Pineapple on Pizza?
« on: March 05, 2018, 04:42:05 AM »
Yay, or nay?

Personally, i think it's ok with certain pairings of toppings. I find it goes good with ham. A ham and pineapple pizza. With other pizza things, not so much. I would even go so far as to omit the pepperoni.

On occasion.

Depending on the franchise with the regatta sauce, I’ve had with ham and stuff like feta or hot sauce but you have to have something that compliments the taste like the right beer or drink

Agreed. Depends on what it's paired with. I take after Wade Wilson in such matters:

It's called Hawaiian in my country, but I have no idea where it comes from. It's not BAD, but yeah.

  I LOVE pineapple on pizza!  A delicious mix!

  Hawaiian Pizza is actually a Canadian invention, from what I've read. More to do with the travel-based PR at the time than any actual care for the culture. If you want to be authentic to Hawaii, I've heard putting kimchi on your pizza is closer to the mark.

  Personally, I like it this way. The mix of fruit and meat is somehow ideal!

Pineapple makes it watery all too often. Drain it well, maybe. I'm just dubious, and there are so many superior toppings.

Like beef stroganoff.

Second best topping on pizza next to the superior choice of kebab pizza. Hawaiian pizza is a close second though if the pinapple isn't too water. Hate when it is fresh out of the can (lets face it its rarely fresh) and all watery making the pizza soggy, but otherwise.. fucking hell yes! Give me that pineapple pizza anyday!!

Ziether and Sara have hit the nail on the head with it sometimes making the pizza soggy...or of course it can go the other way and the pineapple chunks get dried out, which is just as unappetising.

I’ve had Hawaiian pizzas a few times but I usually picked the pineapples off and ate them separately, so I don’t know if that counts as liking it or not!

Btw, whats a craft dinner? Is that like those instant macaroni things? Those are gross no matter what context you put it in, much less on pizza.

I've really only had pineapple pizza on a thin crust at a buffet. Yes... for those who don't know, pizza actually comes buffet. I'm a fat ass, don't judge.

But yeah, the pizza isn't soggy at all... if anything its usually a little dry. If memory serves, they do it up with bacon sprinkles. That's pretty damn good, too!

Ham and pineapple go very well together. (It's no coincidence that, if you order a gammon steak, you can choose to have it topped with a fried egg or a grilled pineapple slice - at least in the UK.) I just don't care for them on pizza. Both are much more satisfying cold.

For the record, I don't believe there is such a thing as a 'wrong pizza topping combination'. I'm a total anarchist when it comes to pizza and sandwiches. Combine whatever the hell you like.

Polenta is cornmeal mush, generally fried until crispy on the outside, but the inside is still sort of 'melt-in-your-mouth'.  It's particularly good with maple syrup.  (And bacon - although that's not very vegan.)

It's an abomination unto Nuggan.

But I don't really like pineapple anyway, which I suspect is more the issue. Sugary things on pizza are fine within reason (red onion marmalade as an example), but I'm not really convinced tropical fruit is the answer to that particular question.

Back in college, we had a 'Professor Emeritus' (or basically, 'Teacher who can teach whatever he wants to') who did a number of off-beat classes at 8:30 AM (because that way, he knew that only people really interested would sign up).  One of those was 'History of Ancient Greece and Rome', and for one of the classes, we had authentic Roman-style pizza.  No tomatoes (New World, and also believed poisonous), not a whole lot of cheese (goat cheese would have been most likely) - and the one topping that I can safely say I will never consider putting on a pizza ever again. 

Yes, I have actually had a pizza with anchovies.

Luckily, there were other topping combinations available.

I'm of the opinion that pineapple on pizza is an abomination :P but I have eaten it before. In situations where it's what there is to eat, I tend to pick off the pineapple. It's really not my favourite thing (although I like pineapple as a fruit).

I actually had a friend who would order 'veggie lover' pizza without cheese.  I forget if he was lactose-intolerant, or vegan, but the local pizza place would do it right up for him.

Pineapple on Pizza here is like... the cheese pizza of America. Hawaiian pizza (tomato sauce, cheese, ham, and pineapple) is something you order as the safe option at parties. Everyone eats it, including kids. I think it's because our culture uses pineapple in a lot of cuisine, including soups, curries, fried rice, and even bbq!

Imagine my surprise and amusement when the debate about pineapple on pizza started.

I love anchovies on pizza. But not on a pizza with pineapples. As a kid, my favorite kind of Pizza was Hawaiian with pineapple and canadian bacon.

My tastes have... kind of... evolved since then.

I still can't resist "Macaroni and Cheese" pizza at my local parlor though. (Yes, it's Macaroni and cheese on top of a pizza. Don't judge me.)

My usual preference though is vegetarian with lots of artichoke hearts and olives and sun-dried tomatoes. But I will still eat and enjoy Hawaiian. Or really, let's be honest, anything so long as there's not too much tomato sauce. I love sun dried tomatoes or fresh tomatoes on my pizza. But tomato sauce, IMO, sucks. So it's gotta be either low sauce, or something else entirely.

My current ideal pizza without modifications is Papa Murphy's Gourmet Vegetarian with Olive Oil and garlic "sauce".

Unless you count the $50.00+ pizzas at some of the crazy-ass places. But I can get my Papa Murphy's Pizza for under $15.00. And it's at least 90% as good.

I can't believe I haven't posted in this thread yet!

I never used to like pineapple on pizza, it just seemed conceptually untenable. But as I sampled pizza buffets which I never knew existed until I moved to Sacramento, and they put out more and more combinations, I started trying ones that had pineapple with various other topping combinations and some of them weren't half-bad. In particular, I discovered, were the ones with the garlic white sauce rather than red marinara, and I finally got it down to a science where it became one of my favorite combinations. You get pineapple, garlic sauce, and one or two greasy meats, and sprinkle on the parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes to taste, and it's simply the best. That sweetness with the salty tang of the garlic sauce and meats, it's just amazing.

If cocaine is used as a flavoring/preservative of pineapple, I for one think that it does belong on pizza.  ;D

This link might work better for you.  It's a BBC story about a similar bust - which was actually more creative.  The Delaware news story had the kilos hidden in the wooden pallets.  The Portugal bust had them camouflaged a bit better.

(WDEL is a local news station, which might explain the link issue.)

A place near us does a pizza buffet, including 'dessert pizzas' (which are basically a sweet dough with toppings).  One is an apple pie variety, but I could see doing something with crushed pineapple.

A place near us does a pizza buffet, including 'dessert pizzas' (which are basically a sweet dough with toppings).  One is an apple pie variety, but I could see doing something with crushed pineapple.
A sweetened dough, as one might use in pastry, with a cooked sweetened condensed milk (basically caramel) sauce, with some various fruit slices as the topping would probably be amazing. Not something I could reasonably eat, though; I'm imagining the carbs in the hundreds for just a slice.

And since I can't edit.. forgot to mention using the chocolate--milk chocolate, perhaps?--as the sort of 'cheese' equivalent, just shred the chocolate real fine, and sprinkle on top of it all.

Now you're just teasing.  :P  ;D

And yes, they are just as carb-heavy as you imagine.  The place cuts them in very narrow slices.

You mean something like this?  Also, fruit carbs are not equivalent to dough carbs. It's a totally different type of sugar and way it is processed by your body.

That is--wait for it--literally what I was picturing in my mind (except pineapple instead of kiwi, since we were talking pineapple). Also, yes, very good bringing up the glycemic index. As a type 1 brittle diabetic, I actually find that fruits, especially fruit juices, are bad for me due to their high glycemic index (the body processes it very quickly, and it's hard to balance the insulin intake timing with the way the body processes that sugar). I mean, in theory, I could get the timing and the ratios down right... and fruit juice is excellent for counter-acting a low. But something like complex carbs from whole grain doughs takes a much longer time for the body to break down.

Fruit juice often has added sugar, which is why it is so horrible. Berries, pineapple, and grapes typically have the highest amounts of sugar in them, while less sweet/more tart fruits have lower amounts. I'm a LADA diabetic, and fruits are one of the things that actually barely touch my blood sugar levels. Any sort of bread-type dough or potato product and my levels are pushing the accelerator as if they're trying to win the Indy 500. Yet I can eat a ton of pineapple or grapes and barely register an increase. But you won't find me drinking fruit juice unless it's no sugar added.

The one I've seen doesn't look nearly that healthy.  Streusel topping is involved.

I've always seen them on some sort of pastry dough or sugar cookie base (though honestly, you could put them on pizza dough just fine), with a cream cheese sauce and a myriad of soft fruits on top.
