How to Reheat Pizza in an Oven

Leftover pizza, properly handled, makes for a tasty, casual lunch. Heating pizza in the microwave can be messy and often results in a soggy, tasteless slice. Reheating it in the oven is definitely preferable. Pizza experts recommend using either a baking stone or parchment paper to reheat pizza in a traditional oven. It keeps the pizza crisp and best emulates that fresh-from-the-box taste.

Pizza Stone

Step 1

Put the pizza stone on the middle rack of your oven. Set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and preheat the oven for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Slide the leftover pizza onto the stone and quickly close the oven door.

Step 3

Bake the pizza for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and bubbling. Remove the stone with a set of potholders. Slide the pizza off with a spatula onto a plate and enjoy.

Baking Sheet

Step 1

Set the oven to a temperature of 400 F.

Step 2

Place a sheet of absorbent parchment paper -- large enough to hold all of your leftover pizza -- on top of a metal baking sheet. Place the pizza on top of it and put it in the oven.

Step 3

Let it cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese bubbles gently. The parchment paper will absorb the ambient moisture from the pizza crust, leaving it crispy and fresh.

Step 4

Remove the sheet from the oven with a set of potholders and slide the pizza onto a plate with a spatula. Discard the used parchment paper and enjoy the pizza.
