It seems like these days. every day is a “National Day” of something. February 3rd was ‘National Carrot Cake Day’…and we just ask, why? February 4th was ‘National Hemp Day’. Today, however, February the 9th is the holiest of food days.
It is National Pizza Day!
And when it comes to reviewing pizza, Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy is the current King. He reviews his slices with the catchphrase “One Bite. Everyone Knows The Rules.” It’s a pretty simple concept, and it has taken the internet by storm. Long story short, Portnoy ate a slice of pizza daily for over two years. He told Men’s Journal:
Before, I’d order a pizza for dinner and eat the whole thing. Now I eat a slice and get it out of the way. It’s made me eat less.
It started as a contest between friends and turned into a full-blown viral internet sensation. Portnoy has been here to Buffalo to review its unique style of pizza, and he has made it clear that he is not a fan of Buffalo Style Pizza. As a known Patriots sympathizer, he also isn’t a fan of our football team, The Buffalo Bills, but that’s a story for another day.
Back to the Pizza. Portnoy came to Buffalo back in 2019, and he visited La Nova on Ferry Street. Here’s his review:
He wholeheartedly disagreed with the claim on their box that they were “The #1 Pizzeria in The United States”.
He may not have been a fan of La Nova, but there are a few other places around WNY, that we think he needs to try.
Multiple locations in Western New York.
