About This Quiz

You've got your state birds, state flowers and state nicknames, but do you know what should really be included in this list? A state pizza. That's because each state in the US is known for their own variation of this savory pie. And that's exactly what we're going to celebrate in this tasty quiz: pizza!

As you probably know, pizza is generally comprised of a crust, sauce, cheese and all kinds of toppings. It is then (usually) baked in an oven so that all the flavors blend together harmoniously. In somewhere like Texas, you might find flavors that remind you of your favorite BBQ joint (especially with toppings like BBQ sauce, ranch, chicken and roasted red peppers). But if you head up north to Illinois, you'll be greeted with the famous deep-dish pizzas. With the sauce on top of plenty of cheese, proteins, veggies and a very thick crust, this style of pizza puts a unique spin on traditional favorites. So the real question for today is: what state do you currently live in? Whether it's New York with their famous "plain" pizzas or Michigan with their Detroit-style pies, you'll get to build your very own savory creation with this yummy quiz!
