"Reheating leftover pizza isn’t a must—I’m one of those people who lives for a cold slice, straight from the fridge. However, if you want to reheat pizza properly, you have a few choices. The microwave is conspicuously not included, and that’s because reheating pizza in a microwave is not the best option—no matter how you slice it. Oven or stovetop are best choices, and we have three easy methods for reheating pizza outlined below."

  • Step 1/3

    • 2 leftover pizza slice
    • frying pan (with lid)
    • spatula

    Add cold pizza to a frying pan and heat over medium-low heat. Once the bottom is crisped up and hot, add a few drops of water to the pan (not on top of the pizza!), reduce heat to low and cover with a lid. Let steam until the cheese is warmed through and melted.

  • Step 2/3

    • 2 leftover pizza slice
    • oven
    • baking sheet

    Preheat the oven, with a baking sheet on the middle rack, to 230°C/450°F. Once both the oven and baking sheet are preheated, remove the hot baking sheet and place cold pizza on top. Return to the oven and bake at 275°C/575°F for approx. 5 min., or until heated through.

  • Step 3/3

    • 2 leftover pizza slice
    • aluminum foil

    Place your cold pizza on a baking sheet and loosely cover with aluminum foil. Transfer to a cold oven, then turn the oven on to 275°C/575°F. Bake for approx. 25 min., then uncover and enjoy!
