My kids love pizza! I love the quick convenience of frozen pizzas, so I make a bunch ahead of time and add them to the freezer for later. You can make ten pizzas for under $20 in no time. You will love having these ready to go in the freezer when you need a quick meal.
Basic Pizza Dough Recipe (makes 10 personal sized pizzas):
- 6 cups flour
- 2 envelopes yeast
- 2 cup warm water
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoon salt
Desired Topping: (It’s totally up to you but here are some ideas.)
pizza or pasta sauce
To preserve in freezer you will need:
First you will need to make a basic pizza crust. Mix warm water and yeast together, then add to 3 cups of flour.
Next work in the rest of the flour as you knead the dough for about 8 minutes or until dough becomes elastic. Form a ball and let rest in a covered bowl for 15 minutes.
After you’ve allowed the dough to rise a bit, divide into ten balls and then roll out your pizza dough.
Next add sauce, cheese, toppings and finish off with final layer of cheese.
To add these to your freezer for later, bake in a preheated oven at 450 for only 5 minutes. The idea is to start to bake it but only until the dough is slightly cooked. It will finish cooking when you bake it the second time when you take it out of the freezer. This will ensure the crust will be nice and crispy when done. I love the Aluminum Pizza Peel I picked up at Amazon. It is a handy tool for making homemake pizzas.
Once you have cooked them for 5 minutes, let the pizza cool and then wrap the cooled pizza in plastic wrap, and then in foil. The pizzas are ready for the freezer to bake at a later date.
When you are ready to bake the pizzas, take them out of the freezer and bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Your family is going to love, having these homemade pizza ready to go in the freezer, for a quick and easy delicious meal.
