Mouth burn due to hot foods (such as pizza)
What is it? Your pizza arrives, you're hungry and it smells good. You take out the first piece, take a big bite..... And burn the roof of your mouth. Now you have pizza palate!
Other hot foods can also burn the roof of your mouth. These types of burns have come to be called "pizza palate" because they are most commonly caused by pizza.
These burns are usually minor and heal within a few days. Warm salt water rinses after meals will help keep the area clean. To make the rinse, dissolve 1/8 tsp of salt in 8 ounces of water.
