According to some very official statistics, Americans love pizza. There are 350 slices eaten per second and three billion pies sold per year in the U.S. Woah!

There is also a pizza vending machine in Italy that needs to make its way over to the states right now because that would definitely do well around here.

The glorious food was invented back in 500 B.C. and has evolved over hundreds of years into the many different types that we now know today. It’s convenient, there are over 70,000 pizzerias in the United States. There are ‘healthy’ versions. You can order in or eat it out. There are fancy kinds and cheap kinds (both equally delicious). And it has a lot of different food groups. Across the board, it has so many great qualities, you can’t go wrong in choosing pizza for a meal. It is delicious and amazing and comes in all shapes and sizes and just because of that here is an ode to the beautiful food through some great GIFs demonstrating its greatness.
