More Instant Pizza in The Cuisinart Oven Central

This Cuisinart Oven Central has become one of my favorite GO TO appliances.  It will do so many things so well, and so easily, and without constant monitoring.

A bit of olive oil and some pizza sauce, topped with little bits of this and that on a slice of sourdough bread starts up an almost free, but still most delicious, lunchtime feast.  Hint:  keep some cooked Italian sausage bits, and a pillow pack of pepperoni on hand, and you are all set to add scraps of veggies and fresh tomatoes to make this treat in a flash.  When you are making something with sautéed veggies, make a few extra and just pop them into the refrigerator to make something like this the next day.


Free lunch step 1


Add some cheese (your choice:  this is pepper cheese) . . .

Free lunch step 2


And let it melt.  A bit longer in the oven would have browned the cheese, but the hunger pangs got the better of us, and we gobbled them down like this.  I sprinkled some of my fave – smoked paprika – on top, and that was VERY nice.

If you like a more garlicky ambience, sprinkle on some garlic powder, or put some crushed garlic underneath somewhere.  I’ve seen jars of prepared garlic bits in the store, so that be useful for this purpose.

Free lunch step 3 finished

These are more filling than they look.  I’m pretty sure that little one on the right went into the refrigerator after lunch.

  4. I am a huge fan of the Oven Central. I ordered one as soon as I was made aware of it by one of your blog posts. I use it as much or more than the regular oven and stovetop.
