Enter the pizza radius (in) and the pizza thickness (in) into the Pizza Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Pizza Volume. 

Pizza Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pizza Volume. 

PV = pi*PR^2*PT

  • Where PV is the Pizza Volume (in^3)
  • PR is the pizza radius (in) 
  • PT is the pizza thickness (in) 

How to Calculate Pizza Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pizza Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the pizza radius (in). 
    1. The pizza radius (in) is given as: 15.
  2. Next, determine the pizza thickness (in). 
    1. The pizza thickness (in) is provided as: .25.
  3. Finally, calculate the Pizza Volume using the equation above: 

PV = pi*PR^2*PT

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PV = pi*15^2*.25 = 176.714 (in^3)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

pizza radius (in) = 16

pizza thickness (in) = .5

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

PV = pi*PR^2*PT = ?
