Article should have been:

Stop!  Cold pizza is awesome.  Just eat it.
 
2014-01-16 11:37:46 PM
I will definitely try this!
 
2014-01-16 11:39:21 PM
Meh. My toaster oven works fine.
 
2014-01-16 11:46:03 PM
#1 Cold pizza is indeed awesome
#2 I too will try this
#3 Toaster oven is fine, especially since after the first couple times you know how hot and how long to put it in there.

syrynxx: Article should have been:

Looks like we're done in one again.

Yeah- just eat it.  Its cheese, bread, and some toppings... all of which are perfectly fine cold or room temperature.

This. Especially if the tray has a wire rack on it. I tried it in a frying pan once but the crust burned before the cheese melted.

Plus, since it's a slice, that cheese melts off the edge directly onto the pan.

The skillet method is great.  The trick is to heat the slices up on a low heat, and to remove them when the cheese has begun to look soft or melt-y.  If you wait  too long, it will burn/blacken on the bottom.

I think that most pizza boxes have the skillet method listed on the side or on the flaps of the top as the preferred reheating method.

Or just buy a pizza you can eat in one sitting, you freaks.
 
2014-01-17 02:36:57 AM
or you could just smother it in ranch and eat it cold....

That wouldn't necessarily be a problem for me. Fried cheese is yummy.

Am I the only omnivore on the planet who feels that cold pizza is a vile degradation of a sublime substance? i mean, I've got an oven and I've got five minutes. Why wouldn't I bring this preserved specimen of greatness back to full flower?

The perfect slice
 
2014-01-17 02:39:12 AM
I generally prefer to reheat my pizza on a pizza stone in a preheated oven at about 350°f... I find that I get a crispy crust and the cheese melts a little faster than in a skillet where you run the risk of burning the crust by the time the cheese gets good and melted. Skillet (cast iron) works well in a pinch if you don't have a pizza stone, but I do have a pizza stone, so I use that.
 
2014-01-17 02:39:56 AM
I prefer the combo method-about 30sec in the microwave to start the cheese melting, then on a skillet to crisp up the bottom

\cold pizza is good, but better than hot pizza? that's crazy talk

Pizza stones are glorious.

this heating method is the same effect as 'pizza by the slice' joints.


my fave pizza place in Brooklyn had nasty gooey whole pies, but by the slice? oh. how I miss you.

Like anyone has time to fire up the oven to 350 just to heat up a pizza stone so that a couple slices of leftover pizza can be reheated.

Re-heat it in the microwave for 30 sec. - 1 min. Comes out tasting fine.
 
2014-01-17 02:53:09 AM
Cast iron skillet, 2 slices of pizza, put pan in oven, turn on oven to 350, set timer for 15 mins. It's better than when I first bought it. Crispy, gooey, goodness.

I hate when idiots post "YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!!" when they post an alternative and usually non-intentional discovery in the way you can use a certain thing.

You know what I'm talking about. The tripe that BuzzFeed or Subtard loves to post. As if those things were created with such intentions in mind. No, it's not wrong! Nobody was using ketchup recipients or chinese food containers "wrong", they were being used as intended, you (well, not you, you, but someone else) found a clever way of using those things and that's all. Doesn't mean he's right or that it was always the intended way.

A good pizza is like a properly cooked steak or seafood. You can only heat it once to the right degree of doneness - any heating past that makes the cheese and bread rubbery, dries out the toppings, and cooks off the sugars and moisture in the sauce.

I was restrained in my comments on TFA, but basically, I'd have said to the author of TFA, "fark you and everybody that looks like you."

Cast iron skillets can be used to MAKE pizza, but using one to reheat bullshiat pizza from those assholes down the block who take an hour to deliver, add a $3 delivery charge ("any delivery charge is not a tip to your delivery person") and leave you no useful coupons....

Well, hipsters, there are 583 recipes online where you can make your OWN farkING PIZZA in that cast iron skillet and on /b/ there are probably 200 ways you can shove that skillet up your own ass hole and probably get millions of pageviews and FB followers doing so.

You only get one chance to eat pizza hot out of the oven. There is no re-warm, There is only cold pizza goodness.

Indeed. Next week it'll be: TATTOOS: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG and they'll be talking about using your iron skillet as a hammer to drive the ink deeply into your chakra or some such BS.

I keep my pizza stone in the oven all the time (it helps regulate the heat in the oven even when I'm not cooking directly on it). The extra five minutes isn't so bad... you turn it on... walk away... do something else for a few minutes, come back, throw pizza in, wait for about 5 minutes, take pizza out and eat. It's especially nice if you are reheating pizza for more than just yourself since you can reheat many more slices at once than you can in a skillet. Another advantage is even heating. Even with an iron skillet you'll get uneven heat (unless you have a really awesome induction stove). But if it's just you... I could see why you wouldn't bother.

For my family and I, it's worth that extra five minutes for a superior result.

Do you have a wood-fired oven or something? It doesn't take that long to preheat an oven.

If you haven't got 15 minutes to spare, eat the pizza cold.

Why are all of these solutions so complicated? I just throw a slice on the rocks outside and it's done in a few seconds.

Anyone whose worked in a weld shop knows the absolute best method is to put them in the heater cabinet with the alloy sticks about half an hour before lunch.

Whatever. I am not claiming to be the Charles Darwin of putting pizza in a skillet, nor the Alfred Russel Wallace. I wish only to be a Thomas Henry Huxley, pretentious douchebag.

On a certain desert camping trip, each morning my friends fried a big pan full of bacon, took some 3-day leftover Little Caeser's out of the cooler, and then fried the pizza in the bacon grease.

It probably knocked several days off my life expectancy but I'd do it again.

Same. If I have pizza leftovers it's because it was delivery or take out. If I had delivery pizza it's because I didn't feel like making myself anything to eat.

I certainly won't dirty up anything for leftovers that doesn't go in a dishwasher or trashcan.

I am so going to try that.

Wow, this is old news. This is the way my mother taught me to reheat pizza. Unfortunately, nowadays I usually have too much left over, so I have to reheat it in batches. Or maybe my pans are too small. Anyway, it works - crispy bottom (but watch it for burning) and melty top. Lid it or not, but if you do, there will be a certain amount of water created.
 
2014-01-17 03:32:11 AM
Ive done the skillet one before but guess what? You can only really fit one or two slices on there at once. IM NOT A GODDAMN 5 YEAR OLD GIRL! When I eat left over pizza its a whole pizza cause I bought two the night before so that I could eat another one the next day!

Also, if your delivered or take-away pizza is not quite crisp enough, the skillet method is great to add that crunchy texture as well as a boost of warmth.
 
2014-01-17 03:38:49 AM
I put my cold pizza onto an ethically-sourced marble pizza-reheating stone that gets put onto a lava-rock opening in my gas stove made specifically for reheating pizza.  Of course I try to only make as much pizza as I will need in one sitting because the organic, sustainably-harvested quinoa flour that I use is very expensive and has a very short life span once the grains start to absorb moisture.
 
2014-01-17 03:39:12 AM
If you burn the bottom before the cheese gets melty, maybe, I dunno, turn the heat down. And then kill yourself for not being competent enough to make grilled cheese.
 
2014-01-17 03:41:11 AM
What's this 'reheating one or two slices' business about anyway?

You could probably heat up two slices, and then begin eating those while the next two are heating up.

There is something deeply and frighteningly wrong with people so misguided as to think cold pizza is anything other than revolting.

Seriously, if you think cold pizza is just as good as hot pizza, seek medical help.  You probably have cancer or something.
