You would think that an Itialian would make a top box big enough for a pizza! (Fits if you fold it-good thing it was cheap).

Can't you get a stack of Personal Pan Pizzas in a top box?

As much as I enjoy a good pizza, I'll take the donuts (apple fritters FTW!)

It is big enough for the leftovers.

If there are any.
I'd call that good enough.

The Shad top box on my Lance fits a small pizza box, a 6 pack of bottled beer, and my purse. WIN!

A few sausage rolls from the supermarket put in under seat storage will be warmed up by the time you ride home. Brilliant.

Set it on the seat between you and the top box and hold in place with your Bum. that's how I do it for a large pizza.

Or go to Ledo's Pizza and their large fits because it's a rectangle, not round

Always pack a bungee net in your pet carrier and you can put that pizza ANYWHERE.

Easy: an attractive young woman rides with you as passenger, reaches around your waist, and holds the box securely in your lap. We actually did this!

The Top Box is a useless accessory as designed. However, to Vespa's credit, it will hold a traditional Naples sized pizza. Our "Murican" sized ones need a rear rack and cargo net.

What does fit: A bottle of Chianti with rustic bread, cheese, a cutting board, knife, glasses and a table cloth to keep it all secure!

Solution: Buy a smaller pizza, or better yet, get the ingredients and make your own. By the way, the pizza was invented in Greece.

Swap out the Chianti for a Barolo and that sounds perfect! May as well toss a Brio in as well.

Useless factoid of the day. In Silence of the Lamb's it's originally an Amarone and not a Chianti Hannibal had with the liver. The film producers figured most people wouldn't know what an Amarone is. It's actually my favourite wine though I do enjoy a good CDP or Chablis as well.

we needed dinner for the race team one time, so drove down the street on the Vespa, and rode back one handed with the other hand holding the full size pizza box up in the air...

felt so Italian...

The real reason nearly all current Vespas are automatics?

I will just eat the pizza at the restaurant. Which is also bad because it now leaves room for my wife to go shopping while we are the pizza location. You can stuff a lot of clothes in one of those top boxes.
