Pizza Croutons Recipe

Total Time:  15 minutes
Yield:  18-20 croutons


  • 6 slices leftover pizza
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • Stack two cooked pizza slices on top of each other with toppings facing each other. Using a pizza wheel or knife, cut 1-inch-wide strips, following the straight edges of the slices. Cut the strips crosswise into 1-inch squares.
  • In a large nonstick pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pizza squares, and cook until cheese begins to melt, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook just until the crust is crispy, about 2 minutes more. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  • Serve warm in soup, salad, or a game of "Chubby Bunny."
