The History of National Pizza Month

Although pizza has been around for years, it wasn’t until 1984 that October became the National Pizza Month. The holiday celebration was created by the publisher of Pizza Today magazine and pizzeria owner, Gerry Durnell. Why October? It’s the month that the first issue of this magazine debuted. The magazine, together with the official month to celebrate this food, led to the growth of the pizza business as well as the pizza industry as a whole.
