While watering the houseplants the other day we got a surprise. The pineapple was starting to bear fruit.

Nice, I just ate a pineapple pizza. Mmm, bromeliads.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Wow, fantastic, Fred! :D

And I don't like pizza much myself, but a pineapple pizza... I won't say no to that! :chomp:

It's become a bit of a thing to hate on people who like pineapple on their pizzas. I always thought everyone loved pineapple on pizza, because why not? It's so delicious. Apparently a lot of people despise it. Of course, reading their vitriolic anti-pineapple pizza messages only made me hungry.

I love pizza- it's close to the perfect food. But I'm not particularly fond of pineapple. A little bit on pizza (with something like ham to offset the sickly sweetness) is okay, but there are much better choices for toppings, IMO.

Hmm, sickly sweet is not how I would describe my ideal pineapple. It's more sour or tart than anything. Sweet, sure, but it's gotta have a good sour flavor to complement its own sweetness and the salty ham. But yeah, I have come to accept the inferiority of the general population in regard to its consensus on pineapple topping.

The very best pizza has nothing but crushed tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. But that only works when all three are super fresh. There's a place an hour from here (in other words, the closest place to get pizza) that makes a great one with corned beef, cabbage, and horseradish.

Mostly, we make our own pizza. BBQ chicken is a good topping, if we've traded some milk or cheese for a chicken.

The original reason my wife had bought a fresh pineapple for a pizza. She loves to propagate anything that roots. Before the pineapple her goal was to get an avocado to overwinter. Now it’s a monster.

She made the pot too. No avocadoes expected but it would be a nice surprise. We’re happy with our baby Dole. :ssmile: Fred is the ham. :wink:

It can take 10 years or more before an avocado tree produces. Got to be patient with that one!

Amen to that! San Marzano tomatoes, Mozzarella di Bufala, and home-grown basil -- on a home-made crust, of course. Yum!

We make our own mozzarella from fresh raw goat milk (if it tastes different from buffalo moz, I can't tell). Otherwise, just the same.
