Super Bowl 50: Pizza Pregame

A Nielsen Survey shows pizza is the number one food choice for Super Bowl 50, and about 50-percent of football fans will be tuning in to the game with a slice in hand.    

Employees at Marco’s Pizza on Central Freeway in Wichita Falls are already preparing for its busiest day, Super Bowl Sunday.

Charlotte Harrison, a Marco’s Pizza employee, said the crew is tripling the amount of pizza ingredients they have in house, and the pizzeria is expected to double its amount in total sales.

On Superbowl Sunday, Marco's Pizza will go through 330 gallons of marinara sauce,180 pounds of mozzarella cheese, and to get the perfect crust nearly 300 pounds of flour.

As for toppings, the restaurant will use nearly 50 pounds of pepperonis.

 Most of these pizzas will be delivered, and to make this happen, all hands will be on deck and working the entire day.
