zza isn't exactly known as a traditional summer food. But this is America. Where pizza's a food for ALL seasons. And all occasions. And all times of day.
-Zagat just released the results of their first-ever national pizza survey. Here are some highlights . . .

Have you ever bought clothes, kept the tags on them while you wore them out . . . then returned them? If you're a man, probably not. If you're a woman . . . yeah, there's a decent chance you have. Even though that's DIRTY.
--According to a new survey, about one out of every eight women say yeah, they've bought some expensive clothes, worn them out, then returned them the next day.
--The authors of the survey say the actual number is probably even higher . . . these were just the 12.5% of women willing to admit it.
--Of the women who admitted to doing that, about half say the main motivation was the money . . . they couldn't afford to keep the clothes. About one in five say they like to do it for the RUSH . . . it's like stealing, but feels less risky.
--Women are most likely to buy an outfit for a WEDDING, wear it once, then return it. Christenings are second, black tie events are third, and Christmas parties are fourth.
