ONTARIO, OH - Happy National Pizza Day!

February 9th has been proclaimed as National Pizza Day, and although the origin of the holiday is unknown, what better excuse do you need to visit your local pizza place for a slice?

WMFD stopped by Warrior Pizza and Ice Cream, located at 3393 Park Avenue West, to talk with owner Ron Erich about what makes Warrior's pizza so unique.

Ron says their original goal when they bought Warrior in 2007 was to build a pizza sauce that was similar to the kind his wife was accustomed to eating over in Sicily, where she grew up.

At Warrior, you'll find your basic medium and thin crust pizzas, but there's also a selection of Specialty, Gourmet, and "Award Winning" pies as well.

The Lasagna Pizza is one of Warrior's best-sellers according to Ron and won 1st Place in the United States at an International Pizza Competition in Columbus. 

Whether you consider it a "real" holiday or not, today may just be the perfect opportunity for a surprise pizza party, or even just to support a local business by stopping by for a slice!
