The World in Pizza


The country of Norway is known for polar bears and high rates of happiness. However, their biggest accomplishment to date is a little-known fact. In 2005, Norway consumed more pizza per capita than any other nation in the world. In fact, Norwegians love their pizza so much that frozen pizza is their country’s official national dish!

Also known as Saturday Pizza, the toppings on the Lørdagspizza are fairly familiar to westerners: red bell pepper, beef, onion, and meatballs. What isn’t familiar is using sour cream as a dip.
