Yes, it’s a “day.” Maybe not so much in Kalamazoo, but here in Chicago, pizza is a thing. It’s our thing.
As any “real” Chicagoan knows, February 9th, 2022 is National Pizza Day. While you may have your favorite spot for Chicago Style, this is a step away from the deep dish (forgive me) and a couple of tasty recommendations from Roman-style to brick-oven, here’s a list of where to order your favorite kind of pizza for dine-in, carryout or delivery.
Enjoy a little California, without having to get on a plane, get a Covid test, wait in line for your bag and on and on.
