Don’t you hate it when you try and reheat a pizza in the microwave and it turns out soggy and floppy?
Say goodbye to sad leftovers forever with this handy kitchen tip.
Simply place the pizza on a plate, put it in the microwave and add a cup or glass of water. cook it on high for 30 seconds (or more depending on your microwave) and it will be cooked to perfection.
The cup of water helps the base stay crispy, still allowing the cheese to melt.
But how does it do it? Without a cup of water, the pizza absorbs more of the microwaves being emitted, causing it to heat up quickly. This vaporises the water molecules in the pizza, causing them to permeate the crust and make it soggy.
A cup of water in the microwave actually absorbs some of the microwaves, meaning the pizza heats slower and more evenly and causing less water to vaporise, resulting in a crispier texture.
