The Pizza Topping That You Should Try If You're An Aries

Looking up what your star sign says about you is a fun way to spend time, either by yourself or with a few friends. While some people frown at the idea of the positions of the planets and stars having power over your everyday affairs, there are still a significant number of people who like to plan their days with their zodiac signs in mind.

Zodiac signs, divided into 12 sections denoting the 12 months of a year, basically signify which "part of the sky the sun traveled through" when someone was born (via Science ABC). There are various reasons and theories behind why someone may believe in what their star sign has to say about them, some of which include the Barnum effect, priming, confirmation bias, and body language.

A recent poll conducted by YouGov America has found that 27 percent of Americans believe in astrology. It is also interesting to note that "younger American adults are more likely to say they believe in astrology than older Americans are," per YouGov America. Whether you're a hardcore fan of astrology who can't leave your home each morning without knowing what the stars have in store for you that day or you're simply reading up on the personality traits associated with your zodiac sign for light dinner-time conversation, it's all fine. With dinner-time comes pizza and what kind of pizza topping would an Aries love? 

An Aries would enjoy bold flavors

All of Aries' characteristics point toward them being bold and confident. Signified by a ram, Aries are known to be brave and aspiring, diving "headfirst" to tackle even the most taxing situations, reported Allure. Not having a filter, getting angry and then forgetting why they felt that way, and enjoying a dare are also a few traits common to an Aries, according to Co-Star Astrology. This sign can also be described as fiery. 

Have you guessed an Aries' ideal pizza topping yet? Think "piping hot, in both temperature and spiciness," per Amerikanki. You could probably put a big smile on the face of Aries if you served them a pizza topped with pepperoni or spicy sausage. But you won't be limited to just pepperoni or sausage as toppings for the perfect Aries pizza. You could also choose between a spicy chicken pizza with jalapenos or a smoky mozzarella pizza, and everything in between, just as long as you threw in some bold spices.
