Pizza, like many others today, have evolved into a fast food delicacy from small “Mom and Pop” shops. With so many options and varieties available what is America’s favorite chain? Well, the most recent 2016 study by Yelp has found that Domino’s is America’s go to! If you haven’t heard, the chain is a major innovator in fast food service. They started their chain 56 years ago and first shook the world with their now famous “30 minutes or less” pledge, meaning get your pizza in 30 minutes or it’s free! Recently they eliminated the need to even call for delivery pizza with their “Tweet to order” campaign. And now with the creation of drone delivery it’s no secret why they’ve kept themselves at the top of everyone’s list and are currently operating 12,000 locations worldwide!
Another feat pizza has done is that it has created a signature for cities and has created an entire tourist industry because of it. Chicago is a prime example of this; they have manifested their deep dish pizza craze and started putting together tours to help people experience the very best the city has to offer. While deep dish pizza is almost exclusive to Chicago, New York City has its own signature pizza: the world famous thin crust pizza. This pizza is exactly as it sounds, it focuses less on the crust and more on the quality of ingredients it serves! Baltimore also has a signature pie, and theirs comes from the way it’s made. Instead of brick oven cooking like most pizza places, Baltimore uses a coal fire to bake the pie to perfection!
With October coming to an end, you don’t have a lot of time left to participate and support our nations favorite food. With that, I suggest starting the diet tomorrow and treat you and your family to your favorite pizza. Whether it’s Dominos or it’s your local pizza shop around the corner sit down around the dinner table and relish in one of the greatest convenience foods available. I know I will!
