Think Outside The (Pizza) Box

Tomorrow brings another reason to celebrate. February 9th is National Pizza Pie Day! Yes folks, here's another excuse to enjoy pizza for dinner. But I don't think Americans need too much convincing to chow down a slice, or two. According to Pizza Today-

$38 billion- Annual pizza sales in America

3 billion- Number of pizzas sold in the U.S. each year 

350- Slices of pizza sold every second

46- Slices of pizza the average American eats each year

93-  Percent of Americans who eat pizza at least once a month

And although we dairy farmers are happy to supply milk for all that pizza cheese, don't think mozzarella is your only option. Our cows are happy to contribute to any of these "think outside the (pizza) box" cheeses.

Asiago          Cheddar           Fontina          Parmesan 
Gorgonzola          Monterey Jack          Muenster          
Provolone          Romano          Smoked mozzarella

And if you are watching the Winter Olympics, you may want to try a popular Russian pizza topping called mockba, which is a combination of sardines, tuna, mackerel, salmon and onions. Enjoy!
