Love it or hate it, pineapple on pizza is a combination created in Canada, according to the country’s prime minister.
The controversial pizza topping has been claimed by Justin Trudeau as originating in southwest Ontario, a province of Canada.
Trudeau made the statement – which could equally lose or gain him fans – on Twitter.
Iceland’s president recently said he was “fundamentally opposed” to the idea of pineapple on pizza.
It came days after Iceland’s president announced he was against the topping.
President Gudni Th. Johannesson recently spoke to students at a high school in the northern Icelandic town of Akureyri when they asked him the all-important and divisive question of whether pineapple belonged on pizza.
He said he was “fundamentally opposed” to the idea.
But whether or not it could actually be banned was out of the question, he later clarified.
“I like pineapples, just not on pizza. I do not have the power to make laws which forbid people to put pineapples on their pizza. I am glad that I do not hold such power”.
Both world leaders caused a stir on social media as others weighed in on the debate – which looks no closer to being settled.
One person even suggested Trudeau’s claim was tantamount to a declaration of war on Iceland.
