Does Pineapple Belong on Pizza?


Harmless on its own, it is arguably the most divisive food-related debate: Does pineapple belong on pizza? Some swear by it, whilst some are disgusted by the thought of it. But are few chunks of tangy pineapple on a pizza so bad? Let us know LiveTriber’s, does pineapple belong on pizza?

    Since I started eating Pizza from a family owned Pizza place in Katoomba in 1975 they had pineapple on the Hawaiian and Vegerama, they also had different sizes, and the good old Aussie Pizza (which had an egg right in the centre) now most chains have one size and Hawaiian is called Ham and Pineapple and is not classed as traditional. There are things I don’t like eg mushrooms but I don’t go around telling people it doesn’t belong on Pizza, each to their own is what I say.

    It all comes down to personal taste. If you don't like it, you don't have to eat it.

    Doesn't it matter? i personally like it but I've noticed with a lot of my fiends that they don't like the idea of "putting fruit on pizza". Which is fair enough, people just have their own preferences.

    From a health perspective, one must Never mix fruit & grains. You need to self-educate on the consequences of your ignorance! The best way to eat lots of Certified Organic Fresh fruit is as a mono-meal, then wait for 15-20 minutes before you choose the next fruit.

    I'm the same as Bruce. Personally I prefer any other type of pizza except ham & pineapple. My wife and grandchildren love their ham & pineapple, so any pizza night as ti include at least one of those. I like pineapple as a fruit, but not cooked. To each his own.

    Personally I don't like pineapple on a pizza, I believe it's a fruit and used as a desert, either hot or cold BUT its personal preference my wife loves ham and pineapple pizzas.

    It’s simple if you like it have on the pizza. If you don’t there's the option to take it off. It’s really not a question to ask when you have a option to take it off. It basically comes down to personal preference.

    I make pizzas for a living and pineapple is still very popular as a topping. It adds a sweetness to other more savoury flavours

    I say each to their own. Who am I to judge whether someone loves a bit of pineapple, olives, anchovies or chili on their pizza. Sure the pizza purists won't have it but that's not to say it hasn't become a firm favourite in many peoples pizza topping choices. Change is enevitable. Otherwise dessert pizzas wouldn't exist either! There is a special kind of joy in food flavour combinations that aren't the norm. Go for it I say!
