I always use the "REHEAT" button on the microwave for leftovers, and let the microwave's brain decide for me.

Time will vary depending on the wattage (?) of your microwave.

For meat, I always use a medium setting, and increase the time accordingly. That minimizes the meat being gross (I hate meat reheated in the microwave)

I am glad you said this. Why is this so?

Good idea. Chicago-style isn't really pizza, so that's OK. Cackle.

Ah, OK. I have never used one. Probably never will, but it's good to know just in case I'm ever eating pizza with somebody who does have one.

Because the crust needs a dry heat to warm up properly, and the microwave doesn't provide that. It does not cook by dry heat.

Curiously, some people don't understand this, and that's why you hear stories of people doing incredibly stupid things like putting wet money in a microwave to dry it out and then finding ashes when they open the door.
