What if I told you leftover pizza could be as good as fresh pizza from a restaurant? Using this method of reheating, it can be. And it’s easy as (pizza) pie.
My roommate recently shared this method with me. Before, I had been using a toaster oven, and if I was in a hurry, the microwave. Boy, am I glad I learned this method. Leftover pizza is now something I look forward to eating because the crust is hot and crispy, and the cheese is perfectly melted.
This method works for pretty much any type of pizza. Whether you’re reheating take-out, leftovers from a restaurant frozen pizza, your pizza will tastes as good as fresh.
Whatever you do, don’t reheat your pizza in the microwave! Save yourself from soggy crust.
Reheating Pizza In a Skillet
A cast iron skillet is the preferred tool for this method. If you don't have a skillet, I would recommend first heating the pizza in a frying pan with a bit of oil. Then transfer the pizza slices on to a piece of tin foil and place in the broiler.
Olive oil, if your skillet is dry
Preheat broiler to high. Place pizza into your most seasoned skillet. Add a bit of olive oil to the skillet is dry. Heat the pizza in the skillet over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until the bottom of the crust is hot and toasted.
Transfer skillet to the broiler. Heat until the top of the pizza is hot and bubbly. This takes about two minutes in my broiler. Remove from broiler and enjoy your hot, crisp-on-the-bottom, melted-on-the-top pizza.
