How often do you weigh yourself? When you load creatine, it will cause a water-gain within a pretty short amount of time. It's not a side-effect of creatine, that's what it does. Also, the fact that you ate a pizza I'm sure has something to do with it. Some of it is probably still sitting on you.

It could be from both. You are loading as well.
