October Is National Pizza Month

October is National Pizza Month and there are plenty of deals to enjoy. According to Pizza.com, October was designated as National Pizza Month back in 1984. The observance is credited to Pizza Today publisher Gerry Durnell. Today, it is a time when pizzerias worldwide celebrate National Pizza Month with deals, sales, new pizza combinations, and various themes. As October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many pizzerias promote both pizza and breast cancer awareness. Some pizzerias tie-in a Halloween theme with their pizza menu. You'll find that October is an exciting month for pizza choices and there are opportunities to support charities as well. Many pizzerias opt for pink pizza boxes with the pink ribbon symbol during October. Others pledge to donate a portion of profits to breast cancer awareness organizations.

Some consumers on social media networks have indicated they will buy more pizza during October from pizzerias that donate money to breast cancer awareness organizations. Breast Cancer Awareness isn't the only cause or charity that teams up with pizzerias during October. Look for other opportunities to donate to causes like the ASPCA and Humane Society.
