With the big meal Thursday - many families weren't in the mood for cooking Wednesday night...which makes this the biggest night of the year for pizza makers.
At Gen City Pizzeria, manager Jeff Laaker says they see a 50-percent increase in delivery and carry-out pizzas.
He says they're always fully staffed on the night before Thanksgiving to keep up with the orders, and the big crowds coming in the door. "A lot of people come into town for the holidays, and they haven't been there in a while, it's just special to them mostly," he said.
Laaker says the biggest seller of Thanksgiving Eve is Gem City's Jeff's Special pizza.
