National Pizza with the Works Day: A History

National Pizza with the Works Day is one of our favorites here at Hungry Howie's®, and people often ask us how this awesome holiday came to be. It's said that only 50 out of every 18,000 pizza orders include a request for anchovies. And yet, many people get an unpleasant surprise when they ask for a pizza pie "with the works" and it arrives with the pungent fish added on as a topping. But to pizzerias across the country, the works does include anchovies.

That's why this particular day, National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day, was created. It's specifically for those who want to celebrate the beauty of lavish, and many, pizza toppings, but just don't care for anchovies. And that's okay. In fact, anchovies are one of the most unpopular pizza toppings in the entire country. However, it's believed that the tradition of putting anchovies on top of pies dates back to ancient Roman times when fish on bread was a common dish.
