When eating left over pizza, do you like it best hot or cold?

Asked by nightwolf5 (2347points) February 12th, 2020

Do you prefer to eat it cold or heat it up? I usually heat it up, but I know a lot of people like it better cold.

Hot. Red hot.

Wrapped in butter oiled foil, heated for 20 minutes at 350 and it is SO GOOD. The crust is crustier and the mozzerella has melted into the pineapple. Slurp!

It depends on my mood and if I am in a hurry or not. I’ll only turn down pizza if it has anchovies or pineapple on it.

Up with pineapple.

I just nuke it, no special gimmicks, but I do prefer to add a little fresh cheese, since it seems to lose something after having been cooked then cooled. Still, if for some reason cold is all there is available, fold and devour.

@Dutch you are wrong. :D (love ya)

hot, or at least warm. Cold pizza is not tasty. The meats (usually pepperoni) need heat to smell and taste right.

Hot or cold. There is no wrong way to eat pizza.

Frying pan with a tight lid, Put slice in on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Crust gets crispy and cheese melts !

I like my pizza like I like my mailman. Hot.

@lucillelucillelucille interesting thought. My mailman is about 55 and grey, Hard to believe he can pick up a heavy box.

Mail people are known as the beasts of service people.XD

I like my pizza like I like my women.
Hot, spicy & round…ok so maybe not that last part!

Another use for it is to scrape the toppings into scrambled eggs. Really good!

When I was young, I preferred it cold because we had no real way of heating it up effectively to retain the flavor. Over the years, I’ve learned how to heat it so it comes out almost good as new, so now I prefer to warm it before eating it!!!

Great answers all. I never thought of heating it up in a frying pan!

Depends on the pizza. Thin crust I prefer right out of the fridge. But with a more bready crust I like to warm it up a but so my gums don’t bleed.
