When Jody Avirgan tweeted a photo of his toddler daughter’s euphoric reaction to her first taste of pizza on March 3, he probably didn’t anticipate it going viral.
“My daughter just tried pizza for the first time,” the host and producer of the FiveThirtyEight podcast wrote. In the image, his little girl triumphantly raises her arms with her eyes closed, sauce spread all over her face, as she joyously savors her first encounter with the the beloved cheesy flatbread dish.
With over 1,400 comments, 63,000 retweets and 262,000 likes since pouring in on Avirgan’s post, the Twitterverse is championing the tot’s sweet reaction and sharing their own love stories with the dish.
“Imagine when she tries bacon,” one user wrote. “Imagine when she tries bacon on pizza,” another clapped back.
