What Ree Drummond Puts On Her Pizza Might Cause Controversy

Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond loves creating simple, homey meals that will take you back to the good old days. That's not to say that she doesn't have some pretty spicy opinions, though, especially when it comes to pizza toppings.

People have been debating the best (and worst) pizza toppings for ages now, but Drummond's favorite kind of pizza might surprise you. Her go-to toppings include an extremely divisive but fairly popular pizza topping and another common (but not necessarily well-liked) pizza topping that you may not think to pair with it. This combination may seem a little far-fetched, but if you ask Drummond, it's a must-try. The ingredients create a sweet and savory contrast that when paired with thick pizza sauce and warm crust, are sure to create the perfect slice. Not everyone loves these ingredients or will enjoy them together, but if you love them on one-topping pizzas, it might be time to combine them to take your pizza to new heights.

Ree Drummond's favorite pizza toppings

Ree Drummond made a video for her Facebook fans detailing how she makes pizza, and although she made eight different pizzas in the video, one stood out above the rest. This pizza's time in the limelight boils down to two toppings that Drummond included, neither of which are hits for all pizza-lovers.

Olives are some of the most popular pizza toppings around, but not everyone loves how salty they taste. Likewise, the debate about whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza has raged on for years, and pineapple is definitely a "love it or hate it" kind of topping. Combining the two together would seem like some kind of blasphemy — but that's exactly what Drummond did. Granted, she also included Canadian bacon on the pizza, but some of us would feel inclined to pick off over half of those pizza toppings. Still, if you love both the soft, warm sensation of pineapple pizza and the sharper flavor of olives, Drummond could provide you with your next pizza inspiration. The next time you order pizza, try olives and pineapple together — it's completely chef-approved.

Other Pioneer Woman pineapple pizza recipes

Ree Drummond loves her pineapple pizza so much that she doesn't just feature it in one recipe. The Pioneer Woman had shared a variety of pizza recipes throughout the years, and if you love pineapple, they're sure to whet your appetite.

Drummond has recipes for both jalapeño pineapple pizza and shrimp and pineapple flatbread pizza. These combinations might sound even more controversial than pineapple and olive pizza, especially if you're not one to eat much spice or can't imagine seafood on your pizza. Drummond can make a variety of flavors meld together well, though, and pineapple lovers will enjoy these recipes, especially if they're adventurous eaters. They're quick, too — the jalapeño and pineapple pizza takes 12 to 14 minutes to make, while the shrimp and pineapple flatbread takes 16 minutes from start to finish. Pineapple and olive pizza is just the beginning for Drummond — she has a variety of delicious pizza recipes just for people who love the controversial fruit on their pizza.
