Pizza is a favorite American pastime. While it can be incredibly appetizing to pile the toppings high, how much is really too much on the toppings? Some like peperoni, others like cheese, while others pile it full of everything. There really is no right or wrong way to make a pizza, but it can certainly make it more difficult to eat.
For example, cheese, cheese and extra cheese is always a popular option. However, when placing too much cheese on a pizza it can become a choking hazard. Another problem with topping over load, especially cheese, is that the entire toppings come off at once and leave a naked piece of crust.
A slice of pizza that has topping overload can also be more difficult to eat. All those toppings can cause a crust to be soggy and virtually impossible to eat. The whole design behind the perfect piece of pizza is that it be easy to handle and not require a fork. Eating pizza with a fork is just not the way it was intended to be eaten.
When it comes to toppings, no more than 2-3 is sufficient. This will allow the pizza to maintain its shape and give one a decent shot for leaving some toppings on after the first bite.
