Don't they all head out on the same night? I remember walking up the road to the school bus one year and there were dozens of squashed ones :sad:
I predict that the same will happen on June 21st ;)

As per the answer from @Gregmay...
1 X 16 inch pizza = 200 sq inches
1 X 12inch pizza = 113 sq inches
2 X 10 inch pizzas = 156 sq inches, they fit in the rack, and more scope for topping choices
