Someone got their hands on a bunch of data from Yelp, and posted the most common type of pizza we order in all 50 states. And the winner is . . . plain old CHEESE. Cheese pizza ranked first in 29 states. And it’s especially popular on the East Coast.
Here are some more stats on our favorite pizza orders . . .
1. Chicken is WAY more popular as a topping than it used to be. “Barbecue chicken pizza” was #1 in seven states: California . . . Colorado . . . Michigan . . . Minnesota . . . Nebraska . . . Utah . . . and Virginia.
And three other “chicken” pizzas made the list too: “Buffalo chicken” in Delaware . . . “chicken bacon ranch” in South Dakota . . . and “grilled chicken white pizza” in Maine.
2. Montana and Oregon are the only states where pepperoni ranked first. But “Meat Lovers” is #1 in Louisiana, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
3. “White pizza” is #1 in Alaska . . . “taco pizza” is #1 in Iowa . . . and “Caprese” pizza ranked first in Hawaii.
4. That means Hawaii’s favorite type of pizza ISN’T Hawaiian. But it did place first in three other states: Georgia, North Dakota, and New Mexico are all down with pineapple as a pizza topping.
