Pizza is one of those foods that works for everyone. Pizza lovers range from kids to adults and from meat-eaters to vegetarians, and everyone in between. There is a choice for every taste bud. Pizza is one of the most versatile meals to order, and that is why it’s the perfect entree for parties and family events. If your family or party is full of meat lovers, the following toppings are sure to please.


If you are a meat-eater and you haven’t tried a bacon topped pizza, then it’s safe to say you are missing out on something special. Bacon adds a crispy, salty, and smoky flavor to this meal that you are sure to love. Vegetable options that taste great alongside bacon are mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and jalapenos.


Pepperoni is the obvious choice for meat-eaters because it’s a classic topping for American pizzas. In fact, despite pizza originating from italian cuisine, pepperoni is an American topping. People love pepperoni because of it’s smoky, slightly spicy flavors. This topping is usually soft, but if it’s sliced thin enough, it can become crispy on some pizzas. Pepperoni is often the go-to for group orders because it can be enjoyed by most any meat-eater.


Ham is another popular pizza topping. It adds a juicy, salted, and sometimes smoky flavor to your meal. It is lower in fat content than other meat toppings and high in protein. Toppings that work well with ham are green olives, bell peppers, and even pineapple. Whether you prefer a thick and chewy crust, or a thin crust, ham is a delicious topping choice for meat-lovers.


Chicken is great option to top your pizza because it goes well by itself with cheese, but also with many other toppings. BBQ sauce can be added to create BBQ chicken pizza, which makes for a sweet and savory, smoky pie that you are sure to enjoy. You can also try a chicken ranch with mozzarella, bell peppers, and a ranch sauce. Tomatoes, garlic, and jalapenos are a few popular toppings that take chicken pizza to another level.


Sausage can come in many shapes and forms and also comes with many flavors. From hot-links and Italian sausage to crumbled sausage, whatever type of sausage you order, it comes packed with flavors and spices that meat-lovers crave. Some toppings that go well with sausage include onions, bell peppers, and jalapenos. You will want to be careful with multiple toppings, because adding too many can make the pizza soggy.


Otherwise known as “Hamburger pizza,” ground beef with plenty of cheese is a delicious, meaty way to add protein to any type of pizza. Popular toppings that go with beef are onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, and extra cheese. Some restaurants go as far as making “Taco pizza” with melted cheese, refried beans, beef, shredded cheese, tomato, lettuce, and picante sauce.
