Favorite (And Least Favorite) Pizza Toppings & Crust 

Can you guess what America’s favorite pizza topping is? According to a survey of more than 6,000 US adults, pepperoni is the top choice, with nearly 64% of adults liking this topping. Falling in second and third place respectively were sausage and mushrooms; Does this surprise you? The most disliked toppings were anchovies, with 61% of Americans voting against this topping. Eggplant, artichokes, and broccoli also fell in the dislike category. 

Next, let’s talk crust; thin, regular, or deep dish? That’s the debate, and it’s pretty evenly split. 31% of Americans prefer thin crust pizza, 29% prefer regular crust, while 18% prefer deep dish. It seems that the Midwest tends to prefer thin crust, while the northeast chooses regular crust. The south was fairly evenly distributed in this debate!
