Where is the best pizza for National Pizza with the Works (except anchovies) Day?

I take no joy in writing this, but today is National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day.

Designed — we know not by whom — as a day to encourage the ordering of “everything (but anchovies)” pizzas, National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day unfairly singles out the salty fish that many of us — OK, maybe just a few of us — regard as the ultimate pizza topping.

In a popularity contest, anchovies are well-eclipsed by pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, spinach, bacon and even pineapple. That’s according to an analysis of pizza orders from thousands of U.S. restaurants by food-delivery provider Foodler.

But for those of us who cringe at the sight of a slice wilting under the weight of too many toppings, there’s nothing better than a medium cheese pizza from, say, Palm Beach Gardens’ Buongiorno Pizza, dressed at home with anchovies straight from the tin, their oil then drizzled atop the pie.

I’ve got your back, anchovies, even if this dubious national food day doesn’t.
