Store bought frozen pizza used to be something that I would keep in our freezer pretty regularly. Our family all liked it and it certainly was a quick and easy meal when time got tight. However as I have worked on making our meals both more economical and healthier - frozen pizzas were something that needed to go. (Though I have a quick confession- we actually bought and ate frozen pizzas just this week- but the circumstances were special and I will try to blog about that later.) As a general rule I have not purchased frozen pizzas for a few years now.
We do still like pizza however and I still like the convenience of having one in the freezer. We still can do that- it is just homemade instead of store bought.
What I do is whenever I make pizza I simply make two (and it wouldn't hurt if I would start making even bigger batches!) and I freeze one. Here is my recipe and how I do it:
I like this crust recipe:
~6 cups flour ( I make around 1/2 of the flour whole wheat.)
~2 teaspoons salt
~ 3 teaspoons sugar
~2 Tablespoons yeast
~1/4 cup oil
~2 cups hot water
Mix dry ingredients and then add the wet ingredients and mix well. Let sit 8-10 minutes. Spread out on a greased cookie sheets. This recipe makes two 10 X 15 inch crusts.
This method works great and helps a lot with saving money too!
