Those of us who buy pizza from Dominos on a regular basis understand the difficulty of determining which pizza size to purchase. Do we listen to our bellies and get a small pizza, or do we spend a few bucks on a larger pie? How can we even know which size provides the most value for money and whether to get a small or larger Dominos Pizza?

Spending the additional money for a medium Dominos pizza gets you far more than ordering a small one. This is due to the fact that the surface area of each circle grows dramatically as the diameter, or pizza size, increases.

We appreciate that’s a lot to comprehend in one sitting, so let’s look at how we can stretch your money the farthest and guarantee you receive the most pizza possible.

## Are Two Small Domino’s Pizzas Bigger Than One Medium?

As previously stated, assessing the surface area of a pizza is the best technique to calculate its worth. After all, the surface area determines how much cheesy, saucy deliciousness we can consume and how many toppings we can pile on top.

To do so, we must use an old standby from geometry class: A = r2, often known as the formula for the area of a circle. Simply take half of the pizza’s diameter as the radius, multiply it by itself, and then multiply it by 3.14 (the approximate, simplified value of pi).

After that, you’ll have the surface area of your pizza. The surface area will be in square inches since Dominos pizzas are measured in inches. The following are the dimensions for a small and medium-sized pizza:

- A = (5)2 = 78.5 square inches for a small pizza with a diameter of 10 inches.
- A = (6)2 = 113.04 square inches for a medium pizza with a diameter of 12 inches.

Based on those calculations, a medium pizza has much larger surface area than a small pizza.

Furthermore, the price difference between the two sizes is merely $2.

However, if you have more people to feed, ordering two small pizzas instead of one medium is the better option. Two small pizzas have a total surface area of 157 square inches vs 113 for a medium, which is 44 square inches more wonderful pizza for someone else to enjoy.

## How Many Slices Are in Domino’s Medium Pizza?

Using the same Cal-o-meter settings as before, but this time setting the size to medium 12-inch, we obtain a serving size of one slice or half a pizza. In other words, a medium pizza from Domino’s contains eight pieces in total.

## How Many Slices Are in Domino’s Small Pizza?

Though it is not specifically mentioned on the Dominos website, their calorie counter will give you an idea of how many slices are on each pizza. Set their Cal-o-meter to a hand-tossed, small 10-inch pizza, for example, and it will inform you that the serving size is two slices or of a pizza.

In other words, a small 10-inch Dominos pizza has six pieces.

## What Are the Sizes of Domino’s Pizzas?

Here are all the various Dominos pizza sizes and their relative surface areas to help you decide which pizza sizes best fit your budget and eating habits:

- 10 inch or 78.5 square inch small pizza with six pieces
- 12 inch (113.04 square inch) medium pizza with eight pieces
- 14-inch (153.86-square-inch) large pizza with eight pieces
- 16-inch (200.96-square-inch) extra-large pizza with eight pieces

Although the Dominos Cal-o-meter indicates an individual pizza size of 8 inches, your local Dominos may not carry this size. If they do, the surface area of a single pizza is 50.24 square inches, with four slices.

## Should You Order Two Medium Pizzas or 1 Large Pizza?

You may answer this question in a variety of ways, depending on your circumstances. Let’s take a look at each one.

### You Want Variety for Yourself and a Few Others

Dominos is often running promotions for ordering many pizzas at a reduced price, making it an appealing alternative for diversity. Ordering two medium pizzas allows you (and a companion or two) to taste two distinct varieties rather than just one.

Although you may personalize each side of a single pizza, purchasing one big pizza instead of two mediums works best if you and your visitor plan to consume no more than one or two pieces apiece.

### You and Your Guests Are Hungry

If variety isn’t a problem and your sole aim is to feed hungry bellies, two medium pizzas are preferable than one big pizza. Even if we disregard the surface size for a moment, two medium pizzas yield 226 square inches altogether compared. 153 square inches for one giant pizza.

### You’re Ordering for Yourself

If you’re the only one eating pizza and don’t have the stomach for numerous pieces, one huge pizza is typically a better option. You’ll have less leftovers to deal with, and you can always personalize your pizza by putting different toppings on each side. It is also less expensive to get one for yourself rather than two.

## How Many Domino’s Pizzas to Order?

Are you ready to host people at your home but unsure how many Dominos pizzas to order? Don’t worry, we’ve got a useful table to assist you decide. Remember that these figures are based on the suggested serving size of Domino’s: 2 slices for a small pizza, 1 slice for a medium, large, or extra large pizza.

Number of people | Small (10-inch, 6 slices) | Medium (12-inch, 8 slices) | Large (14-inch, 8 slices) | Extra Large (16-inch, 8 slices) |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

2 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

4 | 2 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

5 | 2 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

15 | 5 | 2 | 2 | 2 |

20 | 7 | 3 | 3 | 3 |

30 | 10 | 4 | 4 | 4 |

40 | 14 | 5 | 5 | 5 |

50 | 17 | 7 | 7 | 7 |

The figures above, however, do not adequately reflect the whole surface area of the pizza you are receiving, and all you get is a hazy impression of how many pizzas to purchase. For example, would seven extra large pizzas enough for 50 people?

Instead, based on those figures, let’s calculate the total surface area of each pizza size.

Number of people | Small (10-inch, 78.5 sq. in) | Medium (12-inch, 113.04 sq.in) | Large (14-inch, 153.86 sq.in) | Extra Large (16-inch, 200.96 sq.in) |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | 1 pizza, 78.5 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 113.04 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 153.86 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 113.04 sq. in. total) |

2 | 1 pizza, 78.5 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 113.04 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 153.86 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 200.96 sq. in. total) |

4 | 2 pizza, 157 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 113.04 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 153.86 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 200.96 sq. in. total) |

5 | 2 pizza, 157 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 113.04 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 153.86 sq. in. total) | 1 pizza, 200.96 sq. in. total) |

15 | 5 pizza, 392.5 sq. in. total) | 2 pizza, 226.08 sq. in. total) | 2 pizza, 307.72 sq. in. total) | 2 pizza, 401.92 sq. in. total) |

20 | 7 pizza, 549.5 sq. in. total) | 3 pizza, 339.12 sq. in. total) | 3 pizza, 461.58 sq. in. total) | 3 pizza, 602.88 sq. in. total) |

30 | 10 pizza, 785 sq. in. total) | 4 pizza, 452.16 sq. in. total) | 4 pizza, 615.44 sq. in. total) | 4 pizza, 803.84 sq. in. total) |

40 | 14 pizza, 1099 sq. in. total) | 5 pizza, 565.2 sq. in. total) | 5 pizza, 769.3 sq. in. total) | 5 pizza, 1004.8 sq. in. total) |

50 | 17 pizza, 1334.5 sq. in. total) | 7 pizza, 791.28 sq. in. total) | 7 pizza, 1077.02 sq. in. total) | 7 pizza, 1406.72 sq. in. total) |

The data has changed dramatically now that we can view the complete surface area. Aside from preferences and diversity, one extra large pizza may feed up to five people, while 14 tiny pizzas serve 40 people better than five extra large pizzas. However, the difference for 30 individuals is determined by whether you like more variety or bigger slices.

Again, these figures are based on Domino’s suggested serving sizes and do not include second helpings.

But what about the price? We can check at it as well:

Number of people | Small (10-inch, 78.5 sq. in) | Medium (12-inch, 113.04 sq.in) | Large (14-inch, 153.86 sq.in) | Extra Large (16-inch, 200.96 sq.in) |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | 1 pizza, 78.5 sq. in. total), $12.99 | 1 pizza, 113.04 sq. in. total), $14.99 | 1 pizza, 153.86 sq. in. total), $17.99 | 1 pizza, 200.96 sq. in. total), $18.99 |

15 | 5 pizza, 392.5 sq. in. total), $64.95 | 2 pizza, 226.08 sq. in. total), $29.98 | 2 pizza, 307.72 sq. in. total), $35.98 | 2 pizza, 401.92 sq. in. total), $37.98 |

20 | 7 pizza, 549.5 sq. in. total), $90.93 | 3 pizza, 339.12 sq. in. total), $44.97 | 3 pizza, 461.58 sq. in. total), $53.97 | 3 pizza, 602.88 sq. in. total), $56.97 |

40 | 14 pizza, 1099 sq. in. total), $181.86 | 5 pizza, 565.2 sq. in. total), $74.95 | 5 pizza, 769.3 sq. in. total), $89.95 | 5 pizza, 1004.8 sq. in. total), $94.95 |

50 | 17 pizza, 1334.5 sq. in. total), $220.83 | 7 pizza, 791.28 sq. in. total), $104.93 | 7 pizza, 1077.02 sq. in. total), $125.93 | 7 pizza, 1406.72 sq. in. total), $132.93 |

Again, the disparity in overall surface area and expenses will cause you to rethink. Is it worth paying roughly $100 more to provide 50 people with more variety and slices from 17 pizzas, or should you save money by serving them seven pizzas?

## What Domino’s Pizzas Are the Most Popular?

With so many specialty pizzas available, it may be difficult to choose the finest one, and it becomes much more difficult when you have guests to serve. If making your own pizza isn’t an option, consider one of these most popular speciality Dominos pizzas:

- Pizza with the Most Pepperoni Try it if normal pepperoni pizza isn’t cutting it. On the same slice, you’ll find two layers of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.
- Pizza Wisconsin 6 Cheese Cheese on bread sounds delectable, but how about six different types of cheese on the same loaf? Every slice of this pizza has feta, provolone, cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, and asiago.
- Pizza MeatZZa If you want a lot of meat and cheese, this is your best bet. Between two layers of mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage, ham, and beef are snuggled.
- Pizza ExtravaganZZa Four different types of meat are layered between two layers of mozzarella cheese on this appropriately called pizza. In this very spectacular pie, you’ll find pepperoni, ham, Italian sausage, beef, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, and black olives.
- Pacific Veggie Pizza Ideal for individuals who like their pizza without meat. It’s a cheesy, meat-free option that’s packed with roasted red peppers, baby spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and olives.

## Can You Change the Ingredients on Domino’s Pizzas?

If you order a specialty Dominos pizza, you may still adjust the ingredients. If you wish to order their Philly Cheese Steak pizza, for example, you may add black olives and chopped tomatoes. You may also adjust if you want little to no mushrooms.

Because the choice may not be obvious right away, make sure you click Customize after picking your pizza. Don’t worry if you mistakenly click Add to Order without adding your modifications. You may still change the pizza in your basket by clicking on it and selecting Edit.
