Rainy Day Blues? Let Pizza Cheer You Up!
No matter how much you love the rain, there are times when it will leave you feeling down. Now that the rainy season is here, you can expect to have the rainy day blues more often than usual. What can you do to cheer yourself up? Social media can only do so much, and it won’t be much help if your friends aren’t online, anyway. Here’s an idea: Why don’t you order a box of pizza?
Pizza is the kind of food people just can’t seem to resist. Whenever someone is feeling blue, try asking them to have pizza with you. You’ll see them perk up in no time at all! So if you feel a little down in the dumps, all you really need to do is have some pizza! And you don’t even need to step out of your house, since most pizza places now have delivery services.
Best Pizza Flavors to Cheer You Up
Okay, now that you have an idea how to save yourself from the rainy day blues, the next decision to make is what pizza flavor to order. If you have a personal favorite, then of course, that would be the most likely to perk you up. Otherwise, you’d do best to choose from among the following:
This is the simplest pizza flavor of all, just tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese on top of the dough. But if you’re a cheese lover, then it should be enough to get rid of your melancholy. If you want, you could even order double cheese, thereby enjoying a doubly thick layer of luscious mozzarella cheese on your pizza. Or you could go all-out and order a four-cheese pizza, which has four different kinds of cheese.
This is another classic pizza flavor that’s an all-time favorite of most people. It is simple, with only tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni as toppings, but it is enough to cheer up even the saddest of individuals. It will be sure to get you and anyone else who’s with you out of the rainy day blues. This flavor is especially tasty on a thin crust.
There’s a bit of disagreement regarding this particular pizza. Some say “Napoletana” or “Neapolitan”; regardless of the way you say it, it is a particular way of making pizza, rather than a flavor. However, there are pizza places that have Napoletana as one of their pizza flavors. Considering that you’re already feeling down, you shouldn’t have to concern yourself with the question of whether it is, indeed, a flavor or a manner of making pizza. What’s important is that it is a mouthwateringly delicious kind of pizza that’s sure to make you smile after the first bite.
The name of this pizza flavor speaks for itself; it is the ideal flavor for hard core non-vegetarians. It is also a good choice for someone who wants their spirits lifted because in most cases, when we decide to turn to food for comfort, we tend to crave meaty concoctions. Different pizza places may have different names for a meatlover’s pizza, but you’ll be sure to know one when you see one. It usually has tomato sauce, cheese, ham, pepperoni, ground beef, chicken, and other types of meat as toppings.
5. Quattro Stagioni
If you’re home with your siblings or friends and you’re all feeling a little glum due to the rain, then you could all do with some pizza! You may have different preferences as regards the flavor, and rather than ordering several boxes of pizza, why not order a single box with four different flavors? That is essentially what the Quattro Stagioni is: four pizzas in one! Again, the four flavors included will differ from one pizza place to another, but many pizza places actually allow you to decide which particular flavors to include. You may be asked to pay an extra fee for the freedom to choose your flavors, but hey, relaxing with your siblings/buddies while munching on your favorite comfort food should be well worth the extra cost, right?
We may not know exactly what it is in pizza that helps to lift our spirits and bring back our good mood, but what’s important is that it does cheer us up when we’re down. So, the next time rain starts to pour and you start feeling sad, you know whom to call (no, it’s not the ghostbusters). Just remember, take everything in moderation. You only want to cheer yourself up, not suffer from indigestion, right? Happy munching!
