Reheating leftover pizza to its former delicious glory was once thought to be an impossibility. It was believed that once a pizza suffered the fate of being stuffed in a chilly refrigerator it was dead and its soul was lost forever.

Great philosophers and commoners alike have long pondered the age-old question, 'Can pizza be reheated back to life?'

After many years and decades of asking and exploring the question, the answer has finally been revealed.

Yes, pizza can be reheated to its original, hot and delicious state of excellence, and in this article, we will tell you exactly how to do it.


The Best and Easiest Way to Reheat Pizza

There are a few ways to effectively reheat pizza that we will mention in this blog, but we'll start with the BEST and the EASIEST way to reheat pizza.

The first thing you have to understand about reheating pizza is that a microwave is simply not an option. Don't be a lazy bum and toss your pizza in a microwave; you'll get one part of the pizza cold, and another part burning your mouth up.

Sometimes, you get what you deserve in life.

Reheating pizza is an art that is worth the effort. Pizza is your loyal friend who has always been there for you. Now it's time to repay the favor and be there for your pizza.

The best way to reheat a pizza is in your oven, and it's very easy and simple to do.

Now that we know the oven is the best way to reheat pizza, let's get into the directions on how to resurrect your pizza.

Step-by-Step Guide: How to Reheat Pizza

1.) Take your pizza out of the fridge and let it start getting to room temperature

2.) Set your oven rack to the middle position.

3.) Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. for a softer crust or 475 degrees F. for a crispier crust.

4.) Separate your pizza into individual slices.

5.) Tear off a piece of aluminum foil for each slice.

6.) Place each slice of pizza on a square of aluminum foil.

Alternatively, you can use a pizza stone or cast iron skillet, but aluminum foil works just fine.

7.) Open the oven and carefully place each slice on the oven rack.

8.) Close the oven door.

9.) Cook for 3-5 minutes.

10.) Open the oven, remove the pizza, allow a minute to cool, then enjoy!

Optional Step: for thin-crust pizzas, many people will add a pan of water to the oven before preheating. The water heats up and creates a more humid and moist atmosphere to keep thinner pizzas from drying out in the oven.

There it is, ladies and gentlemen, the best way to restore a pizza to its former glory.

You're welcome!

Our recommended method of reheating pizza is to bake the pizza around 425-475 degrees F for a few minutes, but other ways take a little less time and produce similar results.

Let's dive into the other methods.


Use an Air Fryer to Reheat Your Pizza

Air fryers are a great invention and can certainly be effective in reheating your leftover pizza. Not everyone has an air fryer, which is one reason we recommend the oven method overall, but if you have one, there's nothing wrong with using this method.

Set your air fryer to 350 degrees F. and cook your leftover pizza for just two or three minutes.

The consistent and even heat allows for an optimized reheating experience.

The air fryer method will produce results very similar to the oven method.

Use a Broiler to Reheat Your Pizza

When you're baking or roasting something in your oven, heat comes from the top and bottom (and on some models, the back) of your oven to distribute heat evenly to cook food.

The broil option on your oven activates a top-down heat only.

The benefit of the broiler method is that you don't need to wait for the oven to preheat before you stick your leftover pizza in.

When using the broiler method to reheat pizza, simply grab a slice of leftover pizza, toss it on a square of aluminum foil or pizza stone, and broil on high for just a minute or so.

The top-down heat will quickly reheat the cheese back to its hot and bubbling state.

The only drawback to the broiler method is that the bottom of the slice doesn't get as hot and reinvigorated as with the conventional baking method.

But if you're short on time, use this method. (Not the microwave!)

Bottom Line

Pizza is a delicious food that most people love. In fact, pizza is often listed as people's favorite food when asked what their favorite food is.


If you're like me, you rarely leave leftover pizza. Let's be honest here, guys, the best method of reheating pizza is to never let it get cold in the first place.


Sometimes, though, you need to reheat pizza. It happens to us all from time to time. And now, after reading this article, you are fully equipped with the knowledge of how to effectively reheat your pizza to its glorious hot and delicious state of excellence.
