October 1 marks the beginning of National Pizza Month and Pizza Hut, a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc., is bringing pizza lovers a deal to help them celebrate all month long.

For the month of October, customers can order two medium pizzas—any recipe and any toppings—for just $6.99 each with the purchase of two or more. October also brings Halloween, which is one of Pizza Hut's three busiest days of the year.

“Pizza is often voted the most popular food in America, so it’s only right that we devote a full month to America’s favorite food,” says Doug Terfehr, senior director of public relations, Pizza Hut. “This October, we’re giving pizza lovers even more reason to commemorate National Pizza Month with our $6.99 Any Deal. With the unlimited topping combinations, you can honor National Pizza Month with a different flavor each day.”

There’s no doubt that pizza is one of America’s favorite foods. In fact, 94 percent of Americans eat it at least once a month. Other fun facts include:

  • Americans consume 100 acres of pizza per day, which is roughly 350 slices per second.
  • Each person in the U.S. eats 46 pizza slices a year on average.
  • Approximately 3 billion pizzas are ordered in the U. S. per year.
  • Pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping in America.
