Why Pineapple On Pizza Is A Sin

An unforgivable one at that.

I understand that this is a controversial topic, but listen, pineapple just doesn't belong on pizza. Simple as that.

Lately on my Twitter timeline, there has been this huge argument about pizza toppings, specifically, the pineapple. I started seeing it when @GeeksOfColor on Twitter created a poll and then voiced their distaste for pineapple on pizza. I naturally agreed because what are you doing with pineapple on your pizza, but when I saw the end results of the poll, the world seemed a lot more divided than I expected.

On pizza, Wikipedia states: "It is commonly topped with a selection of meats, vegetables and condiments." Is pineapple considered a meat, vegetable, or condiment? No.

If you want pineapple on a pizza, order a a fruit pizza. Fruit pizza is a sugar cookie crust with a cream cheese "sauce." Common toppings for fruit pizza include strawberries, peaches, kiwis, blueberries, and pineapples.

WHY ARE YOU SPOILING YOUR GROUP'S PIZZA WITH YOUR PINEAPPLE WHEN FRUIT PIZZA IS WAITING FOR YOU? You might say fruit pizza isn't available one dial away, but you can literally go to the nearby grocery store and purchase the Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, cream cheese, sugar, and all of the pineapple you want.

Next, let's talk about how pineapple on pizza got popular. For the longest time, I wondered why Hawaii would ever attack pizza the way they did. Who hurt you, Hawaii? Turns out pizza never hurt Hawaii.

This is all the work of our neighbors to the north. This was Canada's doing.

A Greek-Canadian man by the name of Sam Panopoulos created this pizza simply because he desired more toppings rather than mushrooms and meats. Listen, before you agree with his argument that you should be able to put just about anything on the pizza, he attempted to make a different pizza popular and it was called the Spanish Pizza.

The pizza had a biscuit mix crust, Vienna sausage, and yellow rice. Rice on pizza? The grain is already there. The rice should've been the big red flag about Sam but we let him continue to create weird pizza toppings anyways.

I get that Hawaiian pizza is popularized because it has ham, but to those of you getting just pineapple - what is wrong with you? Pizza is a savory dish that never needed your sweet spin. If you want a sweet spin, get yourself a slice of fruit pizza or order a lava cake at Domino's.

Just please don't ask me if half the pizza can have pineapple. The answer is an always will be no.

If Your Major Were a Pizza

Extra cheese please!

Pizza is a college staple. It's the only food that somehow is acceptable at any time of day, and undoubtably has a special place in the hearts of college students everywhere. Have you ever wondered what your major would be as a pizza? Here's your chance to find out once and for all.

Business: Thin Crust

As a business major, you know that time is money. You simply don't have time to waste dealing with cheesy crust or unconventional square slices. You like your pizza like you like your negotiations: fast and easy.

Criminal Justice: Pepperoni

As a criminal justice major, you just want things in your life to be uncomplicated, and selecting your college major is no exception. Pepperoni pizza allows you the security of a classic. It's less boring than plain old cheese, but without the fear of too many unusual flavors.

English: Plain Cheese

You love the classics, and why ruin a good thing? Books can honestly be so complicated, you just want your pizza to keep things simple. Besides, you can't have any toppings falling onto your precious special edition copy of The Great Gatsby!

Fine Art: California Style

You like to keep people guessing. Like the California Style of pizza, you never know what you're going to get. Anchovies with blue cheese? Pencil shavings topped with unicorn hair? Who knows!

History: Neapolitan

You like things authentic. Toppings should be kept to a minimum to maintain optimal pizza flavor perfection. In your opinion, nothing beats the real thing!

Liberal Arts: Chicago Deep Dish

Like the deep dish pizza, you have many layers. Sometimes, you're stuffed with cheesy goodness, other times it's a complete surprise. You possess an emotional depth which resembles a thick, rich, many layered pizza.

Nursing: Spinach

After a long day of reading about the deteriorating effects of junk food on the human body, you just want to feel good about your pizza choices. Of course, there's no way you could sacrifice pizza, no matter what any of your textbooks say. Putting spinach on it makes it healthy, right?

Math/Accounting: Detroit Style

You can't stand the geometric travesty that is triangular pizza slices. You long for order and symmetry. The Detroit style square slices give you what your heart most desires, with a crispy edge to lock in the deliciousness.

Philosophy: Tomato Pie

Why does the sauce always go under the cheese? With the Tomato Pie pizza, the traditional balance is inverted as the cheese is under the tomatoes. This allows a new richness of flavor that challenges all normal ways of thinking about pizza. Philosophy majors require this level of sophistication in their pizzas.

Best Cheap Eats at University of Wisconsin-Madison

It's so hard to find a good falafel pitas.

Aside from being the capital of Wisconsin, Madison also houses the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Additionally, a lesser known fact is that they have some of the cheapest and best food spots ever.

As if that wasn't enough, the city is dynamic and culturally diverse, which allows for all different types of food and cool spots to check out. If you ever find yourself in Madison, attend the UW, or are looking for a cool weekend foodie spot, here are some places you should definitely go to!

The Banzo Falafel Pita from Banzo
I am a falafel fanatic. Seriously, I'm obsessed with them, but I haven't been able to find a good spot with them since leaving Madison. But, the best place in Madison is Banzo, which is known for their pita falafels and fries. Actually, they have the best everything.

Seriously, I have never eaten something from Banzo that I didn't like. They have an actual store off campus, and a food cart on the library mall. Plus, they deliver, so cheers to that!


Mac and Cheese Pizza from Ian's Pizza
Ian's pizza has a few different locations throughout the US, so if you're lucky to spot one, definitely go in for a slice. Madison houses two locations, one on State Street and one by the Fluno Center. I'm from New Jersey, so I know good pizza, trust me. But, I still find myself wanting this pizza over any NJ slice.

It's basically the best mac and cheese you've ever had, but on a thin crust slice of pizza. It was actually named the best pizza in Wisconsin, and you should try it before you die.


A Spring Roll from The Fresh Cool Drinks Food Cart
I've thought about this spring roll every single day since leaving Madison. For only $3 you can get a healthy, diet friendly spring roll that is the size of a burrito. It includes rice noodles, avocados, cabbage, spinach, iceberg lettuce, peanuts, your choice meat and a sauce all wrapped in rice paper.

I literally ate this everyday for lunch for so long. I'll admit that the wait around lunch time can be long, but it's worth it- trust me! I've also heard that they make amazing smoothies too.

Man Makes Tiny Cheesecakes in a Tiny Kitchen

Small but delicious.

If you haven't already heard of the Youtube channel Miniature Space, you're missing out.

Try not to think about how weird it is that this grown man owns a tiny whisk, tiny mixing bowl, or a tiny dining room set. Instead, let his quiet, mini cooking show mesmerize and relax you.

Warning: While this video may be incredibly relaxing (I've started using them to fall asleep to), it will also remind you that this guy can cook three mini cheesecakes better than you can probably cook a normal one.

Also, take stock of that tiny bookshelf with tiny books on it. Now that's some tiny commitment.
