Slow down, take small bites, and enjoy life/pizza
Now I know New Yorkers out there will say that part of the fold is based on eating cheap food on the go, and like how water and ice are both still H20, a folded slice is still pizza. And perhaps pizza architects put half as much cheese/sauce/topping on their pies because they know the crease is coming. And of course a skilled folder knows to let that grease slip & slide drip onto a plate or napkin or rat-infested gutter.
But those arguments are all DiGiorno. My reasons are delivery.
What I'm saying here is that pizza has given so much joy, it shouldn't be treated like a second-class satiation injection compressed into the most effectively consumed shape. Next time you hold 'em, just don't fold 'em.
