TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Hold on to your toppings because it’s National Cheese Pizza Day! 

In celebration of this glorious day, here are some fun facts about the classic dish. 

The modern pizza made its debut in Italy, where it was known as the Neapolitan Flatbread. 

Fittingly, the first United States pizza establishment opened up in New York’s Little Italy neighborhood back in 1905. 

Cheese pizza was originally just made with mozzarella cheese, but today places are piling on the shreds of many different kinds. 

Where is your favorite place to grab a slice in the Columbus area?
