Yes, There Really is a National Pizza Day
Petoskey’s Palette Bistro is Celebrating National Pizza Day with Two February Events
PETOSKEY, MI — When Italian baker Raffaele Esposito was asked by King Umberto I and Queen Margherita to make them a pizza on their visit to Naples back in 1889, he couldn’t have imagined the impact his pie would make throughout the world.
Did you know that Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza a day with pepperoni the most popular slice? Or, did you realize that the average person consumes 23 pounds of pizza each year? Whether you prefer Neapolitan, Chicago or some good ol’ Detroit style pizza, Petoskey’s Palette Bistro is celebrating National Pizza Day all day Sunday, February 9, with brunch, lunch and dinner deals sure to please all pizza lovers.
Palette Bistro offers wood-fired pizza everyday for lunch and dinner, and weekend. “We pride ourselves on using only the best, fresh ingredients with housemade crust,” explains general manager Joe Keedy. “Our style is reminiscent of traditional thin crust, Mediterranean pizzas with unique topping variations.” Everyday, Palette offers a traditional Margherita Pizza (of course, named after Queen Margherita) and a specialty pizza, plus guests can customize their pies from a myriad of options.
The pizza party doesn’t end on February 9, though. Palette Bistro will be hosting the annual Pizza Pizzazz on February 25. This annual event benefits The Petoskey Education Foundation where Palette Bistro donates $1 for every pizza sold.
Palette Bistro is located at 321 Bay Street, downtown Petoskey. For reservations, call 231.348.3321. Visit PALETTEBISTRO.com for more a full menu of options and an events calendar.
