It doesn’t take a whole lot of arm-twisting to get us to eat pizza—whether it’s to celebrate National Pizza Day, or any old day. Sit back, relax, grab a slice—preferably from one of these places—and celebrate the holiday accordingly.
Joe’s Pizza, NYC
Stop in for a slice at this small West Village take-out establishment nestled next to Washington Square. Take note: it’s cash only, but the slices are cheap and there’s an ATM conveniently located outside. Pull up a seat at the counter overlooking the street for people watching and delicious pizza.
Luna Pizza, West Hartford
Luna is a great option for those moseying around downtown. Grab a slice of their popular White Pizza to fuel you for a day of shopping, or go for the whole pie with options like White Clam and Buffalo Chicken.
Birch & Vine, St. Petersburg
While Birch & Vine might not be known for it’s pizza, we’re still drooling over the flatbread. Located right on Beach Drive in St. Pete, this perfect weekend spot offers reprieve from the heat after a long day in the sun. Make sure to hit The Canopy rooftop bar for drinks after dinner.

Pizzeria Verita, Burlington
We couldn’t make this list without tossing in a little hometown love! Our headquarters are in South Burlington, Vermont, and dining local is one of our specialties. So when it comes to finding that perfect slice, we certainly aren’t without options. Located down by the iconic Church Street Marketplace, Pizzeria Veritas serves up crispy Neapolitan-style pizza to hungry locals. On the off (if not altogether impossible) chance you aren’t feeling up for pizza, grab their Insalata Colorata, made with seasonal beets, avocado, and locally grown microgreens.
Hot Mama’s Pizza, Seattle
A Capitol Hill go-to since 1995, this pizza joint makes delicious New York-style pizza in the heart of the rainy city. From their famous Pesto and Greek pies to their Chicken Garlic, grab any slice for a perfect way to end your day. Mama’s Pizza also offers free delivery to anyone within the Capitol Hill and Downtown Seattle area until 11 pm, so you can get your pizza on whenever the right moment strikes.

Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. , Chicago
Chicago's most famous pizza parlors might attract visitors from near and far, but who wants to wait an hour or longer when you’re craving deep dish? Swing into Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. for one of their pizza pot pies, which will have you ditching the slices and putting on your stretchy pants for the whole shebang instead. If it helps, not all touristy touches are lost-- Pizza Oven Grinder has roots in the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Ahh, if walls could talk...
