There are so many different toppings that can be put on pizza and they can vary from country to country. Here in the USA, the toppings most often listed on a menu are: pepperoni, ham, ground beef, bacon, sausage, onions, green peppers, roasted peppers, black olives, mushrooms, pineapple, and extra cheese. Recently some others began to appear as specialty items: spinach, broccoli, grilled zucchini or eggplant, chicken, hot sauce, BBQ sauce, Ranch dressing, Alfredo sauce, even macaroni and cheese.
Now, personally, my favorite toppings are (not all together): ham, sausage, bacon, onions, green peppers, black olives and pineapple. Extra cheese is always welcome, too. I've eaten slices of bacon ranch chicken pizza and found that I really liked it, although I won't ever order it as a whole pizza. I've ordered spinach and ham or spinach with black olives and enjoyed it, too. Baby spinach leaves aren't bitter like canned spinach is. I've had the eggplant as a topping and loved it. Ham and pineapple with black olives, bacon and hot sauce is another one I love.
Toppings I flat out refuse to have on my pizza are: mushrooms, anchovies, ground beef, sliced sausages (I want the uncased sausage, not the kind that comes in links). I would eat the pizza in the photo except I'd take off the mushrooms. I really and truly dislike mushrooms. I'm not a big fan of pepperoni, either, but I will eat it at times if it's well cooked and crispy. Otherwise, I take that off, too.
So, what pizza toppings do you like? What ones won't you eat? What toppings do you like that I haven't listed? Are they popular in your country or just to you?
