Pizza Etiquette Eat Like Someone is Watching Outclass the Competition

Pizza can be served as a main course on a serving dish. Pizza is to be served with  sides: soup,    wings, crudités, hummus, salad, or fruit, and a cookie or ice cream.

In public, avoid eating pizza directly from a box. Pizza is not to be sopped with paper napkins to drain off the oils, (something I have seen,) and this is not a request normally asked for from a kitchen.

Under a roof, pizza is to be eaten from a plate placed center each place setting, from an established cover: with a plate, fork, and a knife; optionally, a glass is to be placed above the knife space to the right of the plate space, and  with a napkin placed on the lap.

Pizza can be eaten with a knife and fork. This is normally reserved for a deep dish pie, or one with a running sauce. Even then it is a personal choice.

Pizza may be placed on a plate and eaten with the fingers. The sides may be bent upwards and the wedge taken to the mouth and pizza eaten one bite at a time.

Pizza may be pre-cut into squares and used as a cocktail food, held on a plate, with it and a napkin and drink in one hand, as practice for a real cocktail party.
