Pineapple isn’t the exclusive fruit on pizza. Open your eyes and taste buds to pizza-filled world of possibilities, including figs, cherries, pears, and more.
Do you like fruit on pizza?
When pizza toppings come up in discussions, pineapple is often what divides a crowd of an otherwise friendly gathering.
I would like to point out that technically nearly every pizza in existence has fruit on it. In case you haven’t heard, tomatoes are indeed a fruit. Yes I know we differentiate between the fruits we mistakenly identify as vegetables, mostly their level of sweetness, and thus it is that sweetness which deters people from liking it as a pizza topping. But have you tried the hot honey trend drizzled on top of your pizza post-oven? If you like that you should give sweeter fruits a chance too.
Now I’m not just talking pineapple, although that it a very divisive subject alone, but all kinds of fruits. In addition to being on team pineapple, I have also enjoyed pizzas topped with cherries, mango, figs, peaches, strawberries, and even apricot.
As such, I decided to round up some other tasty pizza recipes that include fruit as one of their toppings. You may not be willing to change your stance on pineapple, but what about some of these? Here are 16n other options to consider:
