Do you prefer to microwave or toast your leftover pizza? I will alwasy use a toaster oven because I ahte how the crust gets in the microwave. I'll even eat it cold once and awhile. What about you?

I don't like to microwave the pizza. It doesn't taste like an outdoor one!

I actually do both but I prefer leftover pizza to go in the oven. It taste just like it came from the pizza shop. It may not be exactly the same as just fresh out of the pizza oven but it is as close as it is going to be.

I usually just pop mine in the microwave. That's the fastest way for me. And I need fast with all the kids running around here. LOL

I like how it comes out of the oven better, but usually I am too lazy to wait for it, and just microwave it instead--then eat it really quick before the crust turns stone-hard!

That sounds ok, geez it seems like all pizza eaters are busy and in a hurry. If I am cooking leftovers even I take my time and do it right.

I just pop mine in the microwave. My kids and husband eat it cold. I do not like cold pizza though.

I don't have a toaster oven, nor have I ever toasted leftover pizza, but now I'm curious about it lol. Usually I just heat up the leftover pizza in the microwave or eat it cold.

I usually microwave my leftovers to get them hot again. Though I think they do come out better when they're reheated in a toaster oven or normal oven. In my house it's more about speed though, and it's done faster in the microwave.

Generally, I eat left-over pizza cold. For some reason, I like cold pizza. If not, I'll re-heat it in the microwave for a few seconds. Any longer and the crust becomes too hard to eat! I'd never thought of toasting it though, that's a really good idea :)

Oh toaster oven for sure, it is a must, the microwave will do in a pinch but truly I enjoy the hot baked oven taste.

oven toaster for left over pizza then also with other foods with crust or for pie 'coz microwave then may harden the crust when the foods cool after few minutes. microwave is great for saucy or kind a moisty foods.

I love eating pizza especially cold pizza, however I do prefer it when its reheated in the oven as compared to the micro as it remains nice and crispy as opposed to soggy. The micro does not heat things up properly and the food tends to get cold very quickly.

i would prefer an oven toaster than a microwave. I've read an article about using the microwave which is very unhealthy.

I really prefer to heat left over pizza on oven toaster and NOT microwave. Microwave changes the texture of a pizza. It makes it unpleasant to eat, unless you're gonna eat it right away. If you have an oven, just heat your pizza there and not microwave. Plus, you'll have lesser radiation around the house!
