Pineapple

I was hanging out at a friend's house this afternoon and she and her husband ordered pizza for us to eat while we watched a movie. They ordered one veggie that had pineapple on it. I don't understand why people like pineapple on pizza. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, and don't care for sweet n' sour dishes, or non-dessert dishes that are sweetened. They should be spicy, or salty, or tangy, and only desserts should be sweet. The pineapple took away from the taste from the wonderful broccoli, black olives, and green peppers, I'm sorry.

WHOSE idea was it to put pineapple on pizza?? Then why stop there? You could ruin pizza other ways by putting on it strawberries, grapes, hell, even M&M's...

I'm a huge Seinfeld fan too! I have to ask, did you see the episode where they are all singing the song, "Downtown," by Petula Clark? None of my coworkers (who are also big fans) can remember this one! I thought it was hysterical!!! Anyhow, I'm new to this, can you do me a favor and check out my blog and see if it's ok? Let me know if you think the song on it is good or not if you get a chance? You'll have to have the song playing on Itunes or your stereo while you read it to really get a good sense of it. You'll understand what I'm talking about when you get to it. Thanks! Scott

duuuuude!!! my FAVORITE pizza is black olive and pineapple. i love the pineapple. the other things you suggested sound nasty. even i have limits.

p.s. i'm thinking there is more likely something wrong with you, than there is with me. ;)

River Selkie, I don't disagree that there's anything wrong with me. ;) Uh, but I think most would agree that liking pineapple on pizza, and not liking avacados,is much more weird..hee hee ;)

Quatch, I don't remember that episode either, at least not off the top of my head. I'm not much of a tv-watcher and got more into the show during its last few seasons, and saw most of it in syndication. BTW, I looked at your site and it's cool. There's no "ok" or "not ok" with a site, and I'm a fairly new blogger too. And your lyrics to that tune are well-written! I can empathize..I've had my share of bad dates...

so being the italian purist that i am, i'm all for keeping the pizza sacred. BUT, if i'm someplace like...california, i would probably eat a white pizza with avocado, corn, etc...but pineapple seems sorta shady in general.

river selkie said...

pineapple, shady?!?! NAY. pineapple is a very sunny fruit. anti-shady, fersure.

see River Selkie, guess I'm not the one who's got something wrong with them. ;)

I'm sorry, pineapple (of the shady variety or otherwise) on some kinds of pizza is quite delicious. I love the contrast, for example, of the sweetness of pineapple with the sharp savouriness of chorizo. Or cherry tomatoes with feta cheese, that's another sweet/savoury combination which really works. But hey, wouldn't it be boring if we all liked the same things?

Avocados are a sore point. I adore avocados, but my stomach is violently allergic to them. Let's just say I'm glad you didn't send me any guacamole.
