  • MMMM....right on the rack will give you a nice and crispy crust. You can line the bottom of your stove with foil if you're worried about some drippy cheese.....I always make ours that way....the best!

  • I put foil on the bottom rack sometimes and the pizza on the top rack. What I've been doing lately, because I don't like the mess, is to heat the pizza pan up and then quickly slide the uncooked pizza onto it.

  • Strange, the pizzas I usually buy give you directions for baking it with or without a pizza pan.

  • I have foil on the bottom of my oven to prevent drips from baking onto the oven. I just slide my pizza right onto the rack. Or I use my baking stone.

  • We eat a lot of frozen pizza and they all always go on a foil-lined pan - I would never put any pizza directly on the rack. My brother & SIL do and their oven is an awful filthy dirty mess and makes their house a stinky smoky mess when they make more pizza.
