It’s Pepperoni Pizza Day – Do These Toppings Belong on a Pizza?

If you’re looking for an excuse NOT to cook tonight, today is National Pepperoni Pizza Day.

A new poll asked pizza lovers about 30 different toppings, and whether or not they belong on a pizza.  Pepperoni received the most “yes” votes of all the toppings, but it wasn’t unanimous.  7% of people voted NO.

The other toppings that at least two-thirds of people say DO belong on pizza include:  Mushrooms, garlic, onions, bacon, chicken, sausage, green peppers, ham, roasted red peppers, and pesto. The ones that only about HALF of people are cool with are:  Spinach, tomato slices, black olives, jalapenos, pineapple (42% said no to pineapple), sun-dried tomato, ground beef, banana peppers, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, artichokes, and broccoli.

The ones that at least two-thirds of people said do NOT belong on pizza are:  Fried eggs, asparagus, zucchini, eggplant, anchovies, shrimp, and corn.
