I don't, except for the walk-up pizza joints in Manhattan. The slices are big and greasy and you have to fold them to keep stuff from sliding off.
This. The NYC style slices are big, thin, and not being crispy, they get floppy so if you want to be able to eat it with one hand, you pretty much have to fold it. From there it just kind of becomes a habit.

Just curious as to what the consensus is. when I eat a pizza slice, I do not fold it over. Yet, some do.
To me it's all about whether it's drippy or sloppy....it's an OCD thing I suppose. LOL In general - if it's cool or cold - no. If it's hot or warm - probably - or worse I'll eat it with a fork and knife till it's cool or cold. There was one pizza I loved from Vince and Dominics here in Bethesda - their calling card was the lunch slices (gargantuan) and the crust was amazing. Crispy and tender at the same time albeit still thin - every bite was incredible. Best of all - it was rigid so you could pick it up (it took 2 hands to support it) and no runs/drips/errors. Sadly they are out of business after 2 owners and about 30 years.
When I used to eat a lot of pizza in college - I would order a pie that was hot - and then just let it sit for hours letting it get cold before I ate it.
Pizza...? I always feed myself pizza as is comes off the plate - pie shaped.
As an aside, I went through elementary and high school with the son (Rick) of perhaps a U.S top ten Pizza "Parlor"
Often times when Rick and I got off the train from school, his Mom would serve us up a late afternoon treat.
If you are ever in New Haven, CT stop by Sally's Apizza. This is a safe link - sallysapizza.com/index.html In my late 20's I would stop in for a Pie and Mrs.Consiglio (Sally's wife/Ricks mother) would stop by our table, pinch my cheek giving me a big a Joe Biden hug. ;-)
