Do It Yourself (DIY) Family Mart Pizza (Photos)

Pizza in a Matter of Seconds


Today was my first experiment with this kind of pizza.

There's a convenience store named Family Mart down the street from my office.

They have these places all over Japan.  I should do a photo essay on them someday.

People traveling need to know about all the things you can see and do in those stores.

But, right now, we're just going to look at my DIY project with the pizza.

 The gals in the store would have heated the pizza for me, but I wanted to try cooking myself.

Being in sort of a hurry (hungry) I just dragged a chair over to the door.

Then, set a tripod and camera up so I could shoot in natural light.

The directions required heating for 5 seconds, if you had a 1000W microwave.

Ten seconds, for a 500W microwave.

  My microwave is 700W.  Groan,

So, I did my best estimate and set the thing to about seven seconds.

It came out sort of warm and soggy.

But, I was hungry so, I ate it.


If you want to be a real Do-It-Yourselfer, you have to expect little things to go wrong.

That's why I made sure I bought an extra slice of pizza.

For pizza #2, I decided to crank the heat and time way-up.

Call it "Living outside the box" if you like.

How about 45 seconds on Hi heat, you little sucker !?



The second slice was so hot, I couldn't get it out of the oven without burning my hands.

Flip-flops came to the rescue. I don't know where I'd be without them.

You've probably never seen anyone using flip-flops for a serving tray.  Me neither 'til today.

By the time I got done taking photos everything was done sizzling and popping.

The pizza cooled-down and it was delicious.



The only thing I have to figure out now is another Do-it-yourself thingy.

Maybe someone reading this knows the answer.

How do you remove pizza burns from one of these chairs ?
