Okay so first of all, yes there is apparently such thing as a pizza expert. Trusted food writer Daniel Young caught up with renowned pizza consultant Enzo Coccia (srsly, he’s like the king of pizza) and he said the problems with our pizza-eating start before we even take the first bite.

“The mistake everyone makes is holding the pizza by the crust,” Young told Manchester Evening News. “That’s not to say you should grab it by the cheese-strings, but if you try to lift Neapolitan pizza by the crust the topping will slide off and you’ll be left with a soggy, sorry-looking piece of dough.”

Whattttt, the crust is made for holding! Isn't it!?

BUT WAIT. There’s another rule.

Young goes on to advise the pizza-consuming population that pizza isn’t meant to be sliced and adds that we should fold it before biting into it. Why? “Because Neapolitan pizza was eaten on the street, folded twice upon itself like a wallet,” he said.

Ok, we're not sure we can abide by these rules, though...
