7/1: Pizza Pizzazz!
Americans are no strangers to rolling out their very own pizza pies. In fact, 71% of U.S. residents say they’ve made a pizza themselves. And, the number rises when looking at the number of parents who have baked this delicious Italian delight. 77% of Americans with children report they’ve made their own pizza.
But, gender, age, income, and geography all impact Americans’ culinary habits. More women than men — 75% compared with 67%, respectively — have baked a pizza. 78% of Americans under the age of 45 have done the same compared with 67% of their older counterparts. How does income factor in? About three-quarters of those who earn $50,000 or more have a pizza recipe in their epicurean repertoire compared with 66% of those making less. Looking at region, Midwesterners take the pie. 79% of residents living in that part of the country have created this savory treat themselves while 62% of residents living in the West admit to doing the same.
