Pizza toppings from Echo Park restaurant keep sliding off

Is it the sauce? Whether you eat in or take out, the pizzas from this one particualr Italian restaurant always turns out messy. Don't get me wrong. I like messy pizzas. But their pizzas are messy in a frustrating way. Slices are almost impossible to separate without pulling the topping off the rest of the pizza. If you tilt the pizza the toppings will slide off.
While dining there one evening I even heard the waitress tell one take out patron not to tilt the box.
What's happening here? As far as I can remember, they've always served their pizzas this way. Locals rave about their pizzas. I don't get it.

        i don't remember having that problem with them before and we have ordered from them many times. we also order from hard times, and more often, so maybe i am just no remembering.

    2. It has to be from putting the sauce and the cheese on in the wrong order. If you don't do it right, it seems like the sauce would act as a lubricant and let everything else slide right off the crust

        If that's the case then I don't understand why they continue to serve pizzas in this manner...
