ONE THING... on Small Teams

There is the famous “two pizza rule” created by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos: you have to be able to feed your entire team on two pizzas. If your teams are as hungry as mine, that’s like 6 people.

How many pizzas would it take to feed your current team? How many people would be on your ideal team? Are there exceptions?
