Did you know that Americans eat around 350 slices of pizza per second? That roughly equates to 23 pounds of pizza per person (or 46 slices) every year, helping to make pizza a $30 Billion industry. Bless the US of A and our obsession with cheesy crust and sauce!
I am proud to say that I am one of those 46-slicers (although to be honest, I could probably do that in a couple of trips to the ‘Hut’). And the best thing about pizza is that there is basically an unlimited amount of choices and options when it comes to choosing your pie. Everything from the type of crust to the sauce and of course the endless amounts of toppings —whatever your pizza-loving heart desires— you can basically make it into a pizza. And when I say anything, I really do mean anything. Some of the more trendy restaurants are now serving their hungry customers pizza topped with mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly and even bacon and eggs —now THAT is what I call thinking outside the pizza box.
Having eaten my share of pizzas over the years (and having witnessed many others do the same), I feel like I know my pizza-obsessives PRETTY well. And as it turns out, your pizza of choice says a LOT about you and your approach to life. Here are some of my observations:
Those who prefer their pie covered in pepperoni (or any other single-meat topping) are fun-loving and well-liked by most everyone. They are dependable and easy-going, trustworthy and kind. Their friends think of them as their go-to for solving problems and giving a helping hand. These people like to have fun, often spending time with family and friends. They would rather stay in with a movie or game night than go out to a big flashy party or club. Though very outgoing after you get to know them, they can be quite shy at first. They also have a tendency to work too hard and often do not give themselves enough credit for the accomplishments they have achieved.
