    I'm probably going to regret asking this, but is a Hawaiian cheeseburger a cheeseburger with pineapple, la Hawaiian pizza? Because that sounds ... I think "interesting" is the appropriate euphemism.

    Probably.

    Generally speaking, hamburgers with pineapple on them also have teriyaki sauce.

    Becuase you do not put sweet and juicy fruit on a salty delicious pizza.

    Hawaiian Pizza isn't even Hawaiian: A hack up in Canada just dumped a can of processed pineapple into a pizza he was cooking one day, tossed in some ham, and then decided "hey, ham and pineapple, I'll call it Hawaiian."

    Why not? People put the different topping on pizza just about everything nowadays. I don't see the problem here.

    Good cooking is about mixing complementary flavors, textures, and aromas together and the sweet acidic, gritty chunkiness of pineapples doesn't mixe with the salty, savory, creaminess of melted mozzarella or the spiciness of a good pizza sauce. It clashes.

    Well, clearly it's good enough that people enjoy it.

    I know personally I like the sweet burst of the pineapple to counterbalance the rest of the pizza. Fresh pineapple is too strong for me, but on pizza? It's perfect. But, hey. More for me.

    Oh man I absolutely will just eat a whole pineapple I love the bite as it tries to eat my mouth but I eat it first.

    So what if the Hawaiian Pizza made in Canada. They making money off of it anyway. So I don't see your complaint about it.

    The sweetly acidic pineapple clashes with the sauce made from sweetly acidic tomatoes?

    If your pizza sauce is noticeably sweet, you've made a mistake long before you put the pineapple on top.

    Pizza sauce is supposed to be spicy. (Not "Hot." Lots of people don't know the difference between Spicy and Hot)

    Look, I have no problem with people having food opinions. I have a problem with people having those opinions and presenting them as objective fact. People can have different tastes, Rater. Just because you don't like it, that's fine. But your opinions are not the end-all of food critique.

    It's entirely subjective, and, frankly... just let people eat what they enjoy. As long as they aren't making you eat it, it should all be good.

    Hawaiian pizza has a very important purpose: people who plan university events feel obligated to include it in the flavors offered, but no one eats it, allowing impoverished university employees like myself to score a free meal in the middle of their 12-hour shift.

    I think you are not making a fundamental distinction between "what a pizza is supposed to be" and "the very specific and narrow set of pizza that Rater enjoys".

    ETA: If lots of people don't understand the difference between two words and use one word to mean another word, then the first word probably does mean the other word. That's the natural evolution of language. Word use isn't as important as being clearly understood.

    It's different when roughly half the population agrees with you and the thing you're saying is bad actually makes you nauseous to think about.

    Crustaceans aren't bugs. Unless, of course, by "literally" you mean "figuratively", in which case do you want to revisit that "hot/spicy" thing?

    Hamburger (angus beef specifically) with swiss cheese, three pineapple rings, teriyaki sauce, and three strips of maple bacon. That is the Hawaiian Burger.

    The acidic nature of the pineapple counteracts the base nature of the tomato sauce and meat on pizza, allowing for a better dining experience in my opinion.

    You are correct on this point and it is actually very important to recognize that Hawaiian pizza has nothing to do with Hawaii (and pineapple has nothing to do with Hawaii either!)

    And this matters because?
    It matters because Hawaiian pizza and pineapple associations with Hawaii in general related to topics that are not board safe, but are vitally important in the real world. That's as far as I can say though.

    I don't know what makes the person above think pizza's have to be spicy, and um... crustaceans are DEFINITELY insects. A lobster is just a very large bug.

    Crustaceans are arthropods. Insects are arthropods. Crustaceans are not insects.

    Crustaceans have ten legs, whereas insects only have six (and arachnids eight)

    Would you say a woodlice is an insect?

    This is like the crab and lobster thing: Lots of people think it's good even though they're eating giant bugs.
    What's wrong with eating bugs and insects?

    Academically or colloquially?

    Academically, I would google "Woodlice", look at the description which classifies them as a crustacean, which I know to be a different classification than an insect, and say no.

    Colloquially, I would look at a picture of one, say "probably," then look at a picture of a lobster or crab and say "but those ain't."

    Take whichever answer you prefer, really.

    Great question! Absolutely nothing. And if they had more meat on them, it would probably be more common.
