Does pineapple belong on pizza?
In areas where pizza is considered a traditional food, such as Naples, New York, or Chicago, people (not just cultural elitists) might be less likely to accept novel toppings than somebody growing up without a strong pizza culture.
By the same measure, eating your pizza by
like they do in New York, would be an insult to the
uncut and non-folded
Italian origin of pizza. Yet it isn't considered to be.
It's hard to accept that anyone who has a strong pizza culture would not accept novel toppings when there are so many types of Italian pizzas to choose from. Pineapples on pizza just gets lost in and not thought about as different among these many options.
These cities, especially the more Italian areas within them, seem to display more novelty than outside of it. Compare
Little Italy Gourmet Pizza
in Little Italy, NYC to a suburban
menu to see the difference in variety.
