“The food world is riddled with heated debates, and one of the most polarizing fights centers around pineapple on pizza.
This week Iceland`s President Guðni Th. Jóhannesson let us know where he stands.
After taking questions from students at a high school in North Iceland, one bold pupil asked Johannesson what he thought about pineapple as a pizza topping.
The president held nothing back expressing his disdain for the pairing. He also said if he had the power to pass laws, he`d ban it across the land.”
Nobody can find Iceland on a map, and nobody cares what transpires in the island nation, but when Iceland`s President (ceremonial post with no power) declared that he would ban pizza if he could pass laws, suddenly everybody was googling “Iceland” and “President Johannesson.”
I would trust a politician with the wisdom and discernment to ban pizza implicitly, Congress wouldn`t dare oppose any of his executive orders.
I love me some pizza, and it`s not unusual for me to devour an entire pizza by myself, in one sitting. But if a Philistine offers me a slice of pizza with pineapple, I will beat him to within an inch of his life.
Pizza with pineapple is a culinary abomination, and an affront to the Almighty. Period. End of story.
