How Big is a Large Pizza

Whether you’re planning a big party or just want some pizza to munch on while you watch football, one common question you might ask yourself is how big is a large pizza? While every pizza shop might be slightly different, almost all larges are 14 inches with ten slices.

Hello, hello, hello! I’m Michelle, and I am a huge fan of pizza. I’m pretty sure I have tried every pizza place within a 20-mile radius. To be honest, every large is slightly different, but the basics all remain the same. And that’s what I’m here to chat with you about today!

We all know what a large pizza is. But do you want to really know what a large pizza is? Then this article is the article for you. We are diving deep into the world of large pizzas to understand how big they are, plus some other fun facts you might want to know.

How Big is a Large Pizza?

Before we get started, I will tell you this much: every pizza place will be different. I have bought large pizzas and said, “Wow, this is a large pizza?” in a happy tone. I have also said, “Wow, this is a large pizza.” in an angry tone. I think that speaks for itself.

Today we’re talking about the basics. While some pizza shops may have a completely different meaning for the term “large,” you can almost always expect a large pizza to be 14 inches around

How Many Slices in a Large Pizza?

Slicing can also change depending on the pizza place. Some shops believe in itty-bitty slices. Seriously. One of the local pizza places by my home cuts their pizza slices so incredibly small that you need to have three just to get a “normal” slice of pizza consumed.

On the other hand, some places believe in huge slices. It is all up to the business. The good news about XL slices is that you can always cut them into smaller pieces if you need to. 

However, while every pizza place cuts differently, the typical number of slices in a large pizza is ten slices

How Many People Can a Large Pizza Feed?

Well, there are a few things to take into consideration. There are ten pieces in a large pizza. So, you could potentially feed up to ten people, although I would not recommend trying to do so. It’s simply not enough pizza to fill someone’s belly, especially adults.

For a large pizza, I recommend serving no more than five people. That way, every guest gets at least two slices of pizza. 

If you know you have some big eaters coming over, you might want to cut down the servings to three people per large pizza – three slices each (and a fight for the last slice).


So, it’s pretty simple. A large pizza is 14 inches around and comes with ten slices. Are you still not satisfied? Okay, okay. Don’t worry. I have pulled up some of the most commonly asked questions to appease you. Let’s dive in!

How big is large Domino’s Pizza?

A large Domino’s pizza is 13.5 inches around. See? Not every pizza place goes by the standard 14-inch per large pizza rule. However, Domino’s still has ten slices in their 13.5-inch “large” pizza, so the serving size remains the same.

Is a 12-inch pizza a large one?

How big is a large pizza at Pizza Hut?

Pizza Hut “plays by the rules” and crafts large pizzas that are 14 inches in diameter. 

Are 2 Medium pizzas bigger than a large?

This is a tricky question, but I’m going to say that two medium pizzas are not bigger than a large one. Sure, you get a few extra slices of pizza with two mediums. But, those slices are smaller than the slices found in a large pizza. I suggest going the large route with more sides.

What is the most popular pizza size?

Final Words

If you’re on the fence about getting a large pizza, get it. A large pizza is a big pizza that is traditionally 14 inches in diameter and comes with ten good-sized slices.
