Hawaiian Pizza Gone Wild @ The Good Son!

Now, I don’t mind pineapple on pizza, especially when you funk it up with jalapenos or spam and pineapple. But here at The Good Son, this funky joint on Queen West, they’re kicking it up another notch — this is the Mauna Loa, bro-a!!!

OK, now let’s break it down. You’ve got these great big chunks of smoked pork cheek, some roasted pineapple, rapini and teeny-weeny pieces of scotch bonnet peppers, which really give this thing a decent kick. You may not be able to see ’em, but you can definitely feel the burn, bro!!!

Now, there aren’t a whole lotta brews to choose from here — and it’s mostly big names like Sol, Heineken and Guinness. But they do have Lagunitas IPA on tap, so I can’t really complain about that!

Pineapple on a pizza? Don’t mind if I do…

Now, I’ve never understood the hatred for Hawaiian pizza. OK, so it might be kinda weird to put fruit on a pizza pie…but how else am I gonna get six servings of fruit a day, bro???

So, we’re hanging out at General Assembly Pizza, this funky little joint where they don’t just put pineapple on a pizza–they pair it with jalapenos and double smoked bacon. This is the Porky Pine:

OK, now let’s break it down. You’re got the crispness of the bacon, a little sweetness from the pineapple, some great big globs of ricotta cheese, along with aged mozzarella…but it’s the jalapenos that really kick it up a notch. This ‘za is super-spicy, bro! I pretty much had to chug seven tallboys just to beat the heat!!! But when their tallboys of Mascot Pilsner are only seven bucks, I just mighta chugged seven tallboys anyways.
