Everyone loves a classic date night of dinner and a movie — it’s entertainment, it’s food, and there’s at least something to talk about if the date isn’t going well. The hardest part, though, is what movie should you watch? Here are some of our all-time favorite movies with the most iconic pizza scenes.
Featuring Sanda Bullock in a very ‘90s movie about the dangers of identity theft when no one knew what identity theft was, The Net actually has very little to do with pizza. But if you grew up in a world where kids weren’t attached to their phones, you’ll understand how strange it was that someone could order their pizza online. What still impresses us is that Sandra’s character is able to eat nearly an entire large pizza all to herself.
You can’t go wrong with a classic Steve Martin movie. Ever had pizza in a cup? Even though you won’t find it at Dalia’s Pizza, you can definitely try ordering one of our famous West Covina pizzas and try making it yourself!
A small-town pizza restaurant in Mystic, Connecticut gets a visit from a food critic. One of the first major appearances by Julia Roberts, it’s a great story of teenage drama and love, and of course, pizza. And the good news is that there’s a real life Mystic Pizza that has become famous due to the popularity of the movie. If you don’t want to travel across the country from West Covina to get pizza, just give Dalia’s Pizza a call!
Eat Pray Love
Julia Roberts gets the best pizza movies. This one is based on a memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert who travels through Italy, India, and Indonesia. In Italy, she discovers just how amazing a truly authentic slice of Margherita pizza from Naples is. It’s so good that she reveals that she’s “having a relationship with my pizza.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Ok, hear us out on this one. It might not be a top pick for a date night unless you have kids. But even if you don’t, there’s just something about TMNT that makes us feel like kids again. And you’ll be surprised at how many lines you remember. The most memorable pizza scene? It’s of course when Michelangelo plays a trick on the delivery guy when he can’t find the address and has to drop the pizza box through the grates.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
If you were listening to a lecture on Spain and Cuba you’d want to order a pizza too. And what teacher wouldn’t grab a slice for themselves, right? The movie is not a very authentic portrayal of high school, but who cares when you’re laughing along with a young Sean Penn?
Dinner and a movie is one thing, but when it’s pizza for dinner and a movie about pizza or with the most memorable pizza scenes, it will surely be a night to remember.
