction drizzle and you've got a damn fine flatbread pizza.

As above, I bet apple would be great on a BBQ pork pizza, too.

You know what's not great on pizza, though?

Pineapple.

Pizza + goat cheese + pineapple = heaven

The holy trinity. The only way to salvation is through pineapple.

If I'm having goat cheese on my pizza I'm most likely to pair it with roasted red pepper. Maybe some prosciutto and basil as well, but goat cheese and roasted red pepper are one of the greatest flavor combos in the world.

One time I ordered a goat cheese pizza from a pizza place, and smoked duck from a pan-asian place. I shredded the duck and put it on the pizza. It was so rich I could only eat a couple of pieces at a time but dear lord was it amazing.
