Pizza toppings are a special and important part of the pizza meal. This is because people have different preference for pizza toppings.
While making a homemade pizza, you are at liberty of making any type of pizza toppings that suit you. When ordering pizza or eating in a restaurant, you have no choice but to choose from the different available toppings.
The ingredient made up of the pizza toppings varies according to the vegetables, milk, cheese, onion or fruit mix up. There are cases where people like to mix two different type of toppings.
Some people have the habit of removing pizza toppings when eating pizza if they are not really sure of the ingredients used in making the topping.
However, restaurants always provide options on what you will prefer as toppings on your pizza. This is because they realized that people have different preference, and some may be due to medical allergies.
According to the Huffington post from a survey carried out, 37% of people eat and order their pizza plain. This is a very high percentage of pizza lovers as the remaining percentages are shared among other varieties of toppings.
The survey also analysed pizza order from restaurants such as Pizza Vancouver and all over the United States and Canada, to ascertain the most ordered pizza toppings.
And from their result, they found out that the top 10 pizza toppings are as follows:
6. Extra Cheese
7. Black Olives
8. Green Pepper
The list is a surprise to many, as it gives the fact that people seem to mind eating healthy. The fact that we have onion way up to the list indicate people are mindful of the impact of vegetable on their meal.
One other point to notify is that this makes up 63% of people that orders topping as we already found out that 37% order pizza plain.
The 37% will raise a high concerns on the healthy eating habit of Americans, as eating pizza plain contains more calories. And also no extra body building ingredient goes along with it.
However, it still shows that more people are now eating healthy, and this is an improvement.
A food expert who saw this result classified Americans as boring as more people order plain pizza than with toppings. In other parts of the world like in Europe, especially Italy and Greece, pizza topping is a major part of the pizza. It is believed that the amount if that eating plain pizza is much more less than 37% in these regions.
The pizza toppings are usually made up of fresh ingredients such as tomatoes, cheese, pepper, fruits, meat or chicken, which are good for the body.
However, it all comes down to the preference of individuals what they prefer as pizza toppings, or if they prefer any toppings at all.
The statistic shows the eating habits of Americans when it comes to ordering and eating pizza.
