How Can I Make Pizza in a Microwave Oven in 4 Easy Steps
Admin Jan 05, 2022 15:43 pm

Which food comes to mind when you are bored with everyday meals? Or when you want to have your friends over for a hangout? Obviously, you’re thinking of pizza. But can you make pizza at home? The answer is yes! Making pizza in microwave ovens is a fairly easy task.

Firstly, what you need is a convection oven. If you have a grill oven or a solo oven, you cannot make a pizza in it as these microwaves do not have pre-heating functions. So ensure you have a convection microwave oven and follow this four-step process to satisfy your belly:

Step 1: Preparing pizza dough

We start with the bas(e)ics first. Pizza dough or the base can look a bit complicated but is quite simple to make really. All you need is all-purpose flour, oil, salt, yeast and water. First up, add the yeast in 30 ml of warm water and mix it till it dissolves well. Now, take all-purpose flour in a big bowl, add the oil, salt, and yeast solution, and knead it until smooth.

Fermentation

Add the dough to a bowl coated with oil and make sure the dough is covered with oil evenly by rolling it over. Once it’s done, cover the bowl with a lid and keep it at room temperature for an hour. You can leave it out a bit longer during the winter season. After the hour is up, you can see that the dough has almost doubled in size. Now, roll it flat in a cylindrical shape with the help of a rolling pin until it resembles a pizza base.

Take a baking dish and apply half a tablespoon of oil to it. Place the pizza base on it and make a few slashes over its surface so that it can soak the cheese in it. Once your pizza base is ready, you are one step closer to making a pizza in a microwave!

And if you are impatient and don’t want to go through this entire ordeal, you can just buy a ready-made pizza base from a store near you!

Step 2: Preheating the oven

Now comes the reason you need a convection microwave oven to make a pizza. Preheating is an important part of baking anything in a microwave oven because it needs a pre-defined temperature to begin the baking process.

For your pizza, you can preheat your oven to 392°F or 200°C (check which temperature unit your microwave follows). To do this, click on the Microwave/Grill/Combi/Convection option and turn the knob to set the convection temperature. Press the start button twice - the first press will confirm the temperature and the second press will start preheating the oven. You do not need to set the time here as the buzzer will automatically sound off when the preheating temperature arrives. This is when you must put your food into the microwave oven, which brings us to the next step.

Step 3: Choosing your favourite toppings

After baking the pizza dough, you should keep in mind the type of pizza you want to make and the toppings you wish to add. Prepare a list of ingredients such as tomatoes, bell pepper, olives, baby corn, mushrooms or meat. Furthermore, pick out the sauce and cheese to spread on the pizza base.

Once you are set on the toppings, chop them into finer parts or an appropriate size. Here, you can follow two methods - add cheese over the sauce and then add the toppings or add the toppings first, followed by cheese. But, if you are a cheese lover, you could say yes to both! Make sure your toppings are spread evenly over the surface in the right quantity and then add a layer of grated cheese over it.

Step 4: Baking the pizza in a microwave

With that, your pizza is ready to hit the microwave. Once your microwave is pre-heated, carefully place the pizza inside and set the time to 20 minutes and press the start button again. After your 20 minutes are up, a delicious pizza awaits to be taken out of the microwave and served hot!

Note: Always use microwave-friendly gloves while making pizza at home in the microwave.

Of course, this is all a moot point if you do not have a microwave at home to make a pizza. But Voltas Beko has you covered as we have the perfect microwave ovens for a five-star pizza Michelin like you! Find the best microwave oven at Voltas Beko and make a pizza and loads of other dishes at home.

What is a Convection Microwave Oven?
Admin Jul 13, 2021 07:25 am

Have you been wondering what’s all the buzz about a convection microwave? Why does everyone consider it special over a normal microwave? It’s because microwaves have come a really long way since their inception in the 1970s. They no longer just do that task of “heating food”.

A modern convection microwave can bake, roast, grill, and more.

What is Special About a Convection Microwave?

A convection microwave combines the best of two worlds—of a microwave and a convection microwave. Many home cooks have to make a choice between a microwave and a convection microwave due to cost and kitchen space. Furthermore, modern homes don’t have a lot of space to accommodate a full-fledged oven.

So, what’s special about a convection microwave? It brings two amazing products into one, so you don’t have to choose between the two.

What is the Difference Between a Convection Microwave and a Regular Oven?

Why should you have a convection microwave oven over a regular oven? Because it is better than a regular oven; here’s how.

Convection MicrowaveTraditional Oven
Can preheat, bake, grill, boil or roast food Has a set function of bake or roast
Is compact and flexible in placement Is quite hefty in size and requires sufficient space
Can handle multiple dishes of varying types Used for baking or roasting special dishes
Food can be cooked quickly Food needs to be cooked on a slow flame
Powered by electricity Requires a gas connection

How Do I Choose a Convection Microwave?

Here are a few parameters to help you pick the right convection microwave:

Size

Convection microwaves come in the size of 20 litres to 35 litres. The size you pick depends on the space in your kitchen and the dishes you’d like to cook. For example, if you’d like to grill a 12-inch pizza, then a larger microwave would be ideal.

Features

Would you like a microwave that can preheat food? One that has auto-cook capabilities? Or, one that has a child-lock? Convection microwaves come with a variety of features so see check which one suits your needs. For example, if you like to grill food, you want a convection grill microwave.

Budget

Budget is going to play a big factor in picking a microwave. Convection microwaves come in the range of ₹10,000 to ₹25,000.

The good news is that Voltas Beko has a range of convection microwaves for you to choose from.

What Should Not Be Cooked in a Convection Microwave?

While a convection microwave is versatile, there are some foods you should avoid cooking in it.

  • Avoid using cooking oil as it damages the components of the microwave
  • Eggs in their shell, including hard-boiled eggs, should not be put in the microwave as they can explode due to the heat
  • You may also want to avoid cooking dishes that are batter-based like soufflés

What are the Advantages of a Convection Microwave?

So, is a convection microwave right for you? It has certain advantages that you may want to avail of.

Snug Fit

A convection microwave can be no larger than a cardboard box. It does not take up a lot of space in your kitchen, you can mount it on the wall, or place it in the corner.

Multifunctional

Need to heat water quickly? Or, want to reheat food? Or, you want to grill a sandwich? Microwaves have amazing multifunctional features, allowing you to cook a large variety of cuisine with them.

Affordable

The starting price of a traditional cooking oven is ₹50,000. Compare that to the starting price of a convection microwave is ₹10,000 and the advantage is quite obvious. Add to that, using a convection microwave won’t send your electricity bill through the roof.

If you love cooking, a convection microwave has to be part of your kitchen. Voltas Beko has many to choose from so you can always find something for your kitchen.

The size of the microwave you may need depends on the number of people living in your household. The larger the family size, the bigger the size of microwave you will need. This is because your microwave oven needs to have the capacity to cook the food needed by everyone in your home properly. If you live alone or just two people, you can opt for a compact, mid-size microwave oven, while for a family of four and more, it would be best to choose a full-sized microwave.

Microwaves range in capacity size of 20 litres to 30 litres. 20 litres is perfect if you just want to reheat food or make small food items like popcorn. However, if you want a microwave that handles regular cooking like roasting meats, you want a 25+ litre microwave.

Select the Microwave Type

Kitchen microwaves come in 3 types:

  • Solo – Perfect if you want a microwave to just reheat food
  • Grill – Grill microwaves are the perfect alternative to having a full-fledged oven in your kitchen
  • Convection – These microwaves are a one-size-fits-all – so when in doubt, you can’t go wrong with this type

Choose the Features

A basic microwave does the task of making your food dish or beverage hot. However, today’s advanced microwaves are packed with a ton of features such as grill, defrost, and melt. Many higher-end microwaves also come with pre-set heating options depending on the food you’re making.

How much do I spend?
