How To Reheat Pizza In A Microwave:

A microwave is one of the most versatile kitchen gadgets used to reheat food anytime. But it can also make your food soggy and tasteless. To prevent your pizza from losing its crispiness, follow these steps every time to reheat it in a microwave.

  • Place your pizza on the microwave-safe plate and cover it loosely with a damp paper towel to prevent a soggy crust.

  • Microwave the pizza for 30 seconds or until it reaches your desired temperature levels and the cheese is bubbly hot.


If you want to avoid using a damp paper towel over your pizza, make use of another moisture source – a cup of water!

  • Put your pizza on a microwave-safe plate and place it in the microwave.

  • Then put a half-filled cup of water next to the plate of pizza.

  • Heat the pizza for about 30 seconds or until it crisps up the crust and makes the cheese gooey.

  • Serve hot!

How To Reheat Pizza In An Oven

Perhaps the most efficient way to reheat pizza when you have a lot of time onyour hands - make your day-old dish crispy and gooey using an oven.

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C and then line a baking sheet with aluminium foil.

  • Once preheated, place the pizza on the sheet and pop it into the oven for 8-10 minutes. This would ensure your pizza crust is crispy and the cheese is super gooey.

  • Remove the pizza from the baking sheet carefully and serve hot!

How To Reheat Pizza In An Air Fryer

Yes! You can easily reheat pizza in an air fryer and have it just as pipping hot and fresh as you bought it from the store. Depending on the power of your air fryer and how big the basket is, you may want to reheat the pizza in batches.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 190°C and place the pizza slices in a single layer in the basket.

  • Let the pizza slices heat for about 1 to 2 minutes. Baking time may vary depending on the intensity of your air fryer, but make sure not to reheat the pizza for more than a couple of minutes to get a crispy crust and gooey cheese.

  • Remove the pizza from the air fryer and serve hot!
