There’s a reason pizza is so popular. Humans are drawn to foods that are sweet, rich, fatty and complex. Pizza has all of these components. Cheese is fatty, meat toppings tend to be rich, and the sauce is sweet.

Pizza toppings are also packed with a compound called glutamate, which can be found in the tomatoes, cheese, pepperoni and sausage. When glutamate hits our tongues, our brains get excited we crave more of it. This compound actually causes our mouths to water in anticipation of the next bite.

If you love freshly baked bread and pizza, and you love baking them yourself, then this DIY cob pizza oven is for you!
