Toaster Oven that fits a 12" Pizza...So I can make Frittata
First, convection ovens cook quicker and more evenly compared to regular toaster ovens. Your pizza comes out quicker and cooks much more evenly. This is important for pizza, but if you are cooking something like cake and pies it is critical that you have even cooking.
The second reason I get a pizza oven is because it can fit an 8 inch pan inside. This allows me to make my favorite breakfast food, the frittata.
What is a frittata? I'm glad you're curious. I actually learned about frittata from a movie, called "Morning Glory." In the movie, Harrison Ford shares the secret to a great frittata. According to his character, Mike Pomeroy "The secret to great frittata is a very hot pan because that's what makes it...fluffy." Make sure you watch the clip below. He says it in such a deadpan manner, it is very funny.
Inspired by Harrison Ford, I decided to give it a shot. Mr. Ford is 100% correct. Frittata are amazing. They are very much like omelettes, but with the taste kicked up a knotch.
Basically, you start very similar to an omelette, but before it is fully cooked you put the pan underneath the broiler and cook it the rest of the way. So good, I plan to have one tomorrow morning. Cheddar and Bacon is my favorite, but you can include anything and everything. Leek, potato, spinach, mushrooms, different kinds of cheese, sausage - anything.
Frittata is worth the extra time to make, and I hope you will give it a shot in your home.

So droll, but very funny.
