Do You Blot Your Pizza?

Last week we dished about comfort foods, and I must say that pizza is one of mine. It must be since I love cheese. One way I make my pizza a bit healthier is to blot the grease off the top. If this makes me a health food nut, so be it.

But what about you . . .

You left off the option "I don't eat pizza". The only time I ever eat it, I make it with no cheese or meat, so there is no grease on it at all.

I've honestly never had a pizza that had puddles or grease or dripping grease on it. If I did, I would blot. But like a few readers have said before, pizza should be a little greasy. And if I'm splurging on pizza, why not enjoy it all?

I like Pizza, but I cut them into really small bites so I can eat them piece by piece with my fork! I love eating pizza with iced pepsi or coke. How unhealthy is that... Next time, I'd eat it with some cold orange juice.

ditto fleurfairy. I mean if the pizza starts dripping orange grease the minute you pick it up it's probably not good pizza anyways and I wouldn't be buying it in the first place.

Not sure if eating a semi-greasy pizza makes you a health food nut! ;)

Depends. I really like white pizza & it never is overly greasy - so I don't really worry too much about it. If someone orders pepperoni pizza, I'm not a big fan, so I take the pepperoni's off & blot.

When it's so greasy I can practically see my reflection in it, then yes.

i do that to hamburgers. but pizza grease is from cheese and if you buy the healthy one than the fat is healthy as well. It's from the cow :) so i don't mind, besides i eat pizza rarely. but i had a hamburger (homemade) today and will have two tomorrow :D

If I can see puddles of grease, I blot.

I only blot if it's crazy greasy. I like a comfortable medium between sopping and creepily dry. Pizza is supposed to have a slight sheen, right??

I used to make fun of my mom for doing so, but I have now started taking the cheese off my pizza. I know, I know....what's pizza without the cheese? I happen to love the bread and tomato sauce combo, so as much as I love the cheese, I'll sacrifice so I can have a few more slices.

I always blot the life out of my pizza. Where I live, the pizza is exceptionally greasy!

I don't eat pizza. I avoid cheese.

I do because I don't think the grease really affects the taste of the pizza that much, so I may as well get rid of it!

Never really thought about it. I usually eat hand tossed crust instead of pan, so it's not so bad.

I've blotted ever since having my gallbladder removed. Too much grease and I end up getting sick.

Good quality authentic pizzas never have an excess of grease. I should know, I come from the capital of Italian-America.

h to the no! i mean if we're talking about actual little puddles of grease, I'll blot them off. But if it's just a normal amount, say a nice 'grease gloss' if you will, lay it on me. mmmmmmmm.

I don't blot my pizza because vegan pizza rarely has grease (at least the kind I have doesn't)

I wonder, does that actually help? How many calories does it really save?
