How to do countif/contains formula

I have a sheet that has drop-down multi-select columns. I am trying to create a metrics sheet that shows the number of people that selected a specific drop-down menu item. For example:

Choose 3 favorite foods: burgers, pizza, sushi, pasta, chicken

They selected: Burgers Pizza Sushi

But I want to know how many people selected just Pizza in the favorite foods column.

Is there a way to do that?
