Cold, leftover pizza honestly makes for the perfect lunch. Whether it’s a classic slice of cheese, a meat-lovers with pepperoni, meatballs and sausage, or a pizza drowned in all of your favorite vegetables, all of these slices work well for a cold slice in the afternoon. But you know what doesn’t work? Containers that don’t make it easy to fit your slice. Unless you want to take a massive container to work, you’re either stuffing your slice in a small container or placing it in a plastic bag and hoping for the best as you make your way to the office. So what if I told you that Dollar Tree has thought of a solution?

Now sold in Dollar Tree stores, you can grab a triangle-sized container to perfectly fit that leftover slice of pizza for lunch. These containers come in three colors — white, navy, and turquoise — with a lid that clasps shut, keeping your slice of pizza secure. These containers are tall enough that if you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could pile two slices on top of one another for your lunch.

Not a fan of cold pizza? Don’t worry, these containers are safe in the microwave! Pop it in the microwave for a minute and have a warm slice ready to go when it’s time to eat. If you are heating up your pizza this way though, we recommend adding a glass of water in the microwave to prevent your pizza from getting soggy. However, if we had the option, the best way to reheat your pizza is either the oven or skillet. These containers are freezer-safe (save that slice for a future dinner!) and are also top-rack dishwasher-safe.

So whether you decide to order pizza from your favorite joint or make the perfect pizza at home, we have a feeling you’re going to want to stock up on one or two (or six) of these containers for lunch leftovers. Meal prep has never been this easy, right?!
