While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

November 12 is National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day, so we at Eatocracy fully expect you to go a little bonkers with your coups de grâce.

Pineapple and sausage? Sure. Hot dogs and eggs? Of course. French fries and pickles? When in Rome. It’s your day to have a venerable smörgåsbord in pie form.

Except for anchovies, ‘cause apparently that's not allowed.

What's on TV?

“Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn” – Hallmark Channel, 11 a.m. ET
Lucinda Scala Quinn shows how to make homemade pizza dough, marguerite and escarole pizzas and fried Pizza Frizza. A perfect fit for today's food holiday.
