When it comes to food, the world can be divided into two camps: those who think pineapple has a place on pizza and those who definitely don't.
If Iceland's president had his way, no sweet chunks of tropical goodness would ever be found on a slice of savoury pie ever again.
Gudni Johannesson told students, in no uncertain terms, that he stands firmly in the "no pineapple" camp, while taking questions at a North Iceland high school last week.

According to local news site Visir, the president said while he likes pineapple on its own, he would go so far as passing a law prohibiting the fruit on pizza — if he had the power, that is.
It's a polarizing comment, for sure, and he even went so far as to issue a Facebook statement on the "controversy."
"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. Presidents should not have unlimited power."
He did, however, say that he is a fan of seafood pizza — which may not sound very appetizing to our North American palates.
Of course, Twitter users had something to say about Johannesson's pizza preferences.
There were the "yeas":

And the "nays":
Iceland's President has said he would ban pineapple on pizza. The type of guy that should be leading us here in the UK— Mark Lawrence (@MLawrenceJourno) February 21, 2017
One pizza creator felt compelled jump in on the debate:

But, no matter which side you stand, this little nugget of truth wins over everything else:
