I love pizza. Everyone I know loves pizza also. My mother raised an interesting question the other day - 'Do you know anybody who doesn't like pizza?' She couldn't think of anyone, my father couldn't think of anyone and I couldn't think of anybody either. How about you myLotters? Do you like pizza, love it or not like it? Do you know anyone who doesn't like pizza?

My family and I still like pizza but we don't eat it as much as we used to only because my husband manages a Little Caesars pizza shop and has brought home pizza quite a bit in the past five years that he has worked there so we have somewhat became tired of it. We still get it occasionally but we make it a specialty pizza like a supreme because the just plain pepperoni and cheese is too boring.

Too much of a good thing is still too much I suppose. I love lobster and when I was a kid I ordered a WHOLE lobster at a restaurant and it was so much that I couldn't even think of lobster again for years. The same would be true of any food.

It is odd how there seem to be some 'universal' foods that everyone loves. Another example is French fries. I think pizza is liked so much because there are many variations on it. You can rearrange the toppings to make a pizza be almost anything that you like. I have visited some countries that have nearly reinvented the pizza, and I found it to be amazing. For example, in Romania they bake the pizza without sauce and serve the sauce in a little container on the side. They usually offer a sweet sauce and a spicy sauce. This way everyone at the table can flavor their pizza the way they want. I've met folks who didn't like the pizza from a particular place, but I don't think I have ever met a person who hated all pizza in general.

That's so interesting when you visit different cultures like you did. Thank you for sharing that. I almost want to go to Romania just for their version on the pizza. 'Universal' food is right.

I like pizza ABOUT 2 TIMES A YEAR. i GOT BURNED OUT ON IT WHEN i WORKED FOR A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION BECAUSE WE HAD PIZZA DONATED EVERY NIGHT AND NOTHING ELSE. WHEN YOU WORK FOR A NON=PROFIT THERE IS VERY LITTLE MONEY SO YOU EAT WHAT'S DONATED.

When the very first time i introduce pizza to my family, my sister doesn't like it. But, after a few time eating this delicious pizza, she also likes to eat pizza now. About myself, i am a pizza lover..So far, i prefer to buy topping with chicken and seafood flavor pizza..They are my favorites...

For some, it is an aquired taste. For others it's love at first bite. Seafood sounds good. What kind do you use? Is it a seasoning or meat?

Well, you can use seasoning or fresh meat. I usually will go for fresh dory fillet or sardines fish as my topping with added some pepper and spring onion. It sure, will bring out the nice delicious taste in that pizza...

Yep, love pizza. But I have known a person who doesn't. She was a very good friend of mine in high school. It was very odd having her around because pizza was such a crowd pleaser but when she was there we needed back up plans. She really just despised tomato sauce. White pizza wasn't as popular back when I was in high school, but she did try several things and nothing ever won her over.

There will always be plenty of other options : wings, tacos, nachos etc.

Yes, there are plenty of choices, but that wasn't so much the case when I was in high school in the early eighties.

I cannot imagine not liking pizza! It covers the four basic food groups!! However, my daughter began disliking pizza as soon as she became pregnant!
• United States

That's not unusual. Similar things have happened to some of my friends when they were carying their child. But after the baby was born, things changed again.
• United States
27 Apr 09
Oh yeah! I remember the days when I didn't like anything either!! I hope she continues to like pizza after the baby arrives. she won't even stay in the room while we eat pizza right now!

Yummy Pizza - This looks good I can eat it now.
I am Italian and I or my family can't think of anyone who dose not like pizza. I love it how could you not love pizza. If I did know someone that didn't like pizza I ask them why what don't you like about it?
• United States
27 Apr 09
I think that most of the time when people say they don't like it, it's because they don't like a certain ingredient, topping or cheese. I would also be inclined to ask what they don't like about it.

but if they don't like a certain ingredient on it why say you don't like pizza. Go into more detail and say I don't like pizza with anchovies or what they don't like on it.

I have got a few friends which are lactose intolerant, so I guess they don't really like pizza, which made it interesting when we visited pizza hut as it turn out at the time, there was nothing on the menu that did not have cheese with the exception of the salad bar

You know you are right. I do not know of any one that does not like pizza. I love it, it just seems to be one of those food that is for everyone. Mylot even has the pizza category so I would say pizza is loved by all. I think one of the best aspects of pizza is it is so versatile with so many different toppings to suit everyone
• United States
26 Apr 09
I will drink AND eat to that. Just hold the anchovies and throw on extra onion bell pepper and mushroom. I thought the pizza category was very cute myself. Versatility is the key. myLot to success!!!

hihi...i feel that pizza is of the greatest creation in the food industry... i cant believe anyone who will not like pizza at all.. the fun part about pizza is also how people eat it...when we eat pizza, is doesnt matter how messy it gets..we do not use fork and spoons and knifes..we use our hands to eat pizza... and i love the pizza that is full of chesse..although i do not love love love cheese, but if is with pizza, cheese is a must have and the more tht merrier! and another thing about pizza is that, if there is some stuff that i do not eat in the pizza, i will still eat them up...because i do not see a point in removing it from the pizza..therefore pizza is a good way to make me eat food that i do not usually eat.. overall, pizza is nice nice nice!

I like the idea that you don't take the stuff off that you don't like. It never really bothered me when people would do that but but I think it's nice that you keep it on your pizza.

I like pizza very much. I think there are lots of pizzas in our place in Ambrosi. Ambrosi is one of the greatest place with lots of varieties of pizzas. I don't know anyone who doesn't like pizza. I always think it is great to go for pizzas occasionally.
• United States

I agree and I also like different varieties. Enjoy!!!

I knew these Jamaican guys back home in New York who didn't like pizza. I think they were more turned off to the idea of eating something foreign though, and maybe the would've like it if they ate it, I mean who doesn't love pizza? It's my favorite food! I mean real pizza too, not that Dominoes crap!

I've been wanting to try to make my own dough but I'm afraid I'll mess up. I've used the ready made crusts and added my own toppings. That was good.

oh, you don't find someone who doesn't like pizza? See, you find one. I'm not fond of pizza. Well, I should say, maybe I didn't have the real pizza before. I once have pizza in my hometown here in China. After that, I guess it's just for westerners and I'm not quite interested in it. Or I can explain perhaps I'm a little bit traditional Chinese and I get uncomfortable when pizza goes into my mouth. lol. Hope didn't scare you that I'm such a kind of person. It's just the difference of the culture. Like my parents, they don't like the KFC, etc. Time changes. Later, I guess, the world will become smaller and smaller, and you can have the chance to have a taste over thousands of food around the world. Then, people will have their own taste over some special things and, you know, pizza, is just one of them. Happy enjoying your pizza, pal.

You said it right. It all has to do with different cultures. You didn't scare me one bit. I have all the respect for your interests. I think it's great. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Happy myLotting.

Hi, Well I'm a pizza lover. I love many flavors but i prefer all dressed with thick crust. On average, i do buy 12'' pizza a week and eat it all to myself lol. Most of my friends and family also love pizzas. I just don't know anybody who doesn't like pizzas. Although, i prefer ordering pizza from a good restaurant and eat it at home. I think pizza is ma favorite dish.

You sound like me, I get a 12" (or 16") and it's all for me. If it's the 16" it'll take me a few days to finish.

I absolutely love pizza. Now that you mention, I do not know anyone that does not like pizza. I eat it regularly, of course in many variations. I even starting giving my 8 month old tiny pieces of pizza cut up, and he loves it! So that is an interesting point- I cannot think of anyone who doe not like pizza. There are certain pizza toppings that I do not like, but I guess that is a completely different discussion!
• United States
27 Apr 09
That's the way to do it. Start them young. An 8 month old eating pizza and loving it. Let's keep this trend going. You're right about the toppings. I'm not crazy about some of them and that might be another fun discussion.
