Advanced Pizza Depletion: Topping Levels
Select Maintenance > Menu > Advanced Pizza Depletion > Topping Levels to define break points for pizza toppings
The POS system uses the Topping Levels function in conjunction with the Pizza Sizes function and pizza menu items to provide increased accountability and to more accurately deplete inventory counts. Base each level upon when the amount of each topping decreases as you add more toppings to the pizza. For example, if you use five ounces of onions on a pizza up to three toppings but decrease to only four ounces of onions when the pizza has four or more toppings, you need to create a new topping level.
Tip: You must access Maintenance > Business > Corporate Administration and select 'Display advanced pizza' to view the Advanced Pizza Depletion menu options.
Reference: Advanced Pizza is separate from and does not build upon the Pizza Modifiers feature. Refer to the Advanced Pizza Feature Focus Guide for more information about the Pizza Sizes and Topping Levels functions, which the system uses solely for Advanced Pizza functionality.

Name — Identifies and helps reflect a separation of the pizza topping levels, such as 1-3 Toppings, 4-6 Toppings, 7-9 Toppings, and more. Required Options: You must select ‘Topping’ in Maintenance > Menu > Items > Item tab to enable the Pizza Topping Matrix tab and then select the Pizza Topping Matrix tab and select this level from ‘Pizza Topping Level’ for the appropriate pizza topping.
Minimum value — Designates the lowest number of toppings to associate with this level. For example, if this level applies to pizzas from one to three toppings, type a minimum value of 1. When the pizza has fewer toppings than this value, the system moves to the next lower pizza topping level.
Maximum value — Designates the highest number of toppings to associate with this level. For example, if this level applies to pizzas from one to three toppings, type a maximum value of 3. When the pizza has more toppings than this value, the system moves to the next higher pizza topping level.
