6 Pizza Toppings That Are as Questionable as Pineapple

– Katie Czerwinski

Last week, the president of Iceland said that if he had the power to ban pineapple on pizza, he would. The question of whether pineapple belongs on pizza has sparked debate for many years, probably since someone first had the idea to add fruit to the iconic dish. In America, Hawaiian pizza sustains extreme reactions both from those who love pineapple as a topping and those who couldn’t imagine a worse addition to pizza. To settle the debate, there are, in fact, equally questionable toppings, as found throughout the rest of the world and some closer to home.

When canned tuna is added to pizza, it’s called “thunfisch” pizza and is usually found with peppers, onions, or olives.

Mayonnaise is a popular pizza topping in Japan, but in Georgia, it’s apparently a good idea to add peas to the mix.

Pineapple isn’t the only tropical fruit added to pizza – in Costa Rica, you can find coconut on pizza, typically paired with shrimp.

Most of us stick to dunking cookies in milk, but this brave soul has done the same with her pizza.

  1. These are some pretty surprising pizza toppings, especially the kangaroo one you mentioned. I do think that is one of the greatest things about pizza, though. It is such a customizable food that you can make to fit all of your food preferences depending on what you order. There are so many different types of pizza out there for everyone.
