How to Bake or Heat a Pizza in a Convection Toaster Oven

Having a convection toaster oven will speed up cooking time! Convection toaster ovens work by means of a fan that circulates hot air around the oven. By making the air circulate all around the oven, your food gets heated evenly and without cold spots. Several toaster ovens come with two settings; heat or convection bake. So, when you’re baking a pizza or just reheating pizza slices, you can choose whether you want to use the convection or not. Both settings will work to get your pizza steaming hot. It doesn’t take long to heat pizza, so the convection setting may be a little too much for this easy task. But, if you want to bake a pizza, the convection setting will come in handy!

Step 1 Preheat the toaster oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit using either the bake or convection bake setting.

Step 2 Put the pizza or pizza slices onto the rack inside the toaster oven and close the door.

Step 3 Bake the pizza for between 5 to 10 minutes. It may take less time on the convection setting. Watch the pizza closely. Take it out when the crust is brownish and the cheese is bubbling.

Step 4 Place the hot pizza or slice on a plate and let it cool for a few minutes before eating.


-Careful! Use a spatula or tongs to take the pizza out of the oven to avoid burning your hands.

-Not all convection toaster ovens have the same features. Read the instructions that came with your appliance for the most effective way to bake or heat a pizza.
