National Pizza Day, Best Pizza in the Area ?
In the Missoula, Bitterroot Valley or surrounding areas, where is the best slice of pizza pie? It is National Pizza Day so we should celebrate.
We talked about this, this morning. Where do you like to get a pizza pie? I love Zimorino's pizza in Missoula, Moose's Pizza in Kalispell and hear great things about Figaro's pizza in Hamilton. Also Tarantino's Pizzeria Missoula .
Billy loves McKenzie River Pizza Co. and then we had a guy call in and say the Cornerstone in St.Ignatius is where it is at with a pizza called the "Goliath".. sounds good!
What about pizza chains, what is your favorite?
I love Pizza Joint's fun facts about Americans and our love of pizza. This is posted on their website to celebrate National Pizza Day.
"Pepperoni is America's favorite topping (36 percent of all pizza orders); we eat approximately 251,770,000 pounds per year. Other popular pizza toppings are mushrooms, extra cheese, sausage, green pepper and onion."
"Basic pizza most likely began in prehistoric times, with bread cooked on flat, hot stones.
Roughly 1,000 years ago herb-and-spice-covered circles of baked dough grew exceptionally popular in Naples, Italy. Known as focaccia, these rounds were served as an appetizer or a snack. (Source: Smithsonian)."
"Pizza Hut is the largest pizza purveyor in the world, with 12,583 total restaurants and combination delivery/takeout units in the U.S. and over 90 other countries; 6,590 units are company-owned. Pizza Hut generated approximately $7.7 billion in sales in 1996. (Chain Store Guide.)
