WARNING: YOUR STATE MAY BE COVERED WITH FROZEN PIZZA

 WARNING: YOUR STATE MAY BE COVERED WITH FROZEN PIZZA
 WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine waking up to radio reports that "Schools and businesses have been closed because of frozen pizza." Sounds ridiculous, but if all the frozen pizza sold in the United States each year was spread across six states, those radio reports could be true.
 According to the National Frozen Pizza Institute, more than 1.8 billion slices of frozen pizza are sold each year in the United States. That works out to be approximately 511,366 square miles of frozen pizza -- enough to completely cover New York, California, Texas, Maine, Delaware and Rhode Island combined!
 The continuing seven percent annual growth of the frozen pizza industry could yield even more pizza to cover other states. The National Frozen Pizza Institute, which represents 40 companies in the $1 billion frozen pizza industry, said frozen pizza is now America's favorite frozen food.
 January has been designated National Frozen Pizza Month to highlight accomplishments of the industry. As part of the January 1992 celebration, grocery store managers across the nation will set up frozen pizza displays in their frozen food section.
