I'm willing to bet you didn't lose any time at all, actually. You simply "thought" the clock said 8:57 when you looked at it, when it was actually 9:57. You just had your time wrong. It's easy to do with the sun going down so much later now as it seems like it's earlier than it is.
Also, if it was a digital clock, your view could have seen an 8 when it was actually a nine as they are so similar.
Easy slip-ups really.

I absolutely understand the confusion that comes with missing time, as it has happened to me numerous times.
Once, I was out on military maneuvers, completely equipped with laser- tag -like equipment and an M16. I went into a porta- potty and the next thing I know I am outside without any equipment, including my weapon and Kevlar. I was so confused but what was so strange was that my sergeants basically didn't care even after I had to retrieve the weapon and equipment....that memory is very hazy for some reason and gives me a huge headache even to rewrite (I have written some of my experiences on this site before). A lot of my missing time episodes include sudden headaches when I think about them.
Anyway, I can empathize with the confusion and wtf. This stuff is real and happens more than some people could ever imagine.

I have lost about 2 hours while driving a car, and found myself in a completely different location, miles behind where we had already been. I had a passenger. Both of us looked at each other in a state of shock, at the same time, and said "What the hell?!!"

Curious. Were there any UFO sightings near your area during the general time you lost time? I don't know how you could find out, though unless one or more of your neighbors saw something and reported it.

perhaps you blacked out BEFORE you made the pizza and just assumed it happened after you made the pizza.

I would say seizures maybe... ??? It is most odd and discomfiting.
