Sorry, I never host parties or get togethers so I really have no judge on how much people eat!! And I don't want to go too nuts (both for budget and leftovers going to waste while I'm gone on honeymoon). Is this ok?

15 adults, 1 toddler- no vegetarians or dietary restrictions

  • 1- garden salad (says serves 10)
  • 1- cheese party pizza yields 24 squares
  • 1- pepperoni party pizza yields 24 squares
  • 3 side orders mozzarella sticks (8 each total 24)
  • 3 side orders french fries
  • 3 side orders garlic bread
  • drinks/ soda

    I would get rid of the french fries and possibly the mozzarella sticks and add a second salad and at LEAST 2 more pizzas.

    I doubt those pizza squares are that big and most people will eat more pizza than anything else.

  • I would add another salad and at least one more pizza, perhaps a vegetable option or another plain. You should have enough salad for everyone.

    Double the salad.

    3 more pizzas, including one with veggies. Maybe 4 more, depending on the size of the squares. I'd do minimum 5 large pizzas cut in traditional wedges for 15 people, so you need the equivalent of that.

    Nix the fries, especially if this is carry out/delivery. Cold fries are gross.

    1-2 extra orders of cheese sticks, but these are also gross as carry out.

    Plenty of pizza, salad, and garlic bread plus beverages and dessert should do you fine.

    The recommended "serving sizes" on things like salad never come out when it's serve yourself. People naturally over-serve themselves. So if it's a family-style that serves 10, assume 5-7.
