I have never been a fan of reheating leftover pizza in the microwave, so I usually opt to eat it cold. But one night the desire to eat hot food combined with the lack of any other food in the house except pizza, and I found myself searching the internet for the best way to reheat pizza.
The internet’s advice? Ten minutes in the oven at 400 degrees.
There was no way I was going along with that so I kept searching and searching. And site after site said the same thing: 10 minutes at 400 degrees. I had to try it.
Per most recommendations, I put a cookie sheet in the oven before turning it on. Once the oven was sufficiently preheated, I put the pizza slices on the hot cookie sheet. I then proceeded to panic, sure that the only means of feeding myself would go up in smoke.
I was wrong. And the internet — the place that assured me that this method makes pizza taste like it’s fresh from the restaurant — was right. The pizza was hot, crisp, and tasty. I may never eat cold pizza again.
Except, perhaps, for breakfast.
