National Pizza Month is an annual designation observed in October… As if we needed any excuse to celebrate and indulge in the delectable, mouthwatering, satisfying meal that is pizza. It’s actually National Pasta Month and Italian National Heritage month as well, so feel free to spend October doing some major carb-loading. 

Pizza surfaced in 1889 when it was made for Italian King Umberto I and Queen Margherita on a trip in Naples. It’s been a fan-favorite in countries all over the world since then, and it’s easy to see why. 

A Little History About Pizza

National Pizza Month began in October 1984, and was created by the publisher of Pizza Today magazine and pizzeria owner, Gerry Durnell. He chose October because it’s the month the first issue of his magazine debuted. He lived in a small town called Santa Claus, Indiana, and realized there was nothing to support his growing pizza business, or the pizza industry in general. Since he created a pizza-themed magazine, as well as started an official month to celebrate this wonderful food, we thank him from the bottom of our stomachs!

So, If you don’t know what to make for dinner tonight; Pizza would be the perfect solution! Feel free to stop by our office for a case of yours today!
