Why Thanksgiving Is One of the Busiest Times for Pizza Places

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that you just can’t think of with thinking about food. From perfectly carved turkeys to mounds of mashed potatoes and heaping helpings of thick gravy, Thanksgiving feasts are just the best. One thing you might not associate with the November holiday is pizza. You should, though. Why? Well, oddly enough, the day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest days of the year for pizza sales. In fact, only Super Bowl Sunday, New Year’s Eve and Halloween see more pies sold than Thanksgiving Eve.

With so much food available around Thanksgiving, why pizza you may ask. Well, simply put, pizza is fast, it’s convenient and most importantly it’s good!

Thanksgiving means a great family meal. Many people, however, just can’t face the prospects of having to cook the day before they have to prepare one of the most important meals of the entire year. With the prospect of so much time in the kitchen the following day, a quiet evening with a pizza sounds perfect.

According to the American Pizza Community (APC) pizza is a family’s top choice before busy holidays for a few crucial reasons:

  • It offers customizable and quality ingredients to satisfy every taste.
  • Pizza is a flexible option.
  • It’s a low-stress choice, meaning you don’t have to worry about much except enjoying a few slices.
  • It’s the perfect way to bring a family together.
  • Pizza is affordable

Chicago Style Pizza

So, pizza is one of the best foods to have on Thanksgiving Eve. The research above says so, right? If you want to bring the family together and enjoy a delicious pie, why not enjoy a Chicago thin crust pie – probably the tastiest of all the pizzas out there?


As we’ve already covered on our blog before, most people think deep dish when they think of Chicago style pizza. The fact is, however, that pub style pizza is the true Chicagoan’s choice when it comes to a mouth-watering pizza pie! Thin, super crispy, and cut into squares, Chicago thin style is the ultimate choice for sharing a pizza with loved ones come Thanksgiving Eve.
