When my wife and I were leaving a Super Bowl party we attended this past Sunday and as we were walking to the car, we saw a pizza delivery man. I thought to myself "Man, that would stink having to work during the Super Bowl." It turns out that, that pizza delivery man likely made a killing it tips this past Sunday.

If you ordered pizza this past Sunday, the restaurant likely had your order ahead, or you likely had to expect a little bit longer wait time than normal. Pizzas go flying in and out of ovens everywhere on Super Bowl Sunday. According to Fox45, around 12.5 million pizzas are sold and delivered during the big game.

According to Pizza Today, pizza places see an increase in sales anywhere from 30-35% on Super Bowl Sunday. While that might seem like the busiest day of the year for pizza, Super Bowl Sunday comes in a very close 2nd place.
