    Who cares?

    Hand tossed pizza isn't be made into a square and it is not cost effective to make round boxes, but what do I know I just pull one out of the freezer and pop it in the oven for 18 minutes

    probably is easier and costs less to make square boxes, not all pizza is round though, sicilian is square or rectangular.

    Cause round boxes are hard to make.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Square boxes are easier to stack.

    If they are flat on the bottom and top they would stack just fine

    OK, how about it's because round boxes might roll away, forcing pizza deliverypersons to waste valuable tim chasing after them down the street instead of getting the pizza to their customers in 30 minutes or less?

    See what happens when I don't google for answers?

    But Jenna, wouldn't it be faster and easier for the delivery person to just roll the pizza to it's customers.

    We know you could not help yourself and you did google the question, come on, tell the truth, what did you find? Come on,

    OK, I tried to "think outside the box" about this without Google, but you didn't like my answers, so I have no choice but to Google.

    This is apparently a very popular question on the internet, and a Google search produced thousands of hits with the phrase "round pizza square box" in it. The top hit was from a site called "Stupid Questions Answered".

    http://www.stupidquestionsanswered.c...d/pizzabox.htm

    (Not that I should be throwing round rocks at stupid questions, living in a square glass house as I do! )

    The answers seemed to be mostly the same as the ones I and others came up with, some of which sparked heated and sometimes cheesy debates like the ones in this thread. But apparently someone else (
    http://www.pizzamarketplace.com/article.php?id=3155) has already come up with the idea of a round pizza box already, so there goes your idea for funding O/R with an innovative new round pizza box business!

    Because they are made by someone who is still mad because he couldn't get the square peg in the round hole as a child.

    BTW, the Sicilician pizzas I always ate in the Bronx were rectangular not round. That was some good pizza!

    Crosby Ave Pizza makes a round Sicilian pie, some rave over it, personnally I like the more old fashions rectangular, airier dough type.

    There are alot of great pizzerias in the Bronx! It is all in the dough, NY water makes the best dough, bread, bagels and so forth.

    I can't remember if I knew where Crosby Street was! The pizza place I mostly went to was (is still?) on Morris Park Avenue. It was on a corner and was owned by former(?) LEOs if I recall correctly. I lived in that area for just short of four years (1992-1995).

    A round Sicilian just doesn't sound right.

    So pot-heads don't eat the box, thinking it's the pizza.

    Pizza Hut used to market a rectangular pizza. They called it The Big Foot. It was 12 by 18 inches long and you could get anything you wanted on it. The price wasn't too bad either.

    Because a square pizza wouldn't fit in a round box. What is the question tomorrow Reca, why do hot dogs come in packages of ten and hot dog buns come in packages of eight.
