Default Reheating frozen pizza?

When I try to heat up frozen pizza that was made in the home or from the
pizza parlor it just doesn't work. It's sometimes too dry, sometimes
overdone, or the crust falls apart depending on the method used. How do you
all reheat pizza that you've frozen?

Thanks in advance,

Kent

Huh?!?!? No normal person freezes left over pizza, that's illegal.
Left over pizza must eaten for breakfast the next day, cold right out
of the fridge, never reheated... same as left over Chinese food. I've
never heard of anyone freezing left over take out... you're not right
in the head, Kent.

Can't disagree, but suppose one ordered a boatload of pizza for
a party and overestimated. Can't take it to the food bank...
unsealed food, so freezing it is an approach.

Freezing a fraction of a pizza you didn't finish, that would
be silly.

Anytime you freeze something that's been made and then go to defrost and
re-heat, it's never going to be the same.

If it's good pizza, defrost as usual, and place on a tray in the oven
just so's it'll heat through. No high temps, otherwise you'll end up
with a piece of wood.

Or, nuke it....... I stick it in a plastic bag if I'm doing this. The
crust will be a bit 'limp', but the toppings don't dry out.

Mind you, I rarely freeze leftover pizza.

It's usually eaten cold the next day for Breakfast, with a can of Pepsi
Max :-)

It's not without precedence to leave pizzas or pans of garlic/clam
spaghetti out on the counter overnight, only to resume dining at breakfast!

I find a toaster oven works very well for that job.

My good friend, who owns a pizza shop, recommends this!

I would put it out on the counter to thaw out and reach room
temperature, then broil it for 1-2 minutes to get the cheese melted.

I just put a slice or two on a microwave safe plate, then I nuke the
pizza on my microwave oven's medium setting for two or three minutes or
until the cheese is hot and bubbly. Works fine.

Oven/toaster oven re-awaken leftover pizza if you must have it hot. Nuking
just removes the moisture and renders it hard-chewy.

I use the toaster oven when I have to reheat pizza that wasn't good to
begin with. It helps. If it's a good pizza, then I like it cold for
breakfast.

How are there any pizza leftovers with TFM around?

Or leftovers at all (recalling the biggest bologna sandwich of all time)!

Use a Baking Stone....anything that's been fried or pizza, etc. crisps right
back up when you re-heat it on a baking stone.

Disgust is putting it mildly... you need new glasses... I've seen much

work, it doesn't bathe, it hogs what few resources there are all to
itself... any normal woman would have been long gone, LOOONG gone.
