Tuna on pizza?!? It’s not really a Minnesota thing, is it?


I just came across a poll that said Minnesotans’ favorite topping like on their pizza is something that shouldn’t even really BE on a pizza in the first place.

national pizza day was back on Feb 9th, but thanks to a comment a friend of mine just made on my social media, I noticed this survey of each state’s favorite pizza topping.

Now, in my home state of Wisconsin, also known as America’s Dairyland, I figured my favorite pizza topping would be…cheese, right? No – according to this Bar Stools Survey, it’s black olives. That didn’t make me too suspicious, seeing as I often ate black olives on pizza before moving here to Minnesota.

But when it came to which topping was Minnesota’s favorite, I did a double take. In fact, it was more of a gag. Because according to that Survey of bar stoolsthe favorite pizza topping here in the land of 10,000 lakes was…


Tuna?!? Who puts tuna on a pizza?!? Have you ever heard of this? I’ve been devouring pizza for more years than I care to admit, and I must say I’ve NEVER heard of tuna as a pizza topping, even though I’ve only been a resident of Minnesota for a decade. If it’s a Minnesota thing, I’ve totally missed it so far.

Curiously, however, the Survey of bar stools offers no evidence or methodology on how they came to the conclusion that Minnesota likes tuna the best on our pizzas. Usually, these surveys are at least based on empirical evidence, like the most searched phrases online or the most tweeted.

But this investigation had no explanation at all. He just listed tuna as Minnesota’s favorite pizza topping. Some other curious favorite toppings included corn in Pennsylvania and carrots in New Mexico. So maybe it was all a joke. What you say?
