Should pineapple be on pizza?

Kia ora koutou,

Over 25,000 students have taken part so far! We’d love to make this our biggest year ever.

Thank you!! The questionnaire is open all year. We would love for you to take part during this term, but whenever it suits you best is fine too.

What’s new:

This data might be great to use for discussion in class! 47% said yes to pineapple being on pizza, 41% said no, and 12% did not know.

  • Note that there are currently some server issues with exploring the 2023 national database. We’ve put in place a temporary solution for the time being so the data viewer should work again (though may be a little slower than normal) – working on getting things back to normal as soon as we can.
  • Top 20 Icecream Flavours
  • See photos of students taking part

We’d love to see your students too!

Unsure when you can take part?
Any time during school hours from Monday – it doesn’t need to be next week if it’s not convenient. The survey is open all year.

Need help preparing?
Please ensure that you have read the essential Teacher’s Guide. All the equipment needed to take part successfully with your students is included in it.

Want to take part over multiple days?
You can divide the activity into two sessions. Use the first session to take the measurements and fill in your data cards. Use the second session to fill in the survey online. The survey itself needs to be completed in one sitting by a student. However, different students from your class can fill it in on different days, for example if you have limited devices or some students are away.
