There’s nothing quite like enjoying a delicious pizza pie with friends and family. Not only is pizza a tasty treat the day you buy it, but with just a few easy alterations, it can also make for a versatile leftover meal. For inspiration, here are three fun and tasty suggestions for what to do with your remaining slices.
How to Make the Most of Your Leftover Pizza
1. Enjoy It for Breakfast
There are plenty more ways to enjoy a pizza breakfast than by eating the cold leftovers from your fridge. In fact, pizza pairs well with eggs for a hearty, protein-rich start to your day. For a tasty spin on traditional scrambled eggs, break up your leftover slices and scramble them together with the eggs in a pan. Or, kick things up a notch by baking a tasty frittata with pizza leftovers, eggs, cheese, garlic, and spinach in a pan.
2. Make Pizza Lasagna
If you’re in the mood for Italian but are seeking something a bit more substantial for dinner, consider pizza lasagna. Instead of using lasagna noodles, use the leftover pizza slices as the structure of your lasagna. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and spreading marinara on the bottom of baking dish. Then, layer the pan with pizza slices and add ricotta, mozzarella, and any other desired ingredients and bake for about 30 minutes in a covered pan. After thirty minutes is up, remove the covering for an additional ten minutes to crisp the top and enjoy!
3. Make a Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwich
If you’re looking to step up your grilled cheese game, why not use your leftover pizza slices? Simply take two slices and add additional mozzarella or cheddar to the center. Then, place the pizza sandwich into a pan or panini maker and cook each side until lightly browned.
