That's right, you can take your leftover pizza and turn it into a yummy dessert, an idea that comes courtesy of Domino's Japan team. How does it work? Well, it all comes down to those beloved pizza crusts. All you have to do is take the crusts from the leftover pizza slices, fry them, and add some powdered sugar or icing. And there's nothing wrong with a little chocolate sauce to dip them in, too.

Have two slices left? Then this the perfect way to eat them both at the same time in one dish. All you have to do is break out the sandwich press or waffle iron for this one. You then layer the two pizza slices with the toppings facing inward and place it in whichever of these appliances. The end result is a sandwich that has a crunchy crust on the outside and melted, gooey cheese, and yummy toppings on the inside. Is your mouth-watering yet?
