I need to put a frozen pizza in the fridge, to use in several days time.

There isn't enough space in the freezer for it.

I buy frozen pizzas because they are cheaper than fresh.

Is it safe to do this?

Probably. This is the sort of thing that I'd do myself but never recommend to others just incase they become ill from it.

It depends what's on it and how cold the fridge is, and how long you're keeping it for. And as long as you have a good eye/nose for telling if something's safe to eat.

Check on the packaging. For most, I think that you can store them in the fridge for a few days (4 might be pushing it though?), but they may not taste as good as if you'd cooked them from frozen :/

Extremely dangerous! You might start a salami chain reaction which will send your house into total meltdown.

Not usually. As long as you keep the pizza in the frigde and it the meat doesn't smell funny/look discoloured then you should be fine.

Several days time = no
A few days time = yes

Besides it could take 24 hours to defrost in the first place (assume it's already frozen?)

I tihnk it might be safe to keep it in the fridge for a few days, cook it, then keep it in the fridge some more and reheat it BUT YOU SHOULD LOOK THIS UP FIRST because i'm really not sure enough to say definitely do it and you won't get ill

lol a few days is the same as several days.

Am I missing something here?

Several to me implies 5/6/7+
A few to me means 3

LOL! You can't change the definition of a word to suit yourself.

A few = 3
Several = More than 3 but less than 5

Oh please don't turn this into an argument... i've just always thought that several was quite a lot.

Either way I wouldn't keep it for more than 3 days. Ok?

Can't see any reason why it wouldn't be fine, I'm trying to remember the food hygiene certificate I did last year... As long as you don't let it defrost THEN put it back in the freezer, there shouldn't be a problem.

DO NOT re-freeze it ! Once food has defrosted it starts (although VERY slowly) to decay.

That's what I said Unless I phrased it weirdly, but it's what I meant
I remember defrosting something then freezing it again was meant to be extremely bad, though I can't really remember why. Tbh most shop use-by dates are a bit pessimistic anyway - I've bought fruit on its supposed "last day" and it lasted 4 or 5 days, they're just understandably covering themselves in case somebody gets food poisoning.

You were "trying to remember" so I reminded you.

It's on the house.
