There’s plenty of debate over what to do with leftover pizza – hot or cold – choose your team. One thing we can all agree on surely though, is that if you’re reheating leftover pizza, the air fryer is the only way to go.

All you need is two minutes at high heat to bring those old slices back to life. The results are far faster than the oven, and way more satisfying than the microwave which results in soggy, stodgy crust.

We’d recommend reheating the pizza one or two slices at a time, don’t overcrowd the air fryer!

We recommend investing in a kitchen thermometer like the Habor Meat Thermometer to ensure your food is thoroughly cooked. It's quick, under twenty bucks and it's waterproof - and hey - we get a small referral fee for any purchases.

  1. That’s a good idea to try reheating pizza in an air fryer. I recently got one of those, and I could see who it would work really well for pizza. I should give that a try next time I get pizza to see if it works better than reheating it in the oven.
