Why Does Pizza Taste So Good?

The more glutamate in food, the more flavorful it will be. Animal protein sources like beef, pork, chicken and fish are typically high in glutamate. Tomatoes and aged cheese, the two foods that serve as the foundation of pizza, are also two foods packed with plenty of glutamate!

A typical slice of pizza may have about 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce providing 140 milligrams of glutamate. A tablespoon of Parmesan cheese that could be used to season the slice can provide about 75 milligrams of glutamate! Right when we take that first bite of warm pizza crust topped with tomato sauce and cheese, our taste buds are stimulated by glutamate, and so we’re hooked and want more. Some common pizza toppings like mushrooms can even add more glutamate, enhancing the flavor. Talk about glutamate being the ultimate pizza-marketing tool!

Many culinary professionals also believe that foods with similar flavor compounds pair really well together. Tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, our beloved examples, both contain 4­methylpentanoic acid (a flavor compound) making them a match made in pizza heaven!
