During the Q&A section of John Mueller’s 09/17/2021 hangout, one webmaster asked about multiple schema structured data types and whether or not they can add them to one page.
The webmaster was curious about combining FAQ schema and Recipe Schema on one page.
John explained that you can put as much structured data on your page as you want.
He also said that when it comes to rich results, or, rather, what they show in the search results, Google tends to pick just one kind of structured data and focus on that.
If you include many different types of structured data on your page, then Google will pick one and just focus on that one.
He recommends if you want to include a number of different structured data types, you should focus on the type that you want, and don’t combine it with other things.
This discussion occurs at approximately the 23:37 mark in the video.

Can I add multiple schema types to one page? If yes, what would be the best way to combine both FAQ schema and recipe schema on one page?
You can put as much structured data on your page as you want. But for most cases, when it comes to the rich results that we show in search results, we tend to pick just one kind of structured data or one rich result type. And just focus on that.
So if you have multiple types of structured data on your page, then there’s a very high chance that we just pick one of these types, and we show that. So if you want any particular type to be shown in the search results, and you see that there are no kind of combined uses when you look at the search results otherwise, then I will try to focus on the type that you want, and not just combine it with other things.
So ideally, pick one that you really want and focus on that.
