February 9th National Pizza Day

So we all know pizza is one of the world’s favorite foods. We know that the best selling is pepperoni. We know we all eat a lot more of it than we should. But did you know, as far as my research has gone, that pizza actually started with the Greeks, not the Italians! As the story goes, and I could be wrong, the idea of the pizza came from Alexander the Great’s troops as they put flat bread on top of shields and covered it with herbs and spices, and maybe a little protein, and ate it on the march. Maybe true, maybe not, but it sounds interesting.

How to celebrate – Support small and local businesses and order a piazza from a mom and pop. Make your own pizza. Have a pizza party.
