Pizza is one of those foods that never gets old—the gooey, doughy comfort food always hits the spot! While you can order a pizza or make one from scratch, sometimes it’s just easier to cook a frozen one. But, frozen pizzas aren’t always the tastiest. With these hacks, you’ll forget the pizza came from a box!

Use an Air Fryer

Not only do air fryers transform leftovers, but they’re also great for making frozen pizza crusts crispier and it prevents them from becoming soggy. Air fryers are best for heating individual slices or personal pies.

Grill Pizza Outdoors

Grilling pizza adds new flavors, giving frozen pizza the taste that it came from a wood-fired oven. What more could you want?

Invest in a Pizza Stone or Cast Iron Pan

The best pizzas usually come from a specially designed pizza oven that can reach upwards of 800 F. While this isn’t possible in a traditional oven, you can retain heat with tools like pizza stones or cast iron pans.

Use a Waffle Iron

Cooking pizza in a waffle iron is totally trending and to avoid a mess, sandwich the pizza between two sheets of parchment paper.

Add Toppings

Elevate frozen pizza by adding your favorite toppings like pepperoni, pineapple, mushrooms, and garlic. Make the crust more interesting by adding olive oil, a melted garlic butter mix, or cheese to it.
