Do You Blot Your Pizza Before You Eat?

Pizza is one of my weaknesses, and I definitely indulge in it once in a while. Some slices are especially greasy, and I can't stand it when I take a bite and oil drips onto my plate —or pants! So I've gotten into the habit of blotting my pizza. I feel this makes it a bit healthier. What about you?

Sometimes I do, I hate the feeling of the grease all over my mouth.

If any food is too greasy to me stop eating it or I try to blot away the grease as much as possible.

I dont' blot unles sit's disgusting, but w/ pepperoni, it's a lost cause to blot... it's yummy tho.

I only blot if the grease is pooling and about to drip, not because I don't want to eat oil, but because I perpetually get food stains on my clothes!

Pizza Hut is the worst because they oil the pans so much the dough is basically fried instead of baked... Half the time the bottom of it needs blotting more than the cheesy part!

I should also say that slice of pizza in the photo is effing gargantuan! Man that one slice could feed two people!

I don't usually eat greasy or oily foods, but I blot when I do. I can't stand grease! It's so gross!

on the rare occasion i do eat pizza, i use up several napkins to ensure that my slice is as dry and chewy as can be with no oily crap all over it!

Hee. At least it's a different picture this time. Usually the pizza blotting posts feature that very smiley girl. (Clearly I've spent far too many hours procrastinating on FitSugar over the last couple of years!) To be honest, I don't think I've ever had a pizza that was so greasy you would need to blot it. Most pizzas I've eaten in restaurants in NZ are pretty fresh and crisp tasting.

I'm not big on pizza. It's just not that appealing to me. When I do eat it, I order it with half the cheese, extra veggies and sauce on a thin-crust, so I don't have to blot much fat off. When my husband eats pizza, he always makes pepperoni and eats the entire thing, grease and all.

I think that is disgusting. All my friends used to do it in high school. First of all, how clean is that napkin really? And second, if you don't want grease, eat something else.

Sometimes, you have to blot. The slice just has a pool of greese on it, how can you consciously eat that?

Crazy, I never even thought of blotting pizza! I do let the grease drip before eating when there are pools of cheese fat, but I know that pizza isn't the healthiest meal in the world, so I don't fool myself thinking that would make it healthier. I just enjoy it and try not to eat pizza too often.
