Specifically, the pilot light is out on my oven. And the diagram on the back of the stove is absolutely no help in figuring it out, which means I'm going to have to find a user's manual for this stove somewhere online. And given that I'm renting from a slumlord and the oven is approximately 17 years older than Christ, I'm not certain I'll have much luck with that.
But the stove top still works! And I forgot to go grocery shopping yesterday and am hungry now with only a frozen pizza to my name. But hey, ain't no rule sez you can't make a pizza not in the oven.
So join me, won't you, as we endeavor to make ourselves a frozen pizza without the aid of an oven.
First, I figure it's best to use a non-stick pan. Don't want my pizza sticking to that pan. It's also my larger pan, which turns out to be a fortunate coincidence, as the pizza just barely fits in there.
|Pizza pie in a pan? Mamma mia!|
Anyway, I put some olive oil in the pan to prevent sticking, and figure a low temperature is probably the way to go.
|Kind of an oven|
|It doesn't look much better not blurry|
|Hey, it's a pizza!|
But Was It Any Good?
Eh, for the most part. It's still cheese on sauce on (burnt) crust. I mean, as the old saying goes, even the worst pizza is better than being repeatedly kicked in the crotch. Something like that.
Anyway, stove-top pizza, official verdict: acceptable!
