Pineapple on pizza?

Surely, the denizens of The Lounge have an opinion on this.

Why in God's name would you destroy a perfectly good pizza by putting fruit on it?

If there's a table full of options and I have a classic "fall-back" pepperoni/sausage slice available as a "rinse" - I'll do a pineapple one (hey, it's my daily intake of fruit!).

Pizza Hut here offers their Hawaiian pizza which is very good. This is their description:

"What's better than your standard Hawaiian pizza? How about a Hawaiian pizza with tasty chicken, ham, pineapple and flavorful green bell peppers on it as well."

Also, a locally-owned pizzaria here has a chicken BBQ pizza that's delicious and a sprinkle of pineapple would be a nice addition.

I've tried it and didn't care for it along with other variants. I love plain cheese with pepperoni from our local restaurant...a family owned business with 4 restaurants. Went to college in the New Haven area and Sally's and Pepe's is still the best.

It's still Canadian bacon and pineapple, but the Canadian bacon is sliced thin like pepperoni, maybe a smidge thicker. They use a combo of regular pizza sauce and barbecue sauce. The Canadian bacon gets nice and toasty, not chewy like most places that use the thicker slices. The sauce combo is brilliant, too.

I was talking to someone about something on pizza I grew up with, linguica.

I grew up in SE Mass, and with the high population of Portuguese Americans you could get that type of pizza almost anywhere.

I recall it being better than pepperoni. It is expensive to get it here.

A pork product (ham, Canadian bacon, or just bacon) and pineapple made for a tasty combination on pizza.

When I lived in NY, if you asked for pineapple on a pizza, the Italian cook would look at you like you just defiled his family! Thank goodness they're not so uptight about it in SC, but then, the pizza down here is often sadly lacking.

Uncle Mikey's in Murrells Inlet does have a good pie, and they will do ham and pineapple.

(Cheese is bad for me--heart issues)

I was told by a nutritional expert that heated pineapple and melted cheese together release some evil enzymes that humans don't break down well.

Not only hat, why mess up some perfectly good pineapple?
