It’s All About The 3 ‘P’s
Pepperoni Toppings Top The List

Did you guess it? Pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping in Canada, clocking up on average 3,600 searches over the past 12 months. Coming in at second place, 2,900 searches for anchovies on pizza still manage to just pip Hawaiian pizza to the post.

Pineapple Isn’t Taboo In Canada

In fact, Canada is the home of Hawaiian Pizza! Sam Panopoulos, who was born in Greece, created the first Hawaiian pizza at a restaurant in Ontario in 1962. Whilst the pairing of tangy pineapple with smoky ham might have you reeling at the clashing combination, pineapple was the third most popular pizza topping in our analysis with 2,900 average monthly searches.

Pickle Pizza? Meet The New ‘Flavour Of The Month’

We can’t keep up. Move over pineapple pizza! Salty pickles is the latest controversial pizza topping choice, according to Canadians searching online for their next pizza fix. Rising in popularity over the last six months, more Canadians searched for ‘pickle pizza’ than ‘Hawaiwan pizza’ last November. Simply swap the tomato base for garlic dill sauce, bake in a layer of Canadian bacon, then pile on pickles and mozzarella cheese. This choice is bound to shake up taste buds and get tongues wagging. Keep an eye out for this crafty pickle concoction on a menu near you- it’s currently sitting at #9 out of Canadian’s Top 10 Pizza Toppings list.
