National Pizza Month

In a business serving pizza, one should probably be reminded that October is the national pizza month in the United States. Although the contribution of the first pizzeria in this country can not be ignored, it was actually a returning US soldier who had fought in Italy during World War II, with whom he got hungry for the pizza home and its popularity at the top pushed off. The American love of pizza is growing and now October is the official national pizza month in North America.

It was first celebrated in the United States during 1984 (although many people wrongly claim that 1987) was named the National Pizza Month by the founder of Pizza Today magazine, Gerry Durnell on October, Those who chose that month because the first issue of their magazine began, that year was October. Darnel was a pizzeria owner in the small town of Santa Claus, Indiana, when he realized that there was no periodic or trademark publication to support his growing pizza business or industry in general. Along with the creation of a national pizza oriented magazine, along with the introduction of a national pizza month, fully completed its objectives and solved the problem.

Today, national pizzas are celebrated in most parts of the United States and in Canada as well. Although designation can be somewhat unnecessary in this country, these days in the United States can be considered pizza month almost every month. People really do not need a special month for pizza in a country where there are an estimated 63,000 pizzerias and 9 4% of Americans eat pizza at least once a month. Statistics are available every year in the U.S. Approximately 45 slices of pizza are equal to consumption and show that Americans are certified by consuming 100 acres of pizza per day, or 350 slices per second.
