I think it was sometime around 7 pm and none of us had eaten since lunch. Rick, especially, was starving, because to him, two 14-inch pizzas weren’t going to supply enough food for three people. I could see his mind flutter with mathematical calculations:
14 + 14 = 28
“You know what guys, if we’re ordering two 14-inch pizzas, we may as well order that 28-inch monster I saw on the menu.”
James started to protest and Rick cut him off, “Hey man, I really want to see the World’s Largest Delivered Pizza. Don’t you? We can get half of it Hawaiian and the other half Deluxe – everyone will get what they want. Plus, I’m buying.”
James shrugged because, sure that’s too much pizza, but if Rick’s buying, who am I to object?
I knew we were in trouble when the pizza box was too wide to fit through the front door. After some careful tilting James was able to get it inside, set it on the dining room table and exclaim, “Honey, get your camera!”
Below is an aerial shot of the pizza. Notice my dog lying on the floor next to the table. She weighs 45 pounds and the pizza is about as wide as she is long.
Though we ordered way too much, the pizza was fantastic. Pointer’s has great food and they always deliver within a decent amount of time. Typically their price is reasonable but the Pointersaurus was a tad expensive. I can’t help but feel slighted and a little disappointed that they didn’t offer us some sort of discount on the cost of toppings since it was a half-and-half.
Let’s do the math for this pizza:
35.11 base price
4.73 Green Pepper
That adds up to $68.22 before tax, the delivery charge and tip. And just in case your math is as bad as mine – the toppings cost $33.11.
I mean, I get it that Pointer’s wants to charge $4.73 for each topping, but they still managed to be especially skimpy with the mushrooms, onions and pepperoni. Those three toppings alone were $14.19 - I shouldn't have to scrounge around for (and never find) a piece of pizza with mushrooms AND onions AND pepperoni on it.
Seriously, if we’re paying almost five bucks for a topping and it’s only going on half the pizza, you should at least be generous with your portions.
