When it came to pizza nights at my house growing up, there was always the inevitable argument over what topping we would get.

Sometimes one of us would win out, while other times we would compromise and split the pizza half-and-half.

But through all those topping disputes, it never dawned on me that our topping preferences might actually be saying something about our personalities.

According to Medical Daily, “Eating preferences can be a doorway to your personality.” This makes sense since taste is so intricately connected to the central nervous system, which is responsible for everything from our emotions to our behavior.

And just as the way you eat can reveal secrets to your personalitywhat you eat can say just as much!

Scroll through this exclusive list below to see exactly what your favorite pizza topping says about you. And if you are a fan of more than one topping, you may just possess the personality elements of both.

I was actually stunned by how accurate my description was. I may never think about pizza night the same way again!

What did your topping preference reveal about you? Were your results as accurate as mine? Let us know in the comments.
