I don't normally put pineapple on my pizza but it's a nice fruit, it has nice texture and it pairs really well with ham or canadian bacon.
I like to put cream cheese on my pizza, yes I do! Don't knock it till you try it.
You're right. I've eaten in many regions. Almost anything goes. There is a creamy cheese there that is used a lot on pizza. It's really good, kinda of spreadable burrata. Although I've never seen pineapple and ham, the pizzas in Italy always have ingredients that blend well together. Something you would eat together even if it would not be on the pizza. I've seen things like a type of french fry, horse meat, peas, lettuce, capers, anchovies, etc. I haven't seen much fruit though. Up north I had a pie, with a thicker bread type crust, it had pears on it. It also had gorgonzola, fresh walnuts and honey. I make it here sometimes. I can't remember what region, but they used a lot of a pumpkin puree/sauce.
In Italy there are only two types of pizza, white or red.
