Let's just get this out of the way: Putting ranch dressing on your pizza is disgusting and foul and you should feel ashamed of yourself if you desecrate the sanctity of the holy union of bread, tomato sauce, and cheese. For shame!
Anyway, Cane Rosso's in Dallas is doing it right and "charging" customers a sweet grand for the privilege to eat their pizza WRONG. Owner Jay Jerrier explained to Eater the type of people he usually encounters ordering this pghlemy subtance. It's weird, it always seems to be young, college-age girls that ask for it.
Of course, when they caught wind of his joke giant bottle of ranch, the Annals of Reddit reacted as they often do. Everybody [on Reddit] seems to assume we're the worst people in the world, like how dare they tell me how to eat my pizza! Dude, it's a joke. Relax.
But really, it's just a damn Yankee thing.
It was pretty funny how people did take it really seriously and were super offended. I guess it's the Midwest. They love them some ranch.
Also, it's his restaurant. He can do what he wants.
Well you know, at Cane Rosso we really try and you gotta take this with a grain of salt we try to stay authentically Neapolitan, but we're also the same guys who are putting brisket on pizza, and bacon marmalade. But we really try to stay far away from the kind of Midwest-American tradition. No chicken, no ham, no pineapple. I think for the most part, again, take it with a grain of salt, Cane Rosso is more about restraint and balance where we're not taking it to extremes. Ban ranch dressing on pizza.
If its good its good, some peoples way of eating is just a habit.
Pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza either. Flog the infidels....
Well...he’s right, besides everyone knows Ranch Dressing is not healthy.
Ask for Ketchup instead.
Ranch dressing on steamed broccoli is great stuff, though.
Good on them. Remind me of a hot dog stand in river grove Illinois. They have no ketchup on a hot dog policy. Ketchup is for kids and New York ers
To this day, my husband claims he invented the idea of ranch & pizza.
“It’s weird, it always seems to be young, college-age girls that ask for it.”
Sheer misogyny. And ageism.
Bet he doesn’t have a problem with middle-aged male construction workers putting tabasco or hot pepper flakes on their pizza. Oh, because they’re not idiots, they’re gastronomy experts. Unlike those silly college girls.
“I guess it’s the Midwest. They love them some ranch.”
And ‘salads’ composed of lime jello with shredded vegetables suspended in it topped with miniature marshmallows.
I used to feel sorry for my cousins, but they could have left.
Somehow, I’ve never thought HVR dressing would have become so popular if it had been branded “Hidden Valley Ranch - a Clorox product”.
Dirty Harry agrees
That’s funny. I like it.
Yeah it seems pretty common for people in these parts to order ranch. Its OK but its not for me.
Except that it isn't.
I am really getting tired of people bossing other people around and then when someone stands up to them pretending like it was suppose to be a joke.
I don't like ranch on pizza.
But I would bring in the biggest bottle I could find and plop it on the table in front of me just because the guy is being a jerk about it.
And I would loan it to anyone who asked.
Get over yourselves and stop trying to control people.
I agree, no pineapple! For me it’s ruined even if I remove the pineapple.
They’re missing the cottage cheese.
Californians love their ranch too.
