Few things are better than football or pizza. Put them together, and you will have yourself the perfect Sunday afternoon! Since these two things prove to be such a sublime match, we decided to literally pair them up by developing this list of quarterbacks and the pizza style they most represent! Whether you choose by player or pizza, find your favorite and figure out the combo best suited to your football fandom.
Tom Brady – Hawaiian Style
There are a couple of reasons Tom Terrific reminds us of this famous pizza topped with ham, pineapple, and sometimes jalapeños. First off, with his perennial lock on a Pro-Bowl selection, the Patriots’ quarterback has spent his fair share of time in The Aloha State, where the Pro Bowl is traditionally held. Secondly, very similar to the idea of using fruit as a pizza topping, he tends to polarize opinion. They’re both either loved or hated, with not a whole lot in-between.
Cam Newton – BBQ Chicken
A healthy dose of southern comfort and charm combined with an unorthodox presentation. It’s not for everyone, but for those who enjoy something a little different, Cam’s your man and BBQ Chicken is your pizza.
Tyrod Taylor – Buffalo Chicken
This one’s somewhat self-explanatory as this QB plays for the Buffalo Bills, yet it still goes a bit further than simple word association. What you have with both Tyrod and this pizza is something you’re always excited to see, while also still aware you’re going to feel the heat.
Carson Palmer – Bianco “White”
This is an old favorite that still delivers, just like the Cardinals QB. No frills here, only the classic fundamentals. Palmer’s been turning heads with his efficiency hitting open receivers. The Bianco “White” pizza has eaters nodding their heads in satisfaction over the efficiency with which it hits the spot for hunger.
Drew Brees – Pomodoro with Meatballs
Another old favorite, except this one gives you a bit more frills. That ricotta cheese provides a more rich experience as does Brees’ arm strength. Then, from time to time you get a bite with more meatballs, like a 400-yard passing game!
Ben Roethlisberger – All Meat
Big Ben’s hearty play reminds us of an All Meat pie. It takes a lot of resolve and a big appetite to take on either of these two. For those with a hunger for high quality, watching Roethlisberger keep a play alive is almost as beautiful a sight as a Sardella’s All Meat pizza being served up in front of you.
Andrew Luck – All Veggie
As the NFL’s resident Mr. Nice Guy, Andrew Luck is known for complimenting defenders after they put a good hit on him. The All Veggie pizza will have you complimenting your own decision-making process for order something both healthy and delicious.
Aaron Rodgers – The Works
The reigning NFL MVP has been on fire so far this season because he has it all. That’s why Mr. Rodgers matches perfectly with The Works pizza. Deep passing, arm strength, accuracy, making accurate reads, pocket presence, throwing on the run – there’s not much more you could ask for in a quarterback. Pepperoni, sausage, ham, bell peppers, hot peppers, mushrooms, olives, onions, pineapple, tomatoes and jalapeños – there’s not much more you could ask for on a pizza!
