April 5th...National Deep Dish Pizza Day. What is your favorite pizza topping?

Today is National Deep Dish Pizza Day.  What is your favorite pizza topping?

National Deep Dish Pizza Day was established in 2009 to commemorate this style of pizza crust, created in Chicago, and the 65th anniversary of its original creator, UNO.

The Boston based company, ONU Restaurant Holdings Corporation, owns 165 full service UNO Chicago Grill restaurants in 26 states (but unfortunately none in Ada).

ONU sells 4.4 million deep dish pizzas every year, which is enough to feed the population of Ireland.

The most popular pizza topping is cheese, followed by pepperoni and Italian sausage.  Nearly 35% of all the pizzas ordered have pepperoni on them.

The least popular pizza topping is anchovies.  Anchovies are small fish that taste very salty, and most pizza restaurants do not even carry them.

Today is a good day to make a trip to any of the local pizza places in town, or simply call them up and place an order.
