Pineapple on pizza is a hot topic that I take very seriously.

To those who say they don’t like it on their pizza because they don’t like the taste, I can only say you probably haven’t had it done right.

No raw chunks on the top put in a little extra effort and lightly roast pieces with a honey glaze paired with fatty pork; it’s amazing.

If it has been a while since you have tried having the super topping on your pizza, treat yourself to well-prepared pizza and do not forget to cook with love.

I rightfully believe there is no place for pineapple on pizza.

If someone asks to share a Hawaiian pizza with me, I will politely suggest opting for a more Mediterranean choice.

Personally, I believe pizza is a salty dish; this may be a reflection of my Italian background or just a matter of my pizza topping preference.

I love pineapple in its sweet, fruit salad form.

However, sprinkling it on top of pizza, as if it’s cheese, is a no-go in my books.
