Opinions have always been divided about Hawaiian pizza. Now, however, an investigation has brought something surprising to light. So there is only one pizza that is even more popular.

There are foods that people around the world can agree on. Pizza is one of them. It is one of the universal dishes that you really can not go wrong with when you serve it. With one exception: the Hawaiian pizza. When it comes to pineapple on the pizza, there are many who dishonorously straighten their noses. In a German state, however, Hawaiian pizza is currently experiencing a boom. There she even took the bestseller “Salami”, as a survey from “HelloFresh” found out. And how does the rest of Germany view it?

Cookbook size “HelloFresh” asked around 1500 people in Germany what their pizza preferences were. Once again it became clear how big the hunger for Italian fast food is. At least once a month, if not more often, the majority of respondents (94 percent) put the pizza on the table. And almost one in five (17 percent) eats pizza more than twice a month. But which is the most popular?

Pizza salami is still number one

In fact, according to the survey, flavors are not as different as one might think. More than a third of those surveyed have a clear favorite. 35 percent stated that they prefer to eat salami pizza. She is the first choice in all of Germany. All of Germany? No In Saxony-Anhalt, another type of pizza has recently led the ranking: the Hawaiian pizza, which the Italians are dissatisfied with.

With 20.5 percent, Hawaii pizza also took second place in the country in the survey – ahead of tonno, margherita, funghi and ham. “Vegetarian” only follows in 7th place. Diavolo, Speciale and Calzone fill the top 10. The result may come as a surprise to some, but the pineapple pizza is much more popular than critics will admit. But also less popular than their fans think.

This study also shows once again how little consensus there is about the pineapple-ham combination. More than 60 percent of those surveyed consider Hawaiian pizza to be impossible, it is certainly not on their plates. They stated that pineapple had no place on the pizza. And so it remains as it always has been: some love Hawaii, others hate them – and there is nothing in between.

By the way, the most popular pasta recipes are less polarizing. The popular Spaghetti Bolognese took first place in the survey. Almost half of the respondents said that this was their favorite dish. Pasta Carbonara (around 17 percent) took second place, followed by Pasta Arrabiata (13.7 percent).
