I ordered a pizza the other night and as usual I ordered by diameter and not by the so-called number of slices they said each pie was split up into.
The truth is that (thankfully) the government has not stepped in and mandated the official size/weight/calorie count of a slice of pizza. There is no amalgamated pizza measuring service,society or organization to declare what consists of a single slice of pizza. A slice of pizza is what the pizzeria wants it to be.
A pizzeria is free to take an eight-inch pie and split it up into two or four or for that matter sixty-four little dinky slices and advertise it as such. I have no problem with this.
However, when I order a pie I simply order by diameter. That way you have a pretty good idea of what you are getting.
