    Unless it’s a fruit pizza…

    • Murray C May 17, 2017 / 2:08 pm

      Well, it’s beautiful to look at! A friend of mine made a pizza with jelly for the tomatoes, chopped nuts and chocolate that she rolled and sliced to look like pepperoni, and grated white chocolate for cheese. It was revolting. I think if the crust had been, say, short bread it would’ve been fine as a big cookie. But regular pizza dough? Bleah.

    The cat is right – no pineapple on pizza!! Fruit on pizza is blasphemy, perpetrators should be punished by whipping with extra-long breadsticks and forced to eat one pound of pepperoni.

      A pound of pepperoni? I know people who would not find that to be a punishment.

      • Smartypants May 17, 2017 / 12:52 pm

        Or the breadstick whipping either! πŸ˜€

    Eggplant and artichoke for me, please! And bell pepper and black olives. Maybe not all on the same slice, though.

      But but but… I was always taught that tomatoes are fruit. And you can’t have a real pizza without tomato sauce, right?

      Image loaded a few seconds before words, and I spent those VERY long few seconds trying to figure out why I suddenly felt guilty. Kitty would make either a good judge, or a good interrogator.

    My elderly Missy enjoys a good pizza from time to time too!

    • Birdcage May 17, 2017 / 12:31 pm

      Even Merlin enjoys a good pizza-sit!!!!

      • Ricky's Mom May 18, 2017 / 6:30 am

        Merlin is SO beautiful!

    That wallpaper takes me back.

    • Birdcage May 17, 2017 / 12:32 pm

      I think my parents had that wallpaper in their kitchen “back in the day”.

    I dislike any kind of pizza (well, taco or alfredo is ok). But if I have to eat pizza, I don’t want pineapple on it. I don’t like red sauce, so no spaghetti, pizza, lasagne, ketchup, or tomato soup. I like my tomatoes raw.

    I’m getting old, but I’m 3.14159265359 % sure that’s NOT a Little Caesars box .. LOL

      That took a second, but I’ve always been a bit half-baked when it comes to math.

      Pizza Pi?

      • allein 🐾 May 17, 2017 / 7:13 pm

        And in googling for those I learned there is a PiZZA-Pi restaurant in the Virgin Islands, which is accessible only by boat, a Pi 3.14 in Staten Island (zip code 10314), and (appropriately, I think) a place in Princeton, NJ, called Princeton Pi Pizza & Yogurt Cafe.

    Team Pineapple here! Who’s with me?!

      Here! I especially recommend, if your pizza place does it (Dominoes does) a pizza with BBQ sauce instead of tomato, ham or bacon, and pineapple. A true Hawaiian pizza. (Well, no. TRUE hawaiian would have spam.)

        • Duckie πŸ₯ May 17, 2017 / 5:19 pm

          I made a spam pizza for hubby once.
          He forbade me to make another one.
          Only time he’s EVER done that.
          I still soundlessly chuckle over the memory of his expression when I wake at three in the morning.

      All the way!! Love it with some kind of ham or canadian bacon or even pepperoni on my pizza.

      But then again I was always the strange one. I like liverwurst & provolone sandwiches on rye with a good smear of mustard. Peanut butter & cream cheese sandwiches. And the biggest sacrilege according to most people – GASP, ketchup on my mac n’ cheese.

      • Smartypants May 17, 2017 / 6:20 pm

        I grew up on peanut butter and bacon sandwiches – yum! Now once in a while I’ll make one with vegi bacon – just as tasty.

  9. kodalai May 17, 2017 / 1:49 pm

    If not made for sits, then why is it made of warms?

  10. birdlady26 May 17, 2017 / 7:19 pm

    Pineapple, walnut, gorgonzola cheese on an olive oil pizza crust. Yummy.

  11. Amyliz May 17, 2017 / 7:34 pm

    I’m pretty sure the kitty wanted the anchovie/tuna specialty pizza!

  12. dubravkamcvmd May 17, 2017 / 8:17 pm

    I find it disturbing that so many people like pineapple on their pizza. Pizza is Italian – ergo, no pineapple.

  13. Ricky's Mom May 18, 2017 / 6:33 am

    A. Cat is right. Pineapple does not belong on a pizza.
    B. Doug is right. That is not a Little Caesar’s box.
    C. I am right. Nothing that comes out of Little Caesar’s, Domino’s, Pizza Hut, or any other national chain restaurant has the right to be called pizza. Bleccch.
