I am never one to shame people for their pizza toppings choices, as I will happily eat pineapple on my pizza. Yeah! I said it! But you can really put anything on pizza, and some peoples' topping choices really surprise me. Case in point: Chef Jamie Oliver recently shared a recipe for a pizza topped with...grapes. And people were not sure how to feel about it!
Jamie shared the recipe as part of his Keep Cooking Family Favourites on the U.K.'s Channel 4. He calls it his "favourite speedy sausage pizza" and, at first glance, it certainly seems delicious! The ingredients include veggie sausage (okay sure!), red onion (great!), sun-dried tomato paste (um, alright!), and then seedless red grapes. That's where he lost people just a little!
Of course, he's not the first person to ever put grapes on pizza, but for those who don't usually stray past plain cheese, this could be a little shocking! After sharing the recipe, he shared a poll asking if people were down with grapes on pizza. A whopping 65 percent were not down, while another approximately 17 percent were at least curious, and about 17 percent more were in for trying it!
The replies to the tweet were also pretty mixed, with many noting it would depend on what type of cheese they were using or offering additions that might complement the fruit, like honey or walnuts. Still, some said that grapes with pizza should only come in the form of wine (I happen to agree with you there!!).
Jokes aside, if putting grapes on pizza brings you bliss in this world, I say do it, Jamie! It's certainly not the strangest food combo out there and even if it was? Rock on!
