Reddit Pizza Delivery Trick Changes How We Order Pies Forever

Posted: Updated:

Tired of your pizza toppings sliding around when you order delivery? We are so pleased to report that Reddit user Oderdigg has a pizza delivery trick for you: ask them to refrain from cutting your pizza into slices.

Why on earth would you ever want to order pizza uncut? Oderdigg explains the method to his madness:

The reason is because when you cook a pizza, the water in each ingredient rises to the top of the pizza and forms a pool of water. The amount of water depends on the type and quantity of ingredients so ingredients like shrimp, pineapple and most meats will have the most water content. When they cut it right after cooking, the water goes into the cuts and the crust absorbs the water making the toppings slide when you take a slice. If you wait until the pizza is at home and in one piece, the water has time to evaporate. Now when you cut it, there is no water and the toppings stay put and everything tastes better because it's not watered down.

Is the exact science behind this idea correct? We definitely have no idea. But if you've got a pizza wheel handy, it seems crazy not to try it out, right?
