comment How to add more toppings to frozen pizza?
Ditto this exactly. I add toppings (sliced raw onion / mushroom / bell pepper / broccoli / asparagus..., shredded or sliced meats) and then some extra cheese. Bake for the normal amount of time and it's fine. The only thing you have to be careful of is not adding too many "wet" vegetables as these can make the middle of the pizza end up a bit soggy.

comment How do I tell if my pasta is molto al dente?
Or to think of it another way, if you are aiming for "al dente" at the end and it says that will be 10 minutes, you need to factor in the 2 minutes (or whatever) it will be in the sauce into the cooking time, so you would only need to cook for 8 minutes initially.

comment Freezing cooked rice?
yep, I do this all the time. I usually freeze it in ice cube trays so that I can pick up as many cubes as I need, otherwise a big chunk is harder to defrost in one go.

comment What vegetable might be called a Worchester?
I agree... and now I'm wondering whether they really did call it a "worchester" or whether you just mis-heard them saying "water chestnut"!
