Miro's Comments: what very little there was, was very little
Elizabeth's Comments: very very peppery, like black pepper, not veggie peppers. Can see pepper spots everywhere. It really overpowers the taste, at least that's what I think those spots are…

Overall Comments
Miro's Comments: add 2 inches to the diameter and I'll be a repeat customer
Elizabeth's Comments: small, not that great tasting, not the worst pizza, but the worst value yet, especially with the delivery fee (+$1.50)

  1. How do you get the size? Is that the manufacturer's reported size, or is the real size as presented to the user? I've always been skeptical about reported sizing of pizza.

  2. We actually pull out a tape measure on each pie in order to deal with exactly that issue. Our experience is that a 16" pizza is a standard large size, but plenty of places pass off a 14" as their large.
