Pizza – from scratch is the best.thing.ever.
Even if you’ve used a store-bought crust & done your own topping thing, you’re still missing out. Try your hand at a homemade crust & you’ll be wondering why they still sell frozen pizzas.
Pizza crusts come in all shapes & sizes. Our favorite go-to crust is a no-rise recipe; ready to go in 40-minutes. Other crust recipes we enjoy include:
Most of these recipes make two pizza crusts – if your family doesn’t need to pizzas, save the other crust for later.
Freezing Pizza Crust
Super easy to do. Prepare the crust as directed, then wrap the dough up in plastic wrap and freeze. The day you’re planning to make pizza, take the dough out of the freezer and place the dough in a lightly greased bowl. If you will be gone all day, leave the dough, covered, in your refrigerator. If you take the dough out about 4 hours before dinner, leave it on the counter to thaw.
At dinnertime, prepare the crust as directed in the recipe.
Just by switching up the toppings, you have an entirely new pizza, even if you have it on your menu once a week! Better yet – try a breakfast pizza for dinner. Yum!
Proteins & Cheeses
Calzones & Stromboli
- Bake the pizza in a pre-heated oven.
- Bake the pizza at around 400 – 500 degrees F for 15ish minutes. Baking at a higher temperature helps form that bubbly cheese we all love.
- Try grilling pizza in the summer – it’s the best.
Give it a try – maybe even for Halloween? A quick, fast & festive dinner before trick-o-treating.
