Add a Glass of Water When Microwaving

Let’s start this off with something simple. If you insist on microwaving your pizza, there’s a simple trick that you can make use of to reheat it without completely drying it out. This trick is great if you’re in a hurry and want to revive a day-old slice.

Now, all you have to do is place a mug or cup (make sure that it’s microwave-safe) of the water next to the plate of pizza you’re trying to reheat. Heat the pizza on high and leave it in for around 45 seconds, and be sure to let the mug or cup cool down before pulling it out of the microwave. Microwaving the pizza this way lets you heat it up without drying it out completely.

Use Your Waffle Iron

On to something slightly more complicated. While waffle irons are great for making waffles in the morning, they can also be quite effective when it comes to reheating your leftover slice. What’s great about this method is you can even add extra toppings to your pizza.

All you have to do is to fold the pizza from top to bottom and cut off the rust. From there, just put it on your preheated waffle iron and let it cook for around four minutes. This will get the pizza’s cheese nice and gooey. Reheating the pizza on a waffle iron will also crisp it up, giving your pizza a nice crunch.

Make Pizza Eggs

This next hack is a great way to turn your leftover slice into a great breakfast feast.Now, this will require you to do some cooking, but we promise it’ll be worth it in the end. For this hack, you’ll need two eggs, some cheese, a tablespoon of milk, and fresh herbs.

Put all of the ingredients, except for the herbs, in a skillet and add bite-sized chunks of pizza into the mix. Add salt and pepper and cook the eggs until they’re nice and fluffy. Then, garnish the dish with fresh herbs and serve with a side of hot sauce.

Make Pizza Croutons

Lastly, this tip allows you to turn your leftover pizza into a tasty add-on for your salads. Take your leftover pizza and cut them into strips, and cut those strips into bite-sized cubes. From there, take two cubes and sandwich them together, with cheese side down. The last step of this process is to heat up a pan and fry the pizza cubes until they get fused together by the melty cheese.


Hopefully, you find the tips mentioned above helpful for when you have to deal with leftovers. There are many ways to get the most out of your leftover pizza. Keep these hacks in mind the next time you even consider nuking that cold slice of pizza in your microwave!
