About This Quiz

What's more personal than one's taste in pizza? Answer: nothing. Both in Italy and in the United States, people take their pizza very seriously. If you put Canadian bacon on your pie, some people will explode, saying that it's the most inauthentic thing they've ever heard of. Other people get annoyed if you dare to offer them deep-dish pizza, saying that it's (gasp) overrated. 

One thing's for sure, though: Your pizza preferences almost certainly stem from the culture you grew up in. New Yorkers see pizza very differently from Midwesterners, who in turn might not even recognize the kind of gluten-free kale and butternut squash pizzas you'll find in California. If you share your true pizza desires with us — i.e., the kind of pizza you eat when you're alone, not what you order at a schmancy restaurant when you're having dinner with your Italian-American boss — we think we can pinpoint exactly which state you hail from.
