Pineapple on your pizza: Yay or nay?
It’s a seemingly never-ending debate, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially taken a stance.
Johnson, who’s in the midst of filming the Fast and the Furious spinoff Hobbs and Shaw, posted a photo on his Instagram a few days ago of himself towering over an extra-large pie topped with none other than pineapple chunks and ham. The pizza was from Mulberry Street Pizzeria, and he has this trainer to thank for the treat-yo-self cheat meal.

📱🍕💪🏾 Got the glorious text from my strength & conditioning coach @daverienzi that read “DJ, need a mid week carb up for your big scenes tomorrow. Eat a pizza and send me your pics in the morning” to which I responded – Watch. This. We’re having fun strategically manipulating my diet/body for shooting HOBBS & SHAW (my Fast & Furious spin-off film) and I love these midweek pizza carb ups like a drunk loves free peanuts. As for my pizza toppings – keep in mind, I’m the guy who likes to put tequila and brown sugar in my oatmeal, so pineapple on pizza is MY JAM – with ham. #PizzaCarbUp #StrategicManipulation #HobbsAndShaw #MyPizzaMyRules🍍😈
“Got the glorious text from my strength and conditioning coach @daverienzi that read ‘DJ, need a mid week carb up for your big scenes tomorrow,’” Johnson wrote in the caption. “‘Eat a pizza and send me your pics in the morning.’”
Apparently pizza is a large part of his diet. Johnson continued to write that he frequently has midweek pizza carb-loading sessions, and he loves it like “a drunk loves free peanuts.”
“As for my pizza toppings – keep in mind, I’m the guy who likes to put tequila and brown sugar in my oatmeal, so pineapple on pizza is MY JAM – with ham,” he continues to write.
Many commenters rejoiced, with one writing on Instagram, “You know it’s legit if he’s doing it!”
And like Twitter user Phil said below, clearly, we could all learn a thing or two from Johnson.
That's why I don't have muscles in places you have places. I been eating fruits, veggies. The secret lies in the sauce don't it? I've been wrong this whole time. Hawaiian pizza! here I come! pic.twitter.com/I69gyLDqJL

Others weren’t too thrilled, one commenter responding, “Pineapple on pizza…blasphemy.”
This guy on Twitter isn’t here for Johnson’s pizza of choice either.
Pineapple on your pizza mate. Why

At least we can all agree on one thing: We could all use a trainer like Johnson’s. That said, Dwayne, we’d like the number of your trainer, stat. Thanks.
