National Pizza Day: What makes New York pizza the best

By Liz Muentes, Digital Producer

It's National Pizza Day on Feb. 9, as pizza lovers across the country grab their favorite slice in celebration.

To honor the day News 12 stopped by Sauce and Soda in Bushwick to find out how to make the perfect pie and find out why New York pizza is the best.

"The most important thing is the dough, that's the foundation of pizza that has to be done right," says Pizza Man Johnny Campagna.

Over 3 billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year, with an average of 23 pounds of pizza consumed by Americans per person each year.
