Pizza is delicious when it's fresh, but leftover and reheated pizza can be soggy and unenjoyable. Try one of these three ways to get tasty, crispy reheated pizza.

3 ways to make leftover pizza delicious

1. Pop it in the oven

  • First, set the oven to medium-low temperature and let it preheat for a while.
  • While the oven is warming, spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray or a little olive oil and then place the pizza on it.
  • Place the skillet on the centre shelf and heat until the pizza is warm.
  • The skillet fries the bottom of the pizza and restores the crispy feel of it without cooking all the grease out and making it soggy.

1. Use the microwave

If you do need to use a microwave, you can still get it crispy without being soggy. The answer lies in using parchment paper.

  • Rather than just slapping the pizza slice on a paper plate, place it on a sheet of parchment paper or wrap the pizza in parchment paper and then place it on a plate and heat as usual.
  • Using parchment paper will allow it to heat quickly and come out much crispier than usual.

3. Try the toaster oven

  • Preheat the toaster oven up to 204 degrees, but make sure it is fully preheated before putting the pizza in.
  • Once it's ready, place the pizza on the tray.
  • Because most toaster ovens are small, you'll probably have to do this one or two slices at a time.
  • It should take around 10 minutes to reheat.
  • If it looks like the cheese is melting or there is bubbling on top, it's done.

There's no need for your leftover pizza to be soggy and unenjoyable. Take the time to get the most of your money and reheat your pizza so that it's just as crisp and fresh-tasting as the day you bought it.
