  • 15 Pizzas sounds like a good aprox you are sounding good on the soda too. Buy some bags of chips too just in case you run out of pizza.

  • If you have 9 slices per pizza, that would only be 2.7 slices per person. That may not be enough. I would want at least 1 more slice per person just to be safe. I would double the 2 liters too. It may be cheaper to make punch & maybe get some bottled water too.

  • I would say probably 20, that way if there is any left, it would make a good snack! I think at least 15, 2 liters!

  • definately up the soda! I would just go with 20 pizzas too, I know when I used to play basketball and we had parties we had about 3-4 slices per girl lol

  • Wow... thats a lot! Does anyone sell sheet pizzas by you? That would probably save you money. Sheet pizzas typically have 28-32 pieces. Also, if there are kids, maybe get some juice or punch. Maybe make water an option too. Also add some other snack foods in, such as salad, chips and pretzels to cut back on how much pizza you need.
