You’ve been out for Kosher pizza, but your eyes were bigger than your stomach. Therefore you wound up bringing more than half a pie home. What’s the best way to heat up your leftovers, without making them dry, soggy, overdone or just plain disgusting?
That’s a question Kosher pizza lovers everywhere have asked. Some rely on a microwave to heat up their slices, but that makes the whole thing a hot, soggy mess that must be eaten with a fork and knife. Others warm up their Kosher pizza in their conventional oven. That winds up seriously drying out the slices—making the toppings overdone and the crust as hard as a rock. In other words, the pizza is robbed of its taste and texture. What’s left?
The best way to heat up Kosher—or any other kind of—pizza is to use a nonstick skillet, and to do the reheating on top of your stove. While this might sound a bit unconventional, it really does work. And the result is Kosher pizza that tastes as good as it did when it was first baked.
Start by realizing this isn’t a quick one-minute fix, like using a microwave. It doesn’t take long, though, and you’ll be glad you used this method once you taste your reheated Kosher pizza.
Lightly spray your nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Set your burner to medium heat. Then add the number of slices you want to reheat into the skillet.
Using a spatula, lift your Kosher pizza slices every thirty seconds or so. If the crust is browning fast, reduce the heat. In between five and seven minutes, your Kosher pizza will be reheated and ready to enjoy.
