Are you sure its just pizza because i rekon anything would burn your mouth. Maybe it is because the pizza is ready to eat out of the oven and so you eat it before it has time to cool?

Maybe the very top portion of a pizza the part just below the skin is super heated, maybe the skin traps and collects the rising heat from the rest of the pizza. and as you bite in you release this heat onto the roof of your mouth. Maybe:)

I would think there is different heat capacity for different foods.  Very possibly, pizza (and probably other bread based foods) have a particularly high heat capacity.

Do you have an Anti-Pizza device inside your mouth ?

I'm going to theorize that you really really love pizza and that you devour it the best way by grabbing it with your hand instead of a knife and fork. If so, then I speculate that there is a tendency when eating pizza this way to shove it far into the mouth, therefore a nice chunk is resting on your tongue when you bite it, and it then rises up to hit the roof of your mouth and then burns it giving you flappy loose skinny joy !!......that's my theory.....whajafink ?

Do you also scoff your pizza ?...do you relish your pizza ?..Perhaps you also enjoy large bites !!..this fills the mouth and therefore can also hit the roof of mouth !!.......and is it steaming ?..is it oozing delicious pepperoni ?...well, they're on top ?..they are hot !!


I also find really hot drinks do it...especially hot chocolate which must be slurped constantly !!

Anyway, hope you enjoyed your pizza.......

I'm so hungry right now !!

quite often this happens because of the oil that come to the top during cooking especially in thing like pizzas where theres lots of oil (from the cheese ) and the surface does not allow it to drain away

wow...i honestly cannot agree with you more on this one!

(except of course for coffee; it usually burns the roof of my mouth and my tongue..because I gulp it down not matter how hot)

but use a fork and knife to eat the pizza...and it never burns!

HM Queen Elizabeth went to visit a new hospital in Scotland.

In the first ward, the first patient greeted HM with:
"Oh wad some power the giftie gie us
To see oursel's as others see us!
It wad frae monie a blunder free us,
And foolish notion."

At the next bed, the second patient said to The Queen:
"The best laid schemes o' mice and men
Gang aft a-gley;
And leave us naught but grief and pain
For promised joy."

Moving on to the third bed, HM was amazed to hear:
"Man's inhumanity to man
Makes countless thousands mourn."

So the Queen turned and asked the Chief Medical Officer if it was a psychiatric unit.

"No Ma'am," he replied, "It's our Burns Unit...."
