TikTok’s pizza hack is all about stealing a piece of a pie without anyone knowing.

We can all agree that ordering a pizza pie comes with the assurance that you’ll be able to enjoy it in its entirety. But, the latest pizza hack on TikTok has left food lovers questioning if they've been a victim of food theft.

This hack was started by TikToker Lonely Pepperoni, per HITC. In the now-deleted video, the creator shares how chefs can use a pizza slicer to cut up a pie.

But, in the midst of slicing up the pie, the chef strategically cuts the pizza down the middle and again in a slight diagonal shape. The goal is for the chef to cut a sliver of the pie and cut the remaining pizza into eight pieces.

“Doordash drivers everywhere thank you for this information,” one user commented.

“How Chucky Cheese makes all their pizza,” another user commented.

On the flip side, some users have been defending the hack. HITC reports that in the comment section of the original video, users shared that the chef had a reason to cut the pizza that way.

“That pie was too large to fit into that box until that slice was cut out,” a user commented. “Then it fit perfectly.”

The jury is still out on the reason for the TikTok pizza hack, but there is a way for everyone to see if they are a victim of pizza theft.

An easy way to tell if your chef removed a slice of your pizza pie is to simply see if your pizza is perfectly aligned. If the pizza pie looks uneven or the slices are mismatched, a piece of your pizza may very well have been stolen.
