Recycling Your Fridge Pizza Into a Brand New Dish

Mar 09, 2016 07:30 PM EST | By Rhea Penaflor (


From time to time, we just love pizza!  It's a fastfood that gives you a no-brainer decision when you're too lazy to choose what food to eat.

Pizza is a flatbread generally topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an oven. Pizza is sold fresh, frozen or in portions, and is a common fast food item in the United States and the United Kingdom. Various types of ovens are used to cook from a variety of pizza dish. Several similar dishes are prepared from ingredients commonly used in pizza preparation, such as calzone and stromboli.

Here are some helpful recipes on how to recycle your cold pizza into hot, brand new dish:

1. Pizza patty melt

Because we know pizza and cheese are likely the only edible things you have in your fridge at any given moment (other than a solitary can of beer from a Halloween party three years ago), all you need for this recipe is pizza, mozzarella and provolone.

2. Pizza casserole

All recipes shows you how to take a baking dish, mozzarella, a third of an onion, eggs, and a few slices of leftover pizza and turn it all into a breakfast that looks like you spent time on it.

3. Pizza bread pudding

On the surface, turning leftover pizza into bread pudding may taste awful if there are no more toppings.  You can add toppings if you like. 

4. Pizza croutons

Ninety-nine percent of Americans who aren't on a diet agree that salad is a waste of a meal. But thanks to our pizza crouton recipe, you can successfully choke down an entire bowl of lettuce and other veggies if you dice up the remnants of last night's pizza dinner and throw 'em in there. Or just drop them into a bowl of tomato soup!

5. Pizza calzone
You can wrap the dough around the toppings and just place it inside the oven.  You can also add more toppings or flavors if you like.
You can always be more creative in making brand new dishes coming from your recycled cold pizza!
