What Pizza Toppings Do You Prefer?

United States
February 12, 2017 9:26am CST
I learned recently that some of the top ten pizza toppings are pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, olives and peppers, which are my favorites. However, in some countries the favorite toppings are much different. For instance, in Japan, some like squid and cabbage and fried eggs. In Russia, they like sardines, mackerel, tuna and salmon. In Brazil, they prefer peas, quail eggs, raisins and beets. In Great Britain, they like haggis (made from sheep organs) and black chili jam, which I have no idea what that is. In India, they like chicken tandoori, paneer (cottage cheese) and pickled ginger. One pizza, that was VERY expensive had Norwegian lobster, buffalo mozzarella, and three types of caviar and it was sprinkled with pink sea salt from the Murray River in Australia. ($12,000 was the price!) Yikes! What do you like on your pizza? Or do you even eat pizza?

Should you ever have the opportunity of going to Naples, Italy, where pizza was born, you should order a Pizza Margherita and you'll understand why this is *the* one and only pizza and all other kinds are aberrations.

I think that Napolitans are right, they should call all the other "things" with another name, but not pizza.

@LadyDuck I see what you mean. But, PIZZA is ingrained now in the USA, for sure. No one is going to call it by another name at this point in time, I'm sure.

I prefer my pizza to just have cheese but occasionally will add pepperoni (nothing fancy for me)

I have a friend who likes barbecued chicken on her pizza. I tried it, but I'm not much for barbecue. It was OK.

@nomus24g For some reason, when I first your post, I read it as "smoked children." I guess you must not eat much pizza.

@msiduri I suggest you NOT to eat much of them, else you will keep mistaking chicken for children

@MALUSE I do like tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. I'll have to see if any of the PIZZA restaurants have a Margherita Pizza on their menu. It sounds good to me.

Anchovies NO. I tried them once on a homemade pizza and ended up throwing the entire pizza away.

The toppings you first mentioned are among my favorites. However it is expensive to order pizza here and one pizza can make the difference between one meal or a trip for groceries. So if I want pizza I make my own with whatever toppings I have on hand.

I am Italian and I fully agree with @MALUSE, people should find another name for those "crusts" topped with plenty of ingredients that nothing have in common with a real pizza.

I'm sure you are right. I'd love to taste a "real pizza." I do like what they call the Mediterranean Pizza, with feta cheese and spinach. I order that sometimes.

Well, I'll forgo the sheep organs and pink sea salt. Maybe next time. My favorite toppings are garlic and basil.

Yes, I agree. Some of those toppings were pretty weird, in my humble opinion. But, to each his own, I always say.

Yes, I like pizza and prefer US traditional toppings. I like either a lot of meat or vegetable toppings. However, I do like ham and pineapple or spinach and broccoli on a pizza.

I have tried the ham and pineapple and its good. I like spinach on the Mediterranean style pizza. I've never had broccoli though.
