Carpet Cleaner from 1001 is just the thing for National Pizza Day.

We love our carpets, but we also love pizza! And with National Pizza Day on 9th February, there’s never been a better excuse to roll up our sleeves and get stuck in with pizza making or simply celebrating that yummy carb by popping ready-made ones in the oven or ordering from our local takeaway.


Do you know your pizzas?

Think you know everything there is to know about pizza and National Pizza Day? Here are a few facts to help you brush up on your pizza knowledge:

  • Before World War II, pizza was little known outside of Italy or Italian immigrant communities
  • The modern birthplace of the pizza is southwestern Italy’s Campania region, home to Naples
  • The Margherita pizza is named after Queen Margherita who visited Naples in 1889
  • In 1943 Pizzeria Uno in Chicago invented the deep-dish pizza
  • The most popular pizza topping is of course cheese, and the least popular is pineapple – controversial!
  • 350 slices of pizza are sold in the U.S. every second – that’s a lot of pizza!
