  • That idea is pants-on-head bad. It sounds like it came from a slow cooker.

  • Breads for a slow cooker sounds kinda pointless.
  • The 'Food' tab isn't invisible, you just haven't paid attention.
  • I thought for sure it would be Chicago style lasagna pizza

    Other than your oven being broken, the only time I can think of that you don't have access to an oven is when you're using your oven to make dinner.
  • It is a terrible idea because all of the great things about pizza require a dry heat.
  • I thought steamed pizza was more of an Albany thing.
  • You could use an air fryer. Or in other words, a REALLY small convection oven.

    Or you could just order a damn pizza from someone who has the time and space to make it well. Heck, I hear that they can even deliver pizza today in less than an hour. The wonders of this modern age...
  • There's an invisible Food tab? Is it to the left or right of the visible Food tab?
  • I was willing to read TFA, and then I got to the last part...about reheating leftover pizza in the microwave, or the oven.  Taken together, those two invalidated any previous argument.  Reheating pizza in the microwave?? No, just no, we've been over this before.  Using the oven???  If you have access to an oven, why the fark do you  use an InstantPot to make your pizza in the first place?

    If you don't have access to an oven, try a grill, a CI pan on a burner, or even a (Camp) Dutch Oven.  I've had success with all of those.  Harder to find these days, but reflector ovens can also do a great job.
  • I'm using my tiny 1.5 quart slow cooker to make honey sriracha chicken for tonight's "something over rice" dinner. I use slow cookers for a lot of things that require low, slow, moist heat.

    Pizza requires none of those things.

    Outside the USA, ovens are not necessarily standard. Japanese houses and apartments are ovenless. Most people here don't own one at all, and even foodies only have an oven/microwave combo that is too small for anything bigger than a 2 lb chicken.  I've never seen a full size oven in a home here.
  • Fails without sous vide pizza.
  • I could also theoretically cook a small pizza in my coffee pot with a bunch of effort and disappointing results.  Why would I do that?

    I've got an oven, toaster oven and pizza cooker as well as gas and charcoal grills on my deck, all of which would be better for cooking a pizza.  Why the hell would I try to cook a pizza in my crockpot?

    I have heard of exactly ONE full size oven on a forum for foreigners in Japan many moons ago. They did a kitchen remodel and spent a ton importing an oven range from America. The install went ok but it never worked properly, would short out all the time and blow the fuze box. They brought in electricians but it kept happening and eventually became too much expense. They threw it out and ended up with a big range-size gap in their kitchen.

    I was years without an oven. Dark times. I was sooo happy when I got one and my Japanese friends didn't understand why until I started bringing my breads and cookies to work. Pretty sure my husband fell in love with me the moment he tried my cheesecake.

    But, yeah, they're stlll tiny.  I bought an 8 pound turkey last year and had to cut it in half spatchcock style and cook it one side at a time. Sooo good but time consuming.

    Which makes me wonder, who is buying all those huge ass birds at Costco? I guess folks who have a turkey roaster?

    A few years ago I bought two turkeys and took them to my friend's restaurant and he cooked them up in his full size professional oven. We had a hell of a Thanksgiving party that year. Though it is kind of disappointing when Japanese people say they can't tell the difference between turkey and chicken.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I'm about to throw a wild yeast sourdough boule in the oven. By the way, I bought two bottles of honey (orange blossom and coffee) from Tomiz and let me tell you, that shiat is de-licious!

    I did that one year. Asked a little Brazilian shop. So good.

    In Japanese folk's defense the only time they really eat turkey is when the supermarkets sell smoked legs. And once something is cured and smoked who they hell can taste the difference?

    I wish Costco would sell plain turkey breasts. I'd roast them just for the sammiches. But they only sell the smoked breast and hell if I wanted a ham I'd buy a ham. Plus they cost about the same as a whole bird.

    I'll remember the honey. My husband likes Costco clover but we won't be stepping foot in a Costco or large shopping center if we can help it.
  • It's the time of year when the thermometer hits 110 pretty regularly, so I try to avoid using the oven.

    A lot of my meals are done in the slow cooker even when they wouldn't need to be.

    I have a couple of kids, so we eat pizza pretty regularly.

    I could totally see doing this for the kids, especially if my wife and I were having something we didn't want to share.

    I haven't done this, non-ironically, since the first Falcon 9 landed USA! USA! USA! USA!
  • More tips on slow cooker pizza for my fellow Earth Humans: I recommend you use your hands to lift the pizza to the mouth parts of your face and masticate until a deglutitious bolus is formed. If you do not have access to your hands, feet or other lower appendages may be used. Make sure to only place the pizza in your oral cavity as other orifices will not suitably extract the nutrients
  • Instant Pot pizza > slower cooker pizza

    Most of us already do this. I mean, I don't see how this is different than using the sink sprayer nozzle to wash off the grease.
