Not just any kind of pizza day, today is National Cheese Pizza Day. Mark your calendar: It's always on September 5.
To commemorate this occasion, the Saline Eastgate merchants network has put together a video highlighting cheese pizza options on Michigan Avenue between Industrial and North Maple. Remarkably, all five of our pizzarias got started right here in Michigan.
Additionally, did you know that the most popular days for pizza delivery are Halloween, Thanksgiving Eve, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, and Super Bowl Sunday? A 2013 study conducted by food delivery provider Foodler found that cheese pizzas constitute 37% of all North American consumer pizza orders.
There are plenty of other days for other pizzas, of course. Ten days from now it will be National Pepperoni Pizza Day, and next month is National Sausage Pizza Day. The day for all types of pizza falls during the first half of February.
Regardless of your preference, cheese pizza is the grandaddy of them all.
