I purchased inexpensive white washcloths and set them at each person's place. If not soiled, they can be used for another meal. To keep separated, clip with a labeled clothes pin. They are more absorbent, bigger, and add little to the laundry load. I haven't purchased paper napkins in ages.

When eating pizza I have found that taking clean paper napkins and gently blotting the top of your pizza will wick up a fair amount of oils . The last time I had pizza at our favorite place I used 3 napkins on an 8 inch square pizza. I figure any oil I take off the top of my pizza is that much less oil that I am not taking in.
Use white cotton napkins instead of paper napkins. They're easy to wash, and can be bleached if required. They don't have to be washed every single day. We each have a different napkin ring so we know which one is ours.
