Even in the US, they wouldn't do it. Their pizza is very decent, eh.

What is ketchup used for, then? Idk. Some hamburgers and fries, admittedly.
Ketchup is still much better than mayonnaise (that's way too fat) in fries.

This is clearly before California's coming tax hikes following which the "city" with the most billionaires per capita will be Incline, NV.

Regular Italian tomato paste is much better. Both healthier and tastier. Only, it takes more time and a bit more skills to cook it properly.
Hè, for example, pizza is not made up of ketchup, huh. The basic layer of sauce on your pizza is Italian tomato paste. Doesn't it taste better than ketchup? Dang, it does.
It's too bad that people don't have more time to cook for themselves and their loved ones, 'cause it's fun.

Otherwise, it'd be more relevant to have a gdp per capita ranking. Because who cares about billionaires?
I mean, even selling ketchup could make a billionaire of somebody.
It's just funny!
Ketchup is tomato paste PLUS vinegar, sweetener (sugar or corn syrup) and some spices. Some people do make their own. But the bottled kind has a place as a table condiment on a lot of things like hot dogs, hamburgers, all sorts of fried foods.

The vinegar in ketchup is the main reason you wouldn't put it on pizza but on the other hand many recipes for barbecue sauce do include it because that item usually does have vinegar in some form.

The Heinz product I find incomprehensible is the canned "baked" beans the British eat for breakfast of all things. That habit alone condemns British cuisine.

Strangely, that's Stateline, NV (adjacent to South Lake Tahoe), not Incline Village, which is on the North side of the lake and mostly just expensive houses in trees. Incline Village is the part of Tahoe that's closest to Reno (assuming the Mt. Rose Highway isn't closed due to snow).

I had a high school teacher who commuted in his convertible or motorcycle from Incline Village to my high school in Reno. He was rich from inheritance and taught high school chemistry for fun...

Ketchup has no place on hotdogs.

It's ok with fries.

In Romania, people do indeed use ketchup on Pizza

Thank you. I didn't know about the ingredients. I loved it as a kid (even in pasta, that purists would find absolutely shocking), but now that I'm older, I often find it just a bit too sugary. My personal taste gradually turned more towards mere tomato and some eastern spices like curry powder that I use extensively.

I didn't mean to be offensive to anybody, huh. I was just kidding. Ketchup is quite pop over here as well.
Lol, we live in the same world and I bet the French took quite some part in Mrs Heinz's fortune...

This is not a cuisine course anyway.

It's not that far-fetched to put ketchup in pasta. Pasta sauce is supposed to have a touch of sugar to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes, so that's probably why many people find the taste of ketchup to be complementary with pasta.

I hate these types of "food rules", that people usually from a certain area where said food originates from/is popular, get all silly about adhering to... as if there's a sophisticated manner in which to dress meat goo encased in intestines.

We've got some really thrifty billionaires.

I won't say who, but this house valued at $1.7 Million in a very middle class Bay Area suburb is the primary residence of a multi billionaire who has no plans of ever moving. This person is not in high tech by the way.

Some people here actually have it on hot breakfast items like fried eggs, potatoes and meat like bacon/ham/sausage.

But I don't like that and even see it as a manque de savoir-vivre.

Some people also put ketchup on traditional Québécois meat pies like tourtières.

Again, not for me. My mother actually finds it insulting when people put ketchup on tourtières she has baked.

Are there really that many, though?

I have honestly never heard that - with respect to pasta or pizza.

It's mostly a joke https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago-style_hot_dog

When I was a kid I would put it on leftover spaghetti. You won't ever see it in Little Italy, but I've heard it mentioned enough to think it's not that uncommon. I don't get why someone would put it on pizza, though. The flavor of ketchup seems like it would clash with pizza.

As a fellow, former Eastern Bloc child, can confirm that ketchup on pizza was common

I like how we’re not even off of page 2, and it’s quite clear that we’d much rather talk about condiments than billionaires

I'm amazed at how many billionaires London and Moscow have lost. I think that they used to be somewhat close to NY. Miami's numbers have risen a lot.

It could just be differing methodology re. domicile. Billionaires will very likely have multiple homes.
