Best Pizza Toppings

The Top Ten
1 Pepperoni

Just a classic, and works so well all the time. Next to the fundamental trio of dough, sauce and cheese this is the best ingredient.

Pizza without pepperoni isn't pizza to me. Ill only eat pizza if it has pepperoni it wouldn't taste the same without it, it mixes up the flavor of the pizza instead of every bite being sauce and cheese.

I like pepperoni plain to, but the thing is I hate pizza. Everyonee is like offended because I hate pizza. I just hate the cheese. I rip of the cheese and eat the dough. I LLLOVVEE pepperoni plain and raw. I have a fat stomace though but it is too YYUMMY! I also can't spell and I am addicted to burritos

I love this so much! It like melts in my mouth and the crisp taste of it the epic crunch! I love it! My favorite was double stuffed peperoni! There so good. Thank you

2 Cheese

There's at least SOME cheese on almost every American pizza you see.

Also, it's usually the only pizza I like. (I like some brand's pepperoni pizza, but not every brand)

CHEESE, what would we do without it? I think that cheese the the tastiest and most original/unique pizza topping. The best part about a cheese pizza is that it is for everybody (well, everybody except for vegans. Vegetarians and nonvegetarians alike can sit together, (without being judged) and have a time of their life eating cheese pizza!

I think meat on pizza is disgusting and so is tomatoes, and I had olive pizza all the time when I was little and now I'm sick of it. Cheese is almost always on the pizza whether you put other toppings on or not, unless you get cheese-less pizza (ew? ). It's just the easiest and pizza can be less expensive without toppings at certain pizza places.

Definitely. Cheese is the best pizza topping! It tastes delicious and cheesy, definitely the yummiest pizza topping. Nobody wants that awful-tasting bacon or pepperoni to ruin their pizza! Cheese is, by far, the most amazing and delicious pizza topping for your pizza.

3 Bacon

Bacon is the good thing to put on pizza, why do Americans want to put ketchup on pizza? because they will make it good. Tomato Sauce + Ketchup = Ketcuse.

I don't really know why I voted for bacon because my family is vegetarian, and we don't eat bacon, well, not real bacon anyway. We used to get this vegetarian bacon which was made of a vegetarian food product called Quorn. Basically, they were just these pink strips made of the Quorn with vegetarian bacon flavouring on them. It was pretty artificial, and eventually we stopped getting them because they were really high in salt.

Absolutely Love Bacon on my pizza ! Bacon makes anything so good especially potatoes . Bacon is the absolute best on pizza and I even eat bacon for breakfast too .

BACON BACON BACON! Who doesn't like bacon? (unless against religion or you're a vegetarian) Bacon goes with most foods. Except chocolate, that's disgusting. I've tried it. Pizza is an Italian classic and bacon is I think American or European, and put it together. Yum...

4 Pineapple

I'm pleasantly surprised to see pineapple rank in the top five of this list. Pineapple on pizza, or cooked pineapple in general, usually gets a lot of flak and is disliked by most. But I love it, and pineapple is easily my favorite pizza topping. It adds so much more flavor and juiciness to the pizza and pineapple goes great with it.

This is disgusting and anyone who puts pineapple on pizza has the mark of Satan on their body. They are going to hell. They will not survive revelations. This is the one-world government, and beware non-pineapple lovers, because they will behead you if you do not comply to their unacceptable eating habits.

It doesn't seem like it works, but it does. The sweet taste really complements the pizza very well. Looking at the top two as of this point, cheese isn't even a topping, it's a basic part of the pizza. And pepperoni is good, but I can live without it.

Pineapple on pizzas is absolutely gross. In fact, it's NOT a pizza if it has pineapple on it. You'll never find a pizza with pineapple on it in Italy, the home of pizzas so stay in America and eat your dreamt up "pizzas" I.e. pineapple on dough.

5 Sausage

Sausage on pizza is HEAVEN! It tastes even better if the pizza is bought from Giuseppe's or Papa John's. I like bacon on pizza too, except that it rarely has flavor. Anyway, everyone should vote for sausage! I do not understand why sausage would EVER be fifth place when you're voting for best toppings. Although, my big sis is probably pleasantly joyful right now, because her favorite pizza topping is pepperoni, which is so-called 1st place. I am never eating pepperoni again in my life!

My usual pizza has gouda and mozzarella with ham, but this very topping changed everything. It's just as good as tuna, which also goes with pasta.

Sausage is so amazing that I can use it on my pizza or in a pasta if I want, or depending on the day! It made me crave for meat lovers pizza as my favorite food, and other meat toppings in general, like bacon and pepperoni!

Sausage is pepperoni's underrated but so much better brother. He's smarter and stronger but not as flashy. But then again, a flashy exterior means a dull interior.

6 Mushrooms

Well it is a funny topping. I did some research on the "mushroom topping" and believely, it was invented in 2000 as a millenum festival says my research. I might be wrong, but thatts what I found. And they used to eat it to celebrate, then I started to eat mushroom pizza about 4 years ago. I personally think its okay, but not utterly the best. Pepperoni I like ;P

The first time I heard Mushrooms as a pizza topping I thought "Eeww. " Because I hate Mushrooms. Then I tryed a pizza with mushrooms, pepperoni, and peppers, and I loved it! Especially the mushrooms which was a huge surprise to me. Now I aways want Mushrooms as one of my pizza toppings.

I used to have a large mushroom pie delivered to me about twenty times a year. I was always drunk when the delivery guy arrived, and on two or three occasions things got out of hand,

Mushrooms suits a thin-crusted pizza really well. It tastes fantastic. Especially when you add some mozzarella on it... Mm.

7 Ham

Ham... Juicy ham. I love most all pizza toppings, but ham takes the cake, along with bacon. Lets get ham above bacon! Ham tastes better, is juicier, and is less fatty than bacon!

Crispy and with the cheese and tomato it melts in your mouth...
Cut in little bits and mix with chopped up onions then mix with garlic and put the pizza in the oven!

I like my pizza topped with lots of ham, two cheeses, no sauce, and grilled (and yes, I said GRILLED! ) I can't live without a good pie!

An absolute staple of pizza. It's just consistently awesome.

8 Onions

It's the topping I always hope for. Pepperoni is so overused and overrated. Chicken, mushrooms, and onions are the perfect trio for me!

I have not tasted them yet but I'm saying this because this dose not have that much comments...

I have acquired the taste of onions over the years. Gives a nice taste to the pizza.

It's so good- no justification is needed.

9 Chicken

I love chicken too, I just wish there was a chicken pizza topping that could have a great Italian flavor, maybe even one that can explode the flavor in your mouth like a good peperoni!

Chicken is the best ever topping, how can it be classed as a yummy pizza if it doesn't contain traditional chicken!

Its always one of the most appealing topping choices whenever it's my turn to choose. It goes good with pretty much anything.

Yas. BBQ chicken, buffalo chicken, chicken ranch... My fave is chicken ranch - buttery, creamy, tangy, meaty... yum.

10 Mozzarella

Mozzarella is from itself a really soft, delicious cheese. But on a pizza it's melted and ten times more yumy!

Yum I love mozzarella!

Don't know what the difference between this and cheese is, but it is good on pizza

The Contenders
11 Olives

For me? I prefer an extra cheese pizza with peperoni and olives. Lots of people think they look yucky but I find them to go perfectly with the peperoni

They're delish! I cannot eat pizza without olives! And they're also very healthy.

Tastes perfect with green olives on pizza.

Me too! Love olives on my pizza

12 Tomato Sauce

Obviously needs my first vote. Except for dough, the pizza sauce is the most fundamental component of pizza.

I think they were just typing a "JOKE! " wHO ever put this on the list is Foolish!

Js I don't think I have ever had a pizza without tomato sauce on it but that might just be me?

Since you need it so...

13 Jalapeno

Finishes of the perfect pizza topping of Double Chilli beef, Double Cheese, Spicy chicken, Pineapple & Garlic oil.

While meat is good, a few jalapeno peppers add something unique to pizza. It is through tanginess that my vote extends to jalapenos.

Ah, just imagine the taste with pineapple and olives! And soft crust as the spice drifts through your mouth!

Not everybody likes spicy but I guess everyone has an opinion. Jalapeno is my absolute favourite pizza topping

14 Green Peppers

Mushrooms and black olives make for a delicious vegetable pizza. Green peppers are very, very good too, but go light on them as they tend to overpower the other flavors. Top your fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza with cold sliced fresh tomatoes, and you'll be in vegetarian heaven!

They add a fresh, crisp crunch and a green splash of color to any and every pizza! Green peppers aren't only very yummy, they also healthy since they're a vegitable. I love green peppers!

Green peppers would actually compliment the other flavours in a good way, despite the weirdness of it

Adds taste and texture

15 BBQ Sauce

BBQ is a family favourite, the kids love it! I think it tastes divine, I highly recommend it as an exquisite addition to your pizza.

History of BBQ sause

Some place the origin of barbecue sauce at the formation of the first American colonies in the 17th century. References to the substance start occurring in both English and French literature over the next two hundred years. South Carolina mustard sauce, a type of barbecue sauce, can be traced to German settlers in the 18th century.[citation needed]

Early cookbooks did not tend to include recipes for barbecue sauce. The first commercially produced barbecue sauce was made by the Georgia Barbecue Sauce Company in Atlanta, Georgia. Its sauce was advertise for sale in the Atlanta Constitution, January 31, 1909. Heinz released its barbecue sauce in 1940. Kraft Foods also started making cooking oils with bags of spice attached, supplying another market entrance of barbecue sauce.

Almost picked pepperoni. BBQ Sauce and Chicken is better though. Same with Buffalo Sauce and Chicken

BBQ sauce is actually amazing on pizza... I was lucky to accidentally discover that

It is really good but...

16 Tomato

Seriously? Tomatoes are just number 16 in this list? I put tomatoes chopped on all my pizzas, and a load of tomato sauce underneath. I am disgusted. The dream food for Americans is literally cheese on bread. I, for one, put all sorts of vegetables on my pizzas.

When you bite into the pizza, the juiciness of the tomatoes burst out. It's sooo good!

Cheese, tomato and garlic on top oh my goodness YES! Try it.
(You can avoid garlic, it is not necessary but it gives the pizza a great taste

17 Garlic
18 Hamburger Meat

Yep, all you gotta do is add half a packet of onion soup mix to a pound of ground beef and you'll be in heaven!

This is a Midwestern thing that should be a nation wide one! It's the best

19 Beef

Ground beef I imagine can be a finishing touch of sorts on a meat lovers pizza or something

20 Black Olives

No, there are black and green olives.

I think most olives are black huh?

They taste great

21 Anchovies

The best topping is anchovies. This topping was the real original topping that came out of Naples. I love all pizza toppings (except chicken) but anchovies give the taste of the great Italian food -and I am not even Italian.

Anyone who doesn't like anchovies on their pizza is boring and a philistine. Best co-topping with anchovies is onions, although tomatoes, mushrooms, goat cheese and/or feta cheese work well here too. The cheeses in particular will mellow it out.

Salty, delicious, perhaps a controversial choice for some, but always a winner when we make pizzas. So many pizzerias don't even offer anchovies these days, but it's a real shame. Fry knows what I'm talking about.

I'm one of the few people that actually likes anchovies on their pizza. Pizza and anchovies are PERFECT together!

22 Spinach

It's just so delicious

23 BBQ Chicken

I like all meats

24 Meatballs

Meatball Pizza. Everyone loves it.

Amazing love it

25 Salami

I love salami on a pizza. My favourite topping!

Nothing can't beat salami!
