National Pizza Pie Day is Today, February 9!! Celebrate the

It’s National Pizza Pie Day for there’s no excuse for not indulging yourself 
in one our country’s favorite dishes... Pizza.  


It doesn’t matter if you buy, make or have it delivered, we Americans eat approximately 46 acres of pizza a year. That’s about 5.75 pizzas a year.   

I have no idea when I had my first pizza... however I have a feeling it was one my mother made from Chef Boyardee... you know the one in the box.   When I was growing up there were no pizza delivery places and I doubt there were any
Pizzerias or Pizza Parlors and certainly Dominos or Papa John’s were just seeds being planted in some entrepeneur’s head.

And today.... there are Friday night pizza nights with the family.... pizza by the slice... special pizza ovens and stones.... and much more.  

36% of all pizzas ordered are pepperoni pizzas

Pizza most likely originated not in Italy but in Greece or Rome.

Most believe that the first pizzeria was Lombardi’s in New York City (1905).

17% of all restaurants in the U.S. are pizzerias.

If you don’t have time to make your own, here are some

Now you're talking my language is one of my favorites.  I think you just gave me a reason not to worry if I indulge and don't "take it off in the rain" this week.  Today is my Thursday with Mickey, guess what's for dinner?  You got, thanks for the idea.  I'm going to cheat though and buy pizza shells and put on our favorite toppings.

Rob- Hope you got your pizza!  We ended up having home made pizza tonight. 

Carol- i think many have National Pizza day at least every week.

Lisa- I was never a big pizza fan until I was older. But love it now. 

Gita- I think there's a special food day every day.  I love the dessert ones.

Edward- we all love pizza and it's jus so easy to eat!

Gayle- we probably have every day of the year covered.

BARFF- well it's still being made by you and served by you and shared with you.

BLiz- absolutely... you're always a step ahead of the game anyway!!!

Brenda- LOL... I'm sure there's a National salad day or national broccoli day but for some reason they just don't seem like they'd be as much fun to write about. 

Dorie- then please tell your Geno Happy Birthday!

Lou- for sure.  Anthony's Coal Fire or Mellow Mushroom?

Anna- no guilt pizza day!  

Kasey- We had homemade pizza tonight and loved it!

I was amused to see your title in the recommended box. It seems there is a 'day' for just about everything. It just so happened that my wife was making a pizza for our supper.
