Hold the toppings, please! National Cheese Pizza Day is celebrated annually on September 5 and who says you have to be fancy to be good? Granted, there’s pizza with pineapple, barbecued chicken pizza and the old standbys, pizza with anchovies or salami. But nothing surpasses the basics of holding a gently folded, single slice of melty deliciousness — the cheese pizza.
Each year, more than 2 billion pounds of pizza cheese is produced in the U.S. alone. So on this special day, savor a classic slice of ooey gooey cheese pizza for yourself and share a slice or two with some of your very best friends.
