There have been so many times that I have tried reheating a pizza inside a microwave oven, and it has been nothing but a failure.
I still prefer heating my pizzas in the pan as it is a lot easier, and I do not need to go and switch on the microwave.
If you have not tried reheating your pizza inside on a pan, then do check out this post where we give step by step instructions on how you can reheat your pizza on a pan.
I think once I discovered the hack on how to reheat your pizza on a pan, I never cranked up my microwave for this purpose ever again.
It’s easier and way faster to do it in the pan. I can even heat the base of the slice for as long as I need and make it real crispy, which gives the pizza slice a great taste.
But, there are times, when you do not have many options, and you want to toss your pizza inside the microwave.
Well, if you find yourself in a similar situation, then we have a hack that can help you reheat your pizza without having to deal with any soggy mess that happens when a pizza slice is reheated inside a microwave.
Steps to be followed-
1. Take out the pizza slice from the fridge. Usually, I do not keep my pizza slices in the deep freezer as I tend to finish eating my pizza leftovers within a day or so.
But if you plan on keeping your pizza for longer then I recommend that you wrap the slices in an aluminum foil and store it in the deep freezer as this way, they would not spoil.
2. Now, leave the slices outside for an hour or so, until they attain average room temperature. This way, the pizza is heated uniformly, and it heats up faster.
3. The next step would be to place your pizza inside the microwave for about 30-45 seconds, along with a cup of water.
You place the cup of water so that the cheese melts perfectly and the top of the pizza is soft in comparison to the bottom, which is crisp.
This way, you would not be making the toppings or the cheese dry, which can happen if you place the pizza slice inside the microwave and cook it for too long.
Keep an eye on the pizza, and just when the cheese starts boiling, you need to remove the slice out from the microwave oven.
This way, you would get a perfectly reheated slice of pizza.
If you have a small microwave oven, then you can reheat only one slice of pizza at a time.
The pizza base might not get as crisp as it gets when you reheat it in a pan, so you might want to take out your pan and place the slice on it so that you can heat the base and get it all nice and crispy.
If you are doing this, then make sure that you have the pan on a high flame since all you want to do is get a crispy base.
Getting a crispy base is one of the reasons I prefer the pan to do the complete process as not only is it convenient, I can reheat atleast two slices at a time, and things get faster and easier.
So, go ahead and store any leftover pizzas that you have since this trick would avoid them from being all soggy and keep them relatively crispier.
I’m someone who does not like to eat cold slices of pizza as well, so, if you are in the same group, then you would find this method of reheating frozen pizzas a lifesaver.
