4. Cauliflower crust has invaded 35.5% of pizzeria menus, according to a 2022 survey of pizza places by Pizza Today.

5. That same survey says that the five most popular pizza toppings are: pepperoni, sausage, mushroom, extra cheese and — a newcomer to the top five in 2022 — bacon.

6. A lot of football games to celebrate… An easy dinner to pick-up before trick-or-treating… 31 full days… It’s no wonder October is National Pizza Month. It was marked as such by Congress in 1987.
