National Pizza Month – October 2020

Hey pizza lovers, it’s National Pizza month in the states and that means….. eat more Pizza.

National Pizza Month first started in October 1984 when Indiana pizza shop owner Gerry Durnell published a magazine called “Pizza Today” and declared October as National Pizza Month. (Sounds like a good idea to me).

So, every year on October 1st until October 31st I guess you can eat as much pizza as you like, that’s what I reckon anyway.

Here are a few fun facts form National Today about pizza.
