In my first PIZZA NIGHT Pizza post, I proved to myself and the world that making your own pizza on a regular basis is easy, inexpensive and much, much better than serving store-bought pizzas to your family. My children (boys: 16 & 11), however, beg to differ and asked on a regular basis when we were going to start buying frozen pizzas again because they missed the easy lunch option. So instead of lamenting the lack of appreciation for my 'back to basics' efforts, I came up with a way to have homemade pizzas available to my kids for their hobbit-like need to eat several meals a day.
You can keep the dough in the fridge until the next day or, while you're in pizza making mode~carry on! Bake these 10" dough circles for about 5-6 minutes. I turn the oven down to 350° to make these. I know it's not exactly the right temp after having baked pizzas at 450° but I don't want them to be overdone. Don't let them bake past 6 minutes; they'll turn out too crusty.
Once the crusts are done, let them cool down, then add your sauce, cheese and toppings. Carefully, and I do mean carefully, fit each pizza into the aforementioned zip-lock freezer bag. The pizzas should hold up well enough until you get them into the freezer. I was even able to stack mine!
