October is National Pizza Month

Did you know that October is National pizza month?  Well, it is and this means that we all need to eat as much pizza as possible!

There is no better time to start than the present, right, Mitch?
This is a fresh tomato pizza with basil and lots of garlic!

Did you know that:

*Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each day, or 350 slices per second.

*Pizza is a $30 billion per year industry.

*There are approximately 61,269 pizzerias in the United States. (Source: American Business Lists, Omaha, Nebraska.)

*Each man, woman and child in America eats an average of 46 slices (23 pounds) of pizza a year. (source: Packaged Facts, New York)

*Approximately 3 billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year .

I take my begging very seriously!


Thanks, mom!

Your turn, dad!
When do we get to have pizza again?
Tomorrow, right?!

So until next time...............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Woohoo! Our mom bought a pizza yesterday so she could eat it then AND after today's neighborhood yard sale. She's always way to tired to cook anything after one of our yard sales! Hers has pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, green olives and pineapple. Yep, strange combination, but that's how she likes it!

Have a great weekend! We will be barking away all the intruders that come into our basement!

Niamh said...

Thank you for this vital information Maggie & Mitch! We had no idea that there was such a month but now that we do, we want to do some extensive celebration. We think 100 acres of pizza sounds terrific. Glad you enjoyed yours.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Dewey Dewster here....

Sherry said...

Wow, this is important news. We didn't know there was a national pizza month. We have some catching up to do. Mom, where's that pizza?

Koobuss said...

Wow!! That is great news about National Pizza Month! Thanks for telling us about it. We love pizza and we will have to take extra special measures to honor pizza in its special month.

I'm pretty sure that my mom and grandpaw are ahead of the national average in pizza consumption. 46 slices a year is less than one a week and we do a lot better than that here. We eat pizza for supper every Friday, almost. And at least two or three slices a week, well, you can do the math. These numbers are too high for me. Hehe...

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Lorenza said...

National Pizza Month? Can I make it international??
Pizza is delicious! My mom shares some with me... sometimes...
Glad you enjoyed yours!
Kisses and hugs

Hamish said...

Mom is drooling and going "" Lucky you, our mom doesn't like to share!

Mack said...

We did not know that October is national pizza month. That is great!!

BJ Roan said...

Your pizza looks yummy. I like cold pizza for breakfast and it's about that time. ;)

violett said...

Oh, I eat pizza also with pleasure. Unfortunately, I get them very rare. Mummy makes diet. There is no pizza!
Mummy says, the American pizza is the best one of the world. She nowhere tastes so well, as in the USA. With a nice thick edge of cheese.
If mummy bakes sometimes a pizza, she makes one according to American model.
Lots of love

Clive said...

Those were some amazing pizza facts!

Murray loves his pizza - he would eat it every night if he was allowed to ...

and I do get the odd bit of crust!

take care

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Well we need to get our share too...
"Mom it's pizza month, Mitch and Maggie say we need to eat more"
Thanks you 2.

Big Sloppy Kisses

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I want a pizza, just like yours! In fact I want it every nite.
Oh I can smell it now.
Our taste buds are coming alive.


Thor said...

Brazilians love pizza too! We had pizza today! =)


I didn't know I didn't know... must tell mom. I think they should create amber alerts for this type of news. As usual, I am jelly. You guys score all the time.

The Thuglets said...

Unfortunately, pizza in Japan is very expensive. With my volume of consumption, the $ spent on pizza is good enough to afford a course dinner in a posh restaurant. So sad huh?

Hollie and Janie said...

Mmmmmmm!!! Isn't pizza just the best?! What a great thing to celebrate... delicious, cheesy pizza!

Inky and Molly said...

Lucky dogs! We never have pizza really. Sometimes our pink people make it and we may see a tiny tweeny bit of it... We'll tell them about October being Pizza month!
