10 Things Your Favorite Pizza Toppings Say About Your Personality

by Naomi Chadderton

It’s no big secret: I love pizza.

I mean, who doesn’t love this absolutely and deliciously magical combination of bread, cheese and tomato sent directly to us from heaven?

I don’t know who invented pizza, but if I could, I’d go back in time and give him or her a big, fat kiss right on the lips.

God knows this person deserves it.

I could probably go as far as saying I love pizza more than I love most people.

It never disappoints.

Even if you can’t make it out the door, pizza will always come to you.

But more than that, pizza is a great personality reader.

Forget zodiac signs and fortune tellers. Next time you truly want to get to know someone, just take him or her out for a pizza.

How you play the pizza game says a lot about you as a human being.

Here’s what your favorite pizza topping says about you:

1. Margherita

I know what you think I’m going to say.

It's boring and predictable, right?


But not just because this is my personal favorite.

People who order Margherita pizza just know what they want, and they don’t care what anyone else thinks.

They know how to stand their ground.

Or, they could just be a basic bitch.

2. Extra Cheese

These people just DGAF.

3. Pineapple

I’ve got a lot of respect for people who put fruit on a pizza.

I mean, I wonder what went through the mind of the first person to ever put pineapple on a pizza.

They think outside the box, and they’re the dreamers of the world.

They're ones who see things differently.

I imagine Steve Jobs ordered pineapple on his pizza.

4. Anchovies

People who order anchovies are selfish.

They know no normal or sane person actually likes these slimy things that call themselves fish and swim in Satan’s den, so there’s no chance of them stealing a piece of your delicious pizza.

If this is you, please leave this page now.

5. Veggie Delight

The people who order veggie delight pizza are easily influenced.

What they really want is a salad, but they don't want to come off as uptight when all their friends are ordering pizza.

So why don’t they order a salad then?

Because they are fiercely loyal.

They know better than to take you down with them on their road to diet hell or to guilt trip you into feeling bad about the day’s worth of calories you’re about to consume.

So, they also get fat because they love you.

6. Pepperoni

People who choose pepperoni on their pizza want to be more adventurous than they actually are.

Try asking them if they also want chili flakes, and watch them freak out.

They’ll probably break a sweat.

This is because they are lying to themselves.

They actually want a Margherita, but they don’t want to deal with the judgmental looks.

We know what you really want, so just order the damn Margherita!

7. Onions

If you’re looking for the love of your life, do not choose this person.

I repeat, leave the restaurant immediately.

People who go out of their way to ask for extra onions are the reason that romance is dead.

They have absolutely no regard for your feelings.

I mean, who wants to kiss that?

These people are not potential life partners.

8. BBQ Chicken

People who like BBQ chicken pizza are unpretentious and probably American.

They could just order plain, bland, regular chicken, but that’s just not the kind of people they are.

They strive for more in life.

These people will probably grow up to be very successful because they never settle.

These are the kind of people you want to be around.

9. Basil

You do come across the odd individual who will always request extra basil on his or her pizza.

Basil is for classy individuals.

But, they’re probably also quite pretentious, so be careful of what you say in their company.

You should probably scrub up on your local politics before going out to dinner with a basil addict.

You don’t want to look stupid.

10. Meat Feast

The people who order meat feast pizza are confident, and they’re providers.

They’ve been through the meat sweats more times than they can remember, but they’ve always gotten through it.

Each time, they’ve come back stronger than before.

They can pretty much survive anything that life throws at them.

But so can you, as long as you have pizza by your side.
