It is National Pizza Day today, not to be confused with National Pizza Party Day (Third Friday of May), National Cheese Pizza Day (September 5), National Pepperoni Pizza Day (September 20), National Sausage Pizza Day (October 11), or National Pizza With Everything Except Anchovies (November 12).

I’m not making this stuff up. I couldn’t, nor would I. Who needs a day to celebrate on of the perfect foods?

Get ready for a winter filled with fun!

This is a page for Old Man Winter. Paging Old Man Winter.

If you’re like me, you love the change of seasons. This year it seems we’ve been stuck in fall mode in Lehigh Valley … until now that is! The temps have finally dropped to where there is a chance for the natural stuff to fall from the sky, even though that still hasn’t happened yet besides the few flurries I am staring at out my window at the present time. Luckily, for those of us that are winter enthusiasts, we’ve got two great resorts who have the capabilities to make a ton of the white stuff without the Snow God coming into play.

The Brick’s menu is expansive

I would live off pizza and Italian food if I could, and I’m not joking. Luckily for me, the Lehigh Valley has plenty of top-notch Italian restaurants and pizzerias that make me feel like I’m eating handmade pasta in Naples.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants is The Brick in Bethlehem, Pa. The family-run restaurant specializes in thin-crust wood-fired pizzas, leaving the crust with a wonderful charred finish. The Brick now serves brunch, adding unique Italian twists on typical brunch dishes. There’s nothing like it in the Valley.

Mouth Watering Old Forge Style

Over the last couple of years leading into the Lenten season, I’ve written a few blogs on pizza (okay four to be exact, but who’s counting). These blogs have named my “Top 10,” some local legendary pizza places, and even a few obscure ones. Regardless of what my lists entailed, they always opened up a can of worms and some great social media debate.

Once even some great banter where a woman told me I was crazy as Domino’s had the best pizza in Lehigh Valley. Nothing against the Domino’s franchise, but come on, really?

Fratzola's Pizzeria

With lent kicking off this past Friday, the time has come to strike up the conversation that people seem to get so passionate about. Who has the best pizza in Lehigh Valley? Well folks I’m here to tell you.

What makes me an expert you may ask? Being a native of the Scranton area (Blakely exactly) I have had the privilege of some of the greatest pizza in the world.  For anyone who disagrees, even the nationally known Parade Magazine did a feature on the best pizza being found in Old Forge, Pa last year.
