HEAT?  Goodbye to a couple of options.  Any surface finish is likely to blister up, and shellac melts and flows below pizza temps.  Pretty much limits you to curing oils, and when I say cure, means a bunch of time.  When I did my first popcorn bowls, the old maids taught me to use a penetrating, curing "finish" only.  

My Pizza cutting board is about fifteen years old now.  Walnut oil still allows the wipe-with water to be dried off without serious penetration.
Better to follow the leader than the pack. Less to step in.

Yeah I missed the pizza comment. Hot-out-of-the-oven pizza probably wouldn't be good for any of my suggestions.

But yeah, resolidified cheese in wormholes? Good luck, man. lol

What about an inlay of glass? If it's regular, non-tempered glass it can be shaped to about any contour.
