Pizza should be eaten hot or lukewarm! If you have to prepare them a little in advance, before serving, place them in a pan and heat them for about 12 minutes in the oven at 100-120 °.
The pizza is good, heated in the oven or the microwave, even the next day. However, if you have several leftovers, you can freeze them in frost bags and eat them later.
