Today is one of those unofficial holidays I can get behind and don’t mind celebrating.  Let’s celebrate pepperoni pizza day in Augusta & Aiken.  When it comes to pizza, the battle over what goes on pizza will rage on forever.  Kind of like the chicken or the egg, there’s the big pizza question.  Does Pineapple belong on pizza?  And the simple answer is YES.

In honor of the day, you might be in shock to find that pepperoni is the most popular topping for pizza.  According to PIZZATODAY.COM, pepperoni comes before sausage, mushrooms, extra cheese, and bacon.
