In 3 easy steps it
tastes like fresh!
We indulge in a pizza perhaps twice a year. We love pizza, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not the healthiest of foods for a diabetic or someone watching salt intake or even saturated fats. We’re a simmering urge that builds to a if-I-don’t-have-a-pizza-soon-I’ll- pop. And our local pizza take-away has a two-for-one offer on Tuesdays. Buy one, get the second one free. We ordered pizza. And we had a lot of leftovers.
Now I’ve tried many methods of reheating pizza, mostly because Mr Misky detests cold pizza (personally, I love it). I’ve microwaved it, which turns the cheese to tarmac, I’ve warmed it on low heat in oven, and I’ve warmed it on high heat in oven. Those methods are unsatisfactory as either the crust goes hard and brittle, or the toppings go hard and brittle. But I think I’ve found the best way to reheat pizza. It works best if you do one or two slices at a time.
You need a skillet or frying pan preheated on the stove. Don’t put your pizza slices in the pan until the surface is HOT.
1. Lid off: warm the slices for 2-3 minutes. Don’t let them burn. If it starts to scorch, turn down the heat.
2. Add a few drops of water to the pan’s surface – but not on the pizza. Now quick….
3. Clap on the lid or cover tightly with foil, so the water evaporates and creates steam. About 2-minutes should do the trick.
