Interesting Pizza Facts

One of the things that most people love about pizza is the fact that it is a social food. A nice slice is always made more enjoyable around the company of family and friends. Of course pizza makes a great topic of conversation as well. That’s why we’ve put together some interesting pizza facts you can use to be a hit at any party.

For example, telling people how much pizza Americans eat will certainly raise a few eyebrows and have people asking for more trivia. The answer is, Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each and every day. If that number doesn’t seem incredible enough for you we can break it down another way. One hundred acres of pizza equals 350 slices a second from coast-to-coast.

Chances are you’ll be sitting around with a small group enjoying a slice of pizza, so here’s a statistic that’s more geared towards individuals. Every year, American men, women and children eat the equivalent of 43 slices of pizza each.

Of course that means that everybody has to be buying their favourite food almost constantly. There’s a statistic for that too because almost 3 billion pizzas are sold every year in the United States.
