Using "it" in German - getting confused!

If I want to say "I like pizza because it tastes good" do I say "Ich liebe Pizza denn sie schmeckt gut", or Ich liebe Pizza denn es schmeckt gut"?

And "Ich liebe Fußball denn es ist spannend" or "denn er ist spannend"?

Use the pronoun that corresponds to the gender of the noun your replacing. Er, sie, and es can all mean 'it'.

If you're talking about the girl 'das Mädchen', use es. Your audience will understand you mean she.
