It is a matter of rabbinic dispute whether birkat hamazon must be said after eating certain other bread-like foods such as pizza. Except when in teaching situations, Birkat hamazon is typically read individually after ordinary meals. Sometimes it's also sung aloud on special occasions such as the Shabbat and festivals. The length of the different Birkat hamazon can vary considerably, from bentsching under half a minute to more than 5 minutes. The scriptural source for the requirement to recite a blessing after a meal is Deuteronomy "When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the L ORD your God for the good land which He gave you". The process is often referred to as bentsching  ; the word "bentsch" means to bless.
