The latest pizza news to upset you? Apparently you've been holding it wrong your entire life. 

Daniel Young, a pizza expert who studied under Naples pizza legend Enzo Coccia has said that holding a slice by the crust means all the toppings slide into a cheesy mess on the plate leaving you holding some disappointing tomato bread.  He explains that instead you should eat it, "Folded twice upon itself like a wallet," because, "Neapolitan pizza was eaten on the street."
