After storing the leftover food in the refrigerator, it is very important to heat it properly before eating it. Eating refrigerated food directly can lead to severe indigestion and even food poisoning. Now a person may think that reheating is a simple process as one has to simply put the food in the microwave or on the top of a pan and heat it before eating.

* Reheating By Frying

It is not compulsory to reheat a pizza or garlic bread in a microwave or an oven only. One can do it on a pan as well. A simple way to do this is to take a piece of pizza or garlic bread and put it on a medium-heated nonstick pan. One may put some light butter or oil on the top of the pan for some extra moisture. Now put the piece of pizza or garlic bread on top of this butter and add a little bit of water to the sides for moisture restoration. Flip the pizza or the garlic bread from both sides to cook it evenly. 

* Reheating In The Oven

Reheating pizza or garlic bread in an oven is quite a hassle-free process. The only thing one has to remember is that they do not have to put a lot of slices of either garlic bread or pizza in the oven at once. Just put 2 to 3 slices in one go and place a cup of water just next to the slices of pizza or garlic bread. Now microwave them for intervals of 10 seconds on full power for 30 to 40 seconds. Eat them immediately after reheating.

* Reheating In A Regular Pan

If one doesn't have a nonstick pan at home then it is very much possible to reheat garlic bread and pizza without letting them stick to the surface. One has to wrap the pizza or garlic bread slice in foil paper and then put it inside the pan and heat it for 10 to 15 minutes on low heat. One can go for a deep pan and cover it from the top to create an oven-like effect. If the pizza is really dry then before keeping it inside the foil paper, one may drizzle some water droplets on the top for moisture restoration.

* Reheating In Air Fryer

Reheating in an air fryer is a great way to restore the crunchiness or crispiness of garlic bread. One has to simply set the air fryer temperature to 180°C and then place the slices of bread in the basket. Now it has to be heated for 4 to 5 minutes. One must keep checking their garlic breads in between to make sure that they don't get burnt. One may brush some extra melted butter on the top of the garlic bread before heating them in the air fryer basket or even a few tablespoons of water would work.

* Reheating In A Toaster

Reheating garlic bread or pizza in a toaster is a quick and easy way to reheat the food as it simply takes two minutes. One simply has to keep the toaster oven and heat it for a few minutes before putting their pizza or garlic bread on top. One may also sprinkle some water droplets on the top of the toaster just before putting the garlic bread slices or pizza slices on the toaster. A toaster not only works well in reheating pizza or garlic bread but one may also reheat chicken nuggets or other such snacks. 

* Reheating In Oven

The right way to reheat a pizza or garlic bread in an oven is to 1st preheat the oven to 180°C. Now one has to sprinkle some water on the top of garlic bread or pizza if it's extremely dried out. If the texture is all alright, then one may put it as it is. The garlic bread or pizza has to be covered in foil paper to protect the crust from burning or becoming flaky. The foil-covered pizza should be reheated for 5 to 15 minutes depending upon its size. The same thing goes for garlic bread. If one wants a nice crispy texture, they can remove the foil  for the last 2 to 3 minutes of reheating in the microwave
