TikTok User Shares Brilliant Hack To Store Leftover Pizza

Let me ask you a question: what is your favorite food? If you answered pizza, you're in luck. If you ever find yourself with some leftover slices, this hack is for you.

One TikToker shared their genius way to store leftover pizza and I still can't believe I hadn't figured it out before seeing this video. I'm happy to share it with you below.

So if you usually finish the whole pizza in one sitting, this won't apply to you.

But if you're like me and end up with leftovers, this is pretty smart. It's so simple I feel a bit stupid for not knowing about it sooner, ha, ha!

First thing's first: Where do you store your leftover pizza slices?

Do you put them in a Ziploc bag? Or do you just toss the whole pizza box in your fridge? I definitely don't have extra fridge space for that.

What if I told you there was a clever way to fold the actual pizza box?

Would you believe me? Well, let me show you how this TikTok user did it, so you get the full idea. Okay, are you ready? Let's go.

Start by ripping off the lid of the pizza box.

Next, you need to get rid of some of the cardboard from the side flaps. The final step is to just fold the entire left over box in half.

Then, you tuck in the ends and voilà! It's done.

You now have a perfect mini pizza box that's ideal for leftovers. OMG! Can you believe that? How did I not know about this? What the heck is wrong with me? LOL!

Judging from the comments on this TikTok video, I'm not the only one who just discovered this hack.

So I don't feel as bad, ha, ha! And, you shouldn't either. It's okay —sometimes other people come up with clever stuff, that's all.

Someone even mentioned that you could turn the top of the box that you discarded into plates.

I mean, what? My mind is blown again here. I guess I never experimented enough with leftover pizza boxes as much as these folks.

However, this post didn't go viral without some controversy.

Some folks claim that not every pizza box can do this. Only the ones that have perforated edges can fold like this. And, this design is actually patented to be able to do it.

Did you know about this cool pizza box trick?

I think it's so cool. It makes storing those yummy leftovers a lot faster and easier. Sign me up for that, ha, ha! I only wish all pizza boxes could do this.
