How Long Can Pizza Sit Out and Still Be Safe to Eat?

Many people love pizza. But keeping a slice at home for a second or third helping is not always feasible. Fortunately, lots of restaurants are happy to sell us a single slice of pizza so we don’t have to throw away the rest. If you buy a slice of pizza to take home, how long can you keep it out before it goes bad? If you’re lucky enough to have a pizzeria that sells take-home slices, the service the staff provides is most likely an inconvenience. They give you the toppings on a small sheet of paper towel, they may even wrap it in plastic for you! How considerate! But what if we don’t feel like having pizza right now? They won’t let us buy just one slice? It gets worse: They won’t sell us just one topping so that we can make our own personal pan from the leftovers? We have no choice but to bring home several toppings and assemble them ourselves? And do it again tomorrow night?

Crust should be crispy, not brittle. You can also check the texture of the cheese. If it’s hard and rubbery, it’s no longer fresh. If you’ve kept your slice in the fridge, you can also check the temperature of the slice. If it’s above room temperature, it has been out for too long and is no longer fresh.
