Although, pizza looks like a dish that is easy to eat, it is not that simple. It sounds funny, but pizza has a whole set of rules and norms for eating it.

Let's start with the preparation, the selection of fresh and natural ingredients is very important and is the core of the delicious taste and presentation of pizza. After the pizza is done it is cut with a special tool called pizza wheel. Don’t worry if you are at home and you don´t have it, because a sharp knife works as well.

The traditional or the right way to serve pizza is with a triangular cut because most of the pizzas are round. But there are some restaurants in Italy prepare a rectangle pizzas and the shape of the cut is rectangle as well.

It is a non-spoken general rule to eat with your hands. Some places serve it with a piece of cardboard in the same shape of the slice of your pizza, which will prevent you from burning or getting your hands dirty. There are also restaurants where some people eat pizza with silverware (knife and fork) to avoid spilling or burning, but for the true pizza enthusiast this is considered bad etiquette.

Don´t forget that you should keep your pizza leftovers in the fridge. If they don´t have any meat or fish on it, they will keep for one or two days. If the pizza has any type of meat in it, they should be consumed in no more than half a day after its preparation to avoid any complications.

Take your time to enjoy eating pizza and savor its flavor and its ingredients. It is absolutely a superb eating experience.
