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.
