At any rate I don't have a bowl so it doesn't make any difference.

Microwave ovens only heat water molecules - the bowl won't be directly heated.

Also, heat it then let the pizza sit in the microwave for 30 seconds to let the heat distribution even out.

Wow I did not know that, at least I learned something today! I will try all suggestions. Except maybe boil the pizza I'm not sure where you're going with that, hahaha. At least my roommate did not eat my pizza this time that was unfortunate...

The Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious song is stuck in my head.

And how the hell does supercalifragilisticexpialidocious meet spell check approval when the "hell" I just typed has to be keyed individually so it doesn't get changed to bell? Not that supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is a bad word, but I'm pretty sure it's used slightly less frequently than hell.

Have to take the T today and have learned that MBTA ticket dispensers will only take cash rather than credit or debit cards. That means I have to put more on the ticket than the exactly two subway fares I need.

I'm afraid this means the MBTA's been hacked, but so far they're not saying.

Reheat the pizza for longer but at a lower power setting. If you've been reheating on high (100% power) for 1 minute, try 2 minutes at 50% power, that way the pizza will heat up more slowly and the longer time will allow the hotter parts to distribute the heat to cooler parts.
