National Pizza Day is February 9th and we’re dishing up some easy ideas and recipes for you to celebrate.
Our family loves pizza, so having a day to celebrate is right up our alley. Whether you like Sicilian, thin crust, plain or lots of toppings, pizza lovers are a loyal lot. Although everyone has a favorite pizzeria, it’s always fun to cook it up at home. Our family has “Friday Pizza Night”, founded by my mom when I was a kid. We’ve carried on this tradition with our family — here’s our recipe for Homemade Margherita Pizza (pictured above).
To celebrate National Pizza Day, plan a make your own pizza activity for the family and/or friends. If you’re in a warm weather climate take the party outside and do a DIY Grilled Pizza Party. Otherwise, set up a toppings station and let everyone prepare their own favorite version, like Asparagus & Onion flatbread pizza. If you’re looking for a twist on traditional pizza, try our Italian Bread Pizza, or our version of “inside out pizza” Mozzarella and Pepperoni Panini paired with our healthy Tomato Soup — perfect for Panini dipping. And a National Pizza Day celebration wouldn’t be complete without dessert, so we’ve got Nutella Berry Dessert Pizza for the finale!
