Jay Z Makes Fun of Beyoncé’s Strange Pizza-Eating Habits: ‘She’s from Houston … They Don’t Have Pizza There’

Like all native New Yorker, Jay Z has serious opinions about pizza.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, the rapper-turned-mogul revealed his favorite New York slice: Lucali, a pizzeria in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood that specializes in thin-crust pizza.

Kimmel then asked Jay about his wife Beyoncé‘s unconventional favorite pizza toppings of extra tomato sauce and jalapeños.

“Have you explained that that’s unacceptable in Brooklyn?” Kimmel asks the star.

“She’s from Houston, first of all,” Jay Z says. “They don’t have pizza there.”

We know that’s not true, but still — the idea of a city without pizza sends shivers down our spines.

Jay Z and Beyoncé dine out all over the city — and the world. While touring Italy this summer with their daughter, Blue Ivy, the power couple scarfed down quite a bit of pizza (though no jalapeños in sight.)

Of course, when Beyoncé is eating vegan, her toppings get even crazier (close your ears, pizza purists) she tops her pie with avocado and vegan cheese made of raw cashews and tapioca flour.

He was joking about Houston not having pizza, but Brooklyn’s pizza is 1 probably the best outside of Italy. I’ve stood in line for over an hour to get pizza and it was worth it.
