Do you eat your pizza using your hands? or do you still use knife and fork to eat it? I prefer to eat with my hands, i find it enjoyable and yummy licking my fingers.

Pizza is an informal food and should be eaten using your hands. But if you prefer to use utensils, it's still acceptable. For me, I eat pizza using my hands, treated with alcogel =)

Definitely my hands. I never used a knife and fork for pizza. Ever. I hate when people fold their pizza though. They should enjoy the greasy goodness of a full slab of pizza. I don't eat it often but when I do, I don't mind a little sauce on my face and hands. I just clean up afterwards. I also don't cut up my bacon with a knife but have friends who do...

I eat pizza with my hands and then lick my fingers it's always so good. I don't eat more than a couple of slices but they sure are good. I'm hungry now.

Hi there bluishrose, I use my hands when I eat my pizza. Sometimes I am so "maarte" so I would use fork and knife but that was really very rare. Even in restaurants or malls, I would usually eat my pizza using my hands. I think it is still the best way to enjoy this food. Do you agree?

Absolutely! I agree eating with hands is the best way to enjoy food. Finger licking food!

Yes, sometimes I eat pizzas with my hands and sometimes I eat them with fork and knife. It depends on the restaurant itself. If it's a high class restaurant, I can't eat it with hands:)

Pizza is finger licking good...that's why you should eat it with your hands. I don't get those people who are all proper when it comes to pizza and cut it up to eat it. That takes all the fun out of having pizza. It also tastes much better when left whole and picked up to eat.

I like to eat it with my hands as well. The only time I use a fork is if it is a really thick pizza and then I ususally start with a fork but then end up picking it up with my hands once it is manageable!!

unless it's really messy (lots of toppings and sauce) or it's a deep dish, I always eat pizza with my hands.

It depends on what type of pizza I take. Besides pizza with lots of messy toppings I usually enjoy taking it by holding it with hand.

I do most of the time eat with a knife and fork. I have no idea why I started doing that because most of my family eats their pizza just by picking it up and eating it with their hands.

You normaly do eating a pizza with your hands and I enjoy doing that too. But sometimes I eat them with knife and fork - it always depends on my mood. Yeah my mood. I know that sounds strange since you'll ask "what does the mood has to do with eating a pizza" Oh well, I can't answer the question but it's just like I said. LoL. I know I'm a strange person ;-) If I guess... I would say I eat pizza 98% using my hands and 2% with knife and fork..

with knife and fork.. why? because pizzas i usually i eat are too oily and unlike what i see on TV that's what you can call 'finger lickin' lookin' good. . . and sometimes i'm just too lazy to still have to wash that oil from my fingers..hehe

I think you can not enjoy pizza if you eat with fork or knife. There are many Indian dishes that taste good only if you use your hands.

I eat pizza using my hands. I just don't know why since I like it better that using utensils. I find it really interesting and somewhat mysterious why It taste better when you use the hands. Maybe it just my mind playing because obviously the ingredients would not change by using the hands but how come it taste better. Any, I consider pizza as a finger food so definitely I am not gonna use anything else except my hands in putting the pizza to my mouth. Have to go and get the pizza....
