Leftover pizza: Fridge? Room Temperature?
Posted by: space-time

I have leftover pizza from lunch that I could eat later this evening. Keep it at room temperature? put it in the fridge? I doubt it is worth freezing for 6 hours...

....if it was cooler.....like normal Fall temperature....probably ok to leave out.....if it was summer, wouldn't leave out.....but then you are always taking a chance at 'room temperature'.......to be safe, put in fridge and just heat up in oven late.r....

I have left pizza out a long time, but it's so easy to put in in the fridge.

Anything with meat or cheese should go in the fridge.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Pizza in the fridge will lose moisture even faster.

Warm it in a skillet with a little water and cover it. Heat it slowly.

When the fresh pizza is still warm, take 2 slices and smoosh them together, squishy sides facing inside. Refrigerate, then nuke later. This traps the moisture and reduces dryness. Easy to eat w/o a mess, too.

The clock usually starts officially when the pizza goes below 120 F. Sometimes you can use a non-contact infrared thermometer for this if it has a wide enough range.

Reheating is best, imo, using a cast iron pan (oven but for simplicity we all probably use the stove top) and placing a cover on the pan so the cheese melts. You get a cooked (not soggy) bottom and melted cheese in this way.

what if I keep it in the oven at 125F (and add moisture to prevent drying). How long can I keep it?

Sorry, I thought it was clear you put it in a container like a ziplock bag for the fridge. Not open! Yuck.

Ziploc bag?!! You're kidding right? I have never in my life known anyone to put pizza in a ziploc bag. So each slice goes into its own large gallon size plastic bag? So it doesn't lose moisture? That's a little batsht crazy. LOL

I don't have a zip lock back or Tupperware/similar container big enough for left over pizza, since that would be half a pizza, if I had any sense.

So, no, there's never any left over pizza, at least longer than a day.

There has been a rare occasion were it was lunch and dinner, the closest I've come to using common sense.

If it's a warm day, the pie goes in the fridge, in the box.

In the past it got nuked, but now it goes into the $40 Panasonic toaster over, heated at 325º for five minutes and then "Keep Warm" at 130º for 20min.

Not an exact science because, well because it's pizza, not a soufflé.

And most often, when I smell it's meaty, tomatoy, cheesy goodness, all bets are off.

But it has to survive the first eating, first.

Followed by a brisk 30min walk to burn it off, I'm good.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Not sure what pizza you have, but we will stack thin pizza in layers to go into the ziplock bag. Or, we have re-usable larger containers with lids we can use. It's harder with deep dish, but day-old deep dish also tastes great (cold or re-heated) as it's more like a casserole.

I think most people are more likely to just slide the pizza box with the leftovers into the fridge.

It’s pizza! Leave it out for a week, scrape off any mold and you’re good, heated or not.
