Spinach coming out on top(pings)
Spinach is leading the race to become Ireland’s favourite pizza topping, beating old favourites such as pepperoni in the Milano Create Your New Favourite competition!
Six weeks into the race to find a new pizza in celebration of Milano’s 20th anniversary, figures are indicting that traditional meat based pizza toppings are out with veggie options topping the polls.
It has long been known as the vegetable that gave Popeye his bulging muscles, but did you know that spinach is also good for the brain? Recent studies found that people who regularly ate spinach and other leafy greens stayed sharper for longer with researchers at the Rush University in Chicago advising that consuming one to two portions a day, could potentially protect your brain from Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
The same popularity is not being enjoyed by other members of the green veggies family, with mushy peas and Brussel sprouts coming in last when customers are choosing their favourite pizza toppings.
The Milano Top Ten Poll Toppers:
3. Caramalised onions
4. Buffalo mozzarella
6. Black olives
7. Goat’s cheese
9. Slice red onions
