It's National Pepperoni Pizza Day

September 20, 2018

Today is National Pepperoni Pizza Day. Yes, the people who make up holidays weren't just satisfied with National Pizza Day, which is February 9th. They had to give a holiday to one specific topping. But at least they picked the most popular topping. Here are some results from a new survey . . .

1. 66% of people say they like pepperoni.  That makes it the most popular pizza topping, but it DOES mean one-third of people don't like it. Sausage came in second, mushrooms came in third, and bacon was fourth.

2. 98% of people say they like pizza.

3. 22% say they can eat an entire pizza on their own.

4. And finally, 3% say they'd rather eat pizza than be in a relationship. 

Here are some pizza deals to celebrate: 

Domino’s: Customers can get large two-topping carryout pizzas for $5.99 each.

Papa John’s: Using promo code “PAPATRACK,” customers can get 25 percent off any regular-priced pizza online.

Pizza Hut: Customers who buy menu-priced pizza, get a medium pepperoni pizza for $1 when they use promo code “PEPPERONI2018.”
