Poll: Ranch dressing on Pizza: Yay or Nay? (307 votes)

Fuck yes! 26%
What are you smoking? 55%
Indifferent about it 19%

So on this weeks bombcast (3-5-13) Jeff publicly basically says "Ranch on a pizza? FUCK YOU!" To which I was surprised to hear because I love putting ranch dressing on my pizzas. Now I ask the giantbomb community do you put ranch on your pizza? Do you like it or think it's the worst thing ever?

Hells yes. But only when the pizza is beyond microwaving back to some semblance of edibleness.

Should have also added that the rest of the bombsquad more or less agreed with Jeff.

Putting Ranch on pizza is pretty much the only way to ruin a pizza.

I've never had this, but when I go to subway I get my meatball marinara with ranch, so something tells me I would enjoy this.

I do it on a rare occasion. I used to say fuck you to ranch on pizza when I saw a kid do it in like 6th grade. It took until I was like 27 before I actually tried it. I ended up liking it a lot. It's especially good on a cardboard flavored pepperoni pizza from Pizza Hut. You know when the pizza is kind of terrible but you're hungry and pizza is pizza.

Nothing like a bit of ranch dressing on Pizza and pictures of MRSA infections to kick off a Friday night.

I actually don't care either way, if I'm in the mood for a dip and ranch is my only option it doesn't bother me. More often than not I get a creamy garlic or sweet chilli.

I remember kids doing it a lot whenever we had pizza for lunch in grade school. I always thought it was gross.

I laughed when they said the ranch craze was a thing from the 90s. I remember this a lot in the late 90s, even did it myself. But my reaction now is "fuck you!" to ranch on pizza.

"Fuck you" is the proper response when someone puts ranch on a pizza.

I knew a guy from high school that would eat that every day. I couldn't stand to look at it.

It pretty much ruins a pizza unless it's some weird salad on a pizza crust. On occasion, I've used ranch or honey mustard as a dip on just the bready crust leftovers after finishing off the good pizza pie interior beforehand.

Fuck yeah, ranch dressing on everything (except salad, it's so ungodly bad for you that it defeats the purpose of eating a salad, so why bother?) Maybe not the bottled stuff, but the stuff we make at work with buttermilk is fantastic. You don't put it on your pizza, you dunk it and... wait, is Ranch Dressing the new thing that's cool to hate? Jeff hates it, so must the fanbase? OK, that's the excuse I'll use to justify my disgusting habits to myself.

My friends from high school would get ranch every time we had pizza for lunch. I didn't eat lunch at school, but we still had to be in the cafeteria during lunch time. So I would sit there watching my friends dip pizza in ranch. I never said anything to them, but I thought it was pretty gross. I do like ranch just fine, but on a salad.

I thought Jeff was joking when he said it. Not the fuck you part, the part where someone would actually put it on pizza.

It tastes okay, but it's the kind of thing that's so rich and heavy you feel like you're on the verge of a coma after eating it.

I clicked "Fuck yes!" but I really meant "Fuck you!"

Ranch is not acceptable for any sort of human consumption.

I get it as a dip for the crusts. Most people around here get donair sauce but I don't like it since I'm not from the Maritimes.

Ranch is okay on like two things, neither of them pizza, and even then I want to die after eating it.

Like actually on top of the pizza? That sounds kind of gross. Like for a dip for the crusts? Sure, I've done that before.

Hey guys, should I put ketchup on this pizza instead of tomato sauce?

#42 Posted by RenegadeDoppelganger (647 posts) -

ON pizza, hell no. As a dipping sauce on the side, yes.

I've had "pizza" where the sauce was something other than tomato (BBQ sauce, alfredo, chili) and it's always way overzealous and gross.

The only exception being a thin crust potato pizza with red onions and tuna (or anchoives). Quite possibly my favorite pizza ever and dead simple to make.

Now that I think about it there's only one thing: tomato and basil Wheat Thins.

That shit is cash, but yeah I feel like the worst person after eating them.
