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.

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.

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
