Just to begin, the following is a non-inclusive list of things that do not belong on pizza: pineapple, chicken, american ham, american bacon, canadian bacon, barbecue sauce, barbecue chicken, barbecue pork, salmon, guacamole, salsa, jalapenos, "taco" or "chipotle"-anything, Spam, Velveeta, anything made by Kraft, bologna, anything made by Oscar Mayer, tofu, ginger, wasabi, "rooster sauce," nuoc mam, hoisin, Slim Jims, pork rinds, Ben & Jerry's, Cool Whip, M&Ms.
Just because it tastes good doesn't make it right. And it doesn't make it a pizza. You wouldn't mix romaine, parmesan, croutons, a crappy chemical-based vinaigrette and some dried-up stale chicken and call it a caesar salad, now would you!?
Now as for bagels...
Just because it tastes good, doesn't make it right? So, if you like it, you shouldn't eat it? That's ludicrous.
When I was in Rome last year, we had pizza with potatoes on it. It was excellent. We didn't order it, it was handed to us.
On Capri, pizza with fresh prawns was outstanding.
The first guy who put sausage on a pizza was probably treated as a heretic. Same with the first guy who put cheese on a hamburger.
Different foods just didn't suddenly appear on the scene. What we view as "the norm" today was probably pretty radical back then. if you like it, eat it. If you want to keep a closed mind, that's fine too. Just don't dictate to others what belongs and what doesn't. If you're going to think that way, just stick to Pizza Hut.
