  1. Antica Pizzeria is the very first known pizzeria in Italy. It opened its doors in 1738.
  2. October has been designated official National Pizza Month. That means you can eat pizza everyday for dinner if you want. Breakfast and lunch, too. We insist.
  3. The pizza industry is big business, bringing in $30 billion a year. That’s a lot of yummy pizzas being eaten all over the United States. How much do think you spend of pizza in any given month? Multiply that by thousands of other people and $30 billion a year really makes sense.
  4. Frozen or fresh? If you go with frozen, you’re choice is one of one billion frozen pizzas bought every year in the United States. If freshly made is your forte, then that pizza you last ordered is one of three billion sold every year.
  5. Of all the restaurants in the United States, pizzerias make up 17 percent. That’s a lot of pizzerias! In most cities, you’re likely to find one around every block, along with Asian cuisine and coffee. What a strange combination. Anyway, back to the pizza!
  6. What are the most popular toppings on pizzas in India? You guessed it! Pickled ginger, minced mutton, and tofu. That doesn’t sound that bad, actually.
  7. Men are more likely to order meat as a topping on their pizza while women tend to stick with the vegetarian options. I guess women really are always on a diet and trying to stay healthy while men go straight for the artery clogging meat.
  8. The most popular pizza topping in the United States is pepperoni, comprising 36 percent of all pizzas. But, remember, on September 5th, no pepperoni. We mean it!
  9. The busiest time of year for Pizzerias is during the Super Bowl. It’s fast, it’s easy, and you can eat it while you’re watching the game. Also, it’s and inexpensive way to feed a whole bunch of family and friends who come to your house to watch the game.
