It's a 'Dot-Pizza' Buffet (You're Welcome)

By Emily Smith and Gary Hotze

What we're grateful for: a holiday that celebrates a beautiful combination of warm dough, savory sauce, gooey cheese and tasty toppings galore. In other words, pizza!

In honor of National Pizza Day (Feb. 9) -- a food we think should be honored for at least an entire month -- we are serving up our favorite fresh-out-of-the-oven 'dot-pizza' (.pizza) websites.

Yep, 'dot-pizza' is a thing. It's one of hundreds of new domain extensions available to help create a website URL that is creative, meaningful and memorable.

These sites below certainly get pepperoni points for being memorable. But if you think that 'dot-pizza' is a domain extension just applicable to pizza restaurants, think again. You needn't be a pizza restaurant to seize a 'dot-pizza' domain name -- as a handful of these websites below illustrate.
