Favorite Pizza Toppings?

I'm hosting a pizza party and I'm looking for topping ideas! I'll be making Neapolitan style pizzas: thin crust and limited toppings, like margherita pizza. One of my favorites is pizza dough brushed with garlic olive oil, fresh mozzarella or ricotta, anchovies, and good cherry tomatoes - and technically this might be pushing the toppings for a Neapolitan pizza. If you had to pick max 3 toppings for a pizza, what would it be?

Jalapeno, jalapeno and lots of jalapenos....,n ya I like small pieces of pineapple too...
the combination may sound weird..but I like two different flavors together in a dish.

I'm coming around to pineapple, and I think this sounds good! I probably won't make it for the party because I'm not sure about everyone's spice tolerance, but I'm keeping this one in mind for my family, thanks!

I was going to recommend a throwback favorite until i saw it was 3rd least favorite in usa.
In research, came across info graphic in huff post of 10 favorite pizza toppings in USA.
Maybe go with some of those?

I roast sliced tomatoes, sliced red onions and garlic tossed in some olive oil. That's the "sauce". Top with sauteed broccoli rabbini (some pine nuts if you like) and a blend of provolone and mozz - a winner

i also like anchovies with roasted peppers but not everyone adores the anchovies

and the classic is pepperoni with really thinly sliced onion
