sending pizza back

Here's a variation I don't think I've ever seen: is it reasonable to send a pizza back if it's underdone to your taste?

At dinner last night in a moderately upscale restaurant I ordered the pizzetta (for one), and when it came it was what someone in a recent pizza thread called "California blonde." Not being sure what the protocol for sending a pizza back was, and not wanting to make a production at a family dinner, I suffered through it. But it definitely would have been much improved by a couple more minutes in the oven.

Has anyone ever sent a pizza back? Is there a way to do it without seeming unreasonable?
