If you let it cool a bit before serving that might help. Of course if you like your pizza hot then that will not be a good solution for you. Also it will only help a little. it will not completely solve the problem.

A couple of thoughts....

1) Too much sauce (Did anyone mention that? )
2) Cheese too hot, not set up (Not very likely, but possible)
3) This gets my vote.... Cheese not properly up onto the crust, which basically leaves it "floating" on the sauce (even if there isn't too much sauce)

Probably tastes really nice, but I agree that too much stuff on top or anything that could make it hard to eat is annoying.

Here's another negative reviewer on the same pizza joint, although this person's review is based on a single experience, I assume.
To be fair to this establishment there are over 20 very positive reviews and just 2 negatives, including mine.

The Worst Pizza I've Ever Had!!!

10/23/2006 Posted by ****
I read the raving reviews about this so-called New York style pizza and was really excited to try it. I live about 10 blocks from the restaurant yet it took over an hour to deliver my over-priced pizza when I was quoted a much less wait time. I get the pizza and the crust was soaked and soggy, not thin & crispy as reviewed. The pizza wasn't even warm and the cheese was like plastic and it kept on sliding off the pizza--it wasn't melted ON the pizza at all! It was rather a big glob of hard cheese and toppings. This is hands down the worst pizza I have ever had. Obviously these people who are raving about this pizza have never had pizza! I'll take Dominos anyday over this joint!
Pros: None
Cons: Cold, wet & soggy pizza with hard plastic cheese, overpriced

That's what I would exect from an over-sauced pizza.

That was a very good description from that negative reviewer. My mind immediately flashed back to school pizza when they said "...--it wasn't melted ON the pizza at all! It was rather a big glob of hard cheese and toppings...." The only good thing about that pizza is we were getting pizza in school, which was pretty new at the time.

oven temp too low, too much sauce, poor mix of cheese, and possibly even a poor crust.

One of my fave pizza places puts the cheese down first then runs rings of spicy sauce around the pizza. Works and tastes great! Crust is nice and crispy and the pie is saucy without being runny.
