Put down that burger — today is National Pizza Day

For the PMQ Pizza Magazine and team every day is pizza day. But since the media has designated Feb. 9 as the official celebration occasion for everything pizza, (including gluten-free pies as pictured) we're more than happy to jump on the bandwagon.

According to in Houston, Feb. 9 is the unofficial holiday of America's favorite food. The ABC-13 morning team certainly has their favorite slices of Pizza. Tom Koch says he always goes for the works or a supreme pizza. Casey Curry likes to load up her cheese pizza with pineapple and jalapeno slices.Patricia Lopez loves a slice of thin crust pepperoni pizza, while Samica Knight only wants hamburger and nothing else on hers. Then there's Don Nelson who says he's gotta have two slices: One margherita with real buffalo cheese and one slice with anchovies and onions.

The station asked their viewers last August to tell us their go-to spots for a slice of pie. Click here for the top 10.
