That is how I heat up leftover pizza when I don't want to turn on the oven or broiler (but I don't use any non-stick spray). For the first few minutes, I use low/medium heat and cover the pan so that the cheese and stuff heats up. Then I remove the lid and turn the heat to high for a few minutes until the crust is heated as well but crisp and not soggy. Works for me.

That is exactly how I discovered 'the trick.' I didn't want to use the oven to reheat the pizza, so I placed it a fry pan with lid to melt the cheese, removing the lid so it didn't get soggy. When I slid the pizza onto the dish, the reheated version was virtually exactly like the crispy crust I wanted originally.

Now I just use the frying pan method on the crust whenever I make homemade pizza--I don't have to use the lid usually because the pizza is still relatively hot and the cheese doesn't need to be melted

I got the non-stick foil idea because the cheese ran over when I was reheating a slice and I had a pan to clean up, so using nonstick foil all you have to do is lift off the pizza and crumble up the foil--no pan to clean.
