Pizza is the food of the gods. Tell someone you ordered a pizza and there's a 99% chance that person is onboard with the decision. We know it tastes so good, but have you ever wondered just why.

Well, put on your lab coat, grab a pair of goggles and fire up your Bunsen burner because here comes the science.

Okay, you don't need to do all that. In fact, all you need to do is watch this video, which breaks down why pizza is the Regis Philbin of cuisine (you know, because everyone likes it).

You'll learn why pizza is made with mozzarella cheese over any other kind and what exactly the Maillard reaction is.

There's a lot going on here and your head might start spinning from all the info. What, you're getting woozy? You need something to perk you up. How about a nice, tasty large pepperoni?
