Arguably, every day of every month is a pizza celebration. Can you think of a day when it's a bad idea to eat pizza? Thanksgiving? You'd miss out on mashed potatoes and stuffing, but turkey pizza would definitely be the next best thing to a true Thanksgiving Day spread.

Despite knowing pizza is good year 'round and that there are pizza deals constantly popping up, October is National Pizza Month because everything gets its 15 minutes. Even the Inhumans and punning detective gnomes.
