The Easy Frozen Pizza Hack That Will Save You A Lot Of Time

Frozen pizzas are a time saver. On those nights when breaking out the pots and pans to whip-up a family meal isn't in the cards, this take-and-bake option is just what you need. Brooklyn Pizza Lover notes that the average frozen pizza can be baked and on the table in less than 15 minutes. Not to mention, it's easy to throw on a few cut-up veggies, meats, or fruits if you want to give it your own twist.

But don't feel too badly about not making your pizza from scratch; you are not alone in your love for this convenience food. According to Donkey Credit, about 67% or two-thirds of us keep a frozen pizza in the freezer on a regular basis. And the frozen pizza industry is booming with this ready-made pizza pie option bringing in $4.4 billion in profits each year. And if you are wondering which frozen pizza pulls in the lion's share, DiGiorno can claim $1.2 billion of that pie.

Still, as convenient as this frozen food is, it doesn't come without its own culinary challenges. When it comes time to cook your frozen pizza, you've probably noticed one or two of them don't quite fit on your standard rectangular cookie sheet. If you aren't going to place them directly on the oven racks for fear of cheese dripping all over the bottom of your oven, we have a hack for you. 

It's all Geometry

Pizza lovers, never fear because TikTok has a game-changing hack that will not only help you solve this cooking conundrum, it will save you precious minutes the next time you fire up the oven to cook your favorite frozen 'za. According to get to text, if you are going to cook two pizzas in the oven at the same time, you want them on the same rack so they cook evenly. If you put them on two separate racks, one will likely be slightly burnt.

Instead, per the TikTok video that has been viewed over 343.7k times, you are going to need a sharp knife or a pair of cooking shears to cut your circular pizzas right through the center. This will give you two equal halves. The video then demonstrates how you line the straight line of each semi-circle against a wall of the baking sheeting to fit two whole pizzas. Rachael Ray is also a fan of this hack. So, the next time you are making two frozen pizzas, try this trick out and let us know what you think.
