There are a few reasons that pizza is one of the most popular dishes in the world. Not only is it the culmination of some of the best foods—bread, sauce, and cheese rarely steer you wrong—but its very design encourages sharing with others.

It may sound silly, but sharing a pizza can really provide a sense of belonging, and everyone deserves to feel like they belong from time to time.
