Dean Martin was onto something when he said the thing about a big pizza pie being amore (that’s what the song is about, right?). And what better way to celebrate such an enthralling love story than exploring this year’s Lexington Pizza Week.

From Monday, Feb. 19 through Sunday, Feb. 25, 13 Lexington restaurants will serve up veggie + meat options for $10 each — 10-inch pies or 2XL slices. So, without further ado, let’s take a bite out of the pizzas.
