We love pizza and usually buy the large one for just the two of us. Of coarse, we always have enough left for another meal or snack. To reheat and keep the crust crispy just heat in a non stick skillet and med-low till warm. The crust will remain crispy. Enjoy!

A great way to reheat leftover pizza is in a frying pan. Place the pizza in the frying pan over medium heat. Cover loosely with a piece of aluminum foil that is domed in the center so it doesn't stick to the cheese. It can burn quickly so check it every few minutes until it is heated through and is crispy enough for you on the bottom. The result is a crispy crust, instead of the rubbery, soggy crust you get when microwaved.

When reheating bread that has been refrigerated, put in the microwave with a cup of water. It saves pizza, pancakes, muffins and bread from getting dried out or rubbery.

Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove. Set heat to med-low and heat until warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.

It does work very well. If you like pan pizza, especially Chicago style, drizzle a very small amount of olive oil in the pan before you put the pizza in. (05/03/2007)

We reheat pizza in the toaster-oven, on the toast setting, warms it without making the crust soggy. Doesn't burn it unless you're not paying attention! (05/03/2007)
Wow!!I have got to try this for sure. I have never liked our leftover pizza very well and this should take care of that!! Thanks for writing in. (05/03/2007)
Also, use your pizza stone that has been preheated to keep the crust crispy. (05/04/2007)
