From the best pizzerias in America to a pie from the frozen aisle of your local grocery store, there’s just something about a steaming hot cheesy piece of pizza. Most people would agree that a slice is best fresh out of the oven, but leftovers are having a moment too, especially with Domino’s new hack for reheating.

Say goodbye to slices haphazardly thrown in the microwave to become nothing more than a soggy mess. Prepare your next meal with pride by reheating pizza in the microwave for 30 seconds alongside a half cup of water, Domino’s Australia said in a blog.

Disclaimer: The chain says this is the easiest, but not most reliable trick, and that crispiness is not guaranteed, but it’s worth a shot. Other, more trustworthy methods for reaching a crispy base, fluffy dough and melted cheese include reheating via the oven, hot pan or air fryer.

This will make a pizza sandwich that is crunchy on the outside and melty with toppings on the inside. If that peaks your interest, wait until you see what you can do with a pizza on the grill.
