Never fear, for pizza is here!
It sounds like a lazy Thanksgiving meal, but this is a unique kind of pizza that is definitely worth consideration when it comes to planning your big dinner.
With food shortages still on the rise, it can be difficult to find all of your favorite Thanksgiving foods, including canned cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and of course, the turkey.
That’s why one local pizza place in Western New York has stepped up to the (pizza) pan to cover your plates this holiday.
Macy’s Place Pizzeria announced the big return of their iconic Thanksgiving Pizza this week, and I’ve never seen so many people excited to get a single slice of it.
The pizza made its grand debut on Wednesday, November 16, and people are saying it is bigger and better than before.
If you’ve never tried the Thanksgiving pizza from Macy’s Place before, you can expect to get a taste of every one of your favorite Thanksgiving foods, including: gravy, turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, and some cranberry drizzle.
Macy’s Place Pizzeria is located at 3348 Genesee Street, Cheektowaga, NY and they’re open Monday-Thursday 11:00 AM - 10:00 PM, Friday and Saturday 11:00 AM - 10:30 PM, and Sunday 12:00 PM - 9:00 PM.
If you choose to have a more traditional family meal, turkey prices will be up this year by an estimated 73 percent, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.
That’s why one grocery store in Western New York is marketing all of their Thanksgiving items at 2019 prices – that’s pre-inflation and pre-pandemic, so it’s going to be down quite a bit.
ALDI is calling it the “Thanksgiving Price Rewind,” including all of your holiday favorites, like sides, appetizers, desserts, and beverages. They will be discounted up to 30 percent, and ALDI will match its prices from 2019.
