# How can I safely microwave both slices of pizza at the same time without letting the cheese touch anything,

165 views

I brought my lunch to work with me today: two square slices of pizza sealed in one small square Tupperware container. The slices just barely fit in the container, stacked one on top of the other. I want to microwave them both at the same time (because I'm lazy), but if the cheese side of either slice is touching the other slice of pizza, or the inner surface of the container, then the cheese will get stuck to whatever it's touching when it melts. And the crust is pretty soft, so the pizza slices will flop over and be ruined if I don't lay them flat.

The problem is, everyone else at work is horribly sick, so I don't trust ANYthing to be clean enough to touch my food except the inside of my container, since it has been sealed all day. No plates, no paper towels, not the inside of the microwave, NOTHING!

So how can I safely microwave both slices of pizza at the same time without letting the cheese touch anything, and without letting any part of the pizza touch any surface that might be contaminated?

Leave one slice in the container and take the second slice out. Turn the lid of the container upside down and lay the second slice on top of the nice, clean inner surface of the lid.

Two people are traveling across the country. They both leave from the same city, and both have the same final destination. They also both leave at the exact same day and time. One travels by bus, and the other by aircraft. However, the bus passenger arrives before the passenger on the aircraft.
How is this possible?
