Great work by all of you who participated in the first challenge. Everyone is encouraged to join in the fun!
For March, the theme is:
Whenever I make pizza I typically make 3 to 6 pies and freeze all but a few slices.
I have a brand new technique that I discovered recently which expands upon the
reheating leftover pizza techniques we've discussed in the past here in the forums.
Freezing & Reheating Leftover Pizza
* Store/freeze left over pizza in a plastic container, separating layers with
white plastic coated freezer paper.
* Microwave 1 slice of frozen pizza, (45 sec full power for 1 small slice)
until it thaws out and the edges begin to bubble. Pizza now has that
undesireable limp rubbery texture.
* To revive the texture and give the crust that fresh baked crispy bottom,
heat the pizza 3 to 6 inches above a medium gas flame using a hand held grill.
Heat only about 45 to 90 seconds to the desired crisp texture.
OPTION: Instead of a grill & open flame, you may use a teflon frying over medium heat.
You should find that the bottom crust is crisp and stiff as good
as or better than when originally baked. Enjoy!
NOTE: Odd thing, the blue medium flame does not
show in the pics below. I wonder why?
