...And I decided to go with an extra topping of pineapple. If you're uncomfortable with that, you can do what I can only describe as "ONE!"

Enjoy your pizza!
You can have and enjoy whatever you like on or in your pizza.
I am not eating it and your choice has no influence on me.

'Wrong' on a pizza could only be 'wrong' if it caused ill to others.

This is unlikely though not impossible.

It's probably better than cold donkey jizz. Or warm, for that matter.

I made myself a pizza today; I don't remember the last time I ordered pizza.  My pizza was topped with spinach.  ;D

I've never made a pizza.
I think I last ate  a 'pizza' at a 'Pizza Hut' in Bloomsbury after a brief visit to one of the UCLH sites.

Place was full of thinly-disguised patients and food did not aspire to mere mediocrity.

I make pizza at home (most Friday evenings if we're not out and about). Make some dough, use the proving time as an excuse for a couple of beers, and then randomize some toppings. Spinach and egg is a classic, of course. Last week I did potato. Some people, including the woman I married, didn't believe potato pizza was an actual thing, even less likely the most awesome pizza.

Anyway, slice your potato really thin (a mandolin if you're not a knife demon, slices should be a millimetre-ish, too thin and they'll burn though). Make the base, brush with olive oil, cover with your potato slices. I like to warm up some sprigs of rosemary in olive oil and cut garlic clove (discard it and the rosemary, you just want the flavoured oil) and drizzle that liberally over the top. Add a few sprinkles of rosemary and a generous sprinkle of sea salt. Don't be a wuss, it needs the oil and salt, like you're making focaccia. Then tear up some mozzarella and distribute. I like to add some halved and pitted olives too. Don't overdo it, the potato needs to crisp which it won't do if you bury it. Shove it in the hottest oven you can manage and serve once the potato is crisp and browned. It's like if Italians were preparing chip butties for a banquet of angels.

The only downside is that you can't make proper pizza at home, you need the fearsome vulcanism of a proper oven to char the base and cook it fast. I learned the pizza con patate at a little place in Narragansett Bay, they had an oven the temperature of a sunny day on Mercury.

Pizza is best with pineapple. It stops everyone pinching it. I like sweetcorn, onion and pineapple, with spinach if it is 4 toppings.  :)

Guilty secret. Pepperoni & pineapple.

Ham, pineapple and the hottest chillies I can find. Mmm. Sweetcorn, on the other hand, has no place at all on a pizza.

Indeed, sweetcorn, eek. Pineapple is fine.

Meat feast type but with no chicken and extra chillies.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Fried egg and spinach is a classic pizza.

Not 100% correct, for an authentic Fiorentina, the egg is cooked on the pizza base, not fried then put on the pizza.

I can't remember where I heard about, cos I certainly haven't eaten it, (probably it was something someone posted here) but I remember talk of a pizza with strawberries. So why not a fruity pizza with strawberries, pineapple, raspberries, mango, bananananana, etc and so on? And an egg.  :thumbsup: :sick:

Nah, it's just a fried egg sandwich. The egg should have a gooey yolk though, and if you want to big it up, add some pancetta (or bacon if you're not middle-class enough to shop in Waitrose and take regular baths). Let's begin to establish our fundamental pizza commandments.

Thou shalt not top your pizza with:

- sweetcorn
- haggis and/or doner kebab
- donkey jizz (for that matter, any kind)
- fruit that isn't pineapple

Botanically, tomatoes, capsicums and chillies are fruit.

Are they 'wrong' on pizza too?

Doesn't a traditional Quattro Stagioni have an egg in the centre to represent the sun? I'm sure I one like that in Italy.
