Love My Magic Chef

This is the second pizza baker that we have purchased. Previously, we purchased a pizza baker that spun around. That worked fairly well, too, but I prefer this Magic Chef pizza baker.

Cleanup is easy, too. There is a special pan that is under the pizza to catch drippage, and it is easily pulled out and washed with soap and water. Wait until it is cooled so you don't burn yourself. Safety first!

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 1 cooked pizza


  1. Open the box of pizza. Discard the plastic wrap from pizza. Add additional ingredients if desired: sliced olives, sliced mushrooms.
  2. Pull open the pizza baker door, place frozen pizza on the rack. Push door closed. Plug in the pizza baker. Set timer to 20 minutes.
  3. After a few minutes, pull open pizza baker door and check your pizza. If cheese is beginning to melt and brown in the back corner, take a knife point and rotate your pizza so that the melted cheese in the back corner is now in the corner closest to you.
  4. Continue baking until the center cheese is melted. From this point, you can continue to bake your pizza until your cheese is the desired color of browness.
  5. Caution: if you leave your pizza in too long, it will burn, and perhaps catch on fire. The pizza will be hot. Wait to cool before consuming. Safety first!

How Pizza Is Created

Frozen Pizza Vs. Homemade

Now, didn't that video look yummy? Well, we're not baking one from scratch. We are using a pre-made frozen pizza by Red Baron.

There are lots of frozen pizza varieties available in the freezer section of your grocery store. I personally like the Heggies pizza's the best. These Red Baron pizzas have a good sauce. You will find that some frozen pizzas do not have a flavorful sauce.

You may also find that you like certain ingredients that are not on your frozen pizza. We sometimes slice green olives and place them evenly across the pizza. We have also opened small cans of mushrooms and scattered them across the pizza. Mushrooms will make your pizza a little bit wetter when cooking, so cook extra to dry them.

Plug In Your Baker

There have been times that I get carried away with baking the pizza. I put the pizza in, I set the timer, I walk away, and then, a while later, come back to check the pizza and it looks the same. Frozen cheese, frozen meat. No melt.

Yes. It is very important to plug in your Pizza Baker. Plug it in!!!

A Note

You can use a knife to cut your pizza, but I prefer the round, continuous pizza wheel cutter. This cutter is much more convenient. You place on the side of your pizza, and push down and guide across your pizza with a firm pressure.

Since you have your pizza on a flat, cutting board, you can rotate your cutting board to cut your pizza into wedges.

Cut across the middle. Then, turn your pizza and cut across the middle again, then, turn your pizza and split the four pieces into two pieces, so you end up with eight total pieces.

If you prefer your pizza into smaller pieces, you can start at one side of your pizza and cut long strips. Starting at the left, keep moving your pizza cutter a space to the right, until you cut strips across the entire pizza. Then, turn your pizza so that all your cuts are sideways, and cut across them. This will make small, bitesize pieces.
