We'll never be able to resist the temptation to eat the rest of our pizza the next day - it's an integral part of getting takeaway right?!

But what if we told you that there was a way to reheat your pizza to avoid it getting soggy in the microwave?

New Jersey-based TikTok star Tara Ippolito recently uploaded a video with the ultimate tip to share with her 1.2 million followers and said not to “knock it til you try it”.

Ditching the microwave, in the clip Tara places a pizza slice in a hot frying pan, adds a splash of water around it and covers it with a lid.

Loading…

After a few minutes, she lifts the lid to reveal a steaming hot slice, complete with a crunchy base and a cheesy top.

“A friend of a friend mentioned the hack to me around 10 years ago and I was immediately intrigued,” Tara said of the hack.

“I had to try it for myself and never use any other method now."

The clip has racked up over 2.7 million views and 156,000 likes so far with TikTok users stunned by the simple method.

And one person was so blown away they said they never wanted to eat fresh pizza again, commenting: "Confession: I would rather eat it this way than fresh".

"Omg this is what I do but once the water evaporates I add in a bit of olive oil to crisp the bottom," wrote someone else.

Who needs culinary school, eh?
