Happy National Pizza Day
February 9th is National Pizza Day, to recognize that pizza should be celebrated, and possibly even be it's own food group. You can get almost anything on a pizza, and as I get older, I am enjoying more than just a sausage pizza. I don't eat pepperoni, it doesn't like me at all.
Some trivia about pizza:
- Pepperoni is the most popular, preferred by 36% of the people.
- Over 3 Billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year.
- More pizzas are sold on Super Bowl Sunday, than any other day of the year.
- Halloween is the second most popular day for eating pizzas.
I have seen debates on whether pineapple belongs on a pizza, and I fall firmly in the yes camp. I also enjoy sauerkraut on pizza, but, leave off the mushrooms and olives. I also enjoy having a homemade pizza, but, do enjoy ordering out as well. We have a lot of choices to get that pie, and even get it delivered with wings and bread-sticks.
With tonight being the broadcast of the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, North Korea, what better excuse do you have to order a pizza and celebrate National Pizza Day? Especially since it will be so cold outside.
What is your go-to pizza? Do you go with delivery, or frozen? Homemade? Pineapple or no?
