If there's ever a day worth celebrating, it's one that leads to cheesy, flavorful and — most importantly — free pizza.
When is National Pizza Day? Not to be confused with National Pi Day on March 14, this national food holiday falls on Feb. 9. So save the leftovers, cancel the night's meal plan and order takeout. There are free slices to score at plenty of eateries and grocery stores.
While many promos are nationwide, it's always a good idea to call up your favorite local spot and to see if they are honoring any type of free pizza deal.

If you don't want to dine out, you can always whip up a custom pie at home. Here are three of TODAY Food's favorite homemade pizza recipes:
Almost everyone knows a Margherita pizza, or at least a cheese pizza. To make this dish really come to life, go above and beyond with optimal ingredients.
The cheesy crust in this keto pie offers great Italian flavor with a powerful protein boost. I always top this pizza with extra vegetables. Everyone will love munching on this yummy dish and they'll be getting plenty of veggies, too.
Baking this pizza in a sheet pan gives it a super crispy crust. It's almost like a cross between fluffy focaccia bread and a traditional pizza pie. You get the best of both worlds here!
