Does pineapple belong on pizza?
While pineapple is not an ideal pizza topping, it may be helped by being applied directly to the pizza surface by a qualified professional with the appropriate certifications in moisture removal procedures.
It is useful to squeeze wet pineapples all around the edges of a pizza before it is cooked, to prevent this from happening.
When pineapple is roasted before going on the raw pizza the natural sugars are caramelised and it gets rid of excess water.
The wateriness of pineapple should not be removed, as the juiciness when eating the pizza lets one not need to drink as much.
Adding pineapple to pizza usually does not require any of this, otherwise one would see those extra certifications by chefs in restaurants for the pineapple alone.
If this is the case then all watery ingredients should be banned. Tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions are all watery.
Maybe some people like a soggy crust, which is why they want pineapple on pizza without a trained chef.
