Who’s ready to make some pizza??? That’s what I’m doing today! I’m actually making 4 pizzas then I’m gonna freeze them for later use. I love having some frozen pizzas in my freezer for days that I don’t get around to making anything for super. I haven’t done the math, but making my own frozen pizzas is probably cheaper than buying them, especially since I buy some of my ingredients in bulk. And it’s also healthier, since I can control how much salt goes in and I don’t add preservatives.
Anyways….on with the recipe, here it is (today I doubled it, but this is the original recipe):
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 cups flour
This is supposed to make one pizza. But I have a small oven, so I make it into 2 small pizzas (or 4 today, because I doubled it).
Stir that into the flour.
Now, here’s where you can go one of two ways:
- If you’re making the pizza to eat now, put the toppings on and bake for about 15-20 minutes at 425 F.
- If you’re freezing it for later, don’t put the toppings on. Bake for about 5 minutes at 425 F.
Once your crust is done, let it cool.
When you want to eat the pizza take it out and unwrap it. Sprinkle cornmeal on your pizza pan and then bake the pizza on if for 10-20 minutes at 425 F. Now I have pizza for 4 meals in my freezer! Yay!
Frugal Tip: Since this uses big pieces of aluminum foil clean it off after use and fold it up for the next time you need aluminum foil.
