The Most Instagrammed Food is…

Posted on by

Step aside, brightly frosted doughnuts. Macarons, your time has passed. Instagram users have crowned their newest “it” food. And it’s especially cheesy.

Vice reports that pizza is the most photographed food on Instagram. The winner was crowned using an Italian study helmed by chef Alessio Mecozzi and public relations firm Klaus Davi. The study wasn’t scientific, and perhaps could have been ever-so-slightly biased toward Italian food. But this is Instagram food porn, not a cure for cancer, so it’s not worth blaming them for lack of rigor here.

The researchers pored through 300 million food photos uploaded to Instagram and found that 17 million of them had the hashtag #pizza added to it. Not surprisingly, New York had the most pizza photos, hogging 6.1 percent of all pizza Instagrams. Sushi ranked second worldwide, followed by pasta.
