Comforting Pizza Toppings

Restaurant pizza often becomes our "so tired, want to sit and watch TV" evening meal. That day is today, and I am eating my
comfort pizza - pepperoni and jalapenos (and extra cheese if it's from a place that is stingy with the white stuff). Any other time, I am very adventurous with pizza toppings. Is pizza a comfort food? I think so, but only if it has pepperoni and jalapenos, and nothing else. Maybe it's the endorphins released by the peppers, or something like that.
