Others argue pineapple totally works, it's just a matter of preparing the pizza properly:

"A properly prepared pineapple and ham pizza, a.k.a Hawaiian pizza, can be totally delightful. The tangy fruit gets super juicy when it's warmed up and is a lovely sweet foil to salty cured ham."

The main complaint against pineapple on pizza is that there's too much moisture, it makes the pie too soggy, the topping is too sweet, and there is no pineapple in Italy. Enough with this sacrilege, show some goddamn respect!! 🍍🍕🚫

Have you ever eaten pineapple and ham? Both are delicious. Then add bread, which is also delicious. Where's the downside here? From Girl Slice: 🍍🍕❤️️

"Pineapple combines sweetness with a little sour zestiness, making it perfect for pizza. Put it on a pizza without any meat, and the bubbly cheesiness wraps around the little chunks of pineapple like a wonderful tiki appetizer. Add thinly sliced ham and then you have a little salty burst of flavor, before the sweetness of the pineapple and the hot, tomato-y sauce coats your mouth. DOESN'T THAT SOUND DELICIOUS?!?"
