Delivery pizza on game night
Last night my family wanted pizza delivered while the game was going on. A friend had told me that he had gotten a good pizza delivered from Joe Squared, which I'd never tried, so Gailor put the game on pause and gave them a call.
First of all, she was stumped by the pricing: $10 for a 10-inch, $12 for a 12-inch, $15 for a 14-inch and $18 for a 16-inch.
I'm sure there's some rationale behind it, but I kind of agreed with her. Doesn't the large economy size usually cost less per unit? Or is it one of those math things involving numbers squared again? ...
Then when she called and ordered a 14-inch cheese with eggplant, bell peppers and tomatoes and a green salad, she was told the total would be something like $32. Whoa. It turned out when the person who answered put her order into the computer, each vegetable rang up as $2.50 extra.
I pointed out that on the Web site, each veggie for the 14-inch was $2 extra. Meanwhile my husband was in the background gnashing his teeth because the game was on pause and the minutes were ticking away. My daughter was getting antsy, too, and told them just to make it a plain cheese pizza and salad. The total then came to $22.70.
It arrived just when the person had told us it would: one hour later. (Well, it was during the game.) I like that. And I loved the pizza itself: thin, charred crust, not too heavy topping. Of course, it suffered from delivery, but nothing getting stuck in the oven at 300 degrees wouldn't fix. However, I can see this is definitely not a pizza for everyone.
Sorry about the ugly photo. My family attacked the pizza before I could get my camera.
