    That is a strange offer, asking if someone would like to eat a pizza and a hamburger. I suppose it is possible... but I think a more plausible offer/invite/ is needed here, e.g "Have dessert and/or a coffee". Here you have three options: a) only dessert b) dessert and coffee c) only coffee. – Mari-Lou A Jan 5 '14 at 7:49

    @Kris obviously a typo, happens to the best of us. – Mari-Lou A Jan 5 '14 at 7:53
  • @Mari-LouA Not a typo. Many do the switch. – Kris Jan 5 '14 at 8:04

You have two good choices. If you're speaking, you can make the "or" likely to be understood as inclusive by speaking it weakly, almost running "pizza or hamburger" together. Alternatively, you can add "or both" on the end.
