How to Reheat Domino’s Bread Bowl [Tips for a Crispy Crust]
Reheating Domino’s bread bowl can be a little tricky. Done wrong, you may end up with a soggy crust and dried up sauce. However, when done right you can re-experience the full taste, flavor, and crunchiness of what the bread bowl tasted like when hot and fresh.
You can reheat a Domino’s bread bowl using an oven, a skillet on a stovetop, a microwave, a grill, or even a toastie maker. Most of these methods are quick, taking less than ten minutes. Each method has its own unique hacks to keep the crust crispy and not overcook the sauce.
Read on for the best ways to reheat your Domino’s bread bowl using different kitchen appliances.
Reheating Domino’s Bread Bowl in an Oven
A standard oven is one of the most common kitchen appliances used for reheating Domino’s’ bread bowls at home. It is especially handy when you’re reheating a whole piece of bread bowl. A downside to using a standard oven is that it takes much longer than the other methods. To reheat in an oven:
- Place your bread bowl on a pizza stone. An alternative would be to use a screen.
- Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This takes about ten minutes.
- Cautiously drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top of the bread bowl to keep the pasta and sauce moist.
- If the edges look well done already, you can slightly butter around it to keep the crust from getting burned.
- Place the bread bowl inside the oven for one or two minutes.
Reheating Domino’s Bread Bowl in A Microwave
The microwave is by far the most popular way to reheat Domino’s bread bowls. It’s quick and convenient, and works well even when reheating only a piece of the bread bowl. For best results:
- Place a half-filled cup of water in a glass and put it inside the microwave. This redistributes the microwave energy allowing the crust to heat up in the same proportion as the pasta and sauces.
- Set the temperature to high.
- Set the timer to 30 seconds.
Reheating Domino’s Bread Bowl on a Skillet
One of the best ways to reheat Domino’s bread bowl is to place it in a skillet over a stovetop. Here are the exact steps to take:
- Place your non-stick perforated skillet over a stovetop on medium heat.
- When the skillet is hot, sprinkle a few drops of olive oil.
- After a few seconds, turn down the heat to low medium.
- Place the bread bowl and gently turn it around until the bottom is nice and crispy.
- Add some cheese to the top if you prefer.
- Add one to three tablespoons of water to the skillet and cover with a lid for one minute. This will heat up the cheese, pasta and sauces while keeping the bread moist.
- Turn off the flame and keep the lid on for a few seconds longer. Don’t keep it there too long or the crust will burn or become too hard.
Reheating Domino’s Bread Bowl in A Toastie Maker
Using a toastie maker (also known as a sandwich maker or a waffle-iron) is another quick way of reheating your Domino’s bread bowl. Also, making toast out of your bread bowl can potentially introduce new flavors.
- Cut the bread bowl into an even number of pie-shaped pieces.
- Pair up the pieces.
- With each pair, put one piece on top of another with the crust facing outwards and the toppings facing each other.
- Place the doubles in a toastie maker and press them like you were making regular sandwiches.
Reheating Domino’s Bread Bowl in A Toaster
Another method is using a bread toaster instead of a toastie maker. In this case you will need heat-resistant non-stick toaster bags.
- Divide up the bread bowl into pie-shaped slices.
- Put each piece into a toaster bag.
- Put the piece inside the toaster, bag and all, like you normally do with slices of bread.
- In a minute your reheated bread bowl piece will pop out, ready for eating.
Reheating Domino’s Bread Bowl on a Grill
Using a grill isn’t a very popular choice. Unless you already have a grill going for preparing something else, setting it up may be too much of a hassle. Also, if your grill is outdoors then the weather might interfere with your cooking.
However, if you already have a grill going, it’s super easy to reheat your Domino’s bread bowl on it.
- Set your grill to medium high heat.
- Allow a few minutes for the grill to warm up sufficiently.
- Place your bread bowl on the grate.
- Let it sit for five to ten minutes.
