# How much bigger is a 14 inch pizza than a 12 inch?

A 14-inch pizza is approximately **29% larger** than a 12-inch pizza in terms of area.

The size of a pizza is determined by its diameter, which is the distance across the center of the pizza. A 14-inch pizza is **two inches larger** in diameter than a 12-inch pizza. However, the difference in size between the two pizzas is not just two inches, but rather the **area of the 14-inch pizza is significantly larger** than the area of the 12-inch pizza.

## How to calculate the area of a circle

To calculate the area of a circle (and thus the area of a pizza), you use the formula A = Οr^2, where A is the area, Ο is pi (approximately 3.14), and r is the radius of the circle (which is half the diameter).

But you donβt have to do all these calculations with a pen and pencil β use our calculator.
