Domino's Launches Pineapple And Canned Spaghetti Pizza

Some people have a complicated and messy relationship with pineapple pizza. While there are diners who enjoy the particular flavouring, others believe it's an absolute travesty and should never be allowed near pizza.

Well, Domino's in New Zealand is here to mix things up a bit by not only producing a pineapple pizza but also chucking some canned spaghetti on top for added effect.

*checks watch*

Sadly, it's not April Fools, this is an actual thing that Domino's is actually doing.

In a Facebook post, the company wrote: "This is no joke! We've officially added Hawaiian SPAGHETTI pizza to our menu for a limited time only, with help from our friends at Wattie's NZ."

Why, oh God why is this a thing.

It seems like the reaction is pretty split on the new addition, with one person saying: "You've listened to the people."

Another said: "Spaghetti on a pizza is actually really nice. Should do one with beef mince and cheese. Spaghetti Bolognese pizza."

A hater wrote: "This bad and you should feel bad."

It'll be interesting to see whether this takes off or whether it crashes and burns. In 1999, the pizza was voted the most favourited in Australia, making up a whopping 15 percent of sales, while a 2015 Just Eat survey found it to be the most readily available.

But that hasn't stopped chefs around the world from coming out in opposition to the creation.

In response to one Twitter fan begging the chef to allow 'creativity and initiative' in pizza-making, Gordon Ramsay crushed him by tweeting: "Pineapple does not go on top of pizza."

The president of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, also threw his name into the ring, saying pineapple pizza was an abomination.

On a visit to a high school in the town of Akureyri in North Iceland, Guðni revealed he would pass a ban on pineapple as a pizza topping if he lived in an autocratic fairy tale whereby he could pass laws on his own.

It was invented in 1962 by Greek-born Canadian. Sam Panopoulos - sparking debates among Italian pie lovers.

The restaurateur emigrated to Canada in 1954 at 20-years-old, opening several diners with his two brothers. In one of the restaurants he added tinned pineapple to a pizza, and thus the Hawaiian was born.

No one thought you could jazz up the humble pineapple pizza more but Domino's has done the unthinkable.
