Posted at 1:58 PM, Feb 08, 2017

It would be very hard to find someone who does not like pizza. In fact, only 2 percent of Americans don't like pizza and 1 and 3 Americans eat pizza at least once a week, according to a survey done by the pollsters at National Today.

Pizza isn't just about pepperoni and cheese anymore. That might explain why so many people enjoy it and have made it part of their weekly diet. And maybe that is why there are so many unusual kinds of pizza in Las Vegas. Here is just a few of them:
