Tweet of the Day, …Can This Be TRUE? This Would Change EVERYTHING edition.

I will have to try this on Wednesday.

Well, I can’t try it tomorrow because I don’t have any leftover pizza, of course. So I would have to first buy a pizza, eat some of it, and save the rest for later. Thus: Wednesday.

  1. I’d assume it would work, I still think I’d prefer to just use the oven, and a cookie sheet.

  2. Yes it works. And then you have to clean up yet another pan. I just put mine in the oven. Right on the middle rack. 8 minutes. Warm. Crispy. Yummy. And if some gets where it shouldn’t… well, that’s what I got a self-cleaning oven for.
    And amazing of that guy to stretch a 10-second video into 2 and a half minutes.

    1. I’d rather spend 45 seconds cleaning a pan than waiting 10 minutes for the oven to warm up and 8 minutes for the pizza to heat.
      In fact, my variation on this video is even faster. Put the gas on high. Put the pan on and let it heat for 30-60 seconds. Put the pizza on, then add about 2-3 tbsp water directly to the pan surface. It won’t mush up the crust because it will immediately bubble and steam. Put on a cover and leave it for about 30-40 seconds. The trapped steam cooks the cheese and toppings while the crust gets crispy. Remove the cover. This will remove any condensed steam stuck to the top and the remainder will dissipate. Leave it about 15-20 more seconds and done.
      Meanwhile, the oven is still warming up. You could probably finish eating and cleaning before the oven pizza is even out of the oven.

      1. You may want to invest in a toaster-oven… the heating cycle is significantly faster.
        Also, a toaster oven is much easier to clean up – pop the “crumb tray” out, knock the crumbs into the trash, scrape off any melted cheese, run it through the dishwasher, then .. pop it back in.
        That said, unless you just turn on the lower element, you can still get squishy crust. The reason the pan thing works is the heat forces moisture out of the crust …

        1. You’re right, Mr. Cat. 45-50 secs in the microwave and then 1-2 minutes in a hot toaster oven. Tasty, crispy crust, quick cleanup.

          1. That’s worked for me, too. Maybe not as well as the pizza started out when it was freshly-hot, but it beats just nuking it by a big margin.
