How Many Inches Is a Large Pie?

Let's get right down to it. You want to know "how many inches is a large pizza?" and we have the answer right here for you. The standard size for a large pie is approximately 16-inches in diameter. That means straight across, crust-to-crust, you're looking at just under a foot-and-a-half of pure deliciousness.

Of course, there are a few things that can cause slight variations in these measurements. At Hungry Howie's®, for example, we spin all of our pizza pies by hand with dough that's made fresh daily. That means that the measurements may be off by just a tad, but it's a good thing, it means your pizza is made fresh just for you.

At Hungry Howie's®, we do have an extra-large pizza that's even bigger than the 16 inches pizza, so if you're looking for even more pie, be sure to ask about our specialty pizzas in bigger sizes.

How Many Pizza Slices Are In a Large Pie?

Now that you know how many inches a large pizza is, your next question is likely how many slices it has. The standard large pie throughout the industry has six to eight slices, depending on specific pizza restaurants. At Hungry Howie's® all of our large pizzas have eight slices. This is standard across every Hungry Howie's® restaurant, so you don't have to worry about getting something different if you order from a new or different location.

You may notice that many medium pizzas are also eight slices and wonder what the difference is between the two. It's the total diameter, the 16-inches, that makes the sizes of pizza different. A medium-sized pizza will generally be approximately 14-inches.

How Many People Does a Large Pie Feed?

We also receive the question of how many people will a large feed? Or how much to order based on slices per person? This, of course, depends greatly on how hungry everyone is and whether they have major pizza appetites. However, generally, we advise that a large pie can feed up to six people, assuming that most people eat one slice and just a few go back for a second piece of the pie.

If you're ordering for a starving crew or have a bunch that routinely eats two to three slices of pizza at a time each, you'll need to order more than one pie. That's okay, too, because at Hungry Howie's® we have enough pizza to go around. We'll make sure no one in your group has to go hungry!

How Much Does a Large Pie Cost?

Are you looking to see how you'll have to divide up the cost of a large pie you're splitting between friends, or just want to know how much your pizza will take out of your pocket? It's an understandable question-- no one likes to order something without knowing the cost first. After all, if you come in under budget, you may want to add on some yummy sides like Howie Wings®, a fresh salad, or soft drinks.

The cost of a large pie at Hungry Howie's® will vary based on the type of pizza you're ordering. Plain cheese pizzas generally cost the least, with additional charges per topping. One topping pies (like pepperoni pizzas, for example) are usually the next cheapest. Specialty Hungry Howie's® pizzas like the Meat Eaters Pizza, the BBQ Chicken Pizza, or the Howie Special Pie are likely to be in the higher cost bracket.

However, we do everything we can to ensure that our pies remain as affordable as possible because we believe that tasty pizza should be within reach for every single person.
