I operate a pizza slice joint, definitely finger food. I laugh when I see people grab fork or knife, if it's too hot then give it a sec.

you have to eat pizza as if you were a pirate! Let the melted cheese hang down your chin and the grease dribble down your arm...and say "Arrr" before each savage bite.

Depends on the pizza. Regular pizza, sure, finger food.

I'd like to see you eat one of these with your bare hands, though:

Gino's East has a hard crust, you can eat the slices with just your hands.

Finger food, no doubt. We were at a fancy shmancy place once and they had pizza on the menu, not only was it really, really bad, but they served it with silverware! We bagged it and went to OutBack The dogs ate it though.

It was a joke. I know exactly what it is.

It's a bad take on a great food!

"If it's too hot, give it a sec"?

That would require restraint, which I have none of when it comes to a proper Chicago pizza. I dig in immediately with a fork and knife.

pizza, fried chicken and ribs are meant to be eaten with bare hands and cold beer.

I use a fork to lift the top layer of cheese a bit and let some steam out. Then I eat it with my hands.

I've done that. I prefer using my fingers though since I am lazy.

I have used chopsticks for a lot of "finger" foods like McDonald's McNuggets before...

depends on the pizza...

if the toppings consist of: tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, pepperoni, mushrooms, real bacon slices, olives, cheese and the dough is crispy thin, then fork and knife is better since the pizza is too unstable to hold with the hand.

if on the other hand it's just a regular chain store pepperoni, cheese, bell pepper, mushroom with regular dough, aka: deluxe, then only hands should suffice.
