America’s Favorite Pizza Toppings



Okay, we know that pizza is far and away the number one comfort food favored by Americans, nearly double that of any other food choice.

But a new study reveals just how pie-lovers like their slice –from the toppings to how thick the crust is –even what to pair with it.

Maybe it’s not too mind-blowing that America’s favorite pizza topping is pepperoni. ┬áIt topped the list of favorites with anchovies, by contrast, topping the least favorite add-ons.

But out of the 2,193 adults surveyed online from January 13-18, the dominance of plain old cheese pizza is on the decline –coming in at number four behind mushrooms — and even rounding out the list of top 10 least favorites.
