From searchwin2000.com:

The term "pizza box server" refers to the shape of a computer server enclosed in a rectangular and horizontally-arranged chassis and often installed in a rack with similar servers. In any country where Italian pizza can be ordered for home or office delivery, it comes in a box of roughly the same size as one of these servers.

If you ever saw one you would understand. They were designed to maximize vertical space in a server rack. The ones I use take up only 1 "U" of rack space each. 1 "U" equals 1 & 1/2 inches.

These are rack mounted units. 1U actually equals 1.75 inches.
