Instagram’s Most Photographed
Pizza is the most photographed and most “selfied” food on Instagram, according to research carried out by an Italian chef.
The study was carried out by Alessio Mecozzi, head chef at the exclusive Castadiva resort on Lake Como. In an attempt to compare culinary trends in different countries worldwide, it shows interesting and unexpected patterns of food consumption.
Pizza was hands down the most photographed food on Instagram. Of the 300 million food photos posted on Instagram, a whopping 17 million of them contain the hashtag #pizza.
Italy was well-represented in the top ten most photographed foods, with many of the country’s other longstanding food ambassadors highly-ranked. Pasta came in third place with 6.3 million shots, while old photo favorite gelato came in ninth place with 1.4 million.
