Pizzagate is the latest tin-foil hat conspiracy theory that originated from the John Podesta emails released by Wikileaks during the 2016 presidential campaign. Reddit and 4chan saw something diabolical in the discussion of a lost handkerchief and whether Podesta's friend thinks he will do better playing dominos on cheese rather than on pasta.

"map" = semen
"sauce" = orgy
They came up with this nonsense explanation for why would someone have a "pizza-related map" on a handkerchief. "Map" is commonly used as slang for any sort of residual DNA evidence, i.e. forensics investigators have used that term. Realtor is the "cleaner," aka someone who makes sure there is no evidence of the crime.
