The Presidential race is still undecided, but we DO have one clear Election Day winner … and that’s the pizza industry!
According to GrubHub … 5 of its top 8 most popular items ordered Tuesday were pizzas, and another one was a pizza-adjacent appetizer — garlic knots with marinara.
The popular food delivery app tells TMZ its most popular food item — based on how much more it was ordered — was the soppressata piccante pizza. That menu item saw a whopping 202% increase compared to other Tuesdays in October.
Right behind that was Nutella pizza — which was 192% more popular — followed by the first non-pizza food … meatball sliders at 181%.
Rounding out the top 8 was burrata pizza, the aforementioned garlic knots, vegan cheese pizza, loaded curly fries and finally another pizza … Sicilian.
Every good meal needs a stiff drink, and a margarita on the rocks actually ranked right behind the burrata pizza as one of GrubHub’s most-ordered items … with a 144% increase in popularity. Impressive, but Tres de Noviembre just doesn’t roll off the tongue like Cinco de Mayo
Many folks opted for an even stiffer drink … as the old-fashioned cocktail also saw a 121% rise on Election Day. We’re guessing those were ordered late in the evening as the results started tightening up.
Those who had room after pizza and booze did order dessert — tiramisu orders spiked 181% during dinner hours.
Based on the ongoing ballot counting drama, we say … pass the margs, por favor!
