Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to confirm that size does matter.

Let me tell you something: I'm not sure what the science is behind this theory, but a small cheese pizza and a large cheese pizza, from the same place, taste differently to me.

Please trust the weirdness of this, especially from someone like myself who has worked in multiple pizza joints over the years. The dough is the same, as is the sauce and the cheese, but for some reason, the size of the pizza determines its taste.

While scrolling on Instagram, I came across a poll from my friend Amanda Amaral, who is convinced that a small and a large cheese pizza from the same location taste differently and I'm in total agreement.

According to her public poll, out of 100 participants, about 75 percent of voters claimed that this is in fact true, the taste is different. Only 25 percent said that they taste no difference between the sizes.

My only thought on why this is happening to our tastebuds is either psychological or simply because the portion size cooks quicker, allowing the ingredients to settle onto smaller surface areas instead of spreading out.

Either way, the concept is strange but equally delicious at the same time.

The next time you order a pizza, get yourself a small cheese pizza and a large cheese pizza and try to determine for yourself if you notice anything different between the two other than the number of bites per slice.

Great, now I want pizza, but specifically the gooey, cheesy type from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. As weird as that sounds, I'm pretty sure I said what most readers are thinking right now.
