Does pineapple belong on pizza?
The sweetness of the pineapple is a bad fit for the general taste of the pizza.
According to the
, pizza is "a dish of Italian origin, consisting of a flat round base of dough baked with a topping of tomatoes and cheese, typically with added meat, fish, or vegetables". Pineapple is a fruit.
Eating pizza first and pineapple as dessert it will make the whole experience better.
The freshness of pineapple doesn't mix with hot tomato sauce and mozzarella.
All that pineapple do on a pizza is disturbing the harmony of all other savoury ingredients. It's such a spoilsport.
Taste is subjective not objective
The sweetness of the pineapple, when counterbalanced with the saltiness of ham, can be subjectively deemed a tasty combination
Assuming meat is also involved, the idea of combining meat and fruit - so, say, ham and pineapple - is in
no sense new
. And is also delicious.
The sweetness of the pineapple forms a beautiful contrast to the otherwise savory pizza.
As long as the ingredients are fresh and the pizza is well-made, there's no reason why the sweetness of the pineapple would be a bad fit for the general taste of pizza.
Adding pinapple makes the pizza more juicy.
Some people from the southern China prefer their food taste a bit sweet; sweetness make them a good appetite.
This does not make sense, as pizza is already has sweet components to it. The crust tastes sweet after a while, because
humans break starches into sugar
. To cut the acid of tomatoes,
sugar is added to tomato sauce
. Pineapple just adds onto the the sweet theme, so it is a good fit, not a bad one.
