    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.

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

    Hahaha

    My point still stands. We did homemade pizzas for our party a year or two ago. And my lady's lady friends were impressed

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

    Only if I am trying to impress the hostess...but she asked me to arrange it, so I don't think I need to impress her.

    Look at it this way: if you do a bang-up job of arranging it, she'll ask you to do it in the future. I advise doing it just well enough that you get fed, but not good enough that she asks you to do it again in the future.

    Honestly the worst thing would be if I did the take and bake and then ended up throwing up due to smell. Sometimes being pregnant is not fun.
