Cauliflower pizza was the No. 1 Grubhub order in America in 2019–here's what won in every state

@criene | Twenty20

Food-delivery service Grubhub, owner of Seamless and other food related brands, released its Year in Food report, revealing the top orders placed on the company's platform across the country in 2019.

The majority of top foods ordered this year were vegetarian or vegan, Grubhub says (seven of the top 10 compared to three in 2018).

Cauliflower pizza took the top spot overall, being the No. 1 order of the year and climbing up from seventh place in 2018.

Spicy Brussels sprouts followed cauliflower pizza on the top 10 list, then portobello mushroom empanadas, black bean and sweat potato tacos and miso pork ramen.

Each state across the country had its own preference, too.

Grubhub's findings were based on orders from over 21 million users on its platform. The delivery service analyzed order trends from January to November 2019 and compared results to the same time in 2018, according to the company.
