Did you know Americans on average eat 100 acres of pizza a day, or 350 slices of pizza per second? 93 percent of Americans eat at least one pizza per month. 3 billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year and the annual pizza sales revenue is $40 billion dollars.

Did you realize 4 out of 5 of the top pizza ordering days are right around the corner? The top five crazy-busy pizza days are Halloween, the night before Thanksgiving, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and Super Bowl Sunday.  This is a great time to make sure you are equipped to roll in the dough.

The crust is a tell tale sign of a good pizza.  Surprisingly, regular thin crust is most popular in America, it is preferred by 61% of the population, 14% prefer deep-dish and 11% prefer extra thin crust.
