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:

Pepperoni Pizza

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.

Cheese Pizza
Those who prefer a simple pie with just cheese are easy-going, kind and non-judgmental. They take pleasure in the simple things in life, not taking for granted what they have been given or have.  Cheese-eaters have a lot of friends; they are very loyal and honest and would do anything for them. They often put others before themselves and are often times involved in volunteer work or charities. These people are intelligent and smart, yet they might not have the courage to speak up when necessary. They also may have a fear of change and do not like confrontation.
The Meat Pizza
Those who love eating a pie loaded with any and every kind of meat are very fun, extroverted and love to be the center of attention. If you want to laugh, saddle up next to them because they are often your Adam Sandlers and Ellen Degeneres’ of the world. These people play hard and play even harder. They sure know how to be the life of the party but don’t always know when it is time to get down to work. These meat lovers LOVE to challenge authority and push boundaries which makes them great entrepreneurs. Sometimes, however, their overly zealous personality can be seen as cocky and selfish if taken to the extreme.
Veggie Pizza
People who prefer to eat the pies piled high with veggies are idealistic, humble and tend to be on the introverted side of things. They place great value in the relationships they have with others and are always there for their friends and family. These people like to look on the bright side of things, are always searching for the positives and are very caring and sensitive. They are empathetic and understanding and make for great listeners. These people tend to be very shy at times and place too much pressure on themselves to be perfect and caring too much about what others may think of them.

Supreme Pizza
Those who like a little bit of everything on their pizza are very adventurous, fun and spontaneous. They have a zest for life and love doing everything and anything that is out of the ordinary. Supreme pizza fans are very easy-going, loveable and care-free, always ready for what may happen next. They like the challenge of learning and trying new things and are very out-going. These people are not afraid to strike up a convo with a stranger and often have many friends. They can, however, tend to get bored easily and sometimes have a slight temper.
The Exotic Pizza
People who choose different and out-of-the-ordinary toppings for their pie (such as ahi tuna, pineapple and goat cheese) are sophisticated and worldly. No matter where they are, they are always down to try something new, whether it’s the clothes they wear, the sports they play, or the shows they watch. They’re very achievement-oriented and are natural leaders. They place a great emphasis in work and strive for recognition from others.
