Why You Should Skip the Baking Tray When Making Frozen Pizza

If your frozen pizzas always end up baking unevenly, there’s one thing about your baking routine that needs to change. Ditch the foil and baking sheets, Insider advises, and place the pizza directly on the lowest oven rack. But before you do that, poke a few holes in the bottom of the crust to help the steam escape and prevent any softening.

Of course, extra high heat is also a great way to ensure your frozen pizza is perfectly crispy. Forget to follow the instructions on the back of the box. Turn on your oven to the highest heat setting (usually 550°F) and bake, says Taste of Home. Just know that the pizza will cook much faster, so keep an eye on your pie.

If you’re still looking for ways to add some pizzazz to your pizza, add ingredients. Chopped veggies, extra protein, toasted nuts, herbs, beans, extra (and fancier) cheese like Fontina or Gouda can all work wonders – you also crack an egg on your pizza halfway through cooking . Conversely, top with fresh ingredients like arugula, speck, peaches, burrata or a drizzle of honey, infused olive oil or balsamic glaze. As for that pizza crust, Allrecipes recommends brushing it with a little oil and a sprinkle of garlic, cheese, or even any bagel seasoning!
