Today is national pizza day, what is better than a nice hot slice with gooey cheese and your favorite toppings, I myself love extra cheese, pepperoni, black olives too!

Honestly, I don't think I know of a person who doesn't love the delicious treat of PizzaThis might be the most unifying stat in America today: A new survey for National Pizza Day found almost everyone eats it, at least sometimes. 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, which is my favorite.


It got 31% of the vote. The 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 which I have never had on a pizza is it any good? eggplant, artichokes, broccoli, pineapple, salami, olives, spinach, mushrooms, and onions. I am not a big eggplant and onion fan either. Yes, mushrooms, onions, and olives made both lists.
