From a press release:

Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza will celebrate National Pizza Month throughout October long with “31 Days of Pizza.” Each day of October, Pete’s will offer $2 slice specials on a different “pizza of the day” ranging from its popular and eponymous clam-topped New Haven pie to the Metro-North topped with slow roasted pork and housemade pancetta. With more than 20 different specialty pizzas and countless customizable topping options, guests can explore and expand their pizza horizons.
National Pizza Month was created in 1984 by the founder of Pizza Today Magazine to honor all-things-pizza, and Pete’s New Haven is excited to celebrate this delicious holiday and educate diners on what New Haven-style apizza (pronounced “a-BEETS”) really is.
