November 12th is National Pizza With The Works Except Anchovies Day…
“The Works” when talking pizza means lots of things to lots of people, but may include any or all of the following toppings (and anything else thing that sparks your taste buds and imagination):
cheese – you name it: Gouda, Mozzarella, Parmesan and more
herbs/spices – you name it: cilantro, cinnamon, garlic, parsley and more
pineapple – and any fruit you find Pizza interesting
But hey, what’s with the Except Anchovies thing on The Works?
Anchovies are small, salt-water fish packed in small tins or jars in oil and/or salt…
Because Anchovies are salty and may overwhelm the taste of other pizza toppings, there’s this special day to leave the anchovies off your pizza. (Not that you needed this special day!)
Enjoy a “The Works” pizza today. Get your kids and grandkids involved in the fun and topping choices… Except Anchovies, of course. Just, at least, for today.
Get your toppings on!
