LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Americans will buy about 12.5 million pizzas for the big game according to retailmenot.com.
The USDA reports that it’s also the second largest food consumption day of the year after Thanksgiving.
Goodfellas Pizzeria in Lexington prepares for the extra orders by over staffing and over stocking ingredients.
“We just have to prepare and get ready to get hit,” said Jack Stobbs, Shift Leader.
Stobbs says their busiest time is before and after the game.
During this day, they will go through 90 dough balls and each dough ball is just under 3 pounds.
According to the American Pizza Community, pepperoni is the most popular topping.
“We just sell so much pepperoni, so much pepperoni. You can’t go wrong with pepperoni at all,” said Stobbs.
Stobbs says that from the time you order, to the the time your pizza is hot and ready, it should take about 20 minutes.
