Storage

You can store leftover breakfast pizza in an airtight container, zippered bag, or wrap in tin foil for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

Try freezing your pizzas for up to 3 months by wrapping individually in plastic wrap and placing in a large ziploc freezer bag. A delicious way to have ready made breakfast for months in advance!

How to reheat your breakfast pizza

To reheat, wrap pizza in a paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minutes, and in 30 second increments until warm. For frozen pizza, microwave for longer increments.

If you would prefer to reheat your breakfast pizza in the oven, simply preheat oven to 350 degrees and warm for 5 to 10 minutes until desired temperature. For frozen pizza, allow to thaw on counter for 10-15 minutes before placing in the oven, or add additional minutes for baking.
