Almost everyone loves pizza. This could cause you to order too many pies, which may leave you with several leftovers you don’t know what to do with. If you don’t feel like reheating your slices, there are many ways you can transform them into tasty, interesting foods. Here are a few ideas to inspire your next creation.
How to Get Creative With Your Leftover Pizza
1. Toss Into a Salad or Soup
You can use leftovers as tasty alternatives to croutons. Cut the slices into small squares, drizzle them with a bit of olive oil, and pop them into the oven to bake until crispy. Alternatively, press them in a panini maker or waffle iron for a few minutes. These pizza squares will elevate your salad or soup game.
2. Have It for Breakfast
A slice of pizza already has two breakfast staples—bread and cheese. If you want something filling to start your day, you can incorporate your leftovers into scrambled eggs.
First, tear the pizza into smaller pieces. In a bowl, whisk two eggs, grated cheese, a splash of milk, and a pinch of salt. Cook on a pan until soft and fluffy, then top with herbs, the pizza bits, and a dash of hot sauce.
3. Turn It Into a Grilled Cheese
Why not take your pie up a notch by turning it into filling, savory sandwiches?
You can do this by sprinkling shredded mozzarella or cheddar over a slice, then topping it with another. Then place the sandwich on a hot griddle or panini maker for a unique spin on the classic grilled cheese.
4. Create Appetizers
Transform a pie into bite-sized nibbles you can serve at a pizza party. First, roll the slices around mozzarella sticks and bake them in the oven until the cheese melts. Serve with marinara sauce on the side for a wacky take on mozzarella sticks that will take way less effort.
