There’s a food holiday out there for everything but today (February 9) is National Pizza Day and we can definitely get behind celebrating this one; not just today, but every day. In honor of this delicious holiday, we wanted to share a few of our favorite pies from artisan pizzas by Chef / Partner Jeff Mahin at Stella Barra Pizzeria to decadent deep dish at Foodlife. Here’s where you can honor National Pizza Day!

Pizzeria Via Stato

The pizza of the month is La Quercia ‘Nduja, fingerling potatoes, ricotta, farm egg, onions and basil. If you haven’t tried one of Pizzeria Via Stato’s crispy thin crust pizzas, now’s the time! To make a reservation or place a carry-out order at Osteria Via Stato or Pizzeria Via Stato, click here.

Kids can celebrate National Pizza Day by making their own creations at the pizza bar! Your little chefs can choose red or white pizza and add any toppings they like for $4.95.
