How Much Do We Love Our Local Pizza Places?

by Bear

I have always been a fan of non-chain stand alone pizza restaurants. Now don't get me wrong...the pizza chains do a great job, but I love a small, locally owned pizza joint. I guess I am not alone:

Itza Pizza

A new survey by Restaurant.com reveals that 81% of people prefer pizza from an independently owned pizzeria instead of a pizza chain. Other findings:

- favorite crusts: thin and crunchy (40%); New York style (39%); pan pizza (15%)

- favorite toppings: pepperoni followed by cheese and mushroom

- favorite pizzas: meat lovers (24%); Margarita (23%); white pizza (18%)
