In Russian we have the same curious issue - we never say "to fry blini (pancakes )", but only "to bake blini"
I see here a kind of similarity, since both blini and pizza have common shape - flat and round - so it might be a root of the phenomenon!

I vote for baking. We went camping one weekend. Of course we were hungry for pizza. Pick one up on the way. By the time we got to our camp and set up. It was cold. So we laid it across our hotdog forks and heated it up over the camp fire. Would that pizza be roasted?

Isn't just a kind of attempt to forbear from making straight decision - "cook" or "bake" ?

And isn't pizza referred to as a 'pie' and we bake pies.
