Use this pizza estimator tool to calculate how many pizzas you need for your gathering.

## How to use the Pizza Estimator Calculator

Enter the number of people who will be eating pizza, the size of each pizza in inches, the number of slices per pizza, and the number of slices each person is expected to eat. Optionally, you can add a buffer by specifying additional pizzas. Click “Calculate” to find out how many pizzas you will need.

## How it calculates the results

The calculator multiplies the number of people by the number of slices per person to get the total number of slices needed. It then divides this number by the number of slices per pizza to determine the number of pizzas required. Finally, it rounds up to the nearest whole number and adds any additional pizzas as a buffer.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that all pizzas will be the same size and have the same number of slices. It does not account for variations in appetites or dietary restrictions such as allergies. Additionally, the buffer is optional, and should be determined based on the context of your event.
