Past and Present Pizza Packaging

Today’s history lesson covers to-go pizzas from a brick-and-mortar pizza purveyor.

The pizza can be a baked to-go order with you, the customer, carrying your delight out the door and eating it wherever you eat your food.

Do not be a cheapskate.

Tip the driver.

Many benefits from tipping that you may never be aware of.

A HUGE “Thanks!!!” to Scott Wiener for doing the research and posting this:
