According to Ryan Reynolds the French put mayo on their fries.


I don't know about the French, but I've spent most of the last three months in the Netherlands, and (1) the Dutch consume massive quantities of French fries (who knew?), and (2) they consume them with massive quantities of mayonnaise. 
Mayo on fried potato is good, but not the apex of culinary delight. It has a time and place and serves admirably in those conditions. Peppered beef gravy and fries, beef-fat fried fat fries with malt vinegar, and mid-profile dusted veg-oil fries with salt... they all have a place in my hearteries.

Just reading that gave me a minor heart attack.

Chips with gravy is pretty much the norm here.

When my kid wants to start up a conversation with someone he doesn't know well, he asks them "Is a hot dog a sandwich?"

Those conversations go on for eight pages too.  ;)

holy shit all my social anxiety can be erased with one question give that kid a nobel or something <head spinning>

No cheese curds? #notrealpoutinewithoutcurds!  I love poutine, the US is getting a tiny bit better at it, I know a few places that sort of make, but nothing like what I had in Montreal. So good!

https://www.8satire.com/dinosaurs-got-extinct-liked-pineapple-pizza-new-study-claims/?fbclid=IwAR0WWhzPoZExGLAShEF8JFzFBkfbTlPdgrIdqT9RiovmujE0qO6nQN884QY

Quote
A new study claims that dinosaurs probably got extinct because they liked pineapple on their pizzas. This is suggested by a group of scientists by the University of Juan Perez in New Mexico, who came to this conclusion after analyzing several samples of dinosaurs. After studying the samples for several hours, they could obtain the composition of what those dinosaurs used to eat when they were alive. They analyzed it and realized that maybe that was the reason why they got extinct.

Obviously the article is satire, If dinosaurs were capable of putting pineapple on pizza I'm certain they would have become extinct much sooner.

Pizza is meant to have tomato sauce. Hearing about Tzatziki pizza, or Tikka Masala pizza, or even Alfredo pizza is nauseating.

I've been trying to find out whether white pizza (pizza bianca) is traditional or not. It's not easy. Every search I do just produces recipes.

It can be quite delicious, traditional or not.

Yes, I agree. But I'm pretty casual about my pizzas. I'll have any standard pizza toppings up to and including furry fish. I'm not a fan of other kinds of seafood though. And I can't eat fatty meats. If it's cooked long enough that the fat is no longer soft it's fine, but soft fat literally makes me gag.

Thats a really good question, It probably is traditional, Lombardi's sells them (the first pizzeria)

Also the clam pie which is close to pizza bianca.

I found this article that briefly discusses Pizza Bianca in Rome before going on about their own pies
https://www.pizzatoday.com/departments/in-the-kitchen/2009-august-pizza-bianco/

Quote
In Rome, the pizza bianca exemplifies Italy’s simple, exquisite cuisine with its dough brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and finished with fresh rosemary. Other versions see dough topped with garlic and olive oil, then dolloped with fragrant, beautiful Italian cheeses. Perhaps wood-roasted wild mushrooms share space with those cheeses, or fennel sausage or sautéed spinach.

I like a white pie (assuming its an actual pizza and not corporate sugar bread) I dont like the kind where they overload it with ricotta. I find that cheese to be overly bland and better suited to a lasagna with bolognese sauce.
