    Unlimited = 5?

    At Gatti's Pizza, "Unlimited Pizza Toppings" = "Limit: Five Toppings"?

    Reminds me of the "unlimited" web hosting debate in some ways.

    See http://consumerist.com/5379129/unlim...-five-toppings for the original pizza-related article. It was amusing.

    probably they have a lame explanation like:
    there is no limit to which topping to choose, but only up to 5.

    It's no more lame than any "unlimited" hosting TOS.

    At least there is an actual specific number that consumers understand. Unlike vague terms found in hosting, such as "because we feel like it".

    Hey, archive.org has come pretty close to having (most of) the Internet on its HD arrays.

    Archive.org rarely has the images though, mostly just the text so I can't imagine it being more than a Petabyte.

    At least its on the actual ad, not hiding in a TOS.

    Talking

    lol, I think UNLIMITED have different meanings in a Restaurant World and Hosting World...

    Hosting World
    Unlimited Space
    Unlimited Bandwidth
    Unlimited Subdomains
    Unlimited Support

    and in Restaurant World
    Unlimited Toppings*

    * Upto 5

    to me this just sounds like they have poorly worded the term unlimited pizza toppings..

    what they proberly mean to say is....you can have unlimited amount of your chosen five toppings. does that make more sense?

    dunno about you though but why would somone want 72398472894379823749872394729384729874 pepperoni on there pizza lmao.

    I think that there are problems cooking pizza after a certain amount of toppings. What I also found interesting is the fact they say no double portions of toppings. If its up to fix toppings, why cant I have double ham, double onion, and black olives, that equals 5 last time I checked.

    On another note, that pizza in the ad looked pretty yummy.

    That pizza looks terrible.

    Diced onions and gr peppers so uniformly cut indicates that thye buy the product pre-cut in bags. There's more to toppings than just flavor. There's no texture in that and they cook down to mush way to fast.

    Hello,
    This caught me off gouard, but here is a few of the normal sayings aroung this.

    Can you resell the pizza or even resell the pizza to other resellers (Unlimited Reseller and Unlimited Master/Alpha Punch)

    When you get an unlimited length Peperoni, I will put on Unlimited Toppings.

    There is a statement in the TOS that it is limited to 50,000 Individual Toppings (iNodes) - This includes each speck of cheese.

    If they didn't limit the toppings to 5 then the pizza wouldn't get baked at some point cause it would be to thick.
