    Because round boxes would be really hard to fold flat.

    My guess is that it's easier and/or cheaper to engineer and/or ship and/or store.

    Idk. Buttt I do know that those little plastic tables inside the box are to keep the lid from touching the cheese and messing it up :D

    I have seen round boxes, but as you add more sides to a box and make the shape more complicated it becomes more expensive to buy. More cost means more expensive pizza that you won't buy.

    Not an unreasonable question.

    Can you imagine square pizza and round boxes?

    Probably for shipping purposes. Round things tend to roll.

    It would be a lot easier to make a square pizza than to mass produce and ship circular boxes. Square boxes are collapsible and stack-able.

    It is a lot cheaper to manufacture round pizzas and sell us the empty air space.

    They want to let everyone know that buying pizza is conformity, because buying it is so SQUARE!

    It's all just a conspiracy to sell more cardboard. The corners of a square box with a round pizza inside are just wasted space, but you paid for that space. It's a scam on society and it needs to stop.
