I would try it.

I might even like it.

But, I would never consider it pizza!

No!

I guess I'm somewhat of a purist. If I want BBQ I'll have ribs not a "BBQ pizza".

If I want Asian I'll eat Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese etc.

An "Asian taco" is not on my menu.

You get the picture.

Having said that I do occasionally enjoy a "Hawaiian" pizza.

Maybe I'm too rigid/unimaginative/missing something?

coming from someone who has lived in Hawaii, you have to ASK for a Hawaiian pizza at most places, it's really a mainland invention.

If they offer a Hawaiian pizza, it's not pineapple, ham and cheese, it's kalua pork, Maui onion jam, hoisin sauce and green onion. Nothing like you would see in the CONUS.

Why not? Pizza comes in all shapes, sizes and flavors. What would you call it?

This is a dominoes original catering to their local clientele. Happens all over the world. Craziest one I have had, and a chicken tika masala pizza, in the UK. One of the best selling, and goes for abut 20 sterling. . . call it 35-40 bucks, US. They also offer a WORLD of dessert pizzas. Just because it has bananas or something different doesn't mean it's not a pizza.

Ok that sounds really good for a paninni or a pizza!

Guess your right. Very likely most of what we consider ethnic food has evolved from some original form as ingredients became globally available and different cultures have moved around the planet.

I should be more open to fusion cuisine.

I have a feeling I've been missing some pretty tasty treats!

i would try it once just to see. you never know.

but i'm with bea and j about it not being pizza. they should call it a focaccia with toppings. thin crust or thick as it may be.

but i'm anal about pizza being crust, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, maybe some herbs and grated parm and toppings. if you want ham, or pineapple, or bananas, or whatever you want, it goes on top of that.

everything else is toppings for bread, crostini, focaccia, pita, lavash, or ...
