Pineapple pizza is way more popular than you might think with Americans


I’m probably the only person on the planet without a position on the great pineapple pizza debate. I don’t hate the topping, but I’m also not determined to pair my pepperoni with a bunch of fruit. But apparently more than half of Americans are.

protection plan company Cinch Home Services polled 1,000 people on their most controversial home and food debates—pineapple pizza included. The company found that 57% of the United States were completely in favor of Hawaiian-style pizza. That’s not the only split pizza debate either: 52% fold their slice while 48% don’t, and 66% opt for a thick crust over a thin one.

Additionally, pizza preferences have the potential to create relationship tension. Folding pizza was on the list of top five deal breakers for 9% of women and 10% of men, while 9% of men and 11% of women felt the same way about pineapple on pizza,” indicates the report. Don’t stop there: 29% percent argued over peanut butter, with 71% preferring creamy. Peanut butter preference was a major issue for men when it came to dating, but it wasn’t as prominent for women.”

So what else do Americans disagree about in the kitchen? Nearly three in 10 pour their milk before the cereal, while two in five prefer it soggy. And the Coca vs. Pepsi debate claimed 74% on the Coca-Cola side.

We shouldn’t be at all surprised by the results, even if you’re firmly entrenched in opposition to pineapple pizza. The trend has accelerated lately. According to Slice, the trim has been ordered 76% more in the last year alone.
