an order for/of
Are "for" and "of" interchangeable in the following cases?
We had two orders of pizza.
We placed an order for a new computer.
Re: an order for/of
If you change "of" to "for" in the first sentence it would be a correct sentence but would have a different meaning, you could say it if, for example, you run a restaurant and last night you had two customers who ordered pizza.
