How much do Americans love pizza? The Washington Post reported in 2015 that 350 slices of pizza are sold every second in the U.S., and that Americans eat 3 billion pizzas every year.

So it makes sense that America would have a National Pizza Day.

The cheesy holiday will be observed Saturday, and several pizza chains are offering deals to mark the day. There are also at least two National Pizza Day contests for which the prize is free food for a year.

Red Baron is giving away free pizza for a year to one lucky fan on Facebook.

"Simply post a photo on your page alongside a thank you note to pizza for saving parents like you from dinnertime chaos," the frozen pizza retailer wrote on its Facebook Page. "Posts must tag @RedBaronPizza and use the hashtag #ThankYouPizza to qualify. Entry period ends at midnight on 2/9." 

Topper's Pizza, meanwhile, will give one customer free food for a year in honor of National Pizza Day.   Customers who buy a "Pick Any 2 or More" deal through Saturday are automatically  entered. The deal includes any house or three-topping pizza or Topperstix for $9.99 each.

Even if you don't win, there are still lots of ways to save money on food on Saturday. Here's a list of pizza deals and National Pizza Day-themed promotions for 2019:
