Legend has it that on this day in 1889, Queen Margaret of Naples tried the pizza and loved it so much it was named after her. It is said that the Pizza Margherita was first created at Pizzeria Brandi, in Naples, Italy, but it has been speculated that this is a myth, as this style of pizza had been common for years before this date. But nonetheless, it is still a day well celebrated with an interesting tale.
5.) National Cheese Pizza Day – September 5th

7.) International Beer & Pizza Day – October 9th
If you love beer and pizza, then October 9th is the day you can celebrate the amazing combo! Why does beer go so well with pizza? It is such a great combo because each really enhances the flavor of the other. But keep in mind, not all beer goes with all pizza. Some are better paired than others. For example, if you have a lighter pizza, such as cheese, go with a lighter beer. The same goes for heartier beers and pizzas. These combos taste much better together. Be sure to celebrate this holiday with your favorite pizza and beer combos.
8.) National Sausage Pizza Day – October 11th
That’s right, you can celebrate that delicious sausage on your pizza. This holiday is for meat lovers. On this day, try something new, like adding extra spices or try different types of sausage pizza!

10.) National Calzone Day – November 1st
A Calzone is a pizza, but the “toppings” are used as a “filling,” and inside the crust, instead of on top. It is basically a pizza you can take with you on the go, but be aware, they’re still messy! Celebrate this national holiday by going to a local pizzeria and ordering a calzone!
