Build Your Perfect Pizza and We'll Tell You Which Hogwarts House You Belong In
by Zoe Samuel


Getting into Hogwarts, that famous school of witchcraft and wizardry, is not like applying to community college. Getting in is a testament to one's latent magical abilities and personality. The four houses of Hogwarts were created to give structure and scope to students hoping to become their best selves. 

Gryffindor is the house of the stout of heart. Slytherin is the house of the ambitious. Hufflepuff is the house of the kind. Ravenclaw is the house of the curious. While many wizard hopefuls could fit into more than one, it is the dominant personality trait that determines which house one should join.

Similarly, pizza is a deeply personal thing, dictated by many personality traits that add up to create a total picture. Some people prefer a traditional New York-style pizza, while others prefer deep dish. Some like thin crust, others like extra cheese. These choices mirror the choices we make in life, creating a clear picture of personality even the sorting hat could recommend.

So have a deep think about how you like your perfect pizza. What crust do you like best? What toppings? Do you like an adventurous cheese? Think long and hard when answering these questions, for they will determine your house, and your destiny. Take this quiz and know which Hogwarts house you belong in.
