Pizza is an important staple in the diets of Canadian consumers. In fact, according to the 2018 Canadian Pizza Consumer Trend Report, 75 percent of all Canadians report eating pizza at least once a month.
Millennials and even younger generations aren't satisfied with eating the same old pizza as their parents and grandparents. They are always looking for the latest and greatest in flavors and experiences, and many of the overall trends for these demographics reflect their food preferences.
The types of pizza and the toppings we enjoy are as diverse as the people worldwide who love pizza. That's no different here in Canada. With endless options including different types of cheeses, sauces, meats, vegetables, dough types, and even shapes, the quality of our pizza is pretty much only limited by our creativity.

As summertime emerges, consumers inevitably have the urge to travel more and eat out more. Enjoying a hot dog, pizza, or nachos at your favourite ballpark, swimming pool, concert, zoo, or amusement park always serves as a special treat for everyone in the family.
