What is the best way to reheat a slice of cold leftover pizza, or heating up a frozen pizza (shout out to Screamin Sicilian fans)?
Reheat your pizza in a toaster oven
The best way to reheat pizza is using a toaster oven — period. Because of how a toaster oven heats up and applies hot air, your pizza will reheat nicely without leaving the crust soggy. Depending on your toaster oven, use the dedicated Pizza setting or toast on medium heat until cheese starts to melt.
Make sure to try a pizza stone!
Pro tip: if you’re using aluminum foil, fold over a piece of foil over the crust — it will prevent it from burning.
Reheat your pizza in a skillet
Second place goes to a non-stick skillet. To get melty cheese, moist crust and a crispy bottom, simply follow the process:
- Put your cold pizza into a non-stick skillet on medium or low heat.
- Cook for 2 minutes or until bottom is crispy.
- Place 2 drops of water into the skillet away from the pizza. Turn the heat to low.
- Cover the skillet and steam until the cheese melts (about 1 minute).
Reheat your pizza in a microwave
This is by far the worst way to reheat your pizza as chances are that you will end up with a sorry, soggy bit of bread with cheese that tastes like cardboard. But sometimes this is inevitable, and drastic times call for drastic measures.
If you do choose to follow this road, try this:
- Put a mug with some water in the microwave alongside your pizza to help melt the cheese.
- Put some parchment paper underneath the pizza to absorb the extra moisture.
- Microwave on low power.
