Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Super Bowl Sunday is one day we on average eat the most food, other than Thanksgiving. One fan favorite, Pizza. Pizza shops in Fargo continue to deal with customers, on one of the busiest days of the year.

"Thank you for calling pizza hut..."

Leonard Beck is the general manager of Pizza Hut on 13th Avenue.

"This is our signature pepperoni pizza."

This is the 12th Super bowl he has worked.

LEONARD: "This store is one of the highest volume stores we have for Pizza Hut so this is one of the most intense, but still we do a really good job and try to service everyone we can."

In preparation Beck had to order 50 extra pounds of green peppers and onions, 300 pounds of cheese, and hundreds of extra sheets of dough.

LEONARD: "Over the Superbowl, probably five to six hundred just in about three hours."

That number nearly doubles the amount of pizzas sold on a typical Sunday, and instead of the normal 9 employees who work, there will be around 40 throughout the day.

LEONARD: "We have everyone on deck."

It isn't only The workers answering the hundreds of phone calls or the ones who are actually making the pizzas who are going to be busy, delivery drivers are expecting to be coming in and out of this door all day long.

DEREK: "Normal Sunday I'll probably deliver about 20 to 25 deliveries, today I'll probably do 30 to upwards of 40."

Derek Twogood is one of those delivery drivers delivering hot fresh pizzas right to your door.

DEREK: "It is relatively quite a bit, if you are doing a lot of deliveries it is probably about four of five an hour and working about an 8 hour shift, you know, that's pretty busy."

So if you are one of the 17 percent of Americans enjoying pizza on this super bowl Sunday. Beck and all of his employees are making sure your pizza is perfect from start to sizzling finish.

Nearly 160 pounds of chicken wings will be sold from that location.
