MADISON, Wis. – It’s no wonder that pizza has its own holiday when it is consistently named one of America’s favorite foods. This Sunday marks an entire day dedicated to the cheesy treat that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere. From meat lovers and margherita to deep dish and stuffed crust, there is a pizza for everyone. In a world of infinite dining options, consumer trends show that pizza has seen the largest increase in eating occasions over any other food in the past decade (NPD, 2020).
“When you have a pizza, you have an instant party,” says Suzanne Fanning, Chief Marketing Officer for Wisconsin Cheese and Senior Vice President at Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin. “Don’t be held to tradition—you can create a culinary masterpiece when you mix, match and grate artisan cheese on your pizza. Chefs and consumers all over the country know the many delicious cheeses from Wisconsin can take an ordinary pizza to new levels. Try adding truffle gouda, feta, alpine, gorgonzola—the possibilities are endless.”
