National Pizza Day was Feb. 9. Though it originated in Italy, we think it’s safe to say pizza is everybody’s favorite cheat food. So here are a few ways to plan ahead and celebrate next year.


Make Your Own Pizza

Ordering pizza delivery is a simple way to celebrate the holiday, but you can have a ton more fun making it yourself. Whether you’re a health nut or simply want to load on the toppings, you can find plenty of great recipes online. The great thing about pizza is there’s no wrong way to eat it — just ask the guy who first tossed pineapple on top.


Take a Class

Better yet, why not have someone else guide your hand? We’ve all seen pizza makers spinning dough like it’s nobody’s businesses. Now’s the perfect day to learn how to do it yourself so you can impress all of your friends. Hop online and check out pizza-making classes near you.


Experience Something New

Too often, when it comes to pizza, we stick to tried-and-true favorites. How about trying something new for the holiday? Has Hawai’ian pizza always seemed disgusting to you? Give it a try and you might find yourself surprised. Check out a local restaurant that isn’t afraid to mix up toppings for some incredibly unique tastes.


Go to the Source

Pizza was originally created in Italy. Specifically, it started with flatbreads on the streets of Naples. What better way to sample something than to head where it all started? Book a trip to Naples this holiday and see how true pizza tastes.
