Best topping for authentic NYC pizza?

There are several postings about where to get the best NYC pizza, but I want to know what locals prefer to top the pie with. Is it cliche' to order plain pepperoni?

OK, don't listen to these lunatics.

A real New Yorker always orders ham and pineapple on their pizza.

OK, don't listen to me - you may not survive your way out the door of the pizzeria if you order that!

I'm with the plain crowd.

Wow, I never would have thought plain would be the most popular. When we went to Chicago and tried their deep dish pizza the more toppings the better. It only stands to reason that NY thin crust would be the exact opposite. I know, I know, it's sacreligious to compare the two : )

Thanks for the great responses!
