How to Store and Reheat Pizza Cracker Bites

To store leftover pepperoni pizza crackers, place them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to five days.

Reheat in a 350°F oven or toaster oven for a few minutes until crisp and melty again. You can also reheat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds until melty, but they won’t be crispy anymore.
