Let's get something clear. Pizza is important.

The only thing second to importance in pizza is the toppings that go on said pizza. And this is where most people tend to fundamentally disagree.


u/NuclearWinterGames asked:

What is the most underrated pizza topping?

Here were some of the answers.


A Little Leaf Makes A Big Difference

This is how my husband orders pizza for me. Not even kidding.

"I'd like a cheese pizza with basil. Extra basil. And then when you think you have enough, reach in and clear out that container. Then head to the storage room, grab all of the basil and add it. When you're done with that, head back to the garden and pull the whole plant. Then go next door and grab any of their basil. When you're done, you're about half way there."

I love him.

Aepples And Banaenaes

Banana peppers. Oh man a thin crust pizza with italian sausage, green olives, and banana peppers is the best!!

Extra Salt

Anchovies get a lot of reflexive "eww, gross" reactions from people who probably have never had a pizza with anchovies, but they're great.

Fungus Yum-gus

Mushrooms, every time I say that mushrooms are my favorite toppings I get a "eww" as I reply but I don't know why. They're so good.

A Little Extra Crunch

Basil? Onions? Chicken? None of these are underrated. 99% of places will have these options. The only guy below with a real underrated one was the potato guy.

A real answer is roast corn. A lot of it too. Cheese, a little onion and pepper and a crap ton of corn.

Spicy But Less Greasy

Salami. The flavor isn't as strong as pepperoni, but still definitely there. More importantly it doesn't curl up and get burnt on the edge with a pool of grease in the middle.

All Parts Of The Cow

I dunno about underrated exactly, but green chili is an excellent topping that's hard to find outside parts of the southwest. Potato is definitely underrated, although tater tots specifically are meh. Most underrated, in my opinion, is cow tongue, which is amazing on a pizza.

Mm Good

Pineapple, apparently. I'm sad for those of you who have never had a good Hawaiian pizza.

For those of us who have... spinach! Saw it on the Pizza Hut web app and decided to try it. I used that, olives, red peppers, and meatballs with the Balsamic drizzle. Called it Pizza Caprese and it was amazing! Got weird looks when I picked it up, but the second time, I told then they should try it sometime.

A Little Bit Of Pasta

Macaroni

Toppers Pizza has a macaroni pizza that's the best damn thing you'll ever have. Especially if you get the buffalo chicken mac and cheese tall boy. Truly superb.

Also, Kwik Trip has surprisingly good food. Their mac pizza is pretty good, just add hot sauce. They also have a bacon mac pizza but it's harder to find.

More Kinds Of Spicy

Sausage. Not that people don't like sausage on pizza, but in Massachusetts out by Cape Cod, where there's a huge Portuguese community, a favored topping for pizzas (not to mention filling for omelets) is chourico, and its less-spicy cousin, linguicia. I don't doubt there're a lot of other local toppings the general public doesn't know about.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
