Check the power output. Most are adjustable. With the microwave on, and cooking something, see if it is on 100%. If not, adjust it with the keypad.

I would check the cooking instructions on the side of the pizzas packaging. If microwave cooking is not listed I would not recommend cooking it in a microwave as this could make the food unsafe to eat.

But if you're short of an oven I have found a guide on barbecuing a pizza:

How long does it take to cook brown rice in the steamer?


To cook brown rice takes about twice as long at white rice. Usually there are microwave instructions on the rice package.
If the instructions specify a certain power, like 1000W, you
can look on the back of your microwave or in the instruction
booklet to see what yours is.
Good luck,

I have a new microwave oven Model JVM1750SM1SS. Does this model allow me to use seconds rather than minutes. For instance can I place a frozen dinner roll in the oven for twenty seconds?


It should. Normally to cook 20 seconds you would pres COOK TIME - 2 - 0 - START.

The Start pad on the keypad may be starting to short. If so, a new keypad (membrane switch) would fix it.

If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved. It's at

Sanyo microwave EMS667W, diff high power ratings


A couple of things: If the dinner is in an aluminum pan, DON'T put it in your oven. Typically, high power units need about 3-5 minutes to heat a dinner so you should have heated it through. The power default is usually full power. Usually, there is a minutes button that should give you incremental minutes for programming.

Try using a standard nonmetallic cup (beaker) and fill it with water. Heat for 2 minutes. The water should be boiling hot. If not, your oven is not doing it right.
