This is like a blind date with 2 people betting each other. Not sure of the rules, but looks like someone might have the option to reject your date for money, or give up money for another date. Not in English, but you can turn on captions.

Which is more pizza?

An 18” large pizza, or two 12” medium pizzas?

depends upon sobriety, math inclination and valuation of crusts.

18" large is about 254 square inches.

Two 12" mediums is about 226 square inches.

But you lose even more parity on a pizza, because unless you like bare crust or order a special one, there's a 1-2 in rind on most pizzas. In our house, with 2 dogs, those are known as "pizza bones", on the rare occasion the dogs get people food. So the dogs vote for 2 mediums, the people vote for 1 large. Ymmv.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

A large is still "more pizza," which is what the question was.

this can be done in your head without a calculator or pen and paper, perhaps you saw my earlier post on that?

a matter of the radius squared

9^2, or 81 ... versus ... 6^2 doubled , or 72 ; so the large size wins this one

the other factor, pi, does not need to be crunched out

Gimmie a fork and I can do the pie part; crunching pi would require sobriety, but if the dogs vote one way well that is just going to be the way it is, each and every time.

Even if you throw away the crust. The large is still bigger.
