Should I blot my pizza to reduce its calories?

In answer to a question …  Yes you definitely can, but it’s really difficult to know how many calories you’re saving.  That liquid you’re removing may just be moisture from the cooking process, and if it’s indeed oil, it’s not possible to easily determine how many calories you’re removing.

To remove 150 calories per slice in a much more sure way, and improve the overall healthfulness of your pizza, just skip the meat entirely.

If you’re making pizza for yourself, you’ve got additional options; you can make the pizza more authentically Italian by foregoing much of the cheese and going for a thinner crust which will bubble up in a really tasty way.  Yes it does take more time and effort than just picking up the phone, but that’s part of the deal, you do want to shift your emphasis toward spending more time making real food.
