Aleen N. Johnson struggled with her mental health her entire life, including during her time serving in the US Air Force. Recently, though, she has finally found fulfillment — by showing off her pizza tattoos, the most visible of which says “Pizza Girl” over her right eyebrow.

The vegan-cheese-loving former trooper’s health issues began when she was a teen.
“At the age of 15, I attempted my first suicide due to years of continuous bullying, verbal abuse and harassment from other students,” Johnson, of Pittsburgh, tells Jam Press. “Instead of seeking help, I kept it all inside because I did not feel like anyone would actively take the proper routes of helping me on a personal level.”
The now-24-year-old enlisted in the military in 2013, to “gain a sense of purpose,” but her demons followed her.
“As service members, we hide our pain behind temporary satisfactions because taking care of our mental health could [make us be seen] as incapable and unreliable in our work environments,” she reflects of her time serving.
While in the Air Force, she attempted suicide for a second time, and was hospitalized. It was only by finding fitness, combined with her love of pizza, that Johnson was able to pull out of her depression.
“I knew I needed to make a change, and I was willing to take risks,” she says. “In June 2019, I competed in my first powerlifting competition, placing second in junior — all while promoting my obsession for pizza.”
She took her hobbies to Instagram, where she now boasts 174,000 followers on her @thefitpizzagirl account, thanks in part to flaunting the giant pizza-shaped-heart tattoo on her butt. “Pizza is cheaper than therapy,” reads her bio, along with the fact that she’s vegan.
Recently, she graced the covers of both Australian Playboy and For Him Magazine.
“The shoots were everything I could have asked for, and my photographers made me feel worthy,” she says.
Her ultimate goal, though, is even more achievable than self-worth.
“I just want to be the Pizza Girl,” she says.
