How to Reheat Pizza


Bring limp, lifeless leftover pizza back to crispy, delicious life! See Chef John’s foolproof stovetop method for reheating leftover pizza so it comes... See more out with tasty melted cheese on top and a perfectly crisp crust on the bottom (crispier than the toaster-oven method). It’s a fast method, too—no waiting around for the oven to preheat. You can also use this method to crisp-up delivery pizza that’s been steamed soggy in the box. Find the best homemade pizza recipes.

Tried this last night. Worked just as well as Chef John said it would. A great idea!

Been doing it forever...first I put pizza face down and warm up until cheese starts to melt then flip.(No foil) For an extra deliciousness I add a pat of butter to flavor and crisp the bottom. For garlic lovers like myself u can sprinkle some garlic powder into the butter. Rarely does anyone in my family eat pizza from the box as they all love crispy HOT pizza. Watch out it can be hot enough to burn..stringy HOT cheese can remove a chin :)
