Trying to bake a pizza
The instructions say to bake it on a pan but I dont have one big enough for the pizza to fit on. Would it be okay to just put it on the rack without the pan? how would that affect the baking time?
If thats not a smart idea, is it okay to put it on the pan with the pan upside down? lol. It has a small lip on the inside so the pizza would sink down, but if I flip it upside down, it would lay flat, is that okay to do?

Yeah, you can do it either way. The time differs a little when its just on the rack.

Flip the pan upside down, don't put it directly on the rack unless directed. It might not have a firm enough crust and then you'd be in a ton of trouble.

No pan may cause this:

If it fits with the pan upside down, though, that's totally fine, as long as it's not touching a rack above it.

Upside down pan would work or you could put it on a piece of foil.

Ah, that's true. Idk what kind of pizza you're making. The Digiorno ones are good on the rack, but the crust is thick.

That picture looks like it was just dough, and needed a baking sheet. If you're baking a frozen pizza, I think you can bake it with or without.

The one I made was a Walmart brand frozen pizza.
