If you didn’t already know, 9 February is National Pizza Day. And yeah it’s a national day in America, but pizza is just the best thing to ever happen to planet Earth. So, we’re making it a thing here in SA too. You’re welcome. To celebrate Pizza Day, you obvs have to make sure you chow down on a pizza with your ultimate fave pizza topping. And what you end up choosing actually says quite a lot about who you are. Want to know more?
Here’s what your fave pizza topping says about you:
You prefer the simple things in life. Like a peaceful bike ride along the beachfront, or a leisurely walk in the wild. You also know what you want, and don’t care what people think. It’s your life and you’ll eat that plain Margherita pizza BECAUSE YOU CAN.

You like a little somethin’ extra. You’re still very much in the safe zone when it comes to pizza toppings and life, but every now and then you’ll opt for whipped cream on your daily Starbucks cappuccino, or pick an even brighter colour next time you go for a mani. Nothing too crazy though.

CHILLI / JALAPENOS
My friend, you’re a wild and adventurous burst of energy. A casual afternoon for you includes 4×4 dune bashing, bungee jumping, and an extreme trick session at Bounce. Even your ‘low-key’ days are spent throwing back a few tequilas at Salsa. You’re crazy and we love it.

Nah bruh. You have no business putting pineapple on anything pizza-based. Please stop. Ok fine, even though you’re wrong, I’ll tell you what this pizza topping says about you. You’re that fun-loving-but-gets-sad-in-winter kinda person. If it was up to you, every day would be scorching hot; which is why you spend your time sipping on cocktails, surfing, and soaking up the sun.

OLIVES, CAPERS, OR ANCHOVIES
You’re sassy, salty, and have a wicked sense of humour. If anyone needs you, they can find you learning from the best and brushing up on your comebacks at Parker’s Comedy & Jive or Cape Town Comedy Club. Hey, you are sweet sometimes… but it may take a tub or two of Paul’s Homemade Ice-Cream before you show it ?

HOLD ON. If you haven’t found out what your avo order says about you yet, make sure you click on the link when you’re done here. Back to normal programming: You live the good life. Because avos are hella expensive! But you also realise the importance of treating yo’self to something nice, like a glass of wine or full body massage every now and then. Plus, you have the ENTERTAINER, so you end up saving some cash dollah anyway.

‘Competitive’ is your middle name. Your friends know that no laser tag battle, go-kart race, or round of bowling is just for fun when you’re around. And when you win – because you will win – the rest of your day is spent celebrating with beer. Lots of beer.

People envy you. They want to be you, because you always take the healthy road. That person I see coming home from an early-morning yoga class, as I’m rolling out of bed and still in my PJs? That’s probably you. And the person who always willingly picks salad over fries? That’s probably you too.

PIZZA TOPPINGS WE HAVEN’T MENTIONED
But wait, my fave pizza topping isn’t on this list – who even am I? Listen, there are so many pizza toppings we haven’t covered here, both weird and wonderful. I could be here for hours. All I CAN say is: If you like the super weird stuff, like peas and tuna; what are you thinking? You should be ashamed of yourself. If you like any other pizza topping, well you’re OK in my books. Keep up the good job.
