How to Reheat Little Caesars Pizza (All The Different Ways)

Little Caesars Pizza is a popular chain restaurant known for its affordable, hot and ready pizzas made with fresh ingredients.

However, there are times when one cannot finish the entire pizza in one sitting resulting in leftovers.

Reheating pizza is a science; it can either result in an unsatisfactory outcome or be the icing on the cake.

In this post, we will discuss all different ways to reheat Little Caesars pizza in your kitchen without losing its crispiness, taste or texture.

How to Reheat Little Caesars Pizza

The Oven Method

The oven method is perhaps the most reliable way of reheating pizza and a go-to method for many people. Here’s how you can reheat your Little Caesars pizza through baking;

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Remove any toppings that may burn easily like veggies or meatballs.
  3. Take out any left-over slices from last night’s dinner from the fridge
  4. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes if you want it easy-soft reheated, or bake it up to 12 minutes if you want crispier results.
  6. Remove from oven once cheese is melted and bubbly.

Having stored your leftover slices correctly (i.e., not leaving them on counters overnight) ensures they stay fresh longer during this reheating process.

The Microwave Method

This method is another quick fix when craving Little Caesars pizza as soon as possible without investing much time within just two minutes of heating away! Here’s how:

  1. Remove all topping remnants that could weigh down the crust.
  2. Put pieces in a microwave-safe dish
  3. Put a cup of water next to the dish to ensure even heating,
  4. Microwave at high heat settings starting off microwaving for just about 30 seconds per slice depending on wattage – as soon as bubbly and sufficiently warm, remove from microwave.

Pro tip: To avoid getting a soggy crust when reheating pizza in the microwave, cover it with a damp towel.

The Toaster Oven Method

If you enjoy crispy and crunchy crusts with melty cheeses, then the toaster oven is your best bet for Little Caesars leftover pizza. Here’s how:

  1. Preheat your toaster oven to 350-degree Fahrenheit.
  2. Remove any toppings that may burn easily like veggies or meatballs.
  3. Place left-over slices on an oven-safe tray
  4. Bake for between five to ten minutes depending on how crispy you want it; typically five minutes of heating will suffice for a soft fresh taste & feel whereas ten gives desired toasted appearance and texture.
  5. If cheese isn’t entirely melted, continue baking until cheese melts as well.

Pro tip: Using a rack can aid in achieving a crispy crust during preheating slices when using the toaster oven instead of placing them directly on the bottom baking tray.

The Skillet Method

The skillet method provides an alternative solution if you don’t have an oven but still want that perfect crispiness while reheating Little Caesars pizza leftovers. Here’s how:

  1. Place your cast iron skillet over medium heat
  2. Arrange leftover slices on top of skillet and leave them uncovered as they are baked through.
  3. Allow crust to develop into ideal crispness through cooking on medium heat at low heat very gradually cooking down slice evenly throughout adding cover intermittently towards end goal.
  4. When cheese starts melting and getting bubbly, remove from skillet

The Grill / Barbeque Method

A BBQ season comes not just with outdoor parties but also offers solutions such as barbequing re-heated pizzas at home for convenience’s sake; too alongside endless options available in any complex roast chicken or sandwiches filling dreams!

Here’s how;

  1. Turn your grill to medium-high heat
  2. Wrap your leftover slices in a foil cover, allowing them to cook evenly and maintain moisture during the process.
  3. Grill frozen or refrigerated leftover slices for around five-to-seven minutes on low to medium heat with foil-cover. Allow cooling after this step and sprinkle cheese shreds on top of the pizza slice.
  4. Put leftover slices uncovered over indirect flame for two-three mins sufficiently melting any added cheese

Tips For Reheating Pizza

Reheating pizza can be fun if done correctly. Here are some quick tips for reheating Little Caesars pizza:

  • Preheat your oven or toaster oven before placing your leftover pizza in it.
  • Microwave one slice at a time instead of one big piece as it will result in uneven heating
  • Add droplets of water on the top of pizzas before placing them inside nuker (microwave) or oven to steer clear from dryness.
  • Store the leftover slices correctly in an air-tight container with a paper towel underneath the bottom lid
  • Portions and label storage options also exist long term keeping solutions when utilizing these quick-fix methods is not enough.

With different reheating methods at disposal, enjoy cold leftovers too warm and crispy results again without losing any flavor!
