    I have a milk crate on the rack on the back of my bike. I put the pizza box on the milk crate and secure it with a small cargo net. If I don't have my cargo net I use a couple of bungee cords. I had no problems bringing home a large pizza this way.

    see Wald has a version of a Porteur rack ,now.. their new adjustable length struts
    to the Hub axle are better than the old type.

    went to retrieve a hot pie on my Bike Friday.. front rack.
    I have D rings on the top outside of my Panniers, so a stretch net works..


    another buy was a Pauls Flat bed Porteur rack, found an aluminum Pizza Pan fits OK
    so I can do the take and bake one of those , maybe bring the pan in
    and they can cling wrap it in its cardboard pan over the metal one.

    I usually get the pizza flavored Clif Bars.

    Then you just stick em in your pocket.

    I don't have a rack, and I've never picked up just one box. Sometimes they are three boxes of different sizes. With a trailer I don't worry about strapping them down.

    You only need to do that for turns if your bike is three wheeled or has a sidecar that prevents it from leaning, or if you are in the habit of hanging way off the bike in turns, or throw the bike while pedaling off the saddle.

    Leaning normally in turns _prevents_ the toppings from sliding. Flat turns, as a car makes, encourage them to slide. Yes, really! This is one of those cases where "common sense" fails many people. Pilots would not make such an error.

    The chain deally would be useful for hard stops, but my mind imagines the pizza swinging back down into the head tube when you finally come to rest after a maximum effort stop, and making a mess. For planned stops I imagine you could "fly" the swinging pizza to a gentle landing by modulating the brakes.

    Cars made me fat. Now cars want to make me flat.

    Couldn't you just stack the pieces with wax paper into a narrower box?
