How Do Italians Eat Pizza: A Step-by-step Guide

We’ll just come out with it: you’ve been eating pizza all wrong and it’s not your fault. So how do Italians eat their pizza?

Yes, there is a “right” way to dive into a Neapolitan-style pizza. But don’t worry: we’re confident that with enough practice — and after studying our guide — you’ll fit in at the most Italian pizzerie out there.

1. Don’t hesitate.

Pick up your knife and fork as soon as the piping-hot pizza is delivered to your table. There’s no need to wait for the pizza to cool is considered an insult to the pizzaiolo (pizza maker).

2. Get triangular.

Slice a triangular slice of pizza, if it hasn’t been pre-cut for you. We’ve seen die-hard Italians even use “pizza shears” (some might call them scissors).

3. Cut and bite.

Cut off the pointed end of that slice, and transfer it to your mouth. Continue to work your way up toward the crust, cutting off bite-size pieces.

4. Pick it up.

When the pizza has cooled and only a small portion of your slice is left, it is acceptable to pick it up and eat it. There is no need to fold the slice. A folded pizza is known as a calzone – and even that should be eaten with a knife and fork.

5. Repeat.

Pick up the next slice, and repeat with the remaining pizza. Remember, real Italians eat the entire pizza Napoletana.
