Weird food pairings are unique to each person. Some people insist on dipping ruffles in cream cheese, while others loyally stand by eating fries with ranch. But every now and then a pairing comes around that enrages the masses. Right now, the upsetting combination is pizza and milk.

Yes, people are dipping their pizza in milk.

Munchies reports that Twitter user @hyrulecitizen first shared an image of dunking a slice of pepperoni pizza in milk. In theory, this should not be so offensive since cheese is a primary pizza topping and milk is a dairy product just like cheese. The internet, however, begs to differ.

According to Buzzfeed, @hyrulecitizen is a 20-year-old college student from Dallas, Texas, named Mariam. The user, who hates pineapple on pizza, has since made their account private and swapped out their profile picture.

Mariam told Buzzfeed News that she was bored when she decided to try pizza and milk. She ended up dipping her pizza in chocolate milk and thought it wasn’t too bad.

“I can confirm, milk on pizza is way better than pineapples on pizza,” she tells Buzzfeed News. “Milk and cheese are in the same category, whereas pineapples and cheese are complete opposites.”

Her insider tip for those open-minded enough to try it out: Make sure both the milk and the pizza are cold and the pizza does not have a lot of tomato sauce. And for those who are riled up about it, Mariam says people should try it before judging.

“The negative responses just go on to show that people are too sensitive and will judge anything before trying it,” she says.

The internet, unfortunately, doesn’t agree with Mariam.
