"But magic is like pizza: even when it's bad, it's pretty good." -- Neil Patrick Harris

Whether it's thin or deep-dish crust, sicilian or napolitan, made in a wood-burning oven, a coal-burning oven or re-heated in a microwave. We may disagree on what constitutes good, which toppings are appropriate or sacrilegious, but no one can deny the power pizza has over most of us, and America in general. 

According to Pizza Magazine's 2018 Pizza Power Report (yes, it sounds like something a Ninja Turtle would read), pizza is a $45.1 billion market in the U.S., with 75,000 pizzerias. Pizza is the fastest-growing segment of fast-casual restaurants.  

In Florida, there are over 4,600 pizza places. 

And sure, these food holidays are industry-concocted events created mostly for social media. But if you're getting pizza tonight, and chances are somewhere someone in Central Florida is, you might as well get it at a good deal.
