He’s fucking English, for cryin’ out loud. He has about as much business talking about pizza as an Italian chef has talking about spotted dick.
Oh yeah, what prompted this rant? Gordon fucking Ramsay said pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza. Say wha? Dude. If a pizza has an acceptably bready or toasty crust (depending on its thickness), a nice tangy sauce, and a nice smooth cheese, pretty much anything works on pizza. Fuck, I can even make Spam work on pizza — if I add pineapple to offset the salty taste, that is. Pizza is, like, the world’s perfect melting pot food. Hell, I even made goddamn brussel sprouts work on pizza once. It took some doing to come up with something to offset that taste, but some ‘shrooms, onions, bell pepper, black olive, and just a hint of red pepper and parmesan? Not my favorite, but it worked.
Pineapple, Canadian Bacon, and habanero. Put those three things together on a pizza, and your mouth be down partay-ing, I guar-an-tee. My personal favorite is pepperoni and jalapeno, but dude? That pineapple, Canadian bacon, and habanero pizza? That one goes down quick too. Just sayin’.
