Tips & Warnings
- If you are watching your calories and want to use pepperoni, put the pieces on a plate with a paper towel, and microwave for 20 seconds or so to get the excess fat out of the pepperoni.
- Pizza can be a healthy meal when used with plenty of vegetable toppings.
- Adjust the heat so that the crust doesn't burn before the cheese melts. It may take you a few tries to "get it right," but it's worth experimenting with it.
- Don't overload the pizza with toppings. It will make the crust soggy.
