For the connoisseurs of frozen pizza out there, what do you prefer?

A. Put the pizza in the oven and then turn it on.

B. Preheat the oven and then put the pizza in.

B because that's what you're supposed to do or otherwise it would take too long
if you did A.

Chiggy your basic logic could use some work.

A should be slightly quicker because in A the pizza will be in an oven which is heating up and thus be absorbing heat. In B the pizza sits around doing nothing until preheat is finished. Preheating takes time and perhaps the pizza slows it down slightly but it's also sitting absorbing heat the whole time it's in the oven.

This may affect the outcome I've never tested. I imagine if the food was better quality than a frozen pizza, throwing it in a hot oven means less time spent at moderate temperatures where proteins are not being denatured and malliard is not occuring but moisture is being lost or whatever. Because this isn't high cuisine it doesn't matter. B is very slightly quicker so that's what happens when I'm cooking a pizza for myself.

You let the oven pre-heat before putting the food in.

DiGornio is the only frozen pizza that is halfway decent.

But why are you torturing yourself? Go buy a real pizza, fresh from the oven of your local shop.

A would cause you to wait until it's preheated, then go back and put the pizza in the oven.

If you just put it in there, just add the time it takes to preheat to the total time.

I've done both. No difference in quality.

Also, frozen pizza can be fine, Amy's Pizza and Trader Joe pizza are both great. Better than most delivery options.

The trick to really good frozen pizza is to preheat the oven with the pizza pan inside of it. Then when the oven reaches temp the pan is also hot and you just toss your pizza on there and BAM crispy well cooked crust. It ensures you don't end up with burnt edges and a soft doughy middle.

I think we've all had this question, for like, everything we put in our ovens, OP.

They can't give you directions on the box during the preheat phase cause the box don't know how fast your oven heats up and shit.
If you can figure out the correct time on your own for A, then it will save you a couple minutes. Nothing insane though. It's a matter of if you give enough of a shit to test out your pizza a few times to figure out how long you should keep it in if you plan on putting it in and starting the oven at the same time

I know for an American it's totally normal to eat fried chicken with waffles, even though at the same time it's impossible for them to grasp the fact that in many areas of europe people put corn on pizza. Even though it's been discussed on /nom/ every single year, at least 5 times each.
I love how shocked you can be at everything you've not heard about before, but never question anything about yourselves. Don't worry, It's just due the fact you've never been to a place with a different native language than your own. You've never experienced different cultures, architecture, history, people, nothing. You don't even care. You just think it's weird "foreign" stuff. Just your very own, self contained bubble of 300million trump supporters.

I'm not shocked just disgusted. I've had corn on pizza before and it was a deeply unpleasant experience. America isn't so backwards that corn on pizza is somehow deeply shocking and unheard of. You see it on mexican pizza fairly regularly and you see it on other specialty pizzas as well. I can think of three places in a 5 mile radius that offer it as a topping. It doesn't challenge my whole world view it's just not a texture that belongs on pizza. It brings too much moisture to the party and gets stuck in your teeth.

Way to assume a whole bunch of bullshit from a 4 word shitpost though. I don't need to question a whole lot about myself to imagine that a corn kebab frozen pizza wouldn't be something I'd want to eat. I'd bet fair money I could find something similar in my local supermarket freezer.

>I know for an American it's totally normal to eat fried chicken with waffles

Literally every frozen pizza gives you the direction to place it directly on the plan. You pick it up with your hands because you're a goddamned man and cannot feel pain.

A (cowboy style cooking) is the answer OP. Just put in the pizza, set to 420 F, and *check on it regularly[/*]. People always forgot the last step when cooking cowboy style.

Best frozen pizza is Red Baron. I'm a pizza expert, trust me. That guy who liked Digornios and Tombstone definitely just succumbed to marketing. Red Baron has no commercials because they don't need them.

I can't fucking understand why people don't READ the instructions. My girlfriend sometimes microwave her pizza ffs. When she does put it in the oven, she puts it in straight away with the heat on maximum.

Pizzas are frozen in order to preserve their freshest state. Having a pre-heated oven ensures it is cooked at it's optimum freshness. Why is this hard to understand? If you really wanna wait 5 minutes less, for an inferior pizza, feel free to do so but I will think you are the literal scum of the fucking earth if so, you freaks.

I want to know what the hell frozen pizzas you eat that are nice enough that this "optimum freshness" isn't pretty marginal at best. However if it's an unfrozen fridge pizza that's a different kettle of fish. A good non frozen pizza, the sort that cooks in 10 minutes in a pre heated oven, now pre heating does make a noticeable difference there because it's pretty fresh anyway.

Freezing it doesn't preserve the freshness as much as give it a single big hit but then stop it getting any worse for a much longer period of time.

Microwaving the pizza though, that's fucked up.

Aye, it's fair simple. Though that said the last time I made home-made pizza I prepped the pizza before putting it onto a cookable surface. The end result was that we had to scrape the prepared pizza onto the dish and then cook it. It was still tasty but it was a big messy ball of dough, cheese, sauce and vegetables. We were stoned as fuck so it was probably more hilarious and tasty than it should've been.

But next time I will definitely remember to do it right. Homemade pizza is actually so good you can taste it with your balls

Instead of worry about how hot the oven is why not try alternative methods for cooking the pizza? Like would it be possible to deep fry a thawed out pizza? Or to pan fry it? Why do we have to do this just by one set of rules. Whose to say the oven is the only place for pizza? That's just unfair.

Pepperoni pizza with pineapple on top is delicious but it's one of those sketchy things to enjoy in private or with trusted friends since ordering it in public can get you dirty looks.

Try it, Vincent. Order a pepperoni & pineapple pizza, have it delivered, talk to the delivery driver through a mail slot and have them leave the pizza on your doorstep, wait for the coast to be clear, open the door, take the pizza, close the door, retreat to your bedroom, close the blinds, turn off the lights, light a candle or two, and dine in on that dank pepperoni and pineapple pizza, my friend.
