World Pizza Day is celebrated annually on February 9, which means today is the perfect day to order in your favourite pie.
To mark the occasion, a number of venues in the UAE have launched deals. Here are some ways to celebrate the dish in all its cheesy, thin-or-thick-crusted glory, without even having to leave the house.
The restaurant, famous for its thin, crispy and light wood-fired pizzas has a deal worth your dirhams. Those ordering directly from the website, will get a diavola pepperoni pizza or a Margherita pizza for Dh9, along with a regular pizza order. Customers will also get an additional 20 per cent off their first order from the website.
