    If you have ever nuked, Left over Pizza, you know it's kinda mushy.
    In the past some times, I would heat up the oven ,nuke the pizza for a minute or so then put it in the oven for 5 to 7 min, and would be nice and crispy on the bottom, now I nuke it, then just put it on a piece of heavy duty tin foil, on the stove top for 3 to 5 min depending how hot it is.
    No need to heat oven, you can pick up the foil and put it on a plate,with out burning fingers, I only heat up a couple pieces at a time. Mmm, Mmmm, good :)

    This works well on the kitchen stove in a skillet as well.

    Never thought of this! I have made pork n beans but never re-heated pizza, never even occured to me - brilliant!

    I like to cook potatoes on the coals in my stove. Roll them in oil and kosher salt, double wrap them in foil and throw them in. During Hurricane Sandy, it was everynight, white or sweet, they are always good!

    I guess I'm the only one that thinks left over pizza should be eaten cold? I think it tastes terrible warmed up.

    In college we pizza, hot or cold with yellow mustard. Not sure why we put mustard on it but don't knock it until you try it, it is way better than it sounds, I swear. Something about that vinegary taste of the mustard with the tomatoey taste of the sauce, YUM! My husband leaves the room, he just won't even look at it :) i've got some left over pizza I made last night, I may just have to heat it on the stove and bring out the mustard!

    Sounds good. We have had sliced potatoes and onions with butter, salt and pepper. Layer them and wrap in foil and throw it on the coals. It was part of a camping meal a friend showed us.

    I'm a cold pizza fan...Actually room temperature! Back in the partying days when the Domino's guy would have to come in the apartment and wake me up so I could pay (30 minute delivery is way to long after 30 beers), I would just leave it on the table and finish it when I woke up!

    Left over pizza is just breakfast in the morning . . . best served up cold.

    Ya, leftover Chinese chicken wings and pizza are best cold. I do sometimes put pizza in the toaster oven- just heat on a low setting and it heats through

    Blasphemy! At least use a good spicy brown >>

    All kidding aside, that's a lot better topping for pizza than the ranch dressing or blue cheese that I see so many folks (of which most don't need any extra calories) smearing all over a perfectly good slice.

    BTW, thanks for sharing the pic of the goods unlike someone else I know ;)

    Homemade pizza?

    Yes, homemade pizza, dough from scratch, baked on an old but well seasoned pizza stone. The ONLY reason there is yellow mustard in my house is for hot dogs, using it to smear on pork to hold my rub before I smoke it and pizza. Everything else is stone ground. Heck, i own a $30 jar of Pommery French stone ground made from some 18th century recipe. Worth every penny if you are a mustard lover :)

    Perhaps a trip here would be worth it if you like mustard . . . been around for over 100 years and four generations.

    Yeah, I know but there are very FEW things I splurge on, first being only Cocoran Jump boots, second being Le Creuset cookware and lastly, weird food/spices/condiments. Everything else is mostly from flea markets and auctions. Simple folk and proud :) i only have this iPad because my bosses sent it to me as a thank you gift for a training program I developed. I'm not into gadgets either, unless they are for cooking/smoking (meat)/wood cutting :)

    Pommery mustard used to be $10 but thanks to our government, for whatever reason, they now tax the heck out of it so importers pass the tariffs on the consumer. Its in a pretty cool earthen crock though. It's all over the web if you want to get one yourself. My favorite way to use it is a teaspoon or so mixed into fresh steamed green beans, YUMMY!

    It felt sacrilegious, but I liked it! Wife and one of the boys ate it that way too. Seems very strange, but it is surprisingly good. That second piece, and the the 3rd unseen one, received "French's Treatment" as well.

    Who woulda thunk it ;lol Thanks!
