When you think about it, pizza is a bit of an enigma. On one hand, it’s a universally beloved food. Even the worst of enemies can come together for a slice, under the right circumstances. The simple combination of crust, sauce, and cheese is a uniting force for mankind.
But on the other hand, even the slightest variation on this beautiful peacemaking cuisine can tear us apart. Those variations, otherwise known as toppings, are cherished with as much passion as pizza itself. We all have a favorite topping or topping combination, and we will defend them to the death. And if a loved one strays outside of our acceptable toppings, we may see that person in a whole new, terrible, terrible light. Friends become enemies. Family members become strangers. Co-workers are ignored with an entirely new intensity. And it’s all because they picked the wrong thing to put on their pizza.
A lot is on the line when you discuss pizza topping preferences. But even with that knowledge, CT Boom’s staff decided to risk everything – our friendships, our working relationships, our ability to look one another in the eye – and publish our top 5 topping choices for all to see. Prepare yourself, things are about to get feisty.
