Papa John's just released some surprising data about pizza sales and Oscar night. Papa John's sells 2-1/2 times as many pizzas on Oscars' Sunday as it does on an average Sunday. Nearly 1 million households will be ordering in pizzas on Hollywood's biggest night.
The No. 1 pizza ordered is just plain cheese, with no toppings. A heck of a lot different than the meat fest that is Super Bowl Sunday. The No. 2 most ordered pizza is pepperoni with one veggie topping — be it mushrooms, black olives or green peppers.
