• The difference lies in the dimensions. A medium size pizza would be about 9′ to 10′ while a big/large pizza would be about 12′, the latter being more expensive. This is not the only difference. Medium pizzas are generally meant for a group of 2/3 people, while a large pizza is meant for about 4 people.


  • A large pizza is almost always a better deal than two mediums. When you increase the width of your pizza it actually adds to the total size of your pie exponentially. For example, a 16-inch large might seem twice as big as an 8 inch small but its actually four times as much pizza.

    Secondly, what is the best size pizza? The Best Pizza Value at Dominos, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns Team Clark compared prices for 12-inch medium and 14-inch large pizzas at three national chains: Dominos, Pizza Hut and Papa Johns.

    Also asked, how many medium pizzas equal a large?

    That large pizza has the same area as 2 medium pizzas (14 inches) and 6.3 smalls (8 inches). To equal the same amount of pizza as the large, it would set you back an additional .82 and .79 respectively. For an even more drastic example, a large 30-inch pizza will run you about .24.
