OK, according to the National Day Calendar, it's actually National Pizza Day with all the works except anchovies Day. I have to agree with that.

I've never been a fan of anchovies. Why anyone would want them on a pizza is a mystery to me, but then again, I'm not a fan of pineapple on pizzas either. Everyone has their own preference, I guess.

My favorite type of pizza contains extra cheese, mushrooms, onion, sausage, pepperoni, bacon and if there's room, meatball. Meat lovers for sure. Good for me? Absolutely not, but once in a great while I think it can fit into my diet.

Another must for me is, it needs to be New York style, and round. Not that square pizzas or deep dish pizzas are bad, it's just that New York style is my 'go to' pizza.

Odd as it may seem, when I order pizza from my favorite pizza shop in the world (Corning area) I only order it plain. I love the simple taste of sauce and cheese with a touch of garlic powder on a slice of piping hot pizza. And it needs to be eaten right away. Yes, that means burning the roof of my mouth. Sounds crazy, but that's how I like pizza best.

So today, treat yourself to a pizza with everything you like on it. I would do the same, but during the week, I'm trying to be good to my diet. But this weekend, watch out. Saturday sounds like a good cheat day for a pizza with my favorite toppings. I've already put it in as a reminder in my calendar.
