Is fruit on pizza acceptable…?
This is a question that came up whilst I was watching one of the latest editions of “Carpool Karaoke” with James Cordon and Will Smith, the legendary Fresh Prince!
With a catchphrase of “Errr hell no!” Smith was asked by Cordon a number of questions, one of which was, “would you order pizza with extra Pineapple?!”
Cordon was expecting the response to be a big ol’ “Errr hell no!” but to his surprise, Smith was… “Hell… well wait a minute, that’s not so bad, I’m kind of liking the fruit option thing at the moment!”
This sparked a conversation in the office of whether fruit on your pizza is acceptable. Well what else do top London catering companies discuss?
The judgement was a split decision, however it was leaning to the idea of fruit – pineapple – on pizza being a no no!
Whilst we all agreed that cheese and pineapple together were all good, for example we like the classic cheese and pineapple stick, but to have the pineapple on a pizza was not really “the done thing.”
With this still on my mind, I came across the following superb idea, a Chopped Salad Pizza, a great healthy option!
For the chopped salad:
Cheese (Feta, Parmesan, or Mozzarella)
Parsley (or any other herbs)
Pizza crust, (a great option is a flatbread)
This couldn’t be easier…
- Salad – Chop all of your salad ingredients and toss with some dressing. Let it sit for a little time to marinade together in the dressing.
- Pizza – Bake your crust for about 5 – 7 minutes to get it crispy. If it needs more time, leave it for 10 minutes. Top with a light layer of tomato sauce and cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted.
- Assemble: Top the pizza with the salad, then cut and serve.
A healthy option with its own base!
Go on, tuck in and enjoy!
