FOODPRINT, PIZZA, and the WATER CONNECTION?

Really? I don’t have it often, however pepperoni pizza has been known to cross my palate. And, because I am a subscriber to the FoodPrint Newsletter, I just became aware of this fact: One serving of pepperoni pizza uses 53 gallons of water!

Why should we care how much water we use by the choices we make for our daily intake of food? Well, one answer is to conserve water right?
