Pizza Time is a quote from Spider-Man 2, the 2004 Spider-Man film directed by Sam Raimi and starring Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker. The quote has been used in various remix memes and shitposts as well as a reaction image.
At the beginning of Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker is working as a pizza delivery boy while juggling his duties as Spider-Man. When delivering pizza to a customer, he says the phrase, "Pizza time!"
The clip began becoming a meme in the YouTube community in the early 2010s. One of the earliest remixes of the clip, posted by thisismeisityou on October 4th, 2011, replayed the clip on loop for 10 minutes, gaining over 82,000 views (shown below, left). It was also the subject of many popular YouTube Poops. For example, YouTuber AlpacaHawk posted a YTP on January 1st, 2016 that gained over 2.5 million views (shown below, right). It is possible the spread of the meme was also influenced by the prevalence of pizza in the video game adaptation of Spider-Man 2, which also spawned the Spider-Man 2 Pizza Delivery Theme meme and Oh No, Dr. Connor's Class!
The quote also grew very popular in memes devoted to the film, particularly in /r/Raimiposting. For example, a post about the quote from November 4th, 2018 gained over 6,300 points (shown below, left). Another post using an I Am the Senate parody gained over 1,600 points (shown below, right).
More popular videos referencing the Pizza Time meme include a remix by Chris Kogos that gained over 3.6 million views (shown below, left) and a YouTube Poop by Marcus Lee that gained over 1.2 million views (shown below, right).
