If we could only eat one food for the rest of our lives, pizza would be the choice….beating out steaks, hamburgers, tacos, and other picks. It can be eaten at any meal (don’t overlook a pizza breakfast) or at any temperature. It can be used to celebrate a successful move or a pick me up after a bad day!
That’s the finding of a recent Harris Poll. Pizza was the favorite of 21 percent of those surveyed. Steak came in second at (16 percent), followed by hamburgers (13 percent), tacos (11 percent), pasta (11 percent), salad (9 percent), sushi (6 percent), and macaroni and cheese (4 percent).
Pizza was also the choice dish (25 percent) when it comes to indulging and straying from their usual diet, beating out ice cream or a burger with fries (each got 18 percent), fried chicken (7 percent), and tacos (7 percent).
Other slices from the survey:
Favorite living sports legend to eat pizza with: Most women would want to share pizza with tennis star Serena Williams (15 percent) while men chose Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (12 percent).
Pizza and passion: 63 percent would be likely to “swipe right” for someone who mentioned pizza in their online dating profile (if they were online dating), with men being more likely than women to do so (67 percent versus 60 percent).
Eat with your hands. More than 2 in 10 (22 percent) would not go on a second date with someone if they ate pizza with a knife and fork on the first date.
Pizza is so popular in the U.S. that 350 slices are eaten every second while 40 percent of Americans eat pizza at least once a week.
There’s a reason pizza is so popular; humans are drawn to foods that are sweet, rich and complex. Yes, complex. Scientists have found the characteristics of pizza ingredients and the baking causes sensory reactions that actually excite our brain, thrill our taste buds, and cause our mouth to water.
At TJ’s Take and Bake Pizza we are proud to serve American’s favorite food. If you love pizza, then come to TJ’s! But there are many more reasons to visit, so we compiled our Top Ten Reasons to come to TJ’s Take and Bake Pizza.

The Best White Pizza on Hilton Head
The name is self explanatory; a white pizza is made without tomato sauce. What a white pizza lacks for in crushed, vine-ripened tomatoes, it makes up for in other quality and tasty ingredients. White pizza is especially flavorsome because you can focus on the textures and taste of the other ingredients.
Oil, cheeses, vegetables and meats ‘pop out’ on white pizzas, as they are given center stage to stand on. At TJ’s, we offer seven distinctive white pizzas, and, of course, as with any of our pizzas, you can build your own.
