February 9th National Pizza Day

I don’t know hardly anybody who doesn’t like pizza. It seems to be that one food that nearly everyone can find a flavor or style that they can enjoy. Deep-dish, thin crust, Sicilian, Neapolitan, Greek, Hawaiian… you name it, someone makes it. You can cover it in all sorts of different meats, vegetables and even fruit! What’s not to love!?! You can have it for supper, lunch or even breakfast! It is believed that the first pizza ever sold was in Naples, Italy back in 1738. The first made may have come from the Greeks in Alexander’s army moving across the Middle East. Who knows, but we do know that over 3 billion are sold every year in the US.

How to celebrate – Have some pizza! Try a style of pizza you haven’t had before. Make a list of as many toppings as you can remember.
