Homemade Frozen Pizza

Homemade Frozen Pizza

It has been awhile since I shared a recipe for my homemade favorites series, so when I recently stocked my freezer with homemade frozen pizza I knew exactly what homemade favorite I needed to share with you next.

I don’t remember the last time we had a store bought frozen pizza. Yes, we have had them, but pizza is so easy to make at home that we rarely buy it frozen or otherwise.

What I love about homemade pizza is that I can control the ingredients. I can make it how we like and as healthy or unhealthy as I want to.

We have pizza for dinner about once a week at our house, usually on Friday night, but I also find it to be a fun lunch on the weekends or a quick dinner for a busy night.

I know a lot of people like to freeze their pizza dough and then bake it when they are ready to make pizza. I have never really been one of those people. I just think the dough is different when frozen raw and then cooked, but I love the convenience of having the meal made ahead, so I have come up with something that works better for us.

Homemade Frozen Pizza. You pre-bake the crust, then top it, then freeze it.

It is really easy and better than anything you can buy in the store. And the kids love to help make it.

I find the pizzas are easier to deal with when I make smaller frozen pizzas, so we make them about the size perfect for one person. We make an assembly line for the toppings and we can have a lot of homemade frozen pizzas done in no time.

We made up a bunch of these when we were doing our kitchen remodel and we reheated them in a toaster oven and it worked great. I also love these for nights that I am gone, or out of town, because it makes it easy for the kids to fix dinner.

Really, if your family loves pizza as much as my family does, this homemade version of frozen pizza is a must try. It is easy and delicious!

Do you like to freeze pizza? If so do you freeze the dough or do you make frozen pizzas like I do?

  1. This looks brilliant! We pre-bake our dough, and we like to have one or two pre-baked crusts in the freezer so we can get started faster on pizza night :-)
    But the little ones look good – and freezing them assembled is a great idea!

  2. This is wonderful Lynn! Hubby and I are trying to eat at home more and eat a little healthier and these will be perfect when the pizza cravings hit. I’m like you. I don’t like the way the pizza dough turns out when I freeze it raw. This is so much better! Thanks. :)

  3. I’ve tried Amy’s gluten free frozen pizza once and that was enough. The best I’ve found so far is Udi’s pizza crusts then I make a fresh pizza each time. They come out about as good as a regular frozen pizza.
    This is a great idea. I can make the pizza any way I want and any size I want. I have a pizza flour at home Bob’s Red Mill I think. I’ll use that until I get to Whole Foods and buy real ingredients.
    Thanks Ron

  4. Would the cooking instructions be much different for large pizzas?
