Take-out pizza. I love it and you probably do too. It’s one of those “even when it’s bad its good” goodies. I know you can think of some of the other favorites that fall into that category, but this is a food blog and we’ll limit our discussion to pizza. The thing about take-out pizza, even bad take-out pizza, is this: it’s so good that if you’re smart you always order the extra-large pie. Because the only thing better than bad take-out pizza is bad leftover breakfast pizza. If you’ve ever eaten a cold slice of pizza for breakfast, then you know what I’m talking about.
Of course standing at the fridge (with the door wide open) scarfing down leftover cheesy-carbs may be a time-tested hangover cure, but it’s not quite the sort of “bring on the day” meal I’m talking about.
Resuscitated Breakfast Pizza
Besides, I did order that extra-large pizza and it’s so deliciously bad that I just can’t let the morning-after portion go to waste. So, taking a cue from Mathieu Palombino of Motorino Pizza in Brooklyn, I’ve learned to resuscitate breakfast pizza. This simple trick will take your breakfast pizza from bad to quite possibly the best meal you’ll have all day. GREG
