Ordering pizza for engineers

I need to stop re-asking people about their favorite pizza every time when I order for large groups, the ratios don't change that much. So for the record, here are the answers to the vague "What's your favorite pizza?" question, when asked to a department of mostly electrical engineers (with some mechanical - it's hard to say if this messes up the sample).

ToppingPercentage
Combo meat29%
Pepperoni20%
Supreme14%
Other11%
Cheese10%
Sausage8%
Hawaiian 8%


Other answers include: Taco, hamburger, spinach, green olive, mushroom, veggie.

I'm the one who said veggie.

Hawaiian is pinapple with ham, unless you don't like the ham.

I hadn't thought about the nuanced interplay of flavors. I am not a fan of pineapple, but maybe that's because my major exposure growing up was in the form of ham and pineapple on pizza.

Black olive is the only universally-liked topping in our house, unless you count cheese.

Electrical/Computer Engineering major here: I love veggie pizzas, and meat pizzas, and really almost anything. Margherita. Cheeseburger. White. I even like anchovies. Anyone who's reading this take note: invite me to your next pizza party. I am the most agreeable pizza-nommer there is.

I'm actually surprised so many people agree to some of those just because usually everyone wants something different. Too many options when it comes to pizza. lol. That's why it's never a cheap option in my house. We can't agree on one pizza and by the time we buy more than one we've spent too much.

When I order for a big group, I only give them two options: cheese or pepperoni. Everybody has to pick one or the other.

For the record, my favorite is Hawaiian followed by Meat Combo.

I'm with you on the veggie pizza. I don't like pizza with any sort of meat on it: it can easily turn into grease pizza. FanSee
