What happens when you drop a piece of pizza on your carpet? ...You iron it, of course.

Carpet expert Bahram Shabahang of design house Orley Shabahang tipped us off to the above trick. It involves layering paper towels on top of the stain and ironing the surface until the stain lifts out in the most impressive way possible.
