The only reason that Michelangelo was ever our favorite Ninja Turtle was because of his intense love for pizza -- if not, Leonardo would have been the man.

Fellow pizza lovers (of which there are many) automatically like other pizza lovers. Besides just feeding us, pizza has a unifying force that brings us together -- 8 of us at least, depending on how big the pie. One could go so far as to say that this simple Italian dish of bread, tomatoes and cheese could probably inspire world peace. (That's right, we said it.) It's just that good.

Whether you eat it at some fancy Italian spot, get a dollar slice or make it at home, pizza is one food that most people can agree upon. There's even a community of pizza lovers on Facebook. And while we haven't joined it yet, we do love pizza so much that we wrote it a kind of love letter. Oh pizza, how we love you, let us count the ways.
