Have you ever wondered what your favourite pizza topping says about you? Or more importantly, what your friend’s favourite pizza topping says about them? You really should, it’s incredibly eye-opening and completely accurate...Lucky for you guys we teamed up with one of Sydney’s best when it comes to pizza—Fratelli Fresh—to figure out (100% scientifically of course) what your ordering choice says about you, and of course, your mates. We figured this will also help you work out what to order from their delicious new Spring menu #winsallround.
So whether you’re reliable, a straight up baller of a bestie, or just stubborn AF, here’s what your favourite pizza toppings say about you.
Ever the reliable friend, you’ve booked the table for tonight, brought cash in small notes for when it comes to splitting the bill, sit in the same chair, and most likely have parked your car in your favourite, untimed spot. You know that the holy trilogy of pizza toppings—San Marzano tomatoes, basil and buffalo mozzarella—are all you need in this life.
You are stubborn AF. Your favourite flavour is one that 99% of the general population hates. Your love for those salty little fish is met by screwed up faces and loud, passionate exclamations of ‘are you serious’? It makes it hard to go sharesies, but you’re fine with that, because you didn’t want a slice of anyone else’s pizza anyway.
You know what you want and you’re damn right passionate about it. Some might even go as far to say you’re fiery like the spicy slices of salame on the diavola pizza at Fratelli Fresh. Your passion for the perfect slice seeps right through to every other aspect of your life, and, frankly, your friends’ lives, and that of the rest of the general population are better off for having you around (*disclaimer: pepperoni may or may not be this writer’s topping of choice).
You’re a little mysterious, some might say aloof, but the ones who speculate don’t know you from Adam. You know that a white base, like Fratelli Fresh’s Parma, is the perfect rich accompaniment to crowd-pleasers like prosciutto, rocket and Parmesan. No need to speak up though, just order it and watch your mates faces as they dig in. #yourewelcome.
Confident and classy, you like your pizza with a side order of sass. Why say truffle when you can say tartufo? You don’t understand why anyone would simply put mozzarella on their pizza when they could sprinkle on some tasty fontina. You pronounce Target TarJay and have been overheard calling truffle more of a feeling than a flavour, and consider yourself more Italian than most—even though you’re a born and raised Sydneysider with not a drop of Italian in your veins...
You’re the centre of attention and rightly so; everyone wants a slice of you and your pizza. You are the go-to person amongst your crew for life in general, with your sophisticated ways and quick, clever wit. Everyone wants to hang out with you, and because you’re a big-ass legend, you let them.
There’s one in every group. You invite them out for pizza night and they zero in like a supermodel on cheat day to the pasta section of the menu. If we’re being honest, we don’t blame them when there’s lamb ragu with rosemary, chilli and penne on the menu, or a mighty fine chilli and lobster paccheri, but guys, there is a time and a place for tasting your way through the perfect handmade pasta on offer at Fratelli Fresh and it’s not on pizza night.
