Here are some results from a new survey celebrating the "holiday"

2.  30% of us eat pizza at least once a week.

A. There’s Something For Everyone
Thin crust or deep dish? Sauce or no sauce? for me, it's a nice chunky sauce, Classic mozzarella or that new provolone? Wood-fired or out of the oven? Part of pizza’s appeal is that it’s never the same and can easily be adapted to changing tastes, preferences, and diets.

B. It’s Festive
Admit it, you still remember those grade school pizza parties with a certain sense of child-like glee. Whether it’s the red, white and green of a classic Margherita pizza or the sparkle of perfectly cooked pepperoni, pizza adds something extra special, wherever you are.

C. Perfect Salty, Sweet, Carb-Y Goodness
The interplay of cheese to sauce to crust creates an almost addictive food bomb of different aromas, textures, and flavors. Other foods are hard pressed to do the same.
