    Ordering a pizza with pineapple on it removes all credibility of your judgements in my opinion. Why any grown adult would choose to pay money for that abomination is beyond my comprehension. Also if you are going to rate pizzas the benchmark should be plain cheese, judging them on crust, sauce and cheese. Toppings are great, but cheese, crust and sauce are the base for every pie that will come out of a kitchen. If a cheese pizza comes out of the kitchen and it is disappointing, everything else that comes out is sure to follow suit.
