did the ancestors call pineapples pineapples because they look like a fusion of pine cones and apples?


Bah-Fong-Gool

Deep dish pizza isn't authentic in the least and is more of a casserole than any Italian cuisine known. It was invented by the guy who founded Pizzeria Uno in Chicago. ...disgrazia...


PapaFranzBoas

UNO is the worse anyways. It’s all about Lou Malnati’s.


Holiday-Term-4085

Lou's is where people of class and distinction go for their pizza

“It's a cornbread biscuit which you've melted cheese on and then, in defiance of God and man and all things holy, you poured uncooked marinara sauce atop the cheese. Atop! The cheese on top, the sauce naked, cold, on display like some sort of sauce whore.” — *Jon Stewart*


nhyoo

So i never tried it and I assumed it was you know sauce and then a lot of cheese, then a week ago ( had deep dish pizza and was astonished why the fuck it was backwards and why the dough felt all hard and weird, now this description really does it justice. It's not pizza, it's a saucy whore.


sabotabo

an insult to deep dish is an insult to me, now put em up


ges13

If you got a problem with Deep Dish you got a problem with me and I suggest you let that one marinate.


MadAzza

Mmm, marinate it in teriyaki!

cummy_balloon

All_Admins_Are_Cunts

That would explain why it's so popular here in Canada


rj4001

Well I guess that explains the Canadian bacon! Though I guess it's mostly been replaced by ham at this point, particularly in the US.


MightyMoosePoop

*something something cultural appropriation something something* side note: tomatoes are from the Americas so were the Italians also culturally appropriating. *something something...*


nolan1971

Tomatoes came to Italy from Peru in the 1770's. What we call Pizza today came about in the 1810's (maybe slightly earlier, but not before the introduction of the tomato). Before that, flatbread dishes were popular going back over a thousand years.


RadiantMenderbug

Fun fact! Pizza comes from the word Pita!


AnderBloodraven

If we want to use literature to date it something akin to pizza was shown in the Aeneid, it was more like the facci I veccia (flatbread cooked with oregano oil salt and rosemary) than modern pizza, but it is there

ItxHunter-

ye we usually joke on this _even if some of us really hate pineapple on pizza_


Pastalini13

I mean pineapple on pizza is just gross though. It's not offensive other than the fact that it shouldn't happen.


RoustFool

Here in Naples it's illegal to put pineapple on pizza. Perhaps not all Italians find it insulting, but I have met several Neapolitans who do.


DerpCaster

*I have met several Napoleons who do*


RoustFool

True rebels, although I should have explained it is only illegal to serve non-traditional pizza in the city centre and only commercially.

MyDearBrotherNumpsay

100% Entire threads are an indignant overreaction to opinions held by *very* few people.


Nam_Nam9

And sometimes those threads are just an excuse for people to be slightly more open about their bigotry


altiuscitiusfortius

22% of Americans have Twitter and 97% of tweets are made by 5% of users so basically Twitter is 500 people arguing with each other trying to be as crazy as possible to go viral, and then the media picks it up because it's an easy way to write a story and treat it like a representative sample, and they can say "lots of people are saying that..." and then ma and pa Smith see the story on their Facebook news feed and think that's what really happening in the world. It's sad.


DamienChazellesPiano

By your numbers that would mean 97% of tweets are made by 3 million Americans but close.

As an Italian, what is your opinion on putting bacon bits and pepperoni on pizza?


Cana05

Pepperoni is the american name for spicy sausages? It is typical in italy to put those. Bacon slices are perfect too. 16 yo italian here. Pinapple on pizza feels just wrong


TalionTheShadow

Certified Dane here. Sailing anywhere not using a longboat is just wrong!!! You can say that pineapple is bad on Pizza, not gonna stop anyone who likes it from doing it. I don't like it though.


jexabelle

I really like pineapple. I'll eat it plain or as a juice and when I was a kid, loved eating ham and pineapple pizza. Nowadays, I don't mind it but I know there are better choices.


AwesomeFly96

Wait until you hear about the "super kebab special" we have here in Sweden!


zeth0s

I am italian, kebab on pizza is great, no further comment


theodb

Pepperoni is a mildly spicy American salami.


willowbeef

At long last we can lay this matter to rest!


DickMensa

Americans who are from Italian blood think the weirdest and dumbest shit about Italians. Just because your grandma didn't make your grandpa pull out doesn't mean you know how Italian food should be made us bunch of wannabes.


PapaFranzBoas

Sounds like my (ex) stepmoms family. Italian surname. But they immigrated 5-6 generations back. They always talked about how they were Italian and can cook. They were all terrible cooks. And to boot, none of them made anything remotely Italian or Italian-American other than pasta with a jar of Ragu sauce.


Bah-Fong-Gool

The worst are the ones who make their whole identity about being of Italian descent, and there is a trace of racial superiority in all that. Which is odd, because when my dad came here on a boat, he was considered sub human. Now Italians who have a modicum of success shit upon all the other immigrants, like mierda mia, mierda bona.


DickMensa

My family does this, and we are not even Italian..... They get pissed when I remind them of that. We passed through Italy when we immigrated.... So for some of them that's enough.


Bah-Fong-Gool

As my Nonno used to say... everyone around the Mediterranean used to be Italian at one point or another.

CommonRedditorRees

The worse part is: > "white redditor" Like... The fuck does race have to do with anything here? I have seen countless people of all ages, race and sex make the "pineapple bad" comment. In terms of a community, the fact its as upvoted as it is shows how braindead people are. Really big fascination on race on the platform with a big need to validates ones one sex/gender for a anonymous platform. Social media is a thriving normalized cancer.


bigger__boot

Also implying italians aren’t white ...?


Eslivae

My Italian friend punched me in outrage when I broke my spaghettis in two to fit my pan, this is actually the kind of stuff they take pretty seriously


luca01d

If you break the spaghetti why even take spaghetti instead of other type of pasta that are shorter


_WarmWoolenMittens_

my parents broke the spaghetti in half so it's easier for us kids to eat it. it stuck all through the years. first time I cooked spaghetti for someone outside my family, they freaked that I broke the spaghetti in half. I didn't understand the problem lol.


Bundesclown

That's because there is no problem. Eat your pasta however the hell you want. Food gatekeepers are pathetic.


LgDietCoke

What is the problem? Does spaghetti lose something in the bonding when broken? Or is just everyone agreeing not to break it because other people said it’s wrong? What if my spaghetti of twice as long as yours and I break it in half?


TheNoxx

Because they want the shape of spaghetti, but not foot-long noodles on the plate. Breaking it is fine. I'm a chef and I've made metric tons of pasta by hand, from chitarra to papardelle to tagliolini to agnolotti to sacchetti. Using whatever length you want for pastas like spaghetti is completely fine, despite whatever Reddit comments tell you.


WarKnight2206

Phantafan

Honestly, why is food taken so fucking seriously? I'm German and i couldn't care less if someone wants to put chocolate on his Schnitzel.


qxxxr

Short answer: dumbasses who can't compartmentalize see it as an insult to their (grand)mother's cooking. Scales up depending how nationalistic they are.


Alv489

As long as we all agree taco bell is barely food, let alone Mexican food, we'll all get along well.


oilpit

I agree with both of these statements and would just like to clarify these statements can be true, but Taco Bell is still objectively amazing.

I wish Mussolini got captured by the allies could have tortured him by slowly breaking pieces of spaghetti in front of him and throwing chunks of pineapple at him

Sonnie_

Never break the spaghetti!!!!


Primal_guy

Then fucking cook it until you can fit it all, what kind of fucking maniac breaks spaghetti? Take this from a non-Italian


Punk_in_drublik

Lol I like the shape and it cooks faster.


PM_Spez_YOUR_POOPS

I do it for a bil who loves spaghetti but he has cp and it's just way less of an ordeal for him, it's how his mom used to make it for him, so I will too. He can scoop and stab and feed himself with utensils, but twirling pasta onto a fork isn't happening without assistance, which he doesn't want. What he loves specifically is baked spaghetti, I'm sure I get a black flag just for that, but the cheese physically helps alleviate how useless the smaller noodles are at delivering sauce, so I don't really mind at all. It feels a bit more like a casserole then spaghetti, but it's not a deal breaker for me, I enjoy it well enough too. Three pieces btw. I break it into three pieces. I regret nothing.


FjotraTheGodless

Breaking spaghetti is a sin tho


Jmeyers08

I lived in Sicily for a year, and was dating a Sicilian. Breaking spaghetti is fine. Using jarred sauce is not.

EnderF5027

As Italian, I say that you can do whatever you want, but please, don’t order pizza with pineapple or banana here in Italy.


TestaOnFire

Ok here the deal. What you say is not totally correct yet not totally false. BUT, no actual italian would be happy of someone who split on something that in Italy is seen as an image of the country. We take pride in out food and cousine. If you ask an italian if he consider cooking a form of art, he will say 99% yes.


Fuzz_Vegas

I saw some French eating pasta with tomato souce poured on top (from the fridge) I witnessed a Japanese putting pasta, eggs and bacon in water thinking he was making carbonara… We have plenty of things that are wrong and doesn’t work as the should, but food is not one of that things. I’m totally in that 99%


Za_Gato

Yeah, ketchup pasta exists. I rather eat pasta raw or just cooked without sauce than that thing again.


Starbuck1992

Tomato sauce put like that isn't ideal, but it won't taste badly. There are worse things, like fucking ketchup on pasta...


Vinniam

But is pizza all'ananas really that much wierder than say tonno e cipola or gorgonzola e pere? I fail to see how pineapple in particular is heretical. Might be a bit too acidic, but then you just make it a pizza bianca.


Ragingbull444

It doesn’t matter where you are, cooking itself everywhere is an art form. What you make as long as you’re happy with it is a masterpiece that you or/and others get to enjoy


Malabrace

I am Italian and I tried it. I would have enjoyed more the pizza without the pineapple, but it's not that monster everyone freaks about. 5/10 would eat if offered but I wouldn't order it myself


Tobyghisa

Yeah people think it’s revolting when it’s just… mediocre? There are plenty better condiments but everyone gets stuck on pineapple for some reason.

Wingo21

Actually the original pizza wasn't at all that random. The ingredients all represented the color of the flag (tomato for red, mozzarella for white and basil for green) and was called "Margherita" to honour the current queen, Margherita di Savoia. Yes you can pretty much put anything on a pizza and it probably works but it's far from random That said, don't put pineapple, please Love An Italian

My old teacher used to say that pizza was a great meal for the poor, since all you need is basic stuff that most households would have like flour, water, salt, some meat and vegetables, but it's a meal for the whole family at the same time, si yeah, put whatever you got on the pizza, or nowadays, whatever you like.
