Pizza - How often do you eat it? Wed, 12/1/04 4:17 PM (permalink)
I’m out of control. I find myself eating pizza 3-4 nights a week. There is such a huge difference between the mom & pop pizza joints, frozen pizza and say Godfathers, that it’s really not eating the same thing. Some nights I have a hankering for the thin greasy type of pizza, other nights I crave a big old taco pizza. I actually cut back on my lunch as there’s a good chance it will be pizza for supper. Plus it’s just so dang easy I don’t muss up the kitchen. How often do you guys eat pizza?

I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted.

    I hardly ever eat pizza unless I make it myself - around here, there's little that's worth the calories.

      Probably about once a month. The only options we have for delivery in my area are the usual chain suspects, but for kids and convinience it is good to do every once in a while.

      There are better pizza places in Houston proper.

          We have it once a week to once every two weeks. We live in the Chicago area, so there's no shortage of great pizza. Even frozen varieties around here are good, like Home Run Inn. On the other hand, we were in Michigan last week and the choice of frozen pizzas was either Tombstone or Jack's. I chose Jacks and made it for the kids. After seeing it come out of the oven, I decided not to partake. Even my four-year-old couldn't finish his slice, and pizza is his favorite food. Yuck!

            No, if I'm extra hungry I have a sub sandwhich on the side. Taco pizza has lettuce, does that count? I eat chef salad for lunch several times a week.

                I had a friend in Ohio, he and his wife both worked. He said he knew he had to change eating habits when the kids started knowing the pizza delivery guys by name.

                  Since it's what we feed our phone volunteers during our "begging for bucks" marathon's I'll be eating it for about 2 weeks, there is always the option of getting something different before I come in though, but hey, it's free.

                    Rusty, sounds like pledge time for an NPR station? Is my guess correct?

                      I like to eat cold pizza for breakfast on (most) Saturday mornings along with a icy cold glass of V-8 juice.

                      Of course, that must mean I ordered/made pizza the night before...

                        About once every week or two. We have some excellent Mom and Pops that offer so many toppings and sauce and crust choices that I could eat it every night and it wouldn't taste the same. Funny, sometimes we'll go a while without, then end up having pizza twice the same week.

                            Honestly, I consider pizza a food group.

                            Think about it:

                            If you look at it from the former "4 food groups" guidelines, it has your dairy, your meat, your veggies (if you order it with jalapenos as I do), and your bread.

                            If you look at it from the "Zone" angle, it's got your protein, your carbs, and your fat. Plus, it has lots of lycopene due to the cooked tomatoes.

                            Just remember to always order the thin, crispy crust (to cut down on carb content, and because Chicago-style deep-dish is a travesty.)

                            There's a new locally-owned pizza place in Round Rock, Rockin' Tomato, where I often go for lunch. They offer a buffet with many yummy pizzas, some of their other Italian dishes, and a really great salad bar. All including drink (I go for their fresh-brewed iced tea) for $7. You can get a REAL thin-crust pizza here, and I'm grateful for that.

                            I eat "apizza" once every 1 or 2 weeks, on average.

                            Shalom to y'all.

                                Since I have been laid off I find myself making Pizza at least two to three times a week now,before it might have been only ocne a week.I find Pizza to be very comforting in these times.

                                  Well - Tiki has to drive 100 mile for pizza, and jellybear likes to make pizza. Hmmmm, I see a business opportunity!

                                    I'll line up with Ruby Rose, A few times a year would be typical. We might hit a couple of extra times if we are at one of the kids homes and are busy so they call out. You would think that with 2 daughters and 6 sons (only one still single)and thats not counting Janets two married kids, that some of them could handle the kitchen tasks pretty well??? Hmm I have one daughter-in-law who can "cook" , the rest can nuke or order out at best. I listened to a couple of them argue at Thanksgiving about how to prepare the jellied Cranberry Sauce...no joke..
                                    Any way we call in the order at most three times a year to Papa John's for our selves and pay for the kids call in if we are there and get at least one piece of the pie.

                                      I only eat pizza about once every two months. My husband has to watch his dairy products because of kidney stones, so we have to watch the cheese, etc.

                                        Why not make it the old fashioned way. Just sauce and a little bit of grated Parmagiano Reggiano.

                                          If I find one that serves up slices I'll more than likely try it out. But if I discover that the pizza oven has a conveyor belt to it I will walk out the door.

                                            I eat it once a week. Either a slice at lunch, a doctored up frozen pizza for dinner, or a homemade one when time permits... I only have a couple 3 slices when I do a whole one, but there's always volunteers to finish off the rest! Never any leftovers...

                                                about twice a month.. BUT if it were up to me i'd eat it every day.. that's definitely one of my basic food group items.. but tough on the family.. have to have a little variety for them.. so i give in and enjoy it when i can!!

                                                    I love pizza and would eat it at least twice a week, if it just didn't have so much fat in it. (My kids could probably eat it every day if we let them.) I've tried the pizzas made with reduced fat cheese, but they taste just about as good as the boxes they come in. I've come to the conclusion that when I want pizza, I'll have to take the good (taste) with the bad (fat), and just not worry about it. I do normally limit myself to having pizza no more than once every two weeks, and I no longer order any fatty meats as toppings (e.g., pepperoni or sausage). Currently, though, I am abstaining from all dairy products for a month to see if this helps with a tendonitis problem that I'm having with my left shoulder. According to Dr. Andrew Weill, and other diet authorities that I've read and listened to, dairy products can cause or exacerbate problems with inflamation in some people.

                                                      2, 3 times a year max. I just don't crave it like I used to.

                                                        OH MY GOSH, I can not imagine not having pizza at least once a week. We either make one or two, or get it from my brothers pizza joint. Love it.

                                                          Having once lived in Connecticut -- now living in Seattle, there isn't much point to have pizza at all.

                                                          Back East: twice a week.

                                                          Seattle: once a month. It is sad kinda.

                                                            We get it delivered about once a week. Nothing exciting, just something quick and easy that my picky kids will eat. I haven't found any really fantastic pizza places around here (Maryland). If I had access to some of the great stuff up in CT, I'd order even more often!
