Do people outside the NY-NJ-PA area really not fold their pizza?

Here, we pick up a slice of pizza, fold it and then bite it. I always assumed that's how everyone eats pizza b/c that's how I was taught as a baby.

The other day this woman told me that no one eats it that way outside this area. I have been other places, but wasn't exactly staring at people dining lol.

If you don't fold it, how do you eat it? I don't get it.

New York style pizza is the one that gets folded and I can't stand them. I like a deep dish pizza so deep that you have to eat it with a fork on a plate. Over cooked cheddar cheese on a thin cardboard like crust can stay in New York as far as I care.
Yellow cheese and tomato sauce is about as authentic on a pizza as hamburger and sour-cream is on a taco, yuk !

Umm... I just pick it up and eat it? (Actually, because I'm weird, I pick off all of the toppings and eat them first and then eat the crust, but I don't fold it.) I don't think most people I know fold their pizza, but then again, I have never really noticed how people eat their pizza.

The only pizza folders I know are from NY and NJ. I live next door in CT and I don't fold my pizza. Many of my friends in college were from NJ and most of them were pizza folders!

Picking it up and folding it is the only way to eat NY style pizza. It always astonishes me when I see people eating it with a fork & knife!

That likely has some play into why people outside of the NY-style pizza zone eat theirs differently- the pizza is different! Pizza that I eat has a thick enough crust that I don't have to fold it- it keeps it's triangular shape even when lifted, without being flimsy in the NY-style kind of way...

I have never, ever, ever heard of cheddar cheese on pizza anywhere in the tri-state area...

Thinking about it, even slices that keep the shape, would normally be too wide for my mouth if I didn't fold it.

Although, I guess times I have eaten Dominoes, those slices are small so I can see that working out, but I think I attempt to fold it as habit lol.

That's what I was wondering. Since when does ANYONE put yellow cheese on pizza? Certainly not here, hopefully not anywhere!
