Pizza is no place for a pineapple

Bridget, a misguided soul who likes pineapple on her pizza, informs us that October is National Pizza month.

Here's some favorite pizza toppings from around the world:
Some of the more popular international toppings in India are pickled ginger, minced mutton and "paneer," (a form of cottage cheese), which looks quite like tofu but is obviously a dairy product. Tandoori chicken and chicken "tikka" are also increasingly popular toppings in India. (Source: Shiv Sharan Singh, New Delhi, India)

Mayo Jaga (mayonnaise, potato and bacon), and, eel and squid are favorites in Japan.

Brazilians favor green peas on top of their pizzas.

In Russia, they serve pizza covered with "mockba," a combination of sardines, tuna, mackerel, salmon and onions. Red herring is also a topping of choice.

Costa Rica

I'll confess to liking anchovies--on or off pizza--but that's as far as I go. What's your favorite topping?
