    You probably have a broken microwave. Take it to a repair shop or consult with a technician. I don't think this question will survive here, some other SE site may be more appropriate. – JohnEye Jun 1 '18 at 10:34

The exterior is getting hot because it is generating a lot of heat. A pizza has a bit of mass and 180 degrees Celsius is hot. It could be a safety shut off.

And it could be broken.

If it works fine with smaller items then more likely it is a safety shut off.
