What is Your Favorite Pizza Topping?
The Great Colorado Pie Fight is only days away, and it's no secret that I'm really excited! I can't wait to sample all the different pizzas that are going to be at our fingertips. I've been thinking a lot about which toppings I would like to see the most at the event; and there are definitely more than a few. It got me thinking, though: Which topping do I want on my pizza the most; not just at the pie fight, but in life?
It seems like such a simple question, and yet it gives me pause. In a perfect world, I would just order meat lover's all the time; but faced with a strictly one-topping pizza, where do my loyalties lie?
Pepperoni is delicious, and I know it's a favorite for many. But is it my favorite? Hmm...nope.
I know a lot of people who just order Canadian bacon on their pizza. While Canadian bacon is tasty, I've always felt it needs other toppings to compliment it. By itself, it's a little one-note.
I've never been a big fan of veggies on my pizza; but if I had to choose, I would pic onions or peppers. Definitely not my favorites, though. Mushrooms are absolutely out of the question. Yuck...
Many people absolutely love fruit on their pizza. You know who you are, pineapple-lovers! Don't get me wrong, I love pineapple too; just not on my pizza. The closest I get to fruit on my pizza is sun-dried tomatoes. But are they my favorite? No...no, I don't think so.
So what is my favorite pizza topping? It's a tough call, and it might depend on my mood; but I'd say more often than not, I would order Italian sausage in a one-topping pizza situation. I've always loved it. Italian sausage is tasty, well-seasoned, and satisfies my carnivorous meat cravings better than any other topping. Sure, I might mix it up and order something different every so often, but I always come back to Italian sausage.
So how 'bout it? If you can only have one topping on your pizza, which topping do you pick? Let me know in the comments!
