Does pineapple belong on pizza?
Pineapple, being a wet topping, makes pizza unpalatable when the taste and texture is messed up after the pizza gets soaked from its juices.
Pineapple releases water when cooked, the result of this can be a soggy crust.
Some people like that effect and gravitate to adding pineapples on their pizza just for that (as not everyone's tastes are the same).
This depends on the type of pineapple. Wet versions, like canned pineapple, will make a pizza soggy, but freeze-dried pineapple can actually wick away moisture.
Pineapple shouldn't be blamed for making a pizza wet, when other situations cause that to happen often too.
There are many pizza toppings that are way more unappetising than pineapple.
Many pizza ingredients such as wheat, are some of the
most common allergens
. Pineapple allergy is still much more
. It is hence much worse that so many people are made to get sick due to certain pizza ingredients.
