Pizza toppings are a very personal matter. Some people swear by sausage and others insist on mushrooms. Still others think the only way to go is a classic Margherita pizza.

From tuna fish to barbecue sauce and emu, pizza toppings vary greatly according to where you are in the world. People eat all kinds of crazy toppings -- from good to bad to very, very ugly. (Corn? Really?)

Whatever your choice of pizza topping, you likely feel pretty strongly about it -- and for good reason. Pizza is one of those perfect foods, which, done well, can give you a glimpse of nirvana, but done poorly, can be one of the worst disappointments you may ever face.

How you choose to play the pizza game definitely says a lot about you as a human being. Read on to find out what your favorite pizza topping says about you.

    You're feisty, you're fun and occasionally you're a little combative. You like to party and sometimes you get a little wild, but it's usually all in good fun.

    You're kind of an odd duck, and you often rub people the wrong way, but you just take a little getting used to. You march to the beat of your own drum, which is a good thing.

    You're kind of boring and no one really knows why you're so popular. You're the guy at the party who shows up and no one knows who invited you, but everyone just assumes you're someone else's friend.

    You're amazing most of the time, but on an off day, you're really unbearable. You're also a lot to handle, so a little goes a long way.

    You're really awesome, but there's one big thing standing in your way: you. If you could only let things go and not be so bitter about everything, you'd be a much happier person. Try getting out of your own way and see what happens.
  • Onion
    You work well with other people and shine in a crowd, but left to your own devices, you're kind of a mess.
