    We Tried The Banana Pizza That's Freaking People Out

    "This should replace Hawaiian pizza."

    by ,

    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.

    (This recipe omits ham for smoked cheese.)

    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.
