In today’s society recycling is in vogue. So why not recycle that leftover pizza.
Well, maybe not recycle but reheat. Food Network recommends the skillet method.
We have tried the skillet method. It works. It works either with our without water. If you add water, only do a little bit of water because too much just doesn’t cut it (you do not want to boil your pizza). The dry skillet method works just as well.
We also give the oven method two thumbs up…it gives you a “second bite” at the pizza. Here is the food network “recipe” for great leftover pizza:
“When it comes to reheating, resist the urge to pop a slice in the microwave. Why? Again: dryness. Microwave leftover pizza, and it’ll not only dry out but also harden. G-r-o-s-s. Instead, reach for a nonstick skillet. Reheating a slice on the stove is one of the fastest ways to achieve a crisp crust and gooey cheese.
Here’s how you reheat leftover pizza on the stove: Place a slice in a skillet over medium heat, cover the skillet and cook for six to eight minutes. Some people swear that adding a few drops of water to the skillet gets the cheese extra melty, but we’ve found that covering the skillet yields the same results by trapping steam.
To reheat a bunch of slices at the same time, turn up your oven as hot as it’ll go and place a baking sheet inside while it preheats. When the oven comes to temperature, carefully transfer the slices to the baking sheet in a single layer. Cook them until the cheese is hot and bubbly. The goal is to blast the ’zza with heat, so the crust gets crispy again but the cheese doesn’t dry out.” food network

"Food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It's inseparable from those from the get-go."
