How To Reheat Pizza Like a Pro
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.
So go ahead and take your leftovers home.
And whatever you do – don’t go near your microwave!
The Best Method For Reheating Pizza
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: Take-out, leftovers from a restaurant, frozen pizza, etc.
When you reheat pizza this way, it will taste as good as fresh.
Whatever you do, don’t reheat your pizza in the microwave! Save yourself from soggy crust. Use this cast iron skillet-method instead!
- Leftover pizza
- Cooking oil, if your cast iron skillet is dry
- Preheat broiler to high. Place pizza into your most seasoned skillet. Add a bit of 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.
