He made the decision to become a vegetarian for ‘ethical reasons’ as teenager, but also hates vegetables and so has survived on a diet of exclusively cheese pizzas for the last 25 years.

He usually consumes two 14-inch pizzas every day with coffee. While studying at Harvard University he even worked at Domino’s to feed his food addiction.

Mixing it up

To keep things varied, Janssen visits different pizza stores and buys frozen flat breads from a mix of brands.
“It’s like eating a completely different meal,” Dan said.

Other than a cheese and tomato topping, Janssen occasionally adds extra flavour with a sprinkling of oregano.
When Janssen tells people about his pizza-only diet, he usually gets one of two reactions. “I think I’m an anomaly. I don’t advocate this, ” he added.

The Maryland resident says his limited diet has not impacted on his love life.Indeed, his now-fiancee even suggested they go for pizza on their first date after hearing about his tastes. However, she is the reason he is now attempting to vary his diet.

Recently, he started seeing a nutritionist and therapist in a bid to conquer his food habit. “I do see a day in the future when I get a little more adventurous,” he concluded.
