National Pizza Day is dedicated to appreciating pizza, a baked flatbread that is topped with tomato sauce and cheese.
The pizza was invented in Naples, Italy around the 10th century, and has since grown to become one of the most popular foods in America.
In 1905, America’s first pizzeria, Lombardi’s, opened in New York.
According to a study done in 2013 by food delivery provider Foodler, 37% of North American consumers order a plain cheese pizza, 52% order meat toppings and the three most ordered pizza toppings are pepperoni, mushrooms and onions.
