Pizza is pretty much the perfect food. I mean, sure, too much will kill you, but there's no other way I'd rather go. Sunday, Feb. 9, is National Pizza Day -- a chance to not only celebrate the Circle of Awesomeness, but also save some money doing it. Below I've rounded up the best national and regional NPD deals so far. Just take note that some stores in some chains might not be participating in these offers.
Your local pizza joints might be serving up specials as well, so be sure to check their websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and so on.
I also found a great DIY option: The popular Ooni 3 outdoor pizza oven is on sale for $199. That's $76 off the regular price. This portable oven relies on wood pellets and can reach temperatures of over 900 degrees, meaning you can bake a pizza in about 60 seconds.
Blaze Pizza: On Feb. 9 you can get a free large pie from Blaze Pizza when you use Postmates and place an order of at least $25. Use the code PIZZADAY at checkout.
BJ's Restaurant: Through Sunday, you can get $10 off any order of $40 or more with promo code 10OFF40.
Caulipower: By any chance are you expecting? If your little bambino arrives on pizza day, Caulipower will give you a year of free pizza! Check out #BornOnPizzaDay.
Chuck E. Cheese: Between Feb. 9 and 14, you can get a free upgrade to extra-large when you order any large pizza.
Cicis Pizza: Get three medium one-topping pizzas to go for $12.
Marco's: Between now and Feb. 23, buy one large pizza and get a medium cheese pizza free with promo code BOGOCHZ.
Uno Pizzeria: Apparently this varies depending on location, but when you buy one pizza at regular price, you can get a second one for $7. (Might be $6, might be "half price." Check your local restaurant for the specifics.) Note that this is for carryout only.
