    Typically a Large has 8 slices and an ExLarge as 12.

    Depending on the individuals eating, you can probably get 4 ExLarge. Get popular toppings (cheese, pepperoni, combo) but also get one veggie in case there are any vegetarians in the group. If you know ahead of time, it helps.

    If you get large pizzas then most men will eat about 1/4 of one. Women a little less than that. So if its 10 men and 10 women then if you get 5 you should OK. But if it was me I would get 6 because somethings you get hungry people. Have at least on be vegetarian. The rest mixed.

    2-3 pcs per person. so if one pizza has 8, than you need like 5, but id get an extra one just in case. so 6 pizzas.

    go with pepperoni and hawaiian.

    well it depends on how many slices each person will eat,

    say they all eat 3 slices, that's 3 x 20 = 60 slices

    so you should buy 6 10 slice pizzas or the equivalent of.

    as for toppings i'd get 2 of just margaretta, maybe 2 of peperoni and 2 on ham and pineapple!

    hope this helps :)

    It depends on if it's all or mostly guys because they eat more. I eat like a guy and me and my boyfriend can eat a large. I would order 8 large.

    Italian Sausage


    Canadian Bacon

    Bell Pepper


    Black Olives

    Banana Peppers






    Extra Cheese

    Typically there's 8 slices per pizza...(I own a Pizzeria) Also I'd recommend no less than a 16" pizza. You need to decide how many slices per person are they gonna eat? If you think 2 slices per person is enough that's 40 slices total then just do the math...That's 5 pies at 8 slices per pie...

    I always tell my customer to get 2 plain cheese, one pepperoni, or two, maybe a veggie like mushroom, and then maybe a carnivore or house fave...
