3 delicious ideas for leftover pizza

Pizza is a delicious food when it's hot, but it can often be difficult to finish in one sitting. Thankfully, there are some awesome ways to take advantage of leftover pizza.

1. Make pizza eggs

If you have leftover pizza, you can use it first thing in the morning to create a delicious and nutritious breakfast. What you'll need to do is gather three eggs, a slice of cold pizza and some shredded cheddar cheese.

  • Start by slicing the pizza with a sharp knife into half inch cubes.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat, and stir the pizza cubes into the eggs.
  • Let the mixture stand for five minutes to allow the pizza crust to soak up the liquid from the eggs.
  • Melt butter or oil in a pan, then scramble the pizza and egg mixture like you would scrambled eggs, and add cheese to the top.
  • Once the eggs are cooked all the way through and the cheese is melted, enjoy like a delicious scramble or omelet.

2. Turn it into croutons

The flavour of pizza, which includes cheese, tomatoes, and Italian spices, pairs well with lots of other foods — particularly soups and salads. Take advantage of leftover pizza slices by turning them into croutons.

  • To turn leftover pizza intro croutons, slice the pieces of pizza into small squares, then add them to a cast iron pan coated in olive oil.
  • Turn the stove on to medium or medium-high, then allow the pieces to get crispy and hard.
  • Once they're crispy, you can add them to the top of a salad, like a Caesar salad, or you can put them on top of a tomato soup or minestrone.

3. Reheat it

You might think that once pizza is cold, it's past its prime and can't be reheated. You're wrong — pizza can be reheated to taste as good as it did originally (or even better!).

  • Don't just put your leftover pizza in the microwave.
  • Instead, try heating a skillet over medium high for a minute, adding the pizza, then covering loosely with a lid.
  • Allow the pizza to cook for two or three minutes, then enjoy.
  • While this may take more time than the microwave, the pizza will taste as fresh as if it was just delivered.
  • You can add some extra flavour to reheated, leftover pieces of pizza with shredded Parmesan, basil leaves or extra mozzarella .
