How to turn old pizza into pure deliciousness using a waffle iron

I nominate Serious Eats' J. Kenji López-Alt for fast food genius of the year for this clever hack: turn a leftover pizza slice into a delicious snack using a waffle iron. Oh gods of the junkgourmandize, simplicity can be truly beautiful and succulent indeed!

Just add toppings, fold into a triangle, trim the excess, and put into the waffle iron until it's done. Of course, this can be as tasty as your imagination allows.

Here's a quick recipe I'd like to try: add some extra strong cheese (like an idiazabal or manchego curado), some chorizo or finely sliced bacon with a pinch of Spanish Pimentón de la Vera, a few drops of extra virgin olive oil, some freshly sliced tomate and some black pepper.

old pizza? I can't remember the last time I had pizza so old it required tweaking.. I mean, if it isn't moldy i just shove it in my mouth. If it is moldy, I scrape the mold off, then shove it in my mouth. Heat = optional. This is a waste of time and energy. Save the planet, eat your leftover pizza cold like a normal starving bachelor. THINK OF THE CHILDREN.
