I didn`t click the tab to take their quiz because I see those 2 guys standing there grinning

 from ear to ear while holding slices of pizza that have white colored under crusts.   :-\

But then again...maybe that is what they were laughing about.... ;D

It is a stupid quiz, 30% of the questions deal with numbers only someone involved with pizza statistics in the US would even have a guess about.

Food Network is like a blown dough ball you find in the back of the frig.....sometimes they are good, most times they are not.
Too much hype for me.   8)

Lame quiz... Two thumbs down. No offense to anyone, but I'm embarrassed to admit I took part.

Tom,

I agree it is a stupid quiz.  I almost failed.

I did 80%. Only because I watched that program. They showed by using fancy descriptions of the ingredients, they could charge more for the same pie. They also said that spinning the skin in the air would produce a better crust. There is a thread on the forum that ponders that question. Looking at the thread, made me wonder if the guys on the show were right. I think the show was more fluff than factual. It was fun to watch, but I won't watch a re-run.

The quiz was for viewers who had already watched the show to see what they remembered.

Even so, for the slices/second question I guessed based on an assumption of 50k pizzerias X 80 pies/day.  Even if I had missed that one, I still would have found out that the answer was 350 and used that figure to calculate the subsequent questions.

For the around the world question, I calculated 55, picked 52 and then the correct answer on the second try.  I think I underestimated the impact of those tiny delivery pies.

For the cheese/year question I came up with 689 million lbs based on 8 oz/16" pie.  I guessed 1B and then 2B.  There must be some cheesy pizzas out there.

It's a quiz on a television program, not a "pizza test/quiz". It's like a test on Cuban culture by asking questions answered on the I Love Lucy show! Sorry if I dated myself there.
