Spoon UIUC teamed up with Food & Wine magazine to increase awareness about the problem of food waste on our campus. With a microgrant of just under $100, we created 10 original recipes to show you how you can transform leftover late-night eats into something equally amazing the next day.

As a college student, pizza is a main food group. We all get the occasion (or rather frequent) delivery at 3 am of a large cheese pizza for one. However, we sometimes get bored of the hum-drum leftover pizza heated up in the microwave. So instead of eating just any leftover pizza, why don’t you give it a little more PIZZAzz and make it an EGGcellent meal?

    Scrape the cheese and toppings off of the pizza. Discard the crust and bread part of pizza. Heat the toppings and milk in a small sauce pan over medium heat until they have combined to a soft consistency. Remove from heat.

    Whisk eggs, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and any veggies; for me, I added spinach and red bell pepper.
