  • The Big T

    I’d say it all depends on how many slices of pizza you eat as to whether it’s a snack or meal. If it’s just one slice, then probably a snack.
    However, if I’m still hungry after I eat it, I’m sure it will be just a snack and I’ll eat again or have a couple more pieces.
    I also prefer to eat hot pizza as opposed to cold pizza. The pizza usually never makes it to become leftovers.

  • I totally agree Big T. I think number of slices is the key. I do think however that a single slice could be either. Leftover pizza is rare for me too! I do however sometimes grab it by the slice – here in NYC you can get it that way, at the mall to (Sbarro?). I will get it cold (really room temperature) and eat it while I walk around. That’s defiantly a snack. Thanks for posting!
