Picking The Perfect Pizza for a Large Group

When you’re hosting a large group, the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the kitchen cooking. Picking up pizza is a great way to feed a crowd without all the hassle. But with so many choices, how do you know which pizza is the best for your group?

Let’s face it, choosing the perfect pizza for a large group can be a daunting task. There are so many factors to consider! How many people are in the group? What are their pizza preferences? What is the budget? How far in advance will you need to place your order? Will you be pickup up or having your order delivered?

Ugggh so many things to decide.

No need to panic! At Fairway Pizza & Sports Page Pub, we know everything there is to know about ordering pizza for a large group. In this blog post, we’ll explore some tips for choosing the perfect pizza for your next large group event.

Things to Consider When Ordering Pizza for a Large Group

Here are a few things to consider when choosing a pizza for a large group:

How many people are in the group?

Obviously, more guests will require more food. But, it’s also important to consider who your guests are. Is it a birthday party for kids where there will be more children in the group than adults? If so, you most likely won’t need as many pies as you would if you had a large group made up mostly of adults.

What are your guests pizza preferences?

It can be difficult trying to guess what toppings your guests enjoy and which ones they don’t care for at all. If you’re not in a position to ask your guests what they prefer, we suggest selecting pies that have common toppings.

Here are a few of the most popular pizza types:

Popular Pies

  • Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Meat Lovers

What size pizza will you need?

A large pizza is typically 16 inches in diameter, while an extra-large pizza is 18 inches. If you have a large group, you’ll want to order large pies. Small and medium-sized pies are great for satisfying custom requests

For example, there’s a good chance that a few guests might enjoy a fresh baed pie topped with shrimp and pineapple. With only a few people interested in a pie containing those ingredients, a large pie might be too much.

What is your food budget?

Price can vary greatly between pizza places. Especially when selecting specialty pizzas. For those reasons, we suggest setting an estimated budget before deciding which pies and toppings to order.

Dine-in, Take out, or Delivery?

Depending on the size of your group, you may not want the hassle of trying to guess what pizzas and toppings your guests might be interested in.

You also may not want to deal with picking up the order or cleaning up after your group is done eating. If you’re already unsure if you want to deal with those things, it might be a good idea to host your event at the restaurant you’d like to order your food from. No cleanup!

Ok, let’s get back to business.

If you don’t mind cleaning up after your party, all you need to decide on is which restaurant you want to order from. Once you select a place, it’s time to decide if you want to pick your order up or have it delivered.

If you have a large order consisting of many pizzas, we suggest having your order delivered. Delivery drivers are usually equipped with heat retaining bags that are designed to keep your pizzas hot. A professional delivery driver will also keep your pies from sliding around inside the box. No one likes all of the cheese on once half of the pie! 😬


Another great idea when trying to figure out how many pizzas you’ll need for your gathering is to call the restaurant that you intend to order from in advance. With a little information about the size of your party, an experienced pizza restaurant will be able to estimate how many pies you’ll need.
