After my last post, I decided to call the Buddy's Bloomfield location, which is one of its carryout locations, to see if I could confirm what I said in my last post about the slices. I spoke with Lisa, the lady who answered the phone. She confirmed everything I said in my last post but for one aspect. She said the they use the 8-square pizza for slice sales but the slices are cut into six pieces rather than eight. I asked her if that was because the slices would otherwise be too small, and she said yes.
The above information then gave me pause to wonder what kind of slices dicepackage ordered and showed in Reply 127 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3783.msg81715.html#msg81715
. As noted in that post, the slices were purchased from the Point Plaza Buddy's location, which is indicated by Buddy's to be a Restaurant/Bar/Carry-out (http://www.buddyspizza.com/documents/Carryout110.pdf
). So, I decided to call that location. The fellow who answered the phone told me that they do sell slices, and that they are cut from the 8-squares, again in six pieces. If dicepackage actually got four slices from an 8-square pizza that was cut into six pieces, that would change the numbers that I previously used for calculation purposes. I will have to revisit his numbers to see whether it is possible to determine what an 8-square cheese and pepperoni pizza weighs and work backwards to see if it is possible to get individual ingredient weights.
I also asked the fellow who answered the phone at the Point Plaza location whether the other sit-down Buddy's locations also sold slices and he said he didn't know.
Edit (1/18/13): Corrected the name of the Bloomfield location.
