If you’re someone who orders pizza on a semi-regular basis, then there’s a good chance you already know how wonderful it is and the capacity for having leftovers it creates. Now, if you find yourself with some leftover slices in your fridge in the morning, you might feel the temptation to heat them up in the microwave and continue the pizza party from the night before. Before you go and do that, here’s some delicious information that you should spend a few moments digesting—cold pizza is a fine delicacy, and it’s certainly one that has some unique advantages.
Here’s a question—when was the last time you had breakfast before you began your day? (And be honest.) Don't worry, you’re not alone. Many of us have schedules that keep us busy and on our feet for most of the day, and taking a few moments for some essential nourishment before leaving that house isn't always an option. That’s where cold pizza comes to the rescue! Grab a slice from the fridge and chomp it down on your way to work. You’ll find yourself having a more productive day and not hitting that mid-afternoon slump.
When pizza has cooled off in the fridge, one of the things you’ll notice is that it develops a different consistency than it did when it was first delivered or came out of the oven. And believe it or not, there’s an advantage to this. The thicker consistency means that less is needed to fill you up and give you the satisfaction of your hunger being alleviated.
While we’ve already established the fact that the consistency of cold pizza is most fulfilling and it’s incredibly convenient for those of us on the go, we forgot to mention the most important thing–the taste! Refrigerated pizza has a very unique taste to it. When served at cold temperatures, the marinara sauce has a very similar taste to gazpacho (A Spanish tomato soup served chilled), and some toppings, such as pineapple, taste great when they’ve been chilled overnight. This also proves once and for all that pineapple belongs on pizza.
