While the president of the United States may be declaring war on the media, the president of Iceland is taking on one of the most controversial subjects there is: pineapple on pizza.

Asked his opinion on pineapple on pizza, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson said he was “fundamentally opposed” to the topping choice and then added he would pass a ban on pineapple as a pizza topping if he indeed had such a power.

Luckily for you pineapple-pizza-lovers in Iceland, Jóhannesson does not have that power. Your topping of choice is not going anywhere just yet.

We’re glad Jóhannesson has made his position clear such an important issue. Other than whether New York or Chicago style is better, there may be no more hot-button issue facing pizza-lovers than whether or not pineapple belongs on a pizza.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am not morally opposed to sweet pineapple on a pizza with some ham, but it is never going to be my first choice. I play this one straight down the party line, like the independent voter I am. Jóhannesson, on the other hand, seems to be an ideologue on this subject.
