Actually, the most shocking bit of info in this graphic isn't that Americans eat the yearly GDP of North Korea in pizza or that the average American consumes 11 pounds of cheese a year, but that CiCi's Pizza is the most popular brand of pizza in the country. Apparently "pizza buffet" are the magic worlds that set alight the hearts of Americans.
This infographic, created by Online College Courses, does do an excellent job of depicting the America's profound pizza pie preoccupation. It is also a ray of light. Though we live in trouble times where it seems like we can't agree on anything as a country anymore, it's reassuring to know that ordering a couple pepperoni pizzas will please just about everyone.
