Story Time- A Tale of Two Pizzas

Gluten free frozen pizzas have been a bit of an ongoing saga of frustration over the pizzas not being cooperative and ending up overcooked and at times burned such as I shared a few days ago in- Story Time- A Funny Thing Happened to My Lunch.

Today I gladly share a success story and a new method. The new method was inspired by a comment David of davidsdailydose.org made on the post. “All you need to do is match the length of your TV program to the cooking time, Matt. 1 🍕 pizza = 30 minutes. Problem solved.”

Yesterday I placed a gluten free frozen pizza in the oven. Realizing the show I was watching on Hulu had segments on the bottom of the screen indicating when commercial breaks would occur, I used those as a way to keep track of time. The instructions for the pizza were ten minutes at 375 degrees. Ten minutes is how long the segments are between commercials. The results speak for themselves.

Thus a dilemma that has plagued perhaps the whole world, well at least mine, has been solved. My little sister in Jesus Alicia of forhispurpose.blog might find this useful as well. She has been public about her propensity for the occasional burning of things.

So the new method that I freely share is to use the time indicator at the bottom of the screen while watching a show on a streaming service. The segments are about ten minutes each some a bit longer. No need to thank me. This was a collaborative project between David and myself.

This new method can be adjusted to listening to music such as two of three songs, depending on how long the songs are, can indicate ten minutes. If more time is needed, listen to more songs.

Perhaps this is what Proverbs 15:22 is talking about:


Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.

What should we call this new method? The steaming service method? David and Matt’s Collaboration? Any ideas?

Feel free to share this revolutionary new method 🙂

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Matt, this is the most AWESOME mention I’ve ever received in my blogging life! My revolutionary cooking timer method literally came to me off the top of my head. Somehow, it hit me: maybe the TV (what Matt’s looking at) could somehow help him not to burn his lunch?!

    At the moment, I can’t think of a catchy name for our collaboration to stressless cooking. All my creativity was drained coming up with the idea for the TV Oven Timer. Hey, that works! Matt and David’s TV Oven Timer.

  2. Matt and David’s TV Oven Timer!! This is great!! Although I don’t watch much TV so we would need to tweak it somewhat for my burn mishaps!! I usually get distracted by cleaning house or reading!!

  3. I will be first in line to buy this revolutionary timer when it hits the market. I thing it will be a best seller. Think of all the TV lovers who would purchase. 🤔
