Freezer Cooking - Premade Frozen Pizza


I love the convenience of those premade frozen pizzas.  I am not so fond of the cost or the taste.  I have been making pizza crust dough and freezing it.  I wanted to take it further.  Some days I only have time and energy to put a pizza from the freezer into the oven.  At the same time I did not want to depend on what is available in the freezer case of the grocery stores.

 

I found this post on Pinterest.  The directions were simple enough.  Par baking the crust really helped keep it from getting soggy when it was finished baking.  This would be a good option for making smaller personal sized pizzas if cooking for one or if everyone likes different toppings. 

 


 

I make four pizzas at a time and wrap them up.  It is wonderful to be able to pop a homemade pizza in the oven in just minutes.  I add salad for a good, easy meal. 

 

I use this pizza sauce recipe.  My only change is using ¾ cup of water rather than 1 cup.  This makes enough for 2+ pizzas or more if like piles of sauce.

How do you package the pizzas for freezing? I've tried wrapping and I've tried slipping them into zippered freezer bags. I was wondering how you package them.

Terri, I rolled the crust out on a piece of parchment paper for easy baking. I wrapped pizza and parchment paper first with plastic wrap and then with tin foil. I used the pizzas within a month. The last was as good as the first.
