A TASTY OBSESSION: THE YEAR IN PIZZA
For most of us, from the time we were children, the answer to the
question, “what do you want for dinner?” has always been met with a
resounding, wholehearted cry of, “PIZZA!” Whether you’re into some of
today’s trendiest specialty pies, or your style is more plain cheese,
nothing beats the joy of biting into a tasty slice if your personal
favorite pizza. The current pizza market has its fair share of both
cheap and gourmet pizzas alike, but some classic pizza joints will never
go out of style. Whether you’re currently a student or you simply have
fond recollections of your 20-something years, chances are you can
probably relate to the age-old quest for a late night pizza. Even if,
for some reason, pizza isn’t your all-time favorite food, there’s no
denying the fact that it’s always there for you when you need it. Is
there any sweeter sound than the pizza deliverer’s knock on your door?
From providing a hearty meal for your family to fueling you through that
late-night study session, pizza is a reliable dish for just about any
occasion. If you can appreciate the appeal of the pizza, take a look at
the following infographic, and take a moment to be glad that we live in a
world where pizza exists.
