Hi Ann,

You cannot say -

La pizza dont tu manges ...

The verb manger is followed by a direct object, so it will be -

la pizza que tu manges ...

But if you said -

La pizza dont tu parles ...

dont would be correct because the verb is -

The thing that confused me is that we say manger de la pizza and I reasoned dont is used in such instances where de is used. In manges de la pizza, de la means some whereas in parle de it means of making pizza an object of a preposition. Is that the difference?
