The thought of eating cold, leftover pizza the day after your Pizza Hut delivery might not sound appetizing. While your first thought to reheat the pizza may be to use the microwave, you may want to think twice. The microwave can make crust chewy and tough. Instead, try using an oven to reheat your leftover pizza and retain its flavor and consistency.

Things You'll Need

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Place leftover slices of pizza on your cookie sheet. Space them two inches from each other to allow even cooking.

Slide the cookie sheet onto the center rack of the oven. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until the cheese on top of the pizza is bubbling.

Remove the cookie sheet from the oven, using your oven mitt.

Use your spatula to remove the pizza from the cookie sheet. Serve immediately.


  • For a crispier slice of reheated pizza, line the cookie sheet with parchment paper beneath the leftover pizza slices.

  • If you plan to top your pizza with crushed pepper and grated Parmesan, add these before placing the leftover pizza in the oven.
