How do you eat pizza?

There is an Italian way to eat pizza, and it’s not the way we usually do it in America! That’s one of the things I learned while traveling in Italy, and enjoying plenty of scrumptious pizza. Thin crisp crusts and tasty toppings, everything homemade and fresh.

When you pick up a slice, though, the tip is likely to sag, and the topping may end up in your lap as you rush to get your mouth around it.

Italians don’t have that problem–and they didn’t solve it by using a knife and fork! (Isn’t hand-held food fun?) Instead, they fold the crust edge, giving more strength to that delicious but thin crust, like this:

Try it next time you have a pizza–and call it practice for your next trip to Italy!

Ciao! Sandy

  1. I enjoyed reading this, Sandy. My how to eat pizza lesson came a long time ago when I watched the movie “Houseboat.” Sophia Loren, gave this helpful tip. Fun movie, if you haven’t seen it, I recommend. Blessings!
