 Deep Dish Pizza Day

Pizza Chef

Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is always held on April 5

Many major cities have a culinary specialty that they are known for. Chicago, Illinois is famous world-wide, for it's Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza.  These pizzas are so great, that Chicago couldn't keep the recipe a secret. Nowadays, you can get a deep dish pizza almost anywhere in the U.S., and in many parts of the world, too. Many people say Chicago makes the best pizzas in the world. So, it only stands to reason, that the best deep dish pizza is only made in Chicago. We concur.

 Today, people all over the world celebrate Deep Dish Pizza Day.  We have no doubt about what you will do today, to savor and enjoy this special holiday.

The deep dish pizza was created in 1943 in Chicago, Illinois. It was created by Ike Sewell, founder of Pizzeria Uno. The deep dish pizza recipe calls for a deep, buttery, and crunchy crust. If you follow the original recipe, and we hope you do, the cheese is on top of the dough, and the sauce is on top of the cheese. You can add any other toppings, as you prefer.

Did You Know? The first pizza was made in the country of Greece.... not Italy.


Celebrate today with a Chicago style deep dish  pizza, with any and all of your favorite toppings.

History and Origin of "National Deep Dish Pizza Day":

Our research dug deep, to find as much as we could about Deep Dish Pizza Day. This holiday was created by Chicago, IL based Uno Pizzeria and Grill, to celebrate the opening of their first restaurant outside of Chicago on April 5, 1979 in Boston, MA.

When this holiday event was first created, it was called  Deep Dish Pizza Day. The word "National" was somehow added in 2017, for no apparent reason. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations making this a true national day.
