    Ordering Pizza and the Super Bowl

    I know there are so many other options, but I was asked to help plan for an event at someones home and they want pizza.

    I'd like good suggestions for how to get around the fact that most people will be ordering pizza. Do I order it ahead, like this weekend? Get the fresh pizza and bake it there? What are your solutions and options?

    I'm not sure on the types of pizza yet. At least one cheese and maybe on veggie.

    Take & Bake is a good call.

    I know if you order online from Pizza Hut you can specify if it is for a future time and date.

    I don't like Papa Murphys in general, but if you are gonna go the pizza route, I'd probably do that. Or make your own. Especially if you're trying to impress a lady

    I'd be fairly surprised if revkah is trying to impress a lady.

    Keep this idea on the back burner... could pay dividends for you.

    Re: Ordering Pizza and the Super Bowl

    If you are ordering over 5 pizzas, call the day before and tell them the time you will be picking them up. If you are ordering less, call a couple of hours before picking them up.

    Re: Ordering Pizza and the Super Bowl

    I see you're in Ames but a sneaky play would be to grab pizza from somewhere that isn't a pizza place. For example in Des Moines Centro would be a good place to get some pizza on Super Bowl Sunday and they probably have cheese/veggie options that are different than your everyday cheese/veggie options.


    Rhoads out!

    I don't want new friends, shag carpet, or weirdo lighting.

    Unless there has been a drastic change in something, I doubt that's the case.

    How many people ? Will there be any children ?
    Why not just make your own? Make dough ahead of time and get different topping choices and then let people make their own.
