Another Vote for Pepperoni

A pizza piled with pineapple isn’t pizza at all, says celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. It’s a “mistake” and “an Italian tragedy.” But Ramsay, who has expressed his disdain for the fruity topping in the past, sucked it up and tried a bite for charity recently.

Jóhannesson made the saucy comments to a group of high school students in the town of Akureyri, according to Iceland magazine,

One of the students asked Jóhannesson his opinion on this cheesy topic and he didn’t mince words, according to Visier, an Icelandic language news website. read more – http://bit.ly/2s2pB29
