October is National Pizza Month. However, if I had it my way, every month would be National Pizza Month. Some call it a sickness.  But, according to some ‘pizza facts’, I am not alone.

I found some interesting facts about pizza from “How Stuff Works,” “Franchise Help” and USA Today:

  • 94% of Americans eat pizza regularly.
  • 93% of Americans have eaten pizza in the last month.
  • Pizza is America’s fourth most-craved food, behind cheese, chocolate and ice cream.
  • Americans consume over 100 acres of pizza a DAY, about 350 slices per second. And that’s on a regular day* not Super Bowl Sunday or Halloween!
  • Pizza accounts for more than 10% of all food service sales.
  • 3 billion pizzas are sold in the United States each year, plus an additional one billion frozen pizzas.
  • There are approximately 61,269 pizzerias in the United States. These pizzerias represent 17% of all restaurants.
  • Frozen pizzas that could be purchased in grocery stores were first introduced in the United States in 1957.
  • Halloween is the third busiest pizza day of the year, behind Super Bowl Sunday and New Year’s Eve.

 

I am curious what your favorite pizza in the Binghamton area is.  What is your favorite?
