I ate pizzas on Sundays.
I ate pizza on Sundays.

Pizza is both uncountable and countable. In these sentences, is there any difference in meaning? Is one of them wrong?


Interestingly, this question can be best answered by the answer to this question about recipes. For the lazy, it basically states that if you're referring to an amount of food that is less than a whole instance of that type of food, you use the uncountable; otherwise use the countable. So unless you ate multiple pizzas, the second example is correct.
