3 Pizza Orders Inspired By The 1990’s

Nostalgia can bring back a lot of memories for people. Whether it's an old toy, song, or food item, those feelings can bring you comfort and warmth. For fans of the 1990's, there are many things from the decade that can still be found today. When ordering pizza from your favorite local restaurant, there are three different types of orders that can draw inspiration from the 90's. 

Extra, Extra, Cheese

In many 1990's TV shows and movies, it never seemed like there could be too much cheese on the pizza. Three prime examples of this come from classic movie sequels. "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze," and "Problem Child 2" all feature scenes with pizza. These pizzas are not just ordinary pizzas though, they are loaded with thick and stretchy cheese. The characters all enjoyed the pizza, especially in "Home Alone 2" when Kevin got his pizza all to himself in the back of a stretch limo. You can create this style by ordering a double-dose of extra mozzarella at your local restaurant. Mozzarella is the best cheese option for stretching, but you can increase the variety of cheese options on your pizza with choices like cheddar or goat cheese. Each slice that you pull off will stretch the cheese out and pack your mouth with flavor.

The Bigfoot Pizza

As a child, nothing seemed more appealing than Pizza Hut's Bigfoot Pizza. While it has long been discontinued, you can get a similar type of pizza at your local restaurant. The key to the Bigfoot pizza was the size and toppings. A majority of the Bigfoot Pizzas included four different meats on it. When ordering a similar pizza, select meat toppings like ham, pepperoni, sausage, and ground beef. Select a thinner crust style if it's available. You can take the Bigfoot eating challenge alone or share this pizza with a group of friends.

Cafeteria Pizza

When going to school in the 1990's, nothing seemed better in the lunchroom than when it was pizza day. Along with school-based 90s shows like "Saved by the Bell" and "Doug" that showcased lunchroom pizza, it was great to have it in real life. The key to enjoying these pizzas were their shapes. Instead of being cut into traditional triangle slices, lunch room pizza was sliced into squares and rectangles. The next time you order a pizza, ask the restaurant to cut it into rectangle shapes. Plop a slice down on a dinner tray and enjoy all of the school memories that come flooding back.
