My friend is going on a date and thinks she'll be made fun off if she uses a fork to eat her pizza. I think it won't be an issue.

What do you all think? Is it wrong to eat pizza with a fork?

    If you NEED to use a fork, it's not pizza, it's pizza-reminiscint

    I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten pizza with a fork and knife. Although if I had to, I guess I would. But what reason would I have too?

    It seems like it would be better to start with your hands because you can always fork with it later.

    If you are desperate for pizza and you microwave a mini pizza and it's all soggy but you don't care...use a knife and fork...otherwise it might fall apart when you pick it up, and will probably drip burning hot sauce and cheese on you, at very least onto your white shirt and stain it

    ...yep...I've been that desperate

    It's not wrong, but it's weird (if it's a "real" pizza) not a microwaved monstrosity

    Not at all weird.

    Might be considered weird in some cultures in some contexts among people of some social classes. Seems kind of unimportant.

    I use a fork for the first few bites if the pizza is loaded with toppings. It’s easier than dropping toppings onto my shirt when the crust tip droops.

    I use a fork for pizza when I go to Pizza Hut because I have salad on the plate with it, so if Im using a fork for the other things on my plate then makes sense to use it for the pizza too.

    I'd eat Chicago stuffed pizza with a fork if I absolutely had to eat that pile of garbage.

    Sometimes you (at least, I) downright have to fork it, especially if oven-fresh/too hot to touch.

    First instinct would be to pick it up, that said, if its a date I'd be guided by my surroundings. Cloth napkin and white tablecloth, I'm going with the knife and fork

    If a proper pizza then I tend to have to use a fork the middle is gooey and thin and doesn't hold particularly well unless you fold the slice, which I don't like doing as I find it doesn't last as long! :)
