    Default reheating pizza the American Test Kitchen way.

    This week on "American Test Kitchen" they were doing pizza's and one
    of the tips was on reheating pizza. just as they started to show it
    the phone rang so I missed the details except for the skillet part.

    Tried it yesterday, and it seemed to work good except for the badly
    burnt bottom.

    Did someone catch that episode and can you tell me the details?
    Thanks MC

    I didn't see the show but my normal practice is to put a piece of
    pizza in a dry pan over medium heat. Works fine, produces better
    crust than the microwave, faster than the toaster oven. If the piece
    is particularly cheesy I cover the pan to help melt the cheese. The
    bottom won't burn unless the pan is too hot. -aem

    Was this for frozen pizza? I'd sure like to learn how to make that work!
    It's never quite right.

    No. It's for leftover pizzaria pizza.
    Got it to work today by turning down the heat. ( The nasty part is
    that you can't tell when the cheese is actually melting because it
    doesn't look like it. )

    I suppose if you want, you can cook a froze rn pizza the normal way
    and then put it on a skillet to make a crispier crust.

    Sorry, nothing will make a frozen pizza taste good. Yuck. You might
    make one taste better, but it will never taste good.

    I make a lot of pizza in the home and the leftover does end up getting
    frozen. I've never been able to make it come back to life quite the right
    way.

    "Better" and "good" are relative and subjective.

    Why are there are an awful lot (Billions) of frozen pizzas sold, many
    must think they are good, and perhaps better than from the pizzaria
    considering the price, and many must think they're better than home
    made from scratch, I've tasted some folks homemade (blech), and frozen
    are certainly a lot less work. And a good many pizzerias use frozen
    ingredients anyway, even frozen dough.

    It's actually pretty easy to rejuvenate left over pizza, whether
    refrigerated or frozen, IF it was properly wrapped and one is willing
    to light their conventional oven, NOT the microwave or the toaster
    oven. But most left over pizza finds it's way into the fridge right
    in the cardboard box, and it's too much effort for people to light
    their regular oven so some nuke it but most eat it cold... no one is
    going to expend the effort for a couple slices left over pizza. But
    no mattter what you do pizza won't get better in time... pizza is just
    like any other baked goods, with time it gets stale, baked goods are
    not like stew, they don't get better reheated the next day

    I just reheat it a few slices at a time in the oven
    at about 400F for about 12-15 minutes. I actually like
    reheated pizza better than fresh because the crust gets
    crispier. I will buy a large or extra-large just for me
    and then eat it all week, reheating a couple of slices
    every night. Yum.
