As a senior,it is my son's turn to host the weekly pre-game party for his football team. There are about 45-50 teenagers invited. We are planning on getting pizzas, making pulled pork, pasta salad, nacho dip, buffalo chicken dip, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, desserts, and chips. For beverages, soda, bottled water, and iced tea. How much should we make, or buy?? Especially need help with pizzas, pulled pork, chips, and beverages. Thanks for your help in advance...
