It’s National Pizza Pie Day for there’s no excuse for not indulging yourself in one our country’s favorite dishes... Pizza.
It doesn’t matter if you buy, make or have it delivered, we Americans eat approximately 46 acres of pizza a year. That’s about 5.75 pizzas a year.
I have no idea when I had my first pizza... however I have a feeling it was one my mother made from Chef Boyardee... you know the one in the box. When I was growing up there were no pizza delivery places and I doubt there were any
Pizzerias or Pizza Parlors and certainly Dominos or Papa John’s were just seeds being planted in some entrepeneur’s head.
And today.... there are Friday night pizza nights with the family.... pizza by the slice... special pizza ovens and stones.... and much more.
36% of all pizzas ordered are pepperoni pizzas
Pizza most likely originated not in Italy but in Greece or Rome.
Most believe that the first pizzeria was Lombardi’s in New York City (1905).
17% of all restaurants in the U.S. are pizzerias.
