React Pizza Parlor

Before you get started make sure to read through ALL requirements and outline a plan for your group. Assign out tasks and use branches to allow team members to work in parallel.


Server side code for baseline functionality has been provided for you. Each member of your team will need to create a pizza_parlor database.

Import data

Right now, the owner enters all of the orders in SQL, but they want any of their employees to be able to enter a new order. The owner has provided some of the server side routes and a way to create their database with (database.sql). Your team should build out the following views.

Start your server

npm install
npm run server

Now that the server is running, open a new terminal tab with cmd + t and start the react client app.

Start your client

npm run client

Base Mode ad API DOCS

The tasks for Base Mode are broken down further on this Trello Board. Take time before diving into the code to copy this board and build out the plan even further.

After starting up the server, the following routes should be available. You can test them with Postman.



Returns an array of objects with *

*, name, description, image_path and cost properties.



Post Data should be an object that contains user information, customer name, street address, city, zip, order_total and an array of pizza id’s as object.

In Postman, select the Body tab, select Raw radio button, and then a blue dropdown appears and select JSON.

Example JSON Post Data:

  "customer_name": "Donatello",
  "street_address": "20 W 34th St",
  "city": "New York",
  "zip": "10001",
  "total": "27.98",
  "type": "Pickup",
  "pizzas": [{
    "id": "1",
    "quantity": "1"
    "id": "2",
    "quantity": "1"



Returns an array of orders.


Your client has asked your team to build a pizza ordering system.


When visiting http://localhost:3000/ display all of the pizzas on the screen. Allow users to add or remove each pizza they would like to order. For base mode, only allow the user to have one of each pizza in their cart. Show the total cost of items in the cart in the top right of this page.

This page should have a next button that brings the user to the enter order details page.

Select Pizza View


Collect user information, name, street address, city and zip. This page should have an option to select pickup vs. delivery. The total cost of the order should appear in the top right of this page. This page should have a next button that brings the user to the checkout page.

Select Pizza View


Users should not be able to modify item totals on this screen. When they click checkout, the user information, order total and array of pizzas should be sent to the server. After the checkout is complete, navigate the user back to the select pizza page AND clear out the reducers as appropriate. Each order should begin with “clean” order data (cart, address, etc).

Select Pizza View


This page should not appear in the navigation bar. Eventually the client would like to add authentication but for now, it will be available to anyone with the url http://localhost:3000/admin. This page will display the name, time and order total for each of the orders placed.

Select Pizza View


  • Improve the styling of the app using Material-UI cards, buttons, nav bar and icons.
  • Allow the user to go back to previous pages (until they’ve completed checkout).
  • Display a list of pizzas for each order on the orders page.
  • Add pictures to the public/images folder and update the image url for each pizza in the database.
  • Add a button on the orders page to track delivery status.
  • Allow admins to click on an order and see all of the details for that order (which pizzas were a part of that particular order). For the details of the order with id of 1, it will be available to anyone with the url http://localhost:3000/order/1. This route is not built on the server, so you will need to create it.
