Fort Worth is Texas’ No. 1 for — pizza? Here’s where to find National Pizza Day deals

National Pizza Day almost seems like every day in Fort Worth.

As it turns out, Fort Worth is ranked Texas’ No. 1 city for pizza.

In the same week as National Pizza Day Feb. 9, the Austin-based website Lawnstarter.com ranked Fort Worth best in Texas and No. 23 nationwide, mainly on the strength of top-ranked pizzerias such as Cane Rosso, Zoli’s, Slice City Pizza or north Fort Worth’s Pizza Buzz.

Most pizzerias were serving Pizza Day deals this week on Feb. 9. If you missed out, be ready for even more Fort Worth pizza in the coming year:
