There's a lot of debate when it comes to the proper way of topping a hot dog. Some hot-dog fans are vehemently against tainting your dog with ketchup, others (like some of the editors at Taste) kind of like it. Some hot doggers would take a bullet for Chicago-style dogs, and then there are those who would only ever eat a New York hot dog.

The hot dog community is a passionate bunch. And while it would be nearly impossible to bring these varying opinions to a general consensus, we're pretty certain that there are some ways everyone can agree that a hot dog should not be topped.

Behold, the worst hot dog toppings, in no particular order (since they're all equally terrible):

Pizza and hot dogs should never be united.
