During a segment on his late night talk show, the Live! host declared: "Pineapples do not belong on pizza. I don’t care where you're from. Any pizza that tastes better with pineapple wasn’t a good pizza. It's not even a pizza it's like a pizza colada."

According to the Silicon Valley costars, the thought of pineapple on their pizza has been a bit of a misunderstanding. "As a kid I didn't get it, now I fully understand. What a treat. What a treat pineapple is," Middleditch has said, while Miller adds: "It's sweetness on a pizza. As an adult I don't get it but I still eat it. As a child I understood it, but I wanted to stay away from it. I thought anything with ham on it looked gross."

“I don’t want people saying what should or should not be on a pizza,” the chef told PEOPLE in response to Ramsay's declaration. “You put anything on a pizza you damn well feel like." But when it comes to what he likes himself, he says: “I happen to be a classicist when it comes to pizza. I like very little stuff. I want some salty meat product, and a bunch of cheese, and maybe one green thing to throw in a little flavor twist like arugula or something. But if somebody wants pineapple on their pizza, I don’t think anybody gets to be a Pizza Nazi. You can have whatever you want on it.”
