Saturday the 9th is National Pizza Day, which, frankly, feels like it's a pretty legitimate reason for celebrating, I mean who does not love a great slice from your favorite pizza place?

Anyway, in honor of the holiday, here are some new pizza stats for you from

98% of Americans like pizza and 54% of us even say we LOVE IT.

Almost one in three people eat it at least once a week.

33 million Americans would pick pizza as their last meal on Earth and 26 million would give up getting-it-on for a year for unlimited pizza.

The most popular toppings are pepperoni, sausage, mushroom, and bacon.  And the least popular are anchovies, eggplant, pineapple, and artichokes.




5.  When it comes to crusts, "regular" is the most popular type . . . thin crust is second . . . and deep dish is third.
