Who doesn't like pizza??

However you slice it, there's nothing quite like a piping hot pizza - and despite the endless exciting flavour combos at our fingertips, it turns out Kiwis prefer to keep it simple.

No, we aren't talking Hawaiian, with its ham, cheese and pineapple topping, and dad's favourite meat lovers also isn't reigning supreme.

And we can absolutely promise you that Bill English's controversial spaghetti pizza, has also not topped the charts.

According to Domino's, it's the humble pepperoni that has taken out the top spot as the most popular pizza flavour in New Zealand.

The traditional tomato sauce, cheese and salty pepperoni combo may be one of the most classic flavour combos of them all, but it's still the go-to for many of us.

In fact Domino's stores alone deliver over 10,000 pepperoni pizzas to Kiwis every day.

That means we eat our way through a staggering 275 metric tonnes of pepperoni every year - or 5,288kg a week!!

And the flavour has proved popular with vegans too - yes you heard correct. Vegan and vegetarian pizza lovers got a slice of the action last year when Domino's introduced a plant-based pepperoni pizza to its menu.

BRB we're hungry now...
