Have a Pizza Bagel Today

February 9th is National Pizza Day. Every year this special date is observed. What is your favorite pizza?? Do you like it as thin crust, Chicago-style, deep dish or maybe its a combination. It seems in America we all have our own choice. Did you know:

Pepperoni is the most popular pizza at 36% all pizza pies ordered Over 3 billion pizzas are sold in USA each year. That's not to mention the 1 billion frozen pizzas

Of all US restaurants 17% are pizzerias. (I personally think there must have been more when I was a kid) The first pizzeria to open was in Naples Italy in 1738 The first pizzeria in the United States was Gennaro Lombardi which opened in 1895 in New York City.

Each year Americas consume on average 23 lbs. of pizza per person each year.

Today is also bagel day. Bagels are in the bread family but unlike many bagels are boiled then baked. Boiling helps create a soft inside while keeping a crisp outside. Bagels originated in Poland during the early 17th century. Bagels are now a billion dollar seller in the United States. With a great variety of flavors and varieties bagels have became very popular in the USA
