Drew Barrymore posted a TikTok video last Wednesday with a pizza-related life hack. This has left her followers in a frenzy. She showed how she can sometimes enjoy pizza toppings without having to eat the bread underneath. She showed her technique, which she called “a pizza salad.”
Barrymore was looking at a takeout pizza box. In the video, Barrymore wears a tee and seems to be having a relaxed night in. As she was preparing a paper plate, Barrymore explained her reasoning. After grabbing a slice of pizza, she used a fork to scrape the toppings, cheese and sauce onto the salad. She also tossed the bread. Barrymore mixed up the dressing and then ate.

Many commenteders believed this was a trick to alter body composition. They had some good takes.
“Drew, I’m filing a lawsuit on behalf of pizza,” wrote comedian Mike Birbiglia. Another commenter suggested that Barrymore should be expelled “straight to prison”Several felt that the actress was too young to be in this video. “onto something.”
Barrymore’s video is now making waves on social media, having escaped TikTok. Here’s how the viral response played out.
I was looking at a Buzzfeed headline about people’s opinions on Drew Barrymore eating pizza. Because it sounds so stupid, I didn’t think that I’d be interested. It turns out, Drew Barrymore’s diet of pizza is something I am deeply interested in.

Reinventing the Wheel
Don’t worry, I was not aware of it. The consensus seems to be, why ruin a pizza? It’s better to eat antipasto salad. Do they need to be hot? Is marinara sauce an acceptable dressing? There are too many questions to answer this dilemma.
