Kitchen Hack: How To Reheat Pizza Without Making it Soggy or Dry
Learn how to reheat leftover pizza, without making it soggy or dry.

Somehow you couldn't finish the entire pizza, and when you wake up the next morning, all you can think of are those glorious leftovers. Now, I'm a fan of cold pizza just like the guy next door but let’s face it, there’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap. A crisp base, stringy cheese, fresh toppings and tangy sauce all come together to make it a work of art. So when the crust is all dried out, how do you get the hot grease flowing again?

Throwing it on the grill or popping it in the microwave is only going to do render your slice a soggy mess. So being constantly on the go, we've got you covered with the easiest trick of all! If you haven't tried this already, you should. All it takes is 60 seconds to revamp your day-old pizza and restore its original crispiness.

Here’s the super smart kitchen hack:

How To Heat Up Leftover Pizza:

1. Get a microwave-safe plate and place the pizza slices on it.

Listen to the latest songs, only on

2. Next, find a glass that will fit inside the microwave along with the plate, and fill it up with 2/3rd water.

3. For 45-60 seconds or so, heat the pizza and the water. (The water helps in adding moisture to the air thereby keeping the pizza from drying out).

Comments4. Voila, you’ve achieved the desired result - gooey cheese and a crispy crust.
