We think we can all agree that one of the best things about ordering pizza delivery is having leftovers. There’s nothing better than knowing you get to eat delicious pizza again tomorrow or even for the rest of the week. Does anything cure a hangover better than cold pizza? Has any food ever been so transformed by a mere change in temperature? But have you ever gotten tired of choosing between hot pizza and cold pizza? We’re here for you. Presented below are a few unusual ways to eat your pizza leftovers. Spice up your life.
Pizza croutons: Using a pizza cutter, slice your leftover pizza into bite size squares. Reheat on a baking sheet in the oven until cheese is bubbly. Top tomato soup or Caesar salad with pizza croutons.
Pizza quiche: Now that you’ve got your pizza cutter out, you can also cut up your leftovers into bit-size pieces to add as a filling to things like quiche. Eggs, mozzarella, and pizza pieces in a warm, buttery crust sounds like a pretty good breakfast to us. OR just scramble pizza pieces into your eggs for a quick and delicious meal.
Pizza waffle: One way to change up your pizza leftovers is just to find an interesting new way to reheat them. If you have a waffle iron, you can use it to make yourself a gooey pizza waffle. For best results, fold your leftover slice of pizza so the cheese and toppings aren’t exposed to the surface of the waffle iron. Heat until waffle-y and melty.
Pizza Panini: Don’t have a waffle iron? Maybe you’re more of a panini press kind of person? Make yourself a pizza sandwich. Using two slices of pizza as your bread, toppings side in, assemble a sandwich. Maybe add some tomatoes and a few slices of turkey or ham. Once your masterpiece comes together, press it in a panini press until melted and warmed through. Dip in Italian dressing or leftover marinara sauce for maximum tastiness.
Toppings Extravaganza: Bored with your pizza choices from yesterday already? Take this opportunity to go wild with toppings and dipping sauces. Add vegetables, barbeque sauce, extra cheese, or even fruit to your pizza before reheating it in the oven. Voila! You’ve got an entirely new pizza and maybe even a new favorite topping. Curry and banana pizza, anyone?
