Researchers Have Uncovered How Much Pizza You Will Eat In Your Lifetime (Hint: It’s A Lot)
The average person will munch their way through 731 pizzas in their lifetime – or an incredible 5,847 slices.
Researchers also found that figure is most likely to be made up of 130 pepperoni, 124 cheese and tomato, and 64 ham and pineapple versions.
On top of that we will scarf 73 vegetarian pizzas, 55 four cheese ones and 30 with a seafood topping.
Completing the list of the average lifetime pizza consumption are 93 meatfeast, 71 BBQ, plus another 91 pizzas made up of varied toppings.
It also emerged the typical pizza lover will shell out over $12,600 during their lifetime on takeaway versions of their beloved Italian meal. Another $8,200 will be blown on supermarket pizzas.
Anita Naik, lifestyle editor at VoucherCodes.co.uk, which carried out the study, said, “Pizza discounts are one of our most popular offers, so if you’ve got a craving for a cheesy takeaway make sure you grab one of our codes first and so you can munch that pizza and get a great saving at the same time!”
The study also found we will typically enjoy 135 takeaway pizzas, 72 bought at restaurants and 274 purchased from a supermarket.
On top of that, we will devour 68 homemade pies and another 182 bought from street stalls or eaten at friends’ or relatives’ houses.
Thin crust is the most popular type of pizza, followed by deep pan, while mushrooms emerged as the favorite topping closely followed by pepperoni, ham, chicken and tomato.
Red onions, green and red peppers, pineapple, bacon and sweetcorn also made the top ten list followed by chorizo sausage, olives and herbs.
Least favorite toppings include anchovies, prawns and Cumberland sausage.
One in three of the 2,000 adults who took part in the survey said pizza was their favorite takeaway. Another one in five described pizza as their favorite food, while Friday topped Saturday as the most popular night to order a pizza.
Anita Naik, for Voucher Codes, added, “Who’d have thought mushrooms would be on the podium. Whatever your favorite is, make sure you check to see if you can save some cash by using takeaway restaurants “create your own” options – you can save over £1 on some pizzas if you build it yourself.”
