# Pizza prices

I think we are saying the same things in different ways.
Bottom line , you have a vision stick to it, learn to ignore noise around you. Stick to quality and fair pricing based on your own numbers and not based on what everyone is charging around you. I always say it is like playing a game of golf, you are not really playing against anybody you are playing your own game in another words who care what everyone is doing what around you, paying attention to them is distraction…My two cents

You can also simply disable both the comments and the reviews section.

For those who are interested - I put some of the comments from this thread into a web article on PMQ. There are a couple comments at the bottom of the article. They feel for ya @npizza !

Indeed! I hadn’t seen that. :rolleyes: I’ll be curious to know the results of your pizza poll. I was thinking about making a graph, but the fact that some people have 16" larges is kind of throwing me off!

I’d say a chart that isn’t labeled large and small but simply shows the price by diameter.

If you want to get technical we could get the average price per square inch.

My 14" -
\$11.99 ÷ 154 square inches =
0.0778571429 or rounded up is \$0.08 per square inch.

A square inch to measure a round pizza? That would work! Using pi of course.

Only one more hiccup in this data analysis… some users stated that they pay more than minimum wage.

What did you really want to find out when you started the thread about price/minimum wage ratios?

It was really just to get a feel of what others were charging across the country. My area is still stuck in the past in regards to what a fair price should be.

I’ve heard that other parts of the country get a lot more for their pizza.
We also used to pay more than minimum but with this state raising it so fast the kids are getting consistent dollar raises.

In that regard 12" pizza bring you the most profitable in terms of Material cost to pricing…imo
I like 12" pizza from that stand point a lot.

So, we could use more data. But with 11 participates there’s not a real clear match between how much pizza is getting charged for and labor cost.

P.S. sorry these images are huge!

When pricing my menu I figure the cost of the biggest pizza then do the math and increase the price per sq in slightly as the size decreases.
For example if 14" is 30% food cost then a 12" might be 29.5% food cost.
