SAVANNAH, Ga. (CNN) – There is still one kind of party you can throw while social distancing. Friday is National Pizza Party Day!

National Day Calendar says the origins of the day are unknown, but it falls on the third Friday in May every year.

Some forms of pizza have been around since ancient Greece. Italy cooked up the modern version as a cheesy flatbread, then it crossed the seas to Little Italy in New York in 1905.

Now, Americans eat about 3 billion pizzas every year!
