Pepperoni. Hawaiian. Veggie. Meat-Lovers. Chicago-style deep dish, or New York-style thin crust.
No matter where you fall in the great pizza debate, there’s one thing we can all agree on: pizza is one of the greatest meals of all time. There’s nothing more deliciously comforting than that mouth-watering combo of dough, cheese, and sauce.
Any way you slice it, pizza will always bring joy and satisfaction. And with National Pizza Day coming up this Wednesday, February 9th, it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a slice (or three).
So, we’ve put together a list of 3 fun ways you and your family can celebrate National Pizza Day this year.
Make Your Own Pizza Night
Homemade pizzas are one of the best meals to make at home with your family and friends. Everyone can customize their pizzas exactly to their liking, making this an especially fun activity for kids.
Stock up on a variety of veggies, cheeses, and meats and set up pizza-making stations for the whole family. Get creative and load up your pie with whatever topping combinations you can think of—and trade slices to see who’s pizza-making skills take the cake.
Have family members with dietary restrictions? You can grab ingredient substitutes to suit everyone’s diet, from paleo to vegan to keto and beyond. Try out our Coconut Flour to make a gluten-free alternative to traditional pizza crust.
Order in From Your Favorite Pizza PlaceTake a load off and spoil yourself to a mid-week treat by ordering a pie from your favorite neighborhood pizzeria.
This is best enjoyed with a movie, comfy clothes and good company. Why not host your own at-home pizza party while supporting a local restaurant?
Bonus points on this one: you get to skip the clean-up.
Try a Dessert PizzaA little slice of heaven doesn’t have to be cheesy and saucy to hit the spot. For a sweet new take on a classic savory dish, try out a dessert pizza this National Pizza Day.
There are many ways to create a dessert pizza—bake up a brownie or cookie as a base, and cover it with deliciously decadent toppings. For a more health-conscious take, you can include fresh fruit. We love this Apple Crumble Flatbread by Creme de la Crumb, and this Bananas Fosters Dessert Pizza from Spicy Southern Kitchen.
With all the craziness of the world right now, National Pizza Day is the perfect way to slow down and indulge in a comforting treat. Sweet, savory, homemade or delivered, pizza is always a good choice. Go ahead, grab another slice.
