Pizza Perfect…Fun Fact Friday

Friday nights seem to be pizza night in our house. So today I thought I would share some fun pizza facts with you…

Buffalo Chicken pizza – blue cheese as the base, chicken, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese/mozzarella cheese on the top!
The “Kitchen Sink” pizza – homemade wheat crust, and what ever you can find in the fridge on top.
Thai Chicken with peanut sauce pizza – sweet and spicy sauce on the bottom, grilled chicken, grated carrots, cilantro, and peanut sauce drizzled on top!

Did you know Americans eat about 100 acres (1 acre is about the size of a football field) of pizza a day!! Or 350 slices a second?!

Each man, woman, and child in America eats roughly 46 slices of pizza year!

Pepperoni is America’s favorite pizza.

In America, anchovies rank last on desired pizza toppings. (I like anchovies on my pizza!)

According to Domino’s, international favorites include: pickled ginger, minced mutton (old sheep meat) and tofu in India, squid (octopus), Mayou Jaga (mayonnaise, potato, and bacon) in Japan, and green peas in Brazil. In Russia, pizza is covered with mockba, which a combination of sardines, tuna, mackerel, salmon, and onions. In France, a popular pizza is the Flambee, with bacon, onion, and fresh cream.

    1. I love pineapple on my pizza too! Oh I might have to experiment with the brat, sauerkraut, and mustard pizza – it sounds really interesting.
