Two of your favorite TV chefs are duking it out over pizza.
After the hot debate about putting pineapple on pizza set Twitter ablaze last month, Gordon Ramsay decided to finally weigh in. During an appearance on The Nightly Show, he told the audience "you don't put f*cking pineapple on pizza!"
The colorful declaration made headlines for obvious reasons: One of the industry's most notable leaders had seemingly settled the age-old debate of whether Hawaiian style pizza is a beautiful masterpiece or a horrible tragedy. (We have to agree with Ramsay that it's definitely the latter.)
This, of course, only sparked the debate to grow even more, with brands like DiGiorno tossing in their two cents.
But now Alton Brown — the lovable Good Eats know-it-all and Cutthroat Kitchen host — has stuck his iron in the fire, clapping back to a tweet from People.com that claimed Ramsay had officially ended the argument.
"If I want pineapple on my pizza, I'll by God have it," he wrote. Whoa. Damn. Okay, Alton, no one is messing with your favorite tropical fruit.
Unsurprisingly, the new flood of responses to both chefs' controversial statements have been pretty wild.
Meanwhile, Ramsay maintains that this isn't really a battle. "It's not a war ... it's the truth," he wrote on Twitter. But when two big wigs are in direct opposition of one another — and each feel so passionately about their opinion — you can't help but assume they're low-key fighting.
At least this isn't nearly as bad as dipping slices of 'pizza in milk. That *still* makes us shudder.
