Making a pizza shouldn't be rocket science.


Of course, there are experimental spots playing around with what makes a "pizza" a pizza. Make it with naan bread? Sure, give it a go. Top it off with an entire cheeseburger? Fine, let's see what it tastes like.

These are not those. These are things that should in no way ever go onto a pizza.

Reddit user, u/swervetastic, wanted to know what you monsters were putting on your pies when they asked:

What would be the worst pizza topping?

When it comes to pizza toppings the world is literally your oyster, in that you could probably put oysters on a pizza and it would make sense.

So long as it was a seafood-themed pizza. It's when the toppings don't make any sense that you run into problems.

"True story: I used to own a pizza restaurant. Guy calls up one day and orders a special pizza. He wanted pizza sauce mixed with chocolate sauce as a base. Sausage and hamburger for toppings. No cheese. But he wanted sunflower seeds from the salad bar sprinkled on top. I told him no way until I had payment in hand. He came up there and we made it. That pizza stank so bad. Horrible. Absolutely rancid."

Wait For It...

"okra"

"Can't be that bad"

Don't Knock It Till You Try It?

"Tarantulas"

You can just smell some foods so powerfully they rattle your bones through your nose.

These are those foods.

You Can Smell This Suggestion

"Office microwaved tilapia"

"How did that even enter your twisted little mind?"

"You've clearly never worked in an office."

Seeping Out Through The Wrapper

"Assuming we're talking actual food, durian."

thebranimator

"A group of us are at my friends cottage on Lake Erie one fall. Yearly bad movie weekend. Food, drink, smoke..."

"Someone smells gas. Then someone else. So we start looking for the source, checking the tanks, the stove. And then it dawns on my friend, It was her. She ate one of the durian candies I brought. The smell of gas was coming from her."

"I bought some durian candy. I passed it out to the children in my life. Expand their horizons or some sh-t. I would sneak it into candy dishes. Most of my friends new what it was upon seeing it."

"My wife's sister travels for her job and bought chocolate covered durian for my wife and I as a joke. We could smell it through the chocolate and sealed box and wrapping paper. We each took a bite just to say we tried it, but it went right in the outside garbage can afterwards. Every single thing about it is disgusting."

Do They Cook It With The Pickles On?

"There's a shop in town that advertises "HOME OF THE PICKLE PIZZA". Probably not the absolute worst, but that sounds silly. Can't knock it till I try it, though"

Famixofpower

And then there's potential toppings like these, foods that shouldn't be anywhere near a pizza.

No, You Can Smell THIS Suggestion

"Surströmming"

RunJordyRun87

"According to the videos I've seen that would be super gross."

swervetastic

"I've had it before. When prepped correctly it's pretty good. Open it outside, under water, and pull the meat apart and add to a flatbread with toppings. An issue is that a lot of the imported stuff cooks in the can due to the summer heat and dissolves the meat, causing it to be extra foul."

DrGingeyy

Look It Up

"Haribo sugar free gummy bears"

G-B-A

"Most certainly the sh-ttiest toping"

Giklopson

And Our Winner Is...

"Pineapple, no contest."

TheBelhade

"It's because of people like you that I lived a lie for most of my life. Around friends and family I'd dutifully [munch] down those margaritas, pepperonis and mexicanas. I'd stomach stuffed crusts, deep dish, and anchovies. I even married a marinara-loving girl to reinforce the facade."

"But every Tuesday night when the wife was at her pilates class, I'd sneak across town to the shipyards, where, under a solitary flickering streetlight, Gord's Pizza Van served up individual slices of Hawaiian. It may have been sitting there most of the day under the heat lamps, it might have given me food poisoning on several occasions, but for those few short minutes each week, munching into those sweet, golden trapezoids, I actually felt alive."

"Finally, after my wife had been pressuring me to try for a child, I couldn't bare it any longer. So I mustered up my resolve, gathered my family about me and revealed to them the truth. My wife screamed and fainted, my mother burst into tears, and my father threw me out of the house and told me that he no longer had a son."

"I have a new life now, a new city, a new country. The weather in Toronto will be a challenge for me, a boy raised in sunnier [climates], for the rest of my life. And I know I have a long road ahead before I master the fine art of apologising. But it's a small price to pay to live among people who accept me, who love me, for who I truly am."

Seriously. Don't put pineapple on your pizza.

Live a true, better life.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:
