How many pizzas should you order for your party, special occasion or large group? The general rule for large pizza orders is that you need two-and-one-half (2-1/2) slices per adult to be safe. Typically, a large pizza has 8 slices. To calculate the number of pizzas you need, take the number of adults, multiply by 2-1/2, and then divide by 8.
For example, if you have a party with 25 adults, here is the pizza math: 25 X 2.5 = 62.5; 62.5/8 = 7.8 (or 8 pizzas).
You should usually round up as it is better to have more pizza than not enough to serve your guests. Also, for kids or children, you can adjust the 2.5 general rule to 1.5 slices of pizza per child.
For example, if you have a party with 8 adults and 10 kids attending, here is the pizza math: 8 X 2.5 = 20; 10 X 1.5 = 15; 20 + 15 = 35; 35/8 = 4.375 (or 4 to 5 pizzas).
Also, if you have a large number of smaller kids at your party, you may be able to order less pizzas if your pizza place has the option to have the pizza slices double cut. Also, be sure to order some variety. If you have a large number of children attending the pizza party, use a basic cheese pizza as your main staple. If you have adults attending, you may want to order 1 veggie pizza to make sure you have enough variety. Keep it simple with cheese, pepperoni, etc. Don’t overload on the beef or hamburger, or other exotic-style pizzas.
