Patch Poll: What is Your Favorite Elmhurst Pizza Place for Your Super Bowl Party?

Pizza expert gives advice on rounding out your Super Bowl party.

Super Bowl Sunday may not actually be the biggest day of the year for pizza sales, but it's always in the top five, says Jeremy White, editor-in-chief of Pizza Today magazine.

“Halloween, the day before Thanksgiving and Super Bowl Sunday are all big days for pizza,” White said. “It varies from year to year, with New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day rounding out the top five days."

At any rate, White is certainly a big advocate of ordering a few pies to enhance your Super Bowl viewing enjoyment.

“You definitely want to have pizza and a few good drinks on hand to avoid any letdown in game,” White joked.

At the risk of sounding cheesy, White gets right to the crust of the matter when it comes to pizza and offers these tips.

  • “The great thing about pizza is it is the most customizable food dish in the world,” White said. Why not try some more unusual toppings, like pineapple or shrimp?
  • “The most popular pizza is a 14-inch round,” said White. “Figure it will serve three adults, so if you have 15 people at your party, you will need five 14-inch pizzas.”
  • “Call your order in early, and I don’t mean 10 minutes before kick off. I mean an hour and a half to two hours before the game starts,” White said. Pizza joints know it’s a big day and they plan and staff for it, but odds are most of the calls will come in at once, White said. If you really want to save yourself some time and money, pick it up yourself, he said.

Speaking of creative toppings: one that is highly unappreciated is sauerkraut. It goes wonderfully with Italian sausage, blending smoothly with the sauce and cheese. I've known multiple people who dislike sauerkraut but like it on pizzas. On a different note. I've been out of the US for so long that I now longer remember (but grew up on Roberto's, on my list for my next visit in a few months): is "Pizza Hawaii" (i.e. ham with pineapple chunks) ever offered in the US? It's quite good, also with sauerkraut....

Pineapple and Canadian bacon is popular among people I know. Never thought about sauerkraut, though it sounds delish!

Clam and bacon, white, no sauce. Also spinach and garlic, also white.

Just the basic pepperoni pizza with the pepperoni on top of the cheese so it gets crispy. From Mimmo's!
