Pizza Crusts for the Freezer

 

We love homemade pizza! One thing I like to do is make a big batch of pizza crusts and then freeze them for use later on. If I don’t have any in the freezer on pizza night then I make up a batch of dough that will make 6 pizza crusts. My family eats 2 pizzas and the other 4 crusts go in the freezer.

Here is my pizza crust recipe: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/wwpizzacrust.htm  I double the 3 crust recipe to get 6 pizza crusts.

 



To make them for the freezer.. make the dough and let it rise once, punch it down and divide into 6 balls of dough…
 


Roll them out on the pizza pan (my pan size is: 14 inch) that as been sprayed with non-stick spray…
 


Par bake (prebake) them for 6 minutes… let them cool.. I have 3 pizza pans and bake one at a time and then slide them off the pan and reuse the pans for the next ones.



When the crusts have completely cooled I wrap them in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer….
 



When I want to use the crusts I pull one out of the freezer, remove the plastic wrap and set it on a pizza pan. It defrosts pretty quickly (an hour or so).. when it has defrosted I put my toppings on and bake according to the recipe…



Having the crusts in the freezer makes dinner pretty simple!!

Here is my favorite pizza sauce recipe:

Pizza Sauce
3- 8oz cans tomato sauce
1- 6oz can tomato paste
1T Italian seasonings
1t minced garlic, heaping
1t salt
pinch or two of cane juice crystals (or sugar) - according to your own tastes

Heat this up on the stove on low until hot.
