Oven Reheating Guide For The Perfect Pizza


How To Reheat The Best Pizza In BloomingtonOven Vs. Microwave


First and foremost, you’ll want to reheat your pizza in the oven. While popping it in the microwave might be easier, you’re going to sacrifice the texture of your pizza going this route.


Microwaved pizza crust tends to be soggy, chewy, and tough to bite through, so you’re not going to get that satisfying crunch you love so much about a fresh Bucceto’s pie.


Prepare The Baking Sheet


Before preheating your oven, take a baking sheet or pizza pan first and line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Once lined, you may choose to lightly grease the surface to avoid sticking, but this step is optional.


Preheat The Oven


Once you have your baking sheet ready, pop it into the oven and preheat it to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. After your oven has been preheated, it’s time to prepare your pie.


Why Refrigerate Leftover Pizza?


When you have leftover pizza, keeping it in the refrigerator rather than on the counter ensures its integrity in two ways. First, it keeps your pizza safe. Toppings like sausage, pepperoni, bacon, ham, and others aren’t counter-stable, and leaving your pizza out for long periods makes it prone to spoiling.


It’s always best to refrigerate your leftover pizza immediately after you’ve finished eating. Second, it helps to keep your pizza from losing its texture in any way or getting soggy or stale.


Carefully take your heated baking sheet or pizza pan out of your oven, and place onto it the number of slices you wish to reheat. Pop it back into that 375-degree oven and set the timer for around 5 minutes.


Reheating Time


Usually, reheating pizza will take around 5 to 7 minutes, but it depends on your personal preference. Start with a shorter time and check for desired doneness to avoid overcooking.


If you want your pizza a little crispier, go toward the 7-minute mark. If you prefer your crust to be a little softer, keep it around 5.


Once the timer goes off, you’ll have the best pizza in Bloomington hot and ready for you to indulge in. No leftovers? No problem –– click here to order for delivery or pickup.
