You know that stage of quarantine where it’s 4 a.m. and you’re sitting in an empty bathtub, fully clothed while eating a piece of cold cheese toast (you may be in that stage right now)? Wouldn’t it be so much better if you had some fresh, hand-made pizza instead? Imagine it – this moment would go from awkward and uncomfortable to a one-person pizza party instantly! Yet, it’s 4 a.m., and the only pizza you could reasonably get your hands on is a 6-year-old frozen disc slumbering in a Digorno box that’s tucked away in the back of your freezer.

That’s where Good Pizza, Great Pizza comes in. From TapBlaze and PM Studios this business and pizza-making sim tasks players with cooking specialty pizzas for colorful and quirky characters all while maintaining enough income to keep the pizza shop open. Players can upgrade their shop with new equipment and toppings to service, and please more customers in an effort to outperform a rival pizzeria across the street.  Only one pizza establishment can attain the coveted title of “Best Pizza” in the city!

 

 

Sure, you can’t eat any of the pizzas in this pizzeria simulator, but you can certainly make a ton of ‘em! There’s more to making pizzas though. Customer service is key, so get ready to chat with your customers. Combine these tasks and if you make enough pizzas, then you might just be able to virtually fill that stuffed-crust shaped hole in your heart! (The cheese toast just won’t cut it. I know, I’ve been there.)

“Now hold on!” you may be shouting at your phone screen. “How do I know I can trust this pizza business game’s accuracy to the source material?!” Well, I’m glad you shouted that at me through the internet because I couldn’t figure out a smoother way to let you know that Good Pizza, Great Pizza was actually made by pizza professionals! In fact, one member of the team has four years of experience working in a pizza kitchen under their belt, so you can rest assured that the continuity of pizza lore is still safe and sound! How else could these features rise evenly and be ready for the pizza oven?
