The supreme pizza, or as we call it here in the Northeast, pizza with the works, is the ultimate pizza and features six classic toppings. The supreme pizza is traditionally topped with pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, mushrooms, green bell peppers, and onions. But not all of them are the same and some restaurants make theirs slightly different.
Supreme Pizza Toppings Around The World
We’ve been fortunate enough to eat pizza all around the world and some pizzerias include olives, while others include bacon for some extra flavor. The definition of supreme pizza is quite different depending on where you’re located and the only standard is dough, sauce, and cheese.
While we were in Italy, their version of the supreme pizza had artichoke, eggplant, burrata cheese, prosciutto, and sausage. Over in Australia, meanwhile, a supreme pizza can include pepperoni, “rasher” bacon, peppers, ground beef, mushroom, pineapple, and onion. So it truly depends on your local flavors.
Local Supreme Pizza Toppings
While we include mushrooms on our version, they aren’t always included. In fact, one of the only fixtures we noticed over and over again were bell peppers. Some local pizzerias here in New Jersey include pepperoni, ham, pork sausage, and beef, plus peppers, onions, and olives. In other words, it was our version of a meat-lovers pizza, but with extra toppings added.
What Toppings Are on a Frozen Supreme Pizza?
If you’re looking for frozen meals, toppings on supreme pizza are a little more stripped down. We ran to our local grocery store and most frozen options only have pepperoni, sausage, bell peppers, and onions.
Common Supreme Toppings
So despite the many differences in toppings, there appears to be a commonality: a hearty combination of both meat and vegetables needs to be represented. It wouldn’t be a supreme pizza without a large amount of topping variety. So unless you are ordering from a menu with a description, you might want to ask what comes on their version of a supreme pizza.
Regardless of your favorite flavors, the supreme pizza has something for everybody. It truly caters to meat lovers, veggie lovers, and those of us who like a little bit of both. So give your local pizzeria a call and order a supreme pizza and let us know what comes on it.
