Why are pizza toppings so boring in the USA?
Most of the the pizza places, especially chains, don't offer some variety when it comes to topping choices.
There are so many possibilities, from grilled eggplant and zucchini, to corn, from prosciutto to turkey meat, from arugula, to asparagus,
Is it because the average customer does not like changes? Or is it a matter of taste?
I find pizza boring this way, how about you? What would you like on your pizza?
Eh wut? Oh, I see.
Yeah, you kinda have to find a nice sit down Italian place to have advanced level topping options for pizza. At least that is my experience. I live in Texas though, and we're not known for having lots of Italians or Italian restaurants. Our Italian restaurants are all ran by Albanians. Texans don't know the difference between Albanians and Italians. Well, come to think of it, you'd have a hard time looking at them and knowing the difference.
Turns out I've nothing useful to say here. Lets just forget this whole thing ever happened.
lol, for being someone with "nothing useful to say" your comment made me laugh. Thanks! Maybe because I'm Italian, maybe I look like an Albanian, who knows? But I love pizza, though I've never have pizza in Texas, so I don't know what I'm missing
Do people ever put lamb on pizza? I'm for all of it, personally, except the anchovies. I tried that once, and did not like it. In Texas we often put jalapenos on pizza, which I figure is not traditional, but it is good!
Well, the "especially chains" are going to appeal to the broadest customer base in order to attract a lot of customers. I don't expect franchise businesses to appeal to my particular quirky tastes.
I like your "possibilities".. but I'd say if that is what you want... make your own pizza with your particular favorite ingredients.
It could take a lot of work, but it might be a winner.
Hi Rochelle, you are right the chains target a broad base, and I get that. I have tried making my own pizza, but good dough is the secret to a great pizza, and home-made dough baked in electric oven just does not cut it for me. Boy, I'm picky! lol
Growing up in Manhattan, I prefer the original pizza toppings. You can look them up. And I am happy with just having a cheese pizza. Sausage and peppers and some other basic is all I need or want.
Don't put chicken, pineapples, and other ingredients because it is no longer a pizza. It is definitely a food item but it transcended pizza into something else.
I like traditional foods to remain traditional, that is why they are called traditional.
Knock yourself out with making your "pizza" not boring, that is your choice.

What are your favorite pizza toppings and preferred crust?What toppings do you usually get on your pizza? I like pepperoni, mushrooms, bell pepper and cheese of course. I used to get black olives, but sometimes they taste to salty. For the crust, I like it thinner and toasty.
