It’s one of the most heated debates in existence. Does pineapple belong on pizza? It depends on who you ask.

This is a very sore subject and a long-debated topic. Some say that only crazy people want pineapple on pizza. Pineapple on pizza lovers may say that non-pineapple-on-pizza-lovers are crazy.

The true name for this type of pizza is Hawaiian Pizza, however, its origins don’t live up to its name. This pizza was made by Sam Panopoulos, a Greek man who moved to Canada in his 20s.

Some people say that since it’s fruit like tomatoes it’s a healthy pizza topping. So if you think of it like that then you don’t feel as guilty eating pizza. We’ve all had that feeling that we should have a salad instead of pizza. Now I’m not saying you should eat pizza all the time cause that’s not healthy, or put lettuce on actually gross pizza cause.

Professional chef Gordon Ramsey said pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza. Then again Ramsey doesn’t like a lot of things and yet people agree with him. Now would you want to base your opinion of the topic based on someone else’s opinion? 

The pizza was not invented to have strict rules. It was invented for people to be able to put their twist on it. You can believe what you wish but don’t put someone else down just because you don’t believe in what they believe.
