This technique is particularly effective with the greasy-crusted pan pizza beloved of the major chains -- with a home-made pizza with a crisper crust, you might not notice the impact. And while the strategy isn't going to make pizza the healthiest meal option, getting rid of the excess fat certainly can't hurt, especially at this time of year.
