Thanks to the people who opened the first pizzeria in the United States in New York’s Little Italy in 1905, pizza has become without question one of America’s favorite foods. You can grab a quick slice for lunch, gather everyone to share a pie, and if you’re lucky enough to have one, that leftover slice makes a great breakfast. When you want to really dig in, nothing beats a pie with everything, especially if you leave off the salty fish. Rejoice pizza lovers, because while we have national days for a lot of things, none can make your mouth water like National Pizza With Everything (Except Anchovies) Day on November 12th. Forget the debate over toppings, and let your favorite pizza restaurant spoil you with the works.
What’s the deal with the poor anchovies? People may argue about this topping every other day of the year, but on National Pizza With Everything (Except Anchovies) Day the little fish get left out. Anchovies are processed in salt brine, leaving a flavor that some find wonderful and others just don’t care for. But even people who otherwise love their anchovies can understand leaving them off a pizza that has other ingredients. You don’t want the salt and fish taste to overpower the fantastic collection of meats and vegetables on a pie with the works. Anchovies are best on pizza when they are the only topping, or combined with a something like black olives that carry their own saltiness.
So mark your calendars for November 12th, gather your friends and family, and let Chick-N-Pizza Works help you celebrate by ordering your pizza with everything but the anchovies online at Chick-n-pizza.com. Add some wings to give yourself a classic combo, and don’t forget the other sides and desserts for an unforgettable meal on this day of celebration.
