We’re not usually the kind to get too excited about the never-ending string of national “holidays.”

But National Pizza Day this Saturday?

Well, that was worth at least sharing some delicious-looking photos. And it definitely calls for a slice or two to celebrate.

Here are three can’t-miss ways to mark Feb. 9 and possibly the most perfect food created.

Perfect pairing

The only thing better than pizza might be pizza and wine. Or pizza and beer. Whatever your perfect pairing, you can get it at Paramount Studio Cocktails & Food attached to Minervas.

The flatbread pizzas are something of a well-kept secret. And they’re delicious. Our favorite is the Paramount, featuring sun-dried tomatoes, pesto sauce, portabella mushrooms, mozzarella, Parmesan, feta and basil.

Bonus: Happy hour runs from 3 to 6 p.m., including Saturday, and you’ll save $3 on flatbreads.

Double bonus: You can listen to live music while celebrating National Pizza Day. Short Notice performs at 8 p.m.

Foodie favorite

Ask any foodie in town for a favorite pizza recommendation, and we bet Grille 26 will be on the short list.

It’s hard to pick a go-to among brick oven-baked creations. From the classic Italian with pepperoni, Italian sausage and salami to the chicken Florentine featuring grilled chicken, applewood bacon, Roma tomatoes, spinach and artichoke, it could truly be Pizza Day any day here.

Pro tip: Eat it in the lounge, where pizza is half-price from 4 to 6 p.m. and 9 to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Flatbread with a flair

Is pizza in the Caribbean sounding good right about now? It happens every day at Turks & Caicos Cabana Grille, which offers an amazing deal on its flatbreads during happy hour.

It’s from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to close Monday through Saturday in the lounge.

There, you’ll find flatbreads made with a lavash cracker crust and a variety of toppings, from classics to delicious combinations such as mushroom truffle arugula and shrimp avocado jalapeno. Try a few! They’re $5 or $6 each!

That’s a value worth celebrating on National Pizza Day or any day.
