Did you know that if Americans could only eat one food for the rest of their lives it would be pizza?
According to a 2018 survey by The Harris Poll, for the second year in a row 21 percent of the participants chose pizza as their top choice, and honestly, we won't even pretend to be surprised.
It's hard not to love pizza. It's peak comfort food. It's versatile with endless toppings, sauces, and crust options. You can easily make it at home, but if that's not your thing, your favorite pizza restaurant is just a phone call or mouse click away from delivering some to your door.
If all of this pizza talk has got you craving some, I've got some great news for you.
Saturday, February 9 is National Pizza Day, and even though it isn't a statutory holiday, that won't stop the celebrations.
This year, some of America's favorite pizza joints are making sure we can enjoy a slice or two, or a whole pie (no judgement here), for free or at least as part of a irresistible deal.
Here are all the freebies and deals for you to enjoy this weekend:
Get two pepperoni pizzas for just $10 when you order online.
Upgrade any large pizza to an XL for free simply by asking for the National Pizza Day offer at the register. Participating locations are also offering a large one-topping pizza, salad bar and three drinks for $25.99.
All week long, the chain will be offering large or pan-sized three-topping pizzas for $7.99. The only catch is your order must be placed online and picked up at the store.
Order online with the code "Medium 1" and receive a medium, one-topping pizza for just $1.
Enjoy any large specialty pie, including the limited-time Philly cheesesteak pizza, for $12.
A free slice of pizza is yours when you stop by Pilot Flying J now through Sunday. You will need to download their app to get this offer. If you're a first-time user, you will also be treated to a free drink.
Use the promo code "THANKYOU" at checkout to get any large pizza, including specialty and stuffed crust, for $10.99. The deal is available for carry-out only until February 17.

For every pizza order at a participating location, you will receive a coupon for a free cheese or one-topping personal pizza that can be used for future dine-in visits until the end of February.
