    I am eating pizza vs. I am eating a pizza.

    'Pizza' is a countable/uncoutable noun.

    When we are saying 'I am eating pizza', is pizza an uncountable noun here?

    Does it sound natural to say 'I am eating a pizza' or 'I am eating a slice of pizza'?

    Thanks.

    Re: I am eating pizza vs. I am eating a pizza.

    You can just say "I'm having pizza."

    Some pizzas are "personal sized" and you can eat a pizza. If it's a large pizza where we usually have a slice or two, then you can eat a slice of pizza.

    They're all okay.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
