Kitchen Hack: How To Reheat Pizza Without Making It Soggy

There’s never a wrong time to eat pizza be it breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night snack. Sometimes when we are so full that we are not able to finish the pizza (which rarely happens). What do we do? Next morning we heat that pizza in the microwave and eat it. It is still pizza but something’s missing, right? The microwave gets the pizza to be soggy which makes the crust dry.

Yes, the ideal way to reheat pizza is to put it in the oven but if you are a bachelor you will not have access to serious kitchen appliances. Besides you really have time for the oven to preheat and after that for the pizza to be ready?

Well, don’t want to have you guys sorted. With this one simple hack, your topping would not get dry and even your crust would not get chewy. You can thank us later.

Well here it goes, all you have to do is place a microwave-safe glass of water right next to your pizza and heat it up for 45 seconds and BOOM your pizza looks and taste identical to how the pizza guy delivered it to you.

There’s no legit scientific explanation for this but there’s a general consensus that the glass of water reduces the amount of energy that goes to the pizza as the water provides an additional mass which slows down the heating process in the microwave.

So, Next time when your pizza looks stale and you still want the same quality of the reheated pizza, just put a glass of water in the microwave. You’re welcome!
