If it’s a steam iron, empty out the water and turn off the steam option. Set the iron to a high setting – cotton or linen – and iron just like you’d iron a shirt. Don’t just set the iron down on the foil – not only is that stupidly unsafe, it will probably shut itself off. Keep it moving for about two minutes, then unfold the edges and check to see how melted the cheese is (this is why you folded the foil neatly), fold it back up, and turn it over to iron the other side for another minute or two.

Unwrap carefully, cut into two or four pieces, and chow down.

HEALTHY OPTIONS: Spaghetti Squash & Couscous

Whether you’re trying to control your weight or just add some vitamins and fiber to balance out all the pizza, eating vegetables doesn’t have to be a drag.

Spaghetti squash with lemon-tahini sauce

Spaghetti squash is the holy grail for carb-avoiders: pale yellow, oval-shaped and thin-skinned, it can save you from pasta overload. After you cook it, the flesh separates into strands that can be topped with anything you like – tomato sauce, butter and garlic, olive oil and Parmesan, or almost anything you’d put on pasta. This Middle Eastern sauce is a bit different than the usual Italian-inspired treatment.
