How to Bake Frozen Pizza

Updated February 21, 2017

Baking a frozen pizza is a fast and easy meal to fix. You can purchase frozen pizzas at the store or make your own and freeze it. The trick to a good frozen pizza involves baking the crust to a golden brown without burning it. The toppings should also cook within the same time frame.

Position an oven rack in the centre of the oven. Preheat the oven to 204 degrees Celsius, or use the temperature as directed on the instructions of the box pizza. Allow the oven to become fully heated.

Place the frozen pizza directly on the centre oven rack. Set the timer for five minutes.

Check the crust of the pizza after five minutes by lifting one edge with a fork. If brown spots appear on the underside of the crust, slide the pizza onto a pizza stone or pizza pan. If the crust remains white, wait another two minutes and recheck.

Place the pizza back into the oven. Wait another five to seven minutes and check to see if the toppings have cooked. Remove the pizza when the cheese on top has completely melted.
