If you have leftover pizza sitting in your refrigerator, you may only think that you have two ways of enjoying it again—either cold for breakfast or heated up in the oven or microwave as a fast lunch or dinner. The good news is that there are a variety of creative ways that you can eat that uninspired pizza from last night.
Before you throw the cold pizza away because you're tired of it, transform it into a completely new dinner that your whole family will love. Not only will you be saving money and not wasting food, but you'll be able to whip up the new dish in no time since a large portion of it is already made.
Here are some ways to turn yesterday's pizza into today's meal:
1. Cheesy Pizza Casserole
The great thing about casseroles is that you can make them using almost anything in your pantry or refrigerator, cold pizza included. To make this hearty meal, start by cutting the pizza into squares and placing them into a casserole or baking dish. Combine three eggs, a cup of milk and a 1/2 cup of chopped onion and pour it over the pizza.
Sprinkle as much shredded mozzarella cheese as you'd like over the top and season with Italian herbs, such as dried or fresh basil or oregano. Bake in a 375-degree oven for about an hour, or until the cheese is bubbly.
2. Pizza Lasagna
For this fast and delicious meal, use your favorite lasagna recipe, but substitute the leftover pizza for the traditional noodles. Simply cut the cold pizza into strips and layer it into the lasagna in place of the noodles.
You can reduce the amount of cheese you typically use since the pizza is already topped with it, or stick to the recipe for an extra-cheesy treat.
3. Pizza and Eggs
Leftover pizza and eggs makes a hearty weekend breakfast or even a filling lunch of dinner when you're short on time. Begin by cutting the cold pizza into small squares or strips and placing them into a mixing bowl.
Add as many eggs as you'd like, along with shredded mozzarella, cheddar, or any other type of cheese, and mix well with a spoon. You can add a tablespoon or two of milk if the mixture is too thick.
Next, pour the mix into a hot frying pan or on a griddle, and cook until the eggs are cooked through.Share

Hello, my name is Deena. Welcome. I would like to share information about starting a new restaurant. When I was in my teen years, I worked at a restaurant that had just opened its doors to the public. The food was great and the service was superb, but something was missing. The owner had to look deep into the restaurant experience to find the problem that was preventing true success in this industry. I will talk about all of the areas that restaurant owners must perfect to make their vision a true success. Please feel free to visit my site anytime to learn more about opening a successful restaurant.
