For lovers of ooey, gooey cheese and classic Italian flavors, is there really anything better than piping hot slice of pizza? If that pizza is free, then absolutely.
On Saturday, pizza lovers will be able to enjoy plenty great deals (and even a few freebies!) because Feb.9 is National Pizza Day.
According to National Today, which surveyed 1,000 people, only 2 percent of those questioned claimed to dislike the cheesy staple — talk about an uneven pie chart. They also discovered that the most popular pizza toppings nationwide are cheese, pepperoni and sausage.
Just don't tell Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his cohort of pro-Hawaiian pizza fans, but pineapple was ranked as the least favorite topping. Whichever side of the pineapple-pizza debate people land, here are some deals worth the cheat meal.
