Are Ya Kidding Me? Massachusetts’ Fave Pizza Topping Is THIS???
Alright, Berkshire County friends and neighbors, I think we can all agree that most people like (if not flat-out LOVE) pizza. Right? However, I also think we can all agree that not everybody likes the same kind of pizza!
Some like Chicago Deep Dish, others like the thin crust Brooklyn Style, while some gotta have Stuffed Crust. And toppings? Forget about it. Sausage and onion? Check. Pepperoni and extra cheese? Now you're talking. Mushrooms? Never!
And then of course there's the "Pineapple Brigade". Me? I happen to love pineapple. I mean, I lived in Hawaii, for crying out loud. Fresh chunks of pineapple. Yum. Pineapple rings atop an Easter ham? Absolutely! Pineapple in tropical boat drinks or Scorpion bowls? Gimme, gimme. Pineapple on pizza? Yuck! I simply cannot do it.
All of this raises an intriguing question: What is America's favorite pizza topping? And for that matter, what is the preferred pizza topping for Massachusetts? Recently, Casinos.com decided to find out the answers to those questions.
The crew at Casinos.com looked at Google Trends search data across all 50 states for the most commonly ordered pizza toppings in the country to find out the most popular topping in each state and in America overall.
This is probably not a surprise to many but their research revealed the most popular pizza topping in the country overall is pepperoni. Pepperoni was also the #1 most popular topping in 29 states. However, Massachusetts was not one of those states.
While I do enjoy pepperoni, it's not my favorite, either. I prefer sausage and onion pizza. But it's gotta be both. It can't be one or the other. Nope. Not gonna work. Before we get to Massachusetts' favorite pizza topping, let's look at the top 10 toppings in the country overall:
- Ground Beef
Any guesses on which topping residents of the Commonwealth prefer? The answer is...the country's #2 pick overall...Bacon. Now don't get me wrong. I love everything bacon but I hardly ever order it on pizza. And I have no idea why.
Here are a couple more interesting notes from the pizza toppings report: The least popular pizza topping is anchovies...by far. And pineapple overall is the 12th most popular pizza topping. Interestingly, pineapple was actually the #1 favorite topping in one state. Can you guess? That's right, Hawaii.
