Call it the great "take 'n' bake" pizza sales tax dilemma.
States are grappling with whether sales taxes should be charged for pizzas and other food assembled uncooked in restaurants and sold to consumers who then cook it at home. Virginia already charges a lower sales tax on groceries. Thirty-two states and DC don't tax food purchased in supermarkets and five states don't have sales taxes at all.
