    The Best Way to Reheat a Pizza Slice

    by Andrew Janjigian

      Reheat Pizza - Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza.

One further tip for this one: keep the heat pretty low and stir fairly often."
