Reheating a leftover pizza to the same level of crispiness can be difficult. The first step is to ditch the microwave. You’ll end up with a soggy pizza slice. Microwaves heat water that’s in food, so the pizza will end up steaming from the inside out. The better way to reheat a pizza is to use a skillet on the stove.
This can be a nonstick skillet or a cast iron skillet. Any skillet tends to work so long as it has a lid.
- Heat up the skillet. Place the skillet over medium low heat and add a little oil to it. You can use nonstick spray to get an even layer.
- Put the pizza slices in the skillet and make sure they’re aren’t overlapping. You want them to be in full contact with the bottom of the skillet.
- Put the lid on. After a few minutes, the slices will begin to crisp. Pop the lid and let the slices steam on top. This will remelt the cheese and heat the rest of the toppings. Your pizza should be back to super crispy and delicious.
Ovens can also reheat pizzas but it tends to be a waste of energy for a few slices that are already cooked. If needed, you can put the slices on parchment paper on a baking sheet, and let them cook for about 10 minutes.
