meyer is right, but considering that the pizza that is famous and popular around the world is most closely related to the variety first made in Little Italy in New York City, if anything, Neapolitan "pizza" ought to be in quotation marks. and Lumi is also correct: Greeks were making pizza-like food and calling it pita a long time before Naples (which was settled by Greeks, Neapolis, "New City") mispronounced it.

Level 62
Dec 8, 2017
American pizza is usually bread, tomato sauce, and cheese, so calling tomato a topping at this point is like calling the bread of a sandwich a topping. This also means that since pizza is already bread, sauce, and cheese, a plain pizza is a pizza without toppings, a.k.a. a cheese pizza.
+15
Level 81
Jun 2, 2018
If I heard of "tomato" listed as a pizza topping I would be thinking of fresh sliced or diced tomato added on top of the cheese. Or maybe sundried tomatoes. Not tomato sauce. Though I've had lots of pizza without tomato sauce before, and in lots of places both inside and outside of the United States.
+1
Level 66
Dec 2, 2020
Yes, I've seen this on pizza at brick oven places. The tomato sauce is obviously implied, and you can get tomato slices or sundried tomatoes as a topping.
+5
Level 61
Dec 8, 2017
Because in America, a "cheese pizza" and a "plain pizza" mean the same thing. Just pizza sauce and cheese, nothing else.

In New York, if you want bread, sauce, and mozzarella cheese, you order a plain pizza (or a plain pie). In Los Angeles, that same food is called "cheese pizza". It's kind of like how quesadillas in Mexico City don't necessarily have cheese in them.

Level 47
Dec 2, 2020
But salami isn't the number two pizza topping. It's all types of sausages. Salami itself would fall way behind, at least here in the States most of the time by sausage ton pizza hey mean Polish or Italian sausage (neither of which should be accepted).
+1
Level 78
Dec 2, 2020
In my area where pizza from pizza chains is all that's available, sausage on pizza usually means small, frozen, suspicious-looking brown ovals that are probably more likely flavored soy or TVP than actual meat. They look the same as the beef toppings except they add beef flavoring to those. I usually just pick up a cheese pizza and add my own toppings at home.

Pepperoni is an American type of salami with distinctive spices and flavorings. The creator chose to Americanize the spelling - I wonder if he was making a play on the peppery spices he added. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pepperoni

The servers at the Italian restaurants I frequent understand English and know the difference between bell peppers and the Italian word for them, pepperoni. Incidentally, a friend sold his old, 900-lb. boar hog recently at a local sale barn for six cents a pound, nearly nothing. My friend asked the buyer what he planned to do with the old hog. The buyer replied, "Take him back to Chicago and turn him into pure gold. He'll soon be pepperoni." Now I know why they have to add so many extra spices to pepperoni.

If we're talking about the world outside of Italy then why would we be using Italian terminology? The stuff they eat in Naples and call pizza is not what the rest of the world thinks of as pizza- that particular foodstuff was invented by Italian immigrants living in New York City.
+6
Level 63
Aug 3, 2018
I live in the UK and I have eaten both Neapolitan and New York-style pizza, both sold as pizza (I am being quite vague here but I am going off your comment below explaining the difference, mainly because I'm fairly sure I've also had things in between). I would call both of these things "pizza", and accept that within one type of food there can be significant variants. But I agree that especially as pizza was popularised from the USA it is perfectly valid to call pepperoni (the sausage) pepperoni.

+9
Level 70
Dec 8, 2017
Tomato sauce and mozzarella is the default, what's called a "cheese pizza" or a "plain pizza" here. Basil usually goes in the sauce unless you're ordering pizza margherita. At least we don't put marinated artichokes on our pizza like the revolting "pizza quattro stagioni" that's popular all over Italy. And "pepperoni" with two Ps is the name of a dry salami here, the little peppers you would call "peperoni" with one P in Italy are called "pepperoncini" here.

I was about to like your comment, but artichokes on pizza are amazing so I can't.

Level 81
Dec 8, 2017
Italians think of these things as toppings because.. well... go to Napoli and see. Their "pizza" is a glob of undercooked dough, with some drops of tomato sauce here and there, a few puddles of half melted mozzarella, and maybe a spring of basil in the middle (that is somehow 80% more greasy in spite of containing 100% less meat). The pizza that the other 7 billion people in the world think of when they want pizza- the kind with a golden semi-rigid crust, with tomato sauce and cheese evenly distributed across the surface as a foundation not as a topping, that can easily be held in one hand and not tumble all over the table making a mess even though it's stacked with savory toppings- *that* pizza... that was invented in NYC before becoming popular worldwide. Neapolitans didn't invent pizza. Neither the world famous version today nor even its predecessor; the Greeks were putting toppings on flat bread and calling it "pita" for centuries. Pita. Pizza. The Italians just mispronounced it

... is this because I said 7 billion? That wasn't exact enough for you? Well the world population is 7.5 billion not 7.6 and excluding the population of Italy it's only 7.44 billion so we can safely round down to 7. Or did you mean to say that Italy has 60 million people in it and missed by an order of magnitude? Either way I win at being needlessly pedantic.

I have good memories of shrimp pizza. When my husband was in nursing school he worked nights and weekends delivering pizza. There was someone in the country club area of town who used to prank his neighbors by ordering shrimp and anchovy pizzas for them. He'd give his own phone number for confirmation, but give their address for delivery. They would always refuse delivery of them. At the end of the night the workers could take home any pizzas which had been sent back. No one ever wanted the shrimp and/or anchovy pizzas, so my husband was happy to take all of them. I became quite adept at picking off the toppings and finding other uses for them. Even though money was very tight our family enjoyed those occasional seafood meals which came free of charge.

Funniest thing to me is that in many countries they will sell "American" burgers or "American" pizza and put on things that Americans would never... Like in Croatia I think there was this burger shop that had a "Texas Burger"... which was an open-faced sandwich with toppings on it I'm sure nobody in Texas has ever consumed on a hamburger before.

Probably Europeans feel the same way when McDonald's come out with it's "Le French" burger. :D

Aug 3, 2018
American pizza generally comes with tomato sauce by default. Though you can get sliced tomato as an extra topping, it's kinda redundant so it's not common enough to make the top 10. And like kalbahamut said, mozzarella is the default cheese for pizza so it's already up there, and anchovies are nasty.

Salami and sausage are two distinctly different foods.

To an American, the word "sausage" is much less broad a term than it is to a European. Most Americans would not consider hot dogs, frankfurters, kielbasa, bratwurst, bologna, or salami, among other things, to be "sausage." I think most Europeans would. To an American a sausage is what might be called in the UK (I think?) a "breakfast sausage"... usually small, cylindrical with rounded ends, dark brown, highly textured... looks kinda like a half dried turd. Made with pork, salt, pepper and sage. Inside it is a solid brown color throughout. On pizza it is typically broken up in to smaller spherical pieces with rough edges. That's what Americans would think of as "sausage" as a pizza topping. Salami, pepperoni, and so on would be in a different category.

In the UK I would say that the archetypal "sausage" is what you describe, but I would (it would generally be considered correctly) identify that salami was a sausage. If you were offered a sausage in the UK or ordered one in a restaurant it would be like you describe or sometimes similar but curled into a spiral (a Cumberland sausage). I imagine that in continental Europe it is different, although English is not predominantly spoken there and so they will have different words.

In my area "breakfast sausage" can be one of three things - link sausages, which are the ones Kalba described - they are small, about the size of my forefinger, - or it can be sausage commercially packaged in plastic rolls which are sliced crosswise into patties before frying. Also available is country sausage which is bulk ground pork mixed with salt, black pepper, red pepper, and sage by the butcher and sold by the pound in styrofoam flats covered in plastic wrap in the meat case. It is made by hand into patties before frying. Country sausage usually has a higher fat content than the better brands of roll-type sausage such as Jimmy Dean or Tennessee Pride. Country sausage has a different taste and texture than the ones that come packaged in the plastic rolls because it is ground more coarsely and doesn't have MSG or preservatives added to it.

Pepperoni is an American variety of salami. If anything I believe salami should be accepted for pepperoni. But I wonder what the sausage topping includes. For me as a German pepperoni and ham are sausages. Maybe the problem is that Germans sometimes differ between "Wurst" and "Würstchen" which both translate to sausage. "Wurst" however is salami, ham, boloney... (something that is often eaten in slices) and "Würstchen" are frankfurters, wieners, bratwurst (something that is usally cooked or grilled as a whole). That's not some set rule though.

I was surprised that beef didn't make the top five. It's the most popular topping around here - usually with onions and sometimes black olives or mushrooms. It's always on Mexican-style pizzas, too.

Chicago "pizza" can be tasty but in its most extreme form is more like a quiche than what most people think of as pizza. Neapolitan pizza can be alright, too, in moderation, but is more like grease soup served in a half cooked breadbowl than what most people think of as pizza. New York style pizza is what billions around the globe are thinking of when they think of pizza. Does that make it more "real?" Probably not. But it is what the vast majority of people mean when they say the word.

I really don't understand the hatred for pineapple on pizza. I'm not a fan of it, but surely it's just personal preference. Do people get this animated about a particular thing they put on their toast, or in a sandwich? Why does it bother you if someone is eating something you personally don't like?

(And if you think that fruit on pizza is the reason why it is wrong, you put tomato on a pizza, and that is technically a fruit, so should you stop having tomato on your pizza?)
