In response to a Reddit post about the Papa John’s delivery in the above photo (which appears to be a Cinnapie and not a traditional pizza), one reader offers this easy suggestion:
As a former pizza delivery guy, I can confirm that toppings falling off a pizza is pretty common if the pizza isn’t allowed to sit for atleast a minute or two before put into the car. Whether the pizza is in an insulated bag or not, 90% of the time it’s put on a car seat, which is slanted so all that cheese just slippery slides the fuck right off that pizza bitch. That’s why I used to put a bottle in the nook of the seat, under the pizza, to keep the boxes level.
Meanwhile, a second reader who claims to manage a pizzeria in Buffalo says his drivers use a piece of 2×4 lumber to prop up the pizza boxes and prevent the unwanted sloshing around that can occur.
Either way, the idea is the same — just keep something small and inexpensive in your car so you can make up for the slope of the seat. It can be a crushed bottle, a block of wood, an old towel, get creative!
