Pizza Toppings that Make Friends and Enemies

By: Jolene Haley

People disappoint—pizza is eternal. I’m pretty certain I want that on my gravestone and I think that most of my fellow authors in A Pizza My Heart pizzathology would agree.
We got together over a year ago, all fifteen of us, and we wrote pizza stories. Stories about love, loss, murder, outer space, urban legends, secret passwords, and more. We wrote happy moments, sad moments, and saucy things that you’ll probably like if you like sauce of any kind.
One of the most important things about pizza are the toppings and of course, the crust. So a few of my team members wanted to weigh in on what toppings are good and evil. See if you agree!

Question: What are your favorite pizza toppings? What toppings are great? Which toppings
aren’t? And which toppings make enemies?

The more, the better. And I don't think you can go wrong with meat toppings: hamburger, pepperoni, and of course BACON! Mmmm, bacon. But just like my metaphors, I don't like to mix my meats. And I don't go for too many veggie toppings because I don't want my pizza to be a salad, ya know? Also, I think fruit toppings (I'm talking to YOU, pineapple!) are not only icky, they are actually committing a crime against pizza.
Mushrooms and pineapple are the enemies, veggies are frenemies, and any kind of meat is the best part of any pizza. (Seriously though, why would you put pineapple on a pizza?)

Pineapple! That's the most magical pizza topping, and my close friend and I most love it added with spinach, onions, mushrooms, bacon, and white sauce—but another friend refuses to touch it when mushrooms are involved.

Easy: artichoke hearts, black olives, spinach, pineapple, and bacon crumbles. And maybe tatter tots.

Call me simple but all I need on my pizza is a thick crust and some magnificent cheese. Twenty extra credit points if I get to feed it to Fox Mulder.
