Ranch on pizza. Is it a vice or a virtue? This battle may never be won, but that does not make the war between ranch lovers and pizza purists will ever end. So, let’s take a look at both sides.
Those who douse their pizza in ranch would argue that the tangy, creaminess of ranch enhances the flavor of their favorite slice. No matter if they get a classic pepperoni or a fancy vegetable pizza, they are here for it. In fact, they use pizza more as a vehicle to get the ranch in their mouths rather than as the main course. Ranch lovers would argue that pizza joints would not serve ranch in their establishments if the dressing dreams are made of were not meant to be served right alongside crust, tomato sauce, cheese, and toppings.
Pizza purists argue that if you actually have an advanced palette, ranch on pizza would be revolting to you. They believe that you should never ruin a truly great pizza with such a distracting flavor. They barely tolerate ranch on their salad, much less it on a perfectly crafted pizza. If you talked to a pizza purist, you would find that they believe that those who enjoy ranch on pizza are not truly cultured and have never actually had a quality pizza in their life.
As with any battle, a neutral party is necessary to ensure that there is a semblance of peace. The neutral party believes that the ranch can belong on pizza if it is specially created with that in mind or if it is just not that great of pizza. They are the bridge that makes it possible for ranch lovers and pizza purists to eat together in (relative) peace.
