How best to add variations for pizza toppings?

We are setting up Square to run our pizzeria. I cannot figure out the best, most organized and least cumbersome way to set up topping options in variations. For each topping I have to have 3 options so the employee can select the topping for either the whole pizza, the 1st half or 2nd half of the pizza. It makes the order screen very involved as they have a very lengthy list of toppings to scroll through when inputting an order. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: How best to add variations for pizza toppings

Hi @peppinospizzas, sorry to see you haven't received a response to your post yet. I'm not sure there is a good solution for this unfortunately. Ideally we would offer sub-modifiers that could accommodate the three different options, but that's not a feature at the moment.

 

For the time being, I think the best way to organize the toppings would be to create a modifier set for each topping, and have the modifier options be the two halves or whole.

 

Thanks for posting; definitely see how more options here would useful. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Re: How best to add variations for pizza toppings

Please tell me there is a better work around than this modified topping list now almost 19 months latter than this question was asked!  I am stumped and if we can't split pizzas there is no way I can go live with this system.

Re: How best to add variations for pizza toppings

Thanks for checking in on this, @mobileromeos. I went to look for updates that would help solve for the need to split pizza toppings and there isn't anything that I can share out right now—sorry for the frustration.

 

I will be sharing your post with our Point of Sale team and point out that having a visual component to let one designate how toppings need to be added is vital for your pizzeria. We'll circle back with any updates as they come through.

 

In the meantime, you may want to have a look at Square for Restaurants, which we recently introduced. We've also partnered with a handful of restaurant services who may be able to offer a customized solution. For more details, head over to the App Marketplace > Restaurant Management.

 

Hope this helps clear things up a bit more. Please let me know if anything else comes up.

I’m with you on this.  I’d like a picture of a pizza to pick which side the toppings go on.
