A Love Letter to Pizza

February 9 is National Pizza Day in the USA, and since good ol’ Oz hasn’t made this glorious holiday official, we’re happy to steal and dedicate this day to the best of all major food groups: pizza.

Besides being the perfect shape that helpfully points you where it needs to go (your mouth), pizza is the most versatile of foods, able to handle almost any protein, vegetable, and sauce that you can throw at it (we can tolerate pineapple, but any pizza that includes mayonnaise and corn can burn).

This staple food has nursed us through many late study/crying nights, fun get-togethers, hangovers, parties, and midnight cravings. It’s the perfect meal for any occasion, to celebrate when you’re happy and to cheer you up when you’re sad. It’s only right that we take this day to celebrate everything pizza has done for us and to show our appreciation.

Pizza is love. Pizza is life.


Happy Pizza Day!


Now go get a pizza.
