Children and adults alike can agree that pizza is one of the best foods out there. There really is nothing like biting into the soft and fresh texture of the dough smothered with a delicious tomato sauce and topped with that cheesy goodness. Are you craving a slice yet?

So it comes as no surprise that February 9th is National Pizza Day. It’s a day dedicated to you,  pizza lover. It’s time to surrender to that craving and order from your favorite pizzeria.

Don’t have your go-to toppings handy? Check out the list below to stir up some more cravings.

Most Popular Toppings:

  1. Pepperoni: You can’t go wrong with the ultimate king of toppings. Whether you go traditional or vegan, it’s definitely the best topping for your pizza.
  2. Sausage: It is a must on every meat lover’s pizza.  The salty taste and chewy texture combined with the crust, make for a most satisfying bite.
  3. Extra Cheese: It’s an effortless way to double your pleasure. Nothing is more satisfying than a long cheese pull.
  4. Onions: Intensify the taste of your pie with some sauteed onions. They won’t disappoint.
  5. Olives: They give a certain aesthetic look and taste great too! 
  6. Jalapenos: They make a good pizza topping. People prefer to use sliced fresh jalapenos rather than pickled ones for pizzas. As mentioned in, fresh peppers bring a nice heat without the acidic bite of the pickled jalapenos.

Least Popular Toppings:

  1. Pineapple: This one is definitely the most controversial of the toppings on a pizza. You either love the salty and sweet combination or you hate it. There’s really no in between.
  2. Spinach: Is it an extra dose of iron? Should we cook it or sprinkle it raw at the end? Lots of questions to be asked.
  3. Bacon: Does bacon really make everything taste better? Or can you have too much of a good thing?
  4. Mushrooms: This fungi always elicits a great debate. To mushroom or not to mushroom?
  5. Anchovies: This little fish adds an interesting salty taste.
