Who will emerge victorious? Let the food fights begin!
For ages, Americans have been debating on which is better, tastier & healthier between Burger or Pizza.
Today we pit these two bitter rivals head to head to determine which has the best bang for your buck!
Round One: Burger vs Pizza popularity
Ever wonder which Comfort food between Burger or Pizza is more popular in US and the rest of the world?
We did a quick dive into Google Keyword Planner to get to the bottom of this. Here’s what we discovered:
- Pizza: 1 million to 10 million average searched month (Worldwide)
- Burger: 1 million to 10 million average searched month (Worldwide)
Its a tie according to the data on Google Keyword Planner.
Nevertheless, that’s one Sh*t load of searches on a monthly basis…but this popularity contest ain’t over yet!
Looking at stats from Google Trends on the other hand, worldwide trends for both search terms right from 2004 till now shows that Pizza far outpaced Burger and is still climbing in popularity.
We found the winner of round one, Foodies 😁!
Winner: Pizza 🍕
Round Two: Is Burger healthier than Pizza?
Considering the fact that these two are pretty much regarded as Junk food, this is going to be a very interesting comparison.
We’re going to be judging these two based on 3 criteria: Fat, Cholesterol & Sodium content.
Pizza: A full size of Pizza has 8 slices and each slice has 26g of fats. This means that all 8 slices account for over 200g of fat!
Burger: A full sized Burger on the other hand has just 29g of fat.
Pizza: Cholesterol content here is 168 milligrammes for 8 slices of Pizza.
Burger: Cholesterol content is just 52 milligrammes for one Burger.
Burger: Has Sodium content of 976 milligrammes.
Pizza: Just two slices of Pizza has a sodium content of 924 milligrammes…imagine what 8 slices contain 😱!
Talk about how difference in sheer size became a serious disadvantage for the Pizza 🧐.
Winner: Burger 🍔
Round Three: Which is more tasty?
Truth is, guys, I can’t answer this one for you. Different people have different definitions of what “tasty” means to them.
Personally, I’ll go for Burger over Pizza any day as far as taste is concerned.
The only way to find out for yourself is to actually eat both and make your decision.
Extra Round: Burger or Pizza for cheat meal?
This question no doubt will have been asked by Gym Sharks.
I think the best way to find out whether Burger or Pizza is best for a cheat meal is to first of all answer the question posed in Round Three.
Cheat meals are all about “satisfaction”. That satisfaction that you know you can eat a full Horse if you very well like it.
It all boils down to how it tastes for you. But if I were you, I’ll just eat both for Cheat Meal days 😁!
The conclusion of my article is as a matter of fact that I have no conclusion as to this is better.
In the end, it all comes down to you. What do you want out of Comfort food?
If all the unhealthiness of Pizza is too much for you to handle, then perhaps Burgers will do the trick.
But if the latter is just way too small and annoying and you want some action in your food, then Pizza is the way to go.
