Gordon Ramsey Weighs In On Pineapple On Pizza Debate
One of the hottest debates this year is a pertinent one: does pineapple belong on a pizza?
Recently the President of Iceland expressed an interest in passing a ban on pineapple as a pizza topping.
Some chefs have been known to deliberately shirk requests for pineapple on pizza orders. One woman found a $5 note attached to the box with the message: “Couldn't bring myself to put pineapple on it. That's gross. Sorry."
So, being that his restaurants have 16 Michelin stars between them, surely Gordon Ramsey’s opinion matters, right?
Well, it’s official: he’s not a fan.
His buckling response to a Twitter fan pleading the sweary chef to allow 'creativity and initiative' in pizza-making, was simply: "Pineapple does not go on top of pizza."
@GordonRamsay sir regarding pineapple on pizza, pizza originated from creativity and initiative, please don't confine pizza to strict rules— Carlo (@CarloDagostino) April 4, 2017

@amygils89 @joeynoelle @GameOverGreggy @GordonRamsay @thejohncarle Can't believe we're even having this argument. I'm Pro-Pineapple-Choice. What a woman/man does with their pizza is their own damn business!— Michael Cohen (@Arkwulf) April 4, 2017
Then the brands chimed in...
