Pizza is one of the most popular foods in America. A 2019 Harris Poll on behalf of California Pizza Kitchen revealed some pretty amazing facts about America’s love of pizza. According to this survey, almost a quarter of Americans would choose pizza if they could only eat one food for the rest of their lives. Sixty-five percent think pizza is a suitable breakfast item, and forty percent would give up dating for a year in exchange for free pizza anytime they wanted. Perhaps most surprising is that sixty-one percent of Millennials would give up social media for a year in exchange for free pizza anytime!
Every small town seems to have at least one pizza parlor, so when that pizza craving hits, it can easily be satisfied. But if you are a pizza gourmet, you likely want to try making your own, creating unique combinations from fresh, local ingredients. While they can be cooked in a standard home oven, pizza gourmets might want to consider investing in a special oven.
