Today’s excuse to eat pizza

September 5 is, apparently, national cheese pizza day. I’ve done a lot of research on this topic (two minutes on Google) and have scientifically determined that this is a made-up holiday. Compared to other made-up holidays (I’m looking at you, Groundhog Day), this really has a cause I can get behind.

I suspect national cheese pizza day is a thinly veiled attempt to distract breakfast haters from the fact that this week is national waffle week, but I’ll take them both (and a side of antacid) without complaint.

It’s probably worth mentioning that today is just a preamble to October, which is national pizza month. If you need to warm up for the pizza onslaught, check out some of our favorite cheese pizzas:

    I’d have been happy to include good pizza from those towns, I just don’t have photos because I haven’t been.

    I notice the poor excuse for what was once a decent newspaper didn’t see fit to feature any of our wonderful pizza places in Bridgeport Fairfield Stratford and Trumbull. Guess this fits in with their support of Mayor Bill Finch’s policy to drive locally owned business out of Bridgeport!
