National Pizza Day is not just some “hashtag holiday” – it’s been celebrated for decades! Observance began in 1984, and was created by Gerry Durnell, the publisher of Pizza Today magazine. Thanks, Gerry!
While the debate may rage on whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza, there is no doubt that whether it’s thin-layer, Chicago-style, deep dish, cauliflower crust or everything in between, pizza is an American favorite.
Indulge your love of the Italian/American pie on the official National Pizza Day, February 9—or any day of the week—with our sublime suggestions, which range from full-on decadence to zero-calorie coziness.
