While the Internet is divided on whether pineapple belongs on a pizza, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson might have just influenced the world in favour of the topping.
The actor, 46, shared a photo of himself holding a giant pineapple pizza, sporting a muscle shirt, on Thursday via Instagram.
“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, who is currently filming the upcoming “Fast and Furious” spinoff, wrote. “‘Eat a pizza and send me your pics in the morning.’”
Johnson says he responded with a simple, “Watch. This.”

📱🍕💪🏾 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🍍😈
He then talked to his followers about his favourite pizza topping, the very controversial pineapple.
“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 continued.
And most of Johnson’s followers loved his topping choices. “You know it’s legit if he’s doing it!” wrote a commenter.
While some stars — including Jimmy Kimmel and Gordon Ramsay — are opposed to the notion of pineapple on pizza, Johnson offered a hilarious response to a query set from from ET Canada’s own Sangita Patel, who thought he seemed like “more of a pepperoni/meat lovers pizza kind of guy.”
Quipped The Rock: “Pepperoni and meat lovers were in the other two boxes.”
