All the pizza lovers out there need to get super excited as this Saturday, February 9, marks a very special occasion for all of us. It’s National Pizza Day!

National Pizza Day is where endless restaurants that cater to the cheesy, saucy goodiness of the Italian slice of food all year round do something super unique for their customers. What’s even better is that it falls during the weekend this year, so chances are you have a better shot at enjoying it than you would on a typical work day.

Check out these places that are going above and beyond for this delicious holiday.

This National Pizza Day DoorDash and IHOP have teamed up to create the ultimate mashup of America’s two favorite round foods: pancakes and pizza! That’s right, with the combination of pancakes and pizza you get a Pancizza (pronounced pan-keet-za). Think this is something Pizza Rat will bite into?

Here’s how to get your hands on the Pancizza:

  • What: IHOP will be serving up 7” individual-sized Pancizzas with a variety of signature IHOP syrups in three mouth-watering flavors including Original Buttermilk, Bacon and Cheddar, and Cupcake!
    • All Pancizza orders will be delivered in a custom-made DoorDash x IHOP co-branded pizza box that perfectly holds the Pancizza with room for condiments!
    • For first-time DoorDash users hoping to get their hands on the Pancizza, use the code PANCIZZA for a $0 delivery fee!*
  • When: You can order the Pancizza exclusively through DoorDash from 2/8 – 2/10 in New York while supplies last!
  • *Special Local Offer*: To celebrate, guests across the country can get delivery fees waived on any IHOP ‘N GO order of $10 or more placed through DoorDash from 2/8 – 2/14 by using promo code IHOPDELIVERY**
  • IRL Activation: IHOP is bringing a Pancizzeria Pop-Up in New York City on Saturday 2/9!

One of the top pizza spots in the trendy Flatiron district has several mouthwatering items to choose from for National Pizza Day.

  • Fourteen specialty organic flours(that are low-glycemichigher in fiber and lower in carbs. Customers get to pick which they’d like!
  • Healthy pizza, including the veganVegaccina, with Kite Hill Almond Cream Cheese and vegan house made spinach pesto. The dough is matured for at least five days, giving the yeast enough time to break down the sugars, making the gluten easier to digest.
  • House-made pasta using the same organic specialty semolina and flour; highlights include the Cavatelli with Branzino and Dill, and the Pappardelle with Colorado Lamb Ragu.
  • Appetizers offered include cauliflower hummus with organic tahini, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and house made focaccina, and Crostino with snap sugar pea puree, mint, hazelnuts and Romano D.O.P
  • Other healthy options include the Vegan Burger, a Beyond Meat vegan burger patty (which faithfully mimics the taste/texture of beef), vegan mayo, roasted tomato and micro greens on a pretzel bun, and the Dandelion & Eggsalad with hazelnuts, pecorino Romano D.O.P., parsley and cranberry dressing.

Tapping into the “light Italian” trend, Old Rose offers an approachable vision of healthyish, italian faire. Nestled on the ground floor of the infamous Jane Hotel, Old Rose is a handsome space boasting ceiling-high windows, Picasso-esque murals by Stefano Castronovo, and sleek, marble-top tables on a checkered marble floor. Plan a pizza-centric breakfast with the Brunch Pizza, a savory combination of egg, smoked potato, mozzarella and guanciale, a traditional italian meat akin to pancetta. Pair with the Bronze Monkey, a boozy combination of italian beer and fresh-squeezed OJ.

Using only locally grown or organic produce and dairy, pasta, bread/pizza dough and mozzarella are made by hand from scratch. Dishes are made to be shared, like the bistro’s famous Vodka Pizza, a crowd (and Instagram) favorite. Pair your pizza with an “Italian Margarita,” a zesty combination of tequila, amaretto, solerno, and lime.
