I like pineapple on pizza, particularly in the "Hawaiian" combination with ham. I grew up with South African chain pizza, and my impression moving to America was that US chain pizza had far more limited topping selections, and seemed to have more strictly adhered to traditions about what makes an acceptable topping. South Africa seemed to have less of an issue with just taking a full meal's worth of ingredients and dumping it on top of a crust. I kind of like that.

So I have no sense of wrongness about any ingredient on top of a pizza. I like pineapple on pizza. Interestingly I don't actually like plain pineapple or pineapple in most dishes. But on pizza I find the overly tart flavor is cooked out of it and the sweetness generally compliments the other flavors.
