Eat Pizza and be a Better Lover

We all suspected it, but now there’s proof: a recent study has shown that, by a strong margin, women love pizza more than men do — probably more than they love men, in fact.

Conducted by Smart Flour Foods and the Center for Generational Kinetics, the study was compiled from 10-minute surveys filled out by 1,004 adults whose practice of ordering pizza from restaurants (or buying frozen pizza) every month classified them as “pizza lovers.”

The results were pretty surprising: not only were 63% of all pizza lovers women, but 41% of those women fell into the “Millennial” age bracket — although the study starts that bracket in 1977, which seems a bit early if we’re honest. What’s more, 68% of pizza lovers actually reported exercising at least two times per week, a far cry from the greasy-fingered couch potato one generally associates with the hedonistic pleasures of pizza.

Just how important are those pizza pleasures? 8% of pizza lovers said they’d rather go a year without sex than without pizza, which only reinforces the fact that most pizza lovers are undoubtedly female.
