Pineapple-topped pizzas leave the president of Iceland cold.
In fact, Gueni Th. Jóhannesson says if he could, he'd pass a law banning pineapple from being used as pizza topping in his country.
Jóhannesson made the saucy comments to a group of high school students in the town of Akureyri, according to Iceland magazine,
One of the students asked Jóhannesson his opinion on this cheesy topic and he didn't mince words, according to Visier, an Icelandic language news website.
The president told the student he was firmly opposed to pineapple on pizzas. He added, perhaps with a tongue in his cheek (not a pineapple), that it is only the fact that he's not allowed to pass laws that is keeping him from banning it entirely.
"I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad I do not hold such power. Presidents should not have unlimited power…I would not want to live in such a country. For pizzas, I recommend seafood."
He also clarified he doesn't hate pineapple all the time, just on pizza.
Jóhannesson's issues against pineapple gets sympathy from Giacomo Pizzigoni, who owns Ambrogio15 pizzeria in San Diego.
"I feel chefs should be free to experiment, but I think pineapple is a horrible topping for pizza," he told HuffPost by email. "It is extremely sweet, and what's worse is that it is served over tomato sauce. Red sauce does not go well with sweet ingredients.
For the record, pineapple-topped pizza originated not in Honolulu, but in London, Ontario, according to Atlas Obscura.
Back in 1962, restaurant owner Sam Panopoulos decided to mix ham with canned pineapple on his pie to see how it would taste.
"People said 'You are crazy to do this,'" Panopoulos told the website. To the surprise of many, it became a hit.
