    ok so i bought a papa john's pizza last week and only ate half of it that night. being poor, my options for dinner are low. so i figure i will heat up the other half (4 slices) in my oven because microwaved it tastes like crap. what are the best temps/times to do this?

    I did this about 3 weeks ago - 325 degrees on bake, let the oven heat for about 10 minutes, then stick it in for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is hot. The bottom will become slightly crispy but it tastes even better than it did straight from Papa Johns (imho)

    As long as you don't go over 350° F, you'll be fine hdeck. Enjoy your dinner, I'm reheating pizza tonight as well :)

    it's because the crust and bottom is crunchy. It makes the pizza 2X better

    what i used to do:

    put the heat your stovetop to medium
    put some butter in a frying pan
    put the pizza in the pan
    put lid on pan

    let cook until the cheese is melted

    make sure to keep it on medium to low, or the bottom will burn.

    it worked really well w/ deep dish pizzas that were already kind of oily on the bottom (like Pizza Hut). plus it's faster than heating an entire oven.
