How Pizza Brings People Together, Bronx, New York

A popular comfort food, pizza is at the center of many bonding experiences at home, restaurants, or in the workplace. A versatile dish that allows people to customize their order, pizza has a knack for making people happy and creating unity. If you’re hosting an upcoming gathering, here are some reasons to consider ordering this dish to break the ice and bring your guests together.

Top 3 Ways That Pizza Helps People Bond

1. It’s Everyone’s Comfort Food

What’s not to love about pizza? It offers ample carbs, gooey cheese, tangy tomato sauce, or any of your favorite ingredient combinations. Whether you like yours with fresh veggies, sausage, or anchovies, you can customize a pizza to include flavors you love. This may explain why pizza ranks as America’s preferred comfort food, with chocolate coming in a distant second.

2. It Increases Trust

PizzaWhen ordering takeout, it can be tough to find a menu to accommodate diverse tastes. That’s why so many people default to pizza to feed groups, since you can remove ingredients that trigger allergies or don’t work with dietary restrictions. With friends or in the workplace, this dish also allows people to share their food with others, which is a known way to build trust and increase cooperation.

3. It Showcases Personality

Since pizzas are highly customizable, they often display peoples’ values on a plate. If you’re concerned about your health, you might order a pizza that’s light on cheese but packed with veggies. If you enjoy unique flavors or are more adventurous, you may want to order a version inspired by chicken marsala. Pizzas are conversation-starters, allowing people to experience each other’s favorites and share their opinions in a fun, lighthearted way.
