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. Oh.my.god. 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?
