You're doing it all wrong if you need an excuse to eat some pizza. Nonetheless, here it is: January 12-19 is National Pizza Week. It's time to celebrate the only way one can celebrate such a joyous and unnecessary holiday. With pizza.

Restaurants and chains across the country are observing not by simply waiting for your order, but by offering discounts on the doughy, cheesy goodness you crave (even if they might be saving their best deals for National Pizza Day in February). This week, you can find deals from Pizza Hut, Blaze Pizza, Marco's Pizza, Fresh Brothers, and many other restaurants that hope to be your knight in shining armor.
