There are so many instances where you had to freeze a leftover pizza or pizza dough, and almost every one of you would agree that you have had to do it at some point in time.
At least in my case, there is always some leftover Pizza Hut pizza or pizza dough, and there was a time when I ended up storing my pizza so that they were simply soggy and not edible.
This made me learn new hacks and tricks to freeze homemade pizza, easily store leftover pizzas and reheat them for later without any issue.
Do read the entire review as I would discuss a few ways in which you can reheat your pizza, and it tastes like the pizza when it was just cooked and hot.
How to Freeze and store a pizza?
I always made the mistake of storing my pizzas along with the box they came in. Try not to do that as my pizzas always got soggy, and the outcome was not that great. Instead, try to put them in a foil, store, and reheat them for later.
I usually just keep them on a plate and then pop them inside the freezer. This way, you are not restricting the air avoiding any situation of turning your pizza dough soggy.
Now you can keep it in our fridge or refrigerator and this way you can easily store pizza slices for around 3-4 days, this goes with the dough as well.
However, make sure that you do not switch off your fridge while you have stored it inside as the hours the fridge doesn’t work, the temperatures might drop, and it might open up a window for the pizza to go bad.
Make sure in such cases you either eat the pizza or just throw it away. But do stay aware of the situation and do not ignore them when it happens.
Another thing is not to store a pizza slices or dough or other cooked foods for more than four days and reheat them for later.
I know many posts suggest that you can freeze it for longer, but I do not think it is a great idea. Make sure you consume it as soon as you can within the next few days.
Pizza Hut Pizza, Domino’s, Papa John’s, Lou Malnati’s, And More
Whether you get delivery pizza, takeaway, or takeout from Domino’s Pizza Hut pizza, Papa Joh’s, Lou Malnati’s, or more, you can always store the cooked pizza if you are not able to finish it.
While I usually put leftover pizza delivery in the fridge, I also put takeaway or takeout pizza in the freezer but not for too long.
I think storing Pizza Hut pizza, Domino’s pizza crust, Papa John’s, and Lou Malnati’s pizza in the freezer is the best way to store the takeaway, delivery, or takeout pizza.
Frozen pizza dough, pizza bases, and pizza sauce can be easily cooked but if the pizza itself is already cooked, then you have to make sure that you reheat it.
That is especially true with delivery, takeaway, or takeout pizza from Papa John’s, Domino’s, Lou Malnati’s, or Pizza Hut pizza as they might have gathered some bacteria on their way to your house.
The pizza toppings like the meat on your pepperoni pizza will go bad earlier than the pizza bases and sauce so make sure that you store them properly and reheat them the right way.
How to reheat a Pizza Slice?
Now there is one way where you can put the slices inside an oven and reheat it for later so that the slice tastes as good as it did before.
Apart from that, you can put it on a pan, and once you place the slice, make sure to put the stove on high flame.
Take a few drops of water and sprinkle around the slice of pizza slices and cover the pan with a lid so that the steam cooks the pizza slices.
This way, the slice gets heated from the bottom and the top, making the pizza tastes really good. You would feel like you are eating a fresh pizza slice, so try this trick and let us know how it works for you!
Most of the time, I just reheat my pizza on the pan rather than putting it inside the microwave oven. I guess I’m used to using the pan and find it easier that way.
Although you can reheat your pizza slices for later inside a microwave oven, you should try the pan trick and let us know which one is better.
I found it easier to reheating on the pan, and it is a little fun when you sprinkle some water and see all the steam form. This is something satisfying for me to watch, so I can be a little biased.
