Who doesn’t love pizza? It doesn’t matter if it’s thin crust, wood-fired, NY style, or any other form of pizza it’s just delicious. Pizza is just one of the foods almost everyone likes. It’s a people pleaser, for parties, gamedays, late night doesn’t matter. The possibilities are endless from types of crust to different sauces, and toppings. It may just be the perfect food. And October is National Pizza Month. Isn’t that every month? It is for me. But to celebrate our friends at Gambling.com conducted research to determine what North Carolina’s favorite pizza chain is.
Before we get into that full disclosure I’ve become a sort of pizza snob. That typical chain delivery pizza just doesn’t hit like it used to. I prefer a wood-fired option or a giant slice of NY pizza. I’m not saying I wouldn’t eat it if it were in front of me, but I honestly don’t remember the last time I chose to get pizza from a well-known delivery chain. Even still I’m sure you have a favorite as do I. But is it the same as the rest of the state? That’s the burning question.
To create this ranking Gambling.com’s researchers looked at the nation’s five most popular chain pizza restaurants. They took two pieces of data. First was the number of locations per 100,000 residents in the state. And the second was the number of Google searches for the chains. Those were weighted and each chain was given an overall score on which they were ranked. Those are the rankings you’ll find below. Do these rankings surprise you? Or is your top choice North Carolina’s favorite pizza chain? Thanks to our friends at Gambling.com for sharing this research with us.
