I must admit, I tend to do that too (bolus a couple of hours later). Mainly 
because I can never predict what will happen.
Occasionally I do use it when I know I'm not going to eat more later. The only 
snag with taking more insulin later is that I tend to forget! With a square 
wave it's all done.

I'm the same with pizza. I can sometimes get absolutely perfect results after 
pizza, just with a normal bolus.
And sometimes my BG goes mad. So I rarely eat it. I don't like well done 
pasta, but I don't really have a problem with pasta. Chinese usually needs 
more insulin later. Indian sometimes does and sometimes doesn't. My reaction 
to food tends to be based I think on what my BGs have been like during the 
day, how much exercise I've done etc, as much as anything else.
