> Deluxe Chicken Sandwich

This controversial chain – known for its support of anti-LGBTQ measures – tempts many diners to overlook other considerations and order its basic offering: a slab of breaded boneless chicken breast pressure-cooked in peanut oil, served on a toasted buttered bun with dill pickle chips, lettuce, and tomato (a choice of three kinds of cheese is offered at extra cost).

> Pepperoni pizza

Now the largest pizza brand in the United States, Domino’s offers its pies in three sizes, with a choice of five crusts, nine sauces, and 27 toppings, as well as a dozen ready-made combinations (plus chicken dishes, pastas, sandwiches, and more). According to the food delivery app Caviar, among other sources, pepperoni is the nation’s No. 1 favorite pizza topping – and pepperoni pizza gets ordered at Domino’s more than any other variation.

Pizza Hut
> Pepperoni pizza

Edged out of the No. 1 pizza shop by Domino’s a few years back, Pizza Hut is still a strong No. 2. Like its rival, the chain offers some standard pizza toppings as well as the opportunity to customize, but again it’s the tried and true that rules: a large pepperoni pizza is the most popular order here.
