We don’t typically make a big deal out of silly national food holidays, but National Pizza Day, which occurs this Tuesday, just hits different. Who doesn't like pizza?
Homemade dough, savory sauces and fresh, quality toppings are cornerstones of a good pie, and we rounded up three locally owned joints that will be slingin’ sauce for dine-in, delivery and takeout on the big day.
