This might be the most unifying stat in America today: A new survey for National Pizza Day found almost EVERYONE eats it, EVERYONE!
Over 6,000 people were polled, and only 3% said they never eat pizza. So 97% of us do. Opinions are split on the best TYPE of pizza though, and first place might surprise you. According to the poll, the most popular type of pizza in 2021 is . . . THIN CRUST.
It got 31% of the vote. Regular crust is next at 29% . . . then deep-dish, 18% . . . pan, 9% . . . Sicilian, 3% . . . and French bread, 2%. Women were slightly more likely to say thin crust, and men were more likely to say deep dish.
The poll also looked at which TOPPINGS we love the most, and hate the most.
The 10 most popular pizza toppings are: Pepperoni . . . sausage . . . mushrooms . . . extra cheese . . . onions . . . peppers . . . bacon . . . olives . . . ham . . . and tomatoes.
The most-HATED toppings are: Anchovies . . . eggplant . . . artichokes . . . broccoli . . . pineapple . . . salami . . . olives . . . spinach . . . mushrooms . . . and onions. (Yes, mushrooms, onions, and olives made both lists.)
NOW, set me up a thin-crust pepperoni with extra cheese!
