Takeout pizza is a great (and delicious) treat, but there are some things you should keep in mind before placing your Palm Harbor takeout order. Today we want to talk a little bit about some of those things and why they’re important!
Takeout Pizza: 4 Things to Keep in Mind Before You Order!
1. Time Your Order Well!
One of the most important things to remember when you order takeout pizza anywhere is to time your order as well as possible. So, for example, if you are heading home from work and know that you usually hit traffic that delays you getting home by 30 minutes, then keep that in mind if you’re ordering your takeout pizza to pick up on your way home. Of course, you can’t anticipate every traffic jam but always plan for the delays you experience regularly. By planning like this you can be sure that you’re takeout pizza is hot and fresh when you pick it up and perfectly delicious when you get home.
2. Know Your Toppings
There are some pizza toppings that just don’t travel very well. Keep this in mind when you’re ordering your takeout order. Toppings that don’t travel well tend to be those that have high levels of moisture in them, for example, pineapple. The reason that these toppings don’t travel well is that there is a longer period between taking the pizza out of the oven and eating it. This gives the moisture-rich toppings a longer time to dampen the crust of your pizza and make it floppy and soggy when it comes time for dinner!
3. Know Your Takeout Restaurant!
Here at Fairway Pizza, we have plenty of regulars who know us by name and we know them by name too! When we have regulars show up, we know their order and we know their likes and dislikes and this doesn’t just make preparing their order easier, it makes everything much more like family! If you have a pizza restaurant that you frequent often, make the effort to get to know the people who make your food and serve you, it will make ordering your “usual” over the phone for takeout much easier, faster and much more pleasant too!
4. Communicate with the Restaurant
It’s always best to be as clear as possible when you place your takeout order. Be very clear about what you want on your pizza and ask the person answering the phone to repeat your order to be sure that it’s right. This stops mistakes and wasted food and it means that you don’t have to wait for your order to be remade in the event that there was a miscommunication.
It’s also important to communicate with the restaurant if someone else is going to be picking up your order. Not all restaurants are as careful about pickups for takeout, but some are, so if you have someone else picking up your order, let the restaurant know their name. It’s also equally important that the person picking up your order has your order number or receipt on them so that pickup is easy and fast and your pizza gets home while it’s still hot and delicious.
