Pizza is one of the great crowd-pleasers -- serve it for dinner and people are happy. But not everyone feels all the tingly-good feelings that the pizza-obsessed truly feel for this holy trinity of cheese, tomato sauce and crust.

Those "some of us" just might be addicted to pizza. If any of this sounds like you, read on, because you might have a serious addiction to this perfect food. And you are not alone.
