Let me please say first and foremost on this incredibly contentious topic – possibly the most contentious in a contentious time in history; there are an infinite number of paths one may take in life. In no way would i ever presume to take a single choice away from you, the choices you make in life must be yours alone – only you can manifest your own destiny. You are free & welcome to put any ridiculous thing you want on top of baked circular dough – just as i am free to call it out as a bastardisation and abomination. I’m not going to fight you on this just like i wouldn’t fight someone putting ketchup on their Chicago style hot dog, even though they are also wrong.
The question of whether or not Pineapple should go on a Pizza started going around sometime last year in the form of an internet meme and came to a head this past week when the president of Iceland floated the idea of banning it. Some take pride in the fact that “Hawaiian” style pizza was invented here in Canada and defend the sweet meets savoury taste till the death. Others – call them purists or just people with a developed palate – think that though they may have had a slice of Hawaiian (probably because all the good pies were gone and it was all that was left) and thought it was “okay” – like, that it CAN be done well but usually isn’t.
Without saying outright what camp i’m in, or again, how you should live your life – to get an informed opinion about this i called my grandmother who has been making the greatest tasting pizza on planet earth for over 60 years. Seriously, it’s next level – unlike anything you’ve ever had. It’s thicker than New York style, but both thinner AND fluffier than most common north american chain pizza places – it makes all other pizza taste like lukewarm trash, believe me.
Okay, sorry, here’s what she had to say on the topic…
