Oof, you got me there. I warm up pizza in the oven at 375 or on a griddle on the stove with aluminum foil tent over the top. When I microwaved leftover pizza, the crust got too chewy and soft for me. I like my pizza with a crispy crust.

Microwaves are good for stale bagels though. A few seconds in the microwave softens a stale bagel enough for me to slice it in half.

Before I used this method I used a piece of paper between each piece. Using this method I use a piece of paper for every two pieces. So that is how I am using less paper.

If I have two pieces left over, I use no paper.

Putting the pizza upside down, the next piece upside up, then paper, saves you a piece of paper for every two pieces. If you go upside up for all pieces, you use a piece of paper for every piece, except the last one. This method saves on paper.

I'll post more detail in the next tip.

I like using a washable plastic or glass container instead of zip locks to reduce single use plastic waste.

Aluminum foil can take advantage of this method also, you can wrap two pieces together stacked bread-to-bread.

Pizza dries out if left in the box. I find the toppings stay on the pizza and don't stick to the bottom of the container. If stacked toppings up, the toppings do stick to the bottom of the above piece. With bread-side to bread-side, there are no toppings to stick to anything. The wax paper, or parchment paper, keeps the toppings from sticking to each other.

This method minimizes paper usage by taking advantage of the bread to bread arrangement.
