I was at a dinner with fellow writers when a contentious topic popped up: Fruit on pizza — yay or nay? A debate erupted between two esteemed food editors who fervently defended their opposing positions as though morals were at stake.
“No! Pizza is a sacred savory food and dampening it with wet pineapple is a sin,” one editor sternly stated.
“Blasphemy! Fruit and cheese are divine pairings,” the other retorted.
I listened with intrigue and made a mental note: “Fruity pizza” might as well join politics, religion and money as matters not to be discussed at the dinner table.
Then, I was invited into the debate just as it was heating up hotter than a brick oven.
“Brittany, what do you think?”
Admittedly, I was the least experienced food writer at the table. My initial response was to be like Switzerland and simply quote this adorable pizza-loving little one.
