Your second sentence is not clear.

"At breakfast he ate 1/3 of it"

1/3 of the pizza he has left, or 1/3 of the original pizza ?

If he eats 1/3 of what is left in the fridge, then (2/3) of the half - pizza is left, or 1/3 of the pizza is left

if he eats 1/3 of the original pizza for breakfast then he has eaten

1/2 + 1/3 = 5/6 , leaving 1/6 of the pizza
