Bad things you can do to pizza

From Brad DeLong:

Ann Marie, staring at a line on a menu offering kung pao chicken pizza: "I think we can safely say that fusion cuisine has gone too far."

I think it's the combination of hoisin sauce, peanuts, and mozzarella cheese that is distressing...

My parents once took some friends of mine and me out for pizza while I was in college. A couple of my buddies wanted to order a "Hawaiian" pizza that had Canadian bacon and pineapple on it. My folks still refer to this as an unspeakable culinary depradation. I shudder to think what their reaction would be to the aforementioned kung pao chicken pizza. I'm feeling a bit queasy myself.

Pineapple, ham, and mozzarella cheese should never meet. That's just asking for trouble.

I agree. It's like matter and antimatter....

Proof that we should pay attention to Science Fiction writers: In "Bill the Galactic Hero" (Harry Harrison, 1965), Bill stops for a meal at Giuseppe Singhs Neo-Indian Curried Pizza restaurant. When I read this in the early 80's I thought - this could never happen. But, apparently, it almost has.
