Exposing toddlers to different foods for the first time can be an uphill battle for most parents, well, unless the food is pizza. The internet seemed to nod in agreement when podcaster Jody Avirgan posted a picture of his toddler in a euphoric state after receiving the breaded blessing for the first time.

With her eye’s closed, lips and nose smothered in grease, and arms stretched out to the heavens, the toddler resembles an adult locked in the throes of a religious experience. Avirgan’s Twitter followers wasted no time reacting to the shot, proving that the church of pizza is a home for people of all ages and previous persuasions.
While one responder turned the picture into a meme, others took the time to share some of their visceral feelings about the cheesy elixir.

Finally, a few others used the post to share hilarious stories of them exposing their own children to new foods. You’ve been there.
My son had the same expression the first time he had syrup on pancakes. Then he looked at me like I’d betrayed him for not giving it to him before.

Mine can now talk and basically asks for pizza for at least every other meal.
