Yes I always fold my slice when I eat pizza! I find it hard to eat pizza unfolded, it’s too big to fit into my mouth! I have done it in front of out-of-towners and they told me it’s a New York thing.June 14, 2013 1:55 am at 1:55 am #958893SecularFrummyMember
Being that “Chicago” stlye pizza isn’t very conducive to folding, I would say it is a “New York” style pizza thing…June 14, 2013 2:06 am at 2:06 am #958894dabeenMember
I’m “out of town” and I’ve seen people do it.June 14, 2013 2:09 am at 2:09 am #958895sharpMember
No I never do.
I often ask them to cut it into pieces for me, but not always.June 14, 2013 2:11 am at 2:11 am #958896

And no, i wouldn’t think of folding pizza.June 14, 2013 2:17 am at 2:17 am #958898DaMosheParticipant
It depends if I have a plain slice or one with toppings. If it’s plain, then yes, I fold it. If there are toppings, I find that folding it makes the toppings fall off, so I keep it straight.June 14, 2013 2:43 am at 2:43 am #958899kkls45Member
No. I use a fork and knife.June 14, 2013 2:56 am at 2:56 am #958900amichaiParticipant

I eat it halfway and then when its mostly crust, I put fries in it and fold it.June 14, 2013 3:51 am at 3:51 am #958902EnderParticipant
During the week I fold it carefully down the middle, but on shabbos I just roll it up into a ball and shove it in.June 14, 2013 4:31 am at 4:31 am #958903popa_bar_abbaParticipant

dafyomi-Yes I wash and bench even on one slice, but I hardly ever meet anybody else who does, and every time I tell somebody that I wash on pizza they think I am crazy.June 14, 2013 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #958911oomisParticipant
Always – it just tastes better to me, that way.June 14, 2013 10:45 pm at 10:45 pm #958912jewishfeminist02Member
I don’t, but my father a”h used to. And I don’t think it’s a New York thing because he grew up in Chicago.June 15, 2013 12:24 am at 12:24 am #958913
