Simone Biles is one of the unquestioned breakout stars of the Summer Olympics. She just added a personal gold to the team win, so she must be feeling pretty good. But how does she celebrate a huge victory like this? Well, like many of us, she turns to pepperoni pizza.

“It doesn’t even matter if I don’t win a self-gold, after every meet I have pizza. Pepperoni pizza,” she told ABC News.

Pepperoni pizza is objectively the best kind of pizza. The secret holy trinity of pizza toppings is pepperoni-garlic-jalapeño. This is an objective truth, and any argument about it is foolish and wrong-headed. Olive-and-mushroom lovers, there’s the door.

Biles’ pregame routine is a little lighter. The gymnast tells Women's Health that Special K Red Berries and egg whites make up her ideal breakfast. That’s sensible; one wouldn’t want to attempt even a single flip after eating a whole pizza.

Although that might be an interesting gymnastics competition.
