Better Than Yesterday Pizza: Printer Friendly Version!

Better Than Yesterday Pizza

You will need a heavy cast-iron or non-stick skillet with a tight fitting lid.

Ingredients per slice:

  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil (you can substitute canola oil, but olive oil has the best taste here.)
  • 1 slice cold, leftover pizza
  • 1 teaspoon water

Place a heavy cast-iron or non-stick skillet over medium high heat.  Add the oil to the pan and swirl until hot and evenly coated.  Place slice of pizza, topping side DOWN in the pan.  Allow to cook for one minute (longer for more charred bits).

After one minute, carefully slide a spatula under the pizza and flip crust side down.  Add the teaspoon of water and immediately place the lid on the pan.  Cook for an additional minute.

Remove the lid and cook for one to one and a half minutes or until all water has cooked off and the bottom crust is crispy.  Transfer to a plate.  If desired, sprinkle with crushed red pepper plates to complete the pizzeria taste and experience!
