At times instead of a burned pizza, your pizza can come out evenly cooked. This could either be because you’re not properly preheating the oven and there’s no temperature retention inside the oven. To avoid such a situation, make sure you preheat your oven and that the pizza maker is hot before you put the pizza in.
