Eating Styles: Pizza Grease Edition! Sam January 14, 2013 Eating Styles, Pizza 7 Comments It’s Monday, meaning it’s time for another Eating Styles post. My friend once claimed that pizza grease was the best part of a pizza, then licked the shiny residue straight off his plate to prove it. He pulled this bold move in protest after he saw me soaking up my pizza grease with a napkin, something I always do out of habit ever since I read that it decreases the fat by 80 percent.

Reply Not-so-famous Dave January 14th, 2013 I tend to overload mine with pepperoni and other greasy meats, so I do. I heard a lettuce leaf dredged across the top will pull grease off as well…have not tried that. Reply Teddy Izzo January 14th, 2013 I haven’t been doing it as of late but when I come across a particularly greasy pizza, it needs to be dealt with. I’d like to be able to eat my pizza without all my arteries clogging. Reply incognito January 15th, 2013 I do, especially if the pepperoni has little swimming pools of grease in them, not so much the cheese though.. Reply Alex January 16th, 2013 I mostly just soak up the pools of oil with a tip of the napkin. Straight blotting kind of ruins the pizza cause you end up picking up some sauce while you’re at it. Reply Geena Stepp January 18th, 2013 yes yes yes. the grease doesn’t make the pizza taste any different, yet if it’s not there you are consuming wayyyy less fat. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t do it! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
