We Tried The Banana Pizza That's Freaking People Out

"This should replace Hawaiian pizza."

Posted on

This week, people rediscovered that Swedish people put banana on their pizza.

The country's pizza opinions have been discussed before, but have resurfaced again thanks to a renewed debate over pineapple on pizza.

People got super angry over the idea of banana pizza.

PINEAPPLE DOES NOT GO ON PIZZA AND NEITHER DOES FUCKING BANANA https://t.co/92u8QA1xWt

Some people thought it was a worse idea than pineapple.

Y'all munchin on this banana pizza?? 😷 This is worse than the pineapples

Others kind of wanted to try it.

Bananas on pizza looks kinda good I can't lie

So we decided to give it a go.

Surprisingly there are several recipes online for banana pizza. According to the one we used, it is usually accompanied with a curry sauce and ham. Kind of like a Hawaiian pizza.

The pizza was assembled. We added peanuts because this seemed to be a common ingredient in other recipes.

And baked a ham, banana, peanut, and curry powder pizza.

The pizza was brought into the office for a taste test with my colleagues.

So what's the verdict?

BuzzFeed

Rachael: "It's not awful, it's not the worst pizza I ever had. I feel like it's really similar to a Hawaiian pizza. I'm not going to sing its praises and put it on pizza menus, but it's fine."

BuzzFeed

Paul: "No, no, everything about that pizza is delicious apart from the banana. It's not similar at all to Hawaiian. This is like someone forced a smoothie on a pizza. Pineapple is a delicious treat and this is just banana that's up in your business for no reason."

Hattie (left): "No. Curry on pizza could work. But banana on savory pizza, no."

BuzzFeed

Luke: "That's okay. It's well balanced flavors. I can taste the curry. It works. I've had worse. I'd replace all pineapple on pizza with banana. Hawaiian pizza is now Swedish pizza. This is the future. But I also think the nuts are wrong."

BuzzFeed

Remee: "That's fucking disgusting. That's not good. The nuts disturb me more than the banana. The texture is bad. Say no to banana on pizza."

BuzzFeed

So what have we learnt?

- Banana on pizza may not be that bad and could be a viable replacement for pineapple.

- A worse thing could be peanuts on pizza.

- Generally, like its popular cousin the Hawaiian pizza, the banana pizza is a crowd divider.
