Something you feel strongly about.
Lots of things? Hmmm… to pick one.
Ah, the presence of pineapple on pizza.
Pineapple is one of the very few plant substances I am okay with on pizza – those being: tomatoes (both fresh and sun dried), spinach, garlic, broccoli, carrots, onions (green – all the time, others – some of the time), apple/pear, and pineapple. This list has expanded quite a bit in the last few years.
Pineapple pairs wonderfully with pepperoni. The pepperoni is spicy and umami and the pineapple’s tart sweetness contrasts very nicely with that. For me, it is the perfect combination – plain pepperoni seems to be lacking something for me if it is not paired this way. Heck, in a lot of cases, I’d probably prefer to have just the plain cheese than do without pineapple with my pepperoni. I am okay with Hawaiian pizzas, though in most cases I would prefer to have the pepperoni instead of ham (one exception: Little Ceasar’s Hawaiian – that shit is amazing, for some weird reason).
