I'm sorry SY. It may be too late for you to recover if you were to leave Texas now. We'll sorely miss you.

It is ungodly good here for live music, enough so to demotivate me about investing more in my stereo. This week, I'll catch George Carver and The Modern Agriculture (that's tonight), Seela, Southpaw Jones, and the Jeff Lofton Quartet. All in venues not much bigger than my living room and for minimal $$$. Don't think any of them have fiddles, but I will admit I'm partial to acoustic bluegrass.

So, all that said... mayo on pizza is wrong. Salsa on pizza is wrong. Pineapple on pizza is wrong. Someone may like it (god knows why), but the result cannot be called "pizza." Call it "pizzacotta" or "pizzoidish," it ain't pizza.
I have to agree with you on the toppings that should never be used on pizza.

Why do you import things that are available in any decent grocery store? There are at least 5 brands of San Marzano DOP tomatoes available here, including "organic". Since a friend of mine owns a large custom bakery, flower of any type is not a problem either.

The great thing about pizza in Texas is there are no restrictions on building coal-fired or wood-fired pizza ovens. None of that Yankee "we got the only coal-fired oven in town 'cuz it wuz grandfathered in."

My mother got upset when my sister burned peat.

FWIW, this is a better use for mayo than pizza:
