Ah, the great pineapple pizza debate! It’s a topic that has divided pizza lovers all over the world and sparked some seriously heated arguments. But where did it all begin? Well, it all started with the humble anchovy – once the most controversial pizza topping around. But then came spinach, and now…pineapple.

Who started this anyway?

It’s very origin also sparks controversy, but it’s generally believed to have been created in Canada in the early 1960s by a Greek-Canadian named Sam Panopoulos. Oh Sam, just look at what you have done! While some credit the invention of the Hawaiian pizza to other people and places, Panopoulos is widely recognized as one of the pioneers of this sweet and savory combination. And whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying that pineapple pizza has become a cultural phenomenon.

It’s just not traditional

Some people just don’t like the taste of pineapple on their pizza – and that’s okay. After all, taste is subjective and everyone has different preferences. But for others, it’s not just a matter of personal preference – it’s a matter of tradition and authenticity.

In places like Naples, Italy – the birthplace of the Neapolitan pizza – putting pineapple on a pizza is a big no-no. They argue that it goes against the very essence of the dish and takes away from its authenticity. Alrighty then…

Half the population can’t be wrong… or right?

Of course, social media has only fueled the fire, with memes, jokes, and polls popping up all over the internet. But despite all the controversy, pineapple remains a popular pizza topping, with nearly half of Americans reportedly enjoying it on their pies.

So, while the debate over whether or not to put pineapple on a pizza rages on, it’s clear there are plenty of people out there who enjoy the sweet and savory combination. And who knows – maybe in a few years, we’ll all be arguing over the next controversial pizza topping. Anchovy and spinach, watch out – there’s a new contender in town!
