Americans love summer and pizza!
With approximately 3 billion pizzas sold each year, the average American eats about 46 pizza slices each year.
Pizza sales are at an all time high on Super Bowl Sunday, New Year’s Eve, Halloween, Thanksgiving eve and New Year’s Day.
People of all ages love pizza so much that it is estimated that 93% of all Americans have been known to consume pizza in a given month!
According to the South Florida Reporter, pizza originated from a pizzeria in Naples, Italy approximately 1738.
Focaccia, or rounds of baked, herb-infused dough, were the early beginnings for the development of pizza, which spread to the US at the turn of the century.
The rest is history, so-to-speak, and most could not fathom living without it!
