Have you ever wondered how much pizza you should order, or how you’d get the best value for your money?

Did you know, for example, that a 14 inch pizza contains almost three times as much pizza as an 8 inch pizza? In this case, it’d be better for two people to order a ‘half and half’ 14 inch pizza, rather than an 8 inch pizza each – if the price was right of course.

Bigger is usually better. This is especially true when it comes to pizza.

WhatSizePizza was founded when I was hungry and friends were arguing about what size pizza to buy, and whether it was more cost effective to buy two eight inch pizzas or once twelve inch pizza. I pointed out that a 12 inch pizza was more than double the size of an eight inch pizza, and only cost 50% more.

So, I built a calculator to show the cost per square inch of pizzas, allowing people to make the most of their money. When I have time I may look to add more calculators on there, such as calorie per slice based on the UK’s most popular pizza delivery company – Dominos. I also plan for their to a pizza accessory store with pizza ovens, novelty pizza slicers and other pointless stuff.

The website was started for a bit of fun, and will continue to be that, but it won’t be a serious project. At least for now…
