Woman Places Order For Pineapple Pizza, Chef Understandably Has Other Ideas

It is a truth universally acknowledged that having pineapple on pizza is divisive as shit. Some people love it, others can't stand it.

This pizza-maker in America falls into the latter group.

The chef hates pineapple on pizza so much that when a woman rang up asking for the Hawaiian treat, they couldn't bring themselves to make it and instead gave her a $5 note in its place.

Alongside the fiver was a note that read, "Couldn't bring myself to put pineapple on it. That's gross. Sorry."

Risky? Ignorant? Or just an incredible display of conviction? This person's hatred of pineapple on pizza is so strong they're putting his career on the line. Taking the long, difficult road of respect over the shortcut of selling out. Regardless of your pizza tastes, you must admire that.

How about toppings, anyway? Let's go into that for a second, 'cause YouGov released data on British pizza opinions earlier today showing that the nation's favourite topping was not - as you might have guessed - pepperoni, but mushrooms.

Call me inexperienced or cossetted, but I don't think I've met more talking horses than people who buy pizza with mushrooms.

Pepperoni is still very highly ranked, though, with 56% of the country voting it their no.1. Mushrooms were favoured by 65%. 61% for ham.

"YouGov finds that whilst 84% of Brits say they like pizza, and a similar 82% like pineapple, only 53% say that they like pineapple on pizza," they said.


"In good news for the Hawaiian haters, more than four in ten Brits (41%) dislike pineapple on pizza.

"Of the toppings that the public want banned, pineapple only comes fifth.

"Top of the list is anchovies, which more than a third of people (35%) would ban if they could - far more than any other topping. Olives came in second at 20%, followed closely by tuna at 19%."
