If I had pancakes leftovers in a hot car for 1 1/2 hours and then refrigerated them for 3 hours before I ate them (cold), will I get food poisoning?
Unlikely: Food poisoning often is associated with certain foods, not usually pancakes. Also, because those pancakes were recently cooked -and were not left around for too long-it's quite unlikely to get food poisoning from them.

I do the same thing: You remind me of me. If the pizza has no odor, no discoloration, no mold like entity on it, and when you taste it, has no sour/bitter or musty odor and taste, then it is usually ok.
