🍕 Pizza purchasing and storage tips 🍕 (self.just_eate)
submitted 4 months ago* by hoppet🍕🍣🍛🌯🧀🍔🍜🍵🍪
Always get the largest pizza you can if you can afford it, assuming your pizza place doesn't have like a novelty mega-size. If you do the math you can spend as low as half as much per square inch of pizza than with the next size down
Store uneaten pizza in the fridge or freezer with ziplock bags. If it's not too expensive, use one bag per single serving, whatever that means to you. Suck the air out of the bag as well as you can. The best time to bag a pizza is while it's still warm, as after putting it in storage the remaining air you couldn't suck out will contract, creating a nicely sealed bag of pizza.
If frozen, reheat the pizza in the oven for about 10-15 minutes (depends on the pizza) at 375. Or you can reheat it on a george foreman grill. OR let it thaw for a few hours in the fridge then microwave. I personally don't have a ton of luck microwaving directly from the freezer without making the crust unpleasant and tough.
If you reheat pizza in the oven you may benefit from covering the crust in foil, unless you want it real crispy. If you like to bend the crust while eating pizza this will probably be necessary.
Basil and spinach will get all black and wilty after being frozen or refrigerated, but they won't hurt you and they taste ok.
EDIT: Also important point by razzle COLD PIZZA IS AMAZING

v solid post, 10/10
esp the bit about storing the pizza b4 it cools, i feel like the sooner most cooked breads are stored the better. every second of open air cooling means lost steam and more stale dryness when u reheat.

How to do the math:
Take the pizza size (in inches) and divide it by the cost to get it's Relative Value Index.
The higher the better
It is usually the case that the larger radius/diameter pizza has a better Relative Value Index)

Why this works:
More pizza area = more value
Area = pi(radius)2, or pi(diameter/2)2
Value is measured in area units per dollar (e.g. sq in per dollar)
When comparing the values, they're both multiplied by a constant of pi/4 (assuming they use diameter), so we can ignore this and just focus on the diameter squared (then divided by the cost to get sq in per dollar.)

Try it! Which of these pizzas are the best?
4 inch pizza for $10
10 inch pizza for $20

Keep the leftover pizza in its box out of the fridge and just eat it before it gets slimy

another reheating method is on a covered pan/skillet on low heat. i've never tried this with frozen pizza but definitely works like cold if you want your cheese a little meltier
