Over 500,000 Americans work at or for pizza joints- dishing up over 3 billion, cheesy, delicious pizzas each year.

Our cheesy intel on pizza toppings comes from Yelp, who tracked the amount of nationwide pizza orders placed on Yelp and Eat24, then filtered by state. While this might make the orders a bit more premium than average (I’m looking at you caprese and white pizza!), it still provides a great window into each state’s pizza ordering habits.
Finally, we turned to PMQ Magazine for data on pizza restaurants per capita. With the safe assumption the more pizza places, the more pizza lovers in a state.
Altogether, these formed our very cheesy article.
A weirdough. So go ahead and order yourself a nice xl-pizza, with all your favorite toppings. Or maybe just cheese if you’re like 29 states where this basic ‘za is your go to.
Of course, if you’re one of the half million Americans who pizza isn’t just a passion, it’s their job, you might get an employee discount. Talk about an underrated job benefit!
