It is National Pizza Day today, not to be confused with National Pizza Party Day (Third Friday of May), National Cheese Pizza Day (September 5), National Pepperoni Pizza Day (September 20), National Sausage Pizza Day (October 11), or National Pizza With Everything Except Anchovies (November 12).
I'm not making this stuff up. I couldn't, nor would I. Who needs a day to celebrate one of the perfect foods?
Now, there are many arguments to be made about this perfect food, which is to say that although we may eat pizza often, what we like and where we like to get it are cause for argument.
Pie or tray? Thin crust or deep dish? White or Red? And with those three out of the way, what do you want on it? The options are endless.
But regardless of your persuasions for a pie or a tray, white or red, or even crust or toppings, Lehigh Valley is full of restaurants to get your fill.
Here are nine of our favorite places to get yourself a slice, in alphabetical order:
The Bethlehem Parlour (1114 West Broad St., Bethlehem)
The Brick (1 West Broad St., Bethlehem)
Colonial Pizza & Spaghetti House (136-138 Spring Garden St., Easton)
Gio Italian Grill (6465 Village Ln., Macungie)
Jack's Slice (3400 Tilghman St., Allentown)
Lorenzo's Italian Family Restaurant (1402 Broadway, Fountain Hill)
Matey's Famous Steaks & Pizza (1305 Broadway, Bethlehem)
Sette Luna (219 Ferry St., Easton)
Stefano's Sicilian Grille (5364 Nor Bath Blvd., Northampton)
Obviously, there are more places to grab a slice. But before the internet descends upon me for all of the places I left off this list, please answer the other three big questions if you're so inclined; Pie or Tray? Thin Crust or Deep Dish? White or Red?
Well... Have at it internet!
