Cooking tip

I have just invented a quick way to bake pizza – worth sharing, I hope.

1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.

2. Remove all wrappings from home-made frozen pizza and place on top shelf of oven. Set timer for 30 minutes.

3. After 10 minutes, check pizza. At this stage pizza should have disappeared from top shelf and will be in grill pan below, in several hundred small pieces.

4. Collect wits. Take a few seconds to realize that pizza has not in fact exploded. It is not supposed to go straight into the oven without a baking tray, this home made pizza has a much softer dough than the commercial ones.

5. Rapidly adjust timer to 15 minutes instead of 30.

6. When golden brown and cooked through, pizza can be removed from oven, still in grill pan. Using a metal scraper, transfer pieces (some as much as 1.5cm wide with a fairly soft consistency, others smaller and crisper) to a bowl and serve with salad of your choice.

Tip 1: When you have gained experience with the method you may wish to combine steps 3 to 5.

Tip 2: Line grill pan with aluminium foil, otherwise it could take days to clean.
