Sometimes it gets difficult to choose the right pizza or to order the one that perfectly suits your palate. If you also happen to struggle with the same problem, fret not, we’re here to help. Here’s an ultimate guide on how to order a pizza like a pro:
This is one of the easiest methods to order a pizza. A pizza can be ordered online through the pizza outlet’s official websites or via other food ordering apps.
STEP 1: Decide On A Pizza Outlet
The first and foremost thing to do before ordering pizza is to decide on a pizza place to order your meal from. It will depend on the distance from your house where these pizza places are located. You can check on food ordering apps to see the range in which your order can be placed from a specific outlet/restaurant.
STEP 2: Go Through The Menu
The next step is to check the menu of the selected pizza place. This will give you an idea of all the varieties of pizzas available at the place. The next step will help you on deciding the perfect pizza for you.
STEP 3: Choosing The Pizza
To choose the right pizza, you will have to focus on the parameters below.
Size- Small, Medium, Large
The size of the pizza will depend upon the number of people having it. Generally, a regular or small-sized pizza will have 4 slices, medium-sized pizza will have 6 slices and large-sized pizza will have 8 slices in total. So, choose according to what suits your hunger needs and portion sizes of different pizza outlets.
Crust- Thin Crust, Cheese Burst, Stuffed
Crust can greatly determine the taste of your pizza. You can choose either the thin crust- the simplest version or make upgrades like stuffed crust or cheese burst, which makes the pizza very filling. The cheese burst is generally the most preferred variety of crust by cheese lovers because it adds an extra creaminess to the pizza.
Toppings- Vegetables and Proteins
Various pizza outlets usually have a set amount of vegetable and meat toppings. Additional changes can be made on request to add or eliminate certain vegetables or meat items according to one’s dietary restrictions. The toppings mainly include tomato, onions, mushrooms, corns, olives, bell peppers, jalapenos etc. Protein would include meat items like chicken tikka, chicken meatballs, chicken sausages etc.
Sauces- Peri Peri, Pesto, Hot sauce etc.
Similarly, sauces will also be based on the type of pizza ordered. Your decision to order a particular pizza can either be based on the toppings or on the type of sauce it contains. Most pizza outlets will not have the option to select your own choice of sauces.
Cheese- Shredded, Mozzarella, Gouda
The default cheese variety for pizzas is generally mozzarella and shredded cheese. However, this only applies for add-on cheese as most outlets will not give you the option of choosing your own choice of cheese.
STEP 4: Placing The Order
When you are ordering online, you just have to select the type of pizza (variety, crust and size) and add-ons (veg, meat and cheese). You can also order side dishes with the pizza such as garlic bread, pasta or chocolate cake for dessert. Add your address, phone number and any instruction that want to give to the delivery person.
STEP 5: Making Payment
You can make the payment via cards, cash or e-wallets. Cash is paid after the pizza is delivered to your address. Extra money is charged for taxes and delivery, which is not mentioned in the menu prices. So, look out for those expenses as well before ordering.
The calling method is a more traditional method for ordering pizza. It is useful for people who are less proficient in availing online services. It will require you to call the pizza outlet and place your order on the phone. You can write down your order on paper before calling to make the process easier. While deciding on your order, the above mentioned methods need to be kept in mind.
So, pick up your devices and go get some pizza. Happy Ordering!
