How to Reheat Gluten-Free Pizza

April 3, 2013

The other day my toaster oven died. And it wasn't until lunch that I realized what a problem this was for me. See, there was cold pizza in the fridge and I wanted it for lunch.

But, I'm finicky about pizza. To reheat it, I pop it in the microwave for a few seconds, just to take the chill off. Then I heat the slice in the toaster oven. This method crisps up the crust nicely. And for me, that's key. I can't stand a soggy crust. At all.

With a broken toaster, I actually thought, “Damn it. No pizza for lunch.” Then I eyed the cast iron pan on my stovetop. Hmmm.....

Like always, I heated the pizza in the micro for a few seconds and then I placed it into the lightly oiled cast iron skillet. BLISS!

The crust was wonderfully crispy. So crisp that you could hear it crunch as I bit into it. Wondering if it was a fluke, I tried again over the next few days. (We had friends over for pizza. I made too much. Leftovers are awesome!)

Now a new toaster oven sits on my counter. It won't be used to reheat pizza, I can tell you that. Here on out, it's all about a cast iron skillet.

Do you reheat pizza? Or do you love it cold?

How to Reheat Gluten-Free Pizza (Cast Iron Method)

1. Place pizza on plate. Cover with a microwave plate cover or plastic wrap. Heat for about 15 seconds.

2. Lightly oil cast iron skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Place slice(s) into pan. Heat over medium-high heat, about three minutes. (Time varies depending on how big the slice is.) 

3. Remove from pan and enjoy.
