From the time that I moved to the DC area back in August until I started my new job a month ago, my schedule has been really flexible. Though I don't think I was conscious of it, this was very liberating in terms of food preparation. With the new job, I work at home. You'd think this would let me run into the kitchen to briefly add something to a pot now and then, but I can't depend on that sort of flexibility. I'm often on the phone, and I don't always finish my workday in time to make the dinner I was planning. My habits are changing.

Waffle irons aren't just for waffles. Like many people, I'm not a fan of unitasking tools in the kitchen. I don't have huge amounts of kitchen storage, so I don't want to load it up with a bunch of things that only get used once a year. Waffle irons are practically the unitask archetype. They are reasonably large and you can't use them for anything besides waffles, right? Wrong.

Image by Aaron LandryOver at Goodeater, Kenji Alt has posted his clever kitchen hack for making a brick-oven style pizza at home. Unfortunately, his method is somewhat time-consuming and fidgety. It also requires a gas stovetop burner, which I don't have.
Here are my modifications of his hack. My methods are (as yet) untested, but if they work, they should be easier and more elegant than Alt's.
