I was out for meal tonight at Pizza Express and was sturggling to cut my pizza into small pieces, so I cut it into slices and ate it with my fingers. No-one gave me any weird looks but everyone else in the restaurant was using their knife and fork!

Do you think it's ok to eat Pizza with your fingers when you're out?! I wasnt like getting in a mess with it and was eating it daintly! lol

Were you drinking beer at the same time? Consider this carefully. It can affect the answer.

It's just wrong, Pizza's meant to be eaten using your hands.

I've always felt the urge to cut pizza without using knives and forks at Pizza Express, but i conform.

eating pizza with your hands is perfectly acceptable, using a knife and fork tends to look a bit pretentious.

I ate pizza today in Est Est Est with a knife and fork. They serve those weird thin things though and they aren't pre-cut so its the order of the day to use cutlery. Pizza with fingers is sooo post-booze-up!
Or take-away?

Pizza is not a classy food, it doesn't matter where it's served the content doesn't change. Use the hands.

Pizza is surpassed only by a rack of ribs as the food hardest to eat manually without getting yourself in a complete mess.
I take it you haven't tried eating soup using your hands.

I do agree, but I think you have to look deeper to see why this is. Pizza Express pizza is very thin and therefore difficult to eat with your hands. It goes all floppy and falls apart. On the other hand less traditional, Americanised pizzas, such as those found in Pizza Hut, have a more rigid base, and are therefore ideal to cut into slices and eat with your hands.

are you people all dizzy?

hands - either cut up the pizza into small bits or fold it in half (thin base remember) and the rigidity will keep it straight.

But once you've cut it up into small pieces you might as well just use your knife and fork! :rolleyes:

I think you should calm down Bono - but the unspoken/unwritten rule in Pizza Express is you must use your knives and forks to eat/cut your pizza.

Well that's stupid. Pizza was made to be eaten with hands, it's how it is.

Lol, yes it is! Their pizzas keep getting smaller and their prices keep going up! It's not very fair, although I have to admit I've jumped ship to Ask (they do a really nice banoffee pie).
