Sure, pizza is great. But if you’ve ever had a soggy Sunday morning, you know that leftover pizza is sometimes even better. The sticky cold cheese and gooey dough are the cure for a hangover. And yet it still gnaws somewhere that you can no longer turn your pizza slice into a fresh pizza. Or is it? Tip: make a pizza sandwich!
Believe us: you want this.
Pizza, only better
A pizza sandwich is everything a pizza is – only better. The crust will be extra crispy, the cheese extra stringy, and you can even add extra toppings to your pizza sandwich. More toppings = more better.
Now we hear you thinking: but I can still put my leftover pizza in the microwave, right? Or the furnace? But no. That may heat up your pizza a bit, but it will never feel really fresh – you know that too. With a sandwich maker or waffle iron , on the other hand, you can turn it into a completely new fresh snack.
How do you make a pizza sandwich?
You can find plenty of pizza sandwich recipes online, but most of them come with bread, tomato sauce, and cheese . Also tasty, but in this case you only need a piece of leftover pizza. It doesn’t matter if you had it delivered last night or put it together yourself – it all works.
After you have topped your leftover pizza if you wish (cheese, vegetables, salami …), all you have to do is fold the pizza in half. You can of course easily fold a square piece in half. If you have a slice , it’s best to fold the tip to the top left corner, and cut off the portion on the right (and eat it right away). If you have a large sandwich maker, you can even put two points on top of each other
Then close the sandwich or waffle iron, wait a few minutes and tadáá: your pizza sandwich is ready. By the way, wait long enough until your cheese has not only melted, but the cheese on the side has become crispy as well. Then it is extra tasty.
