Eating pizza with a fork

Do you eat pizza with a fork? I don’t. When I was in the Navy, and traveled abroad I found that many Europeans opted to eat French fries (chips) with a fork. I found it odd. I chalked it up as foreign culture.

I experienced a foot-in-mouth moment this last weekend when I was out of town visiting with friends of family, and they made pizza the night I arrived. As dinner was being served, I was asked if I wanted a fork for my pizza. I replied “No thanks, I’m American.” Well, needless to say, I felt like an ass when she told me that she uses a fork with pizza. I mentioned my experience with Europeans eating fries with forks and she replied she also uses a fork with French Fries.

Have I been too blind to notice how many people around me use forks for “finger foods”?
