For Britons, Pizza Beats Indian Curry

According to the Economic Times, “Britons like pizzas more than spicy curries, spending about 330 million pounds on Indian meals against 749 million pounds on the Italian favourite.”

“Last year, about 466 million pizzas were sold as compared to 191 million curries, The Sun reported Monday. There are about 12,700 restaurants that serve the Italian dish while there are 12,000 Indian eateries and 10,500 fish and chip shops in Britain. Over 90 percent of Britons now eat pizza at least once a week. Pizza sales have gone up as they are fast, fit in with busy lives and with TV viewing, say experts.”
