Ingredients to cook frozen pizza at home

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • Three tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil 
  • One 1/2teaspoons of salt 
  • 2 cups of lukewarm water
  • 5 cups of flour

Now, let’s start to cook it at home, and this is way better than anything you can buy at the grocery store. You can make a large pizza size or medium size pizza that is up to you.

Add all the above ingredients in 5 cups of all-purpose flour. Dump that all into the mixer and get it mixing. It only takes about five minutes to put your dough together. Once the dough is smooth and pulled away from the sides of the bowl, please turn it off. 

Now, transfer this to a lightly greased bowl to rise. This bowl has been lightly greased with non-stick cooking spray, and we need to turn it around a little bit so that a little bit of grease gets all over the dough.  

We will use a towel to cover it and let it rise until it’s double in size. This process will take about 90 minutes to 2 hours. After this process, divide it into three equal pieces and start rolling them out into circles. With the help of a rolling pin, keep on rolling and stretch out the dough. 

You can make three 16-inch big pizza crusts following this recipe. You can use aluminium restaurant pizza pans or cut out some clean cardboard into a 16-inch circle. 

After preparing the crust, time to start adding toppings, start with the sauce. I have already shared above in this article the quick way to make homemade pizza sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella, some pepperoni and some veggies as well. These are easily customizable to your taste preferences. 

You can use different sauces and different toppings and make three different pizzas. Now put them in the freezer and freeze them until solid. Once they’re frozen solid, wrap them in plastic wrap so that they stay good and the fridge longer and don’t get any freezer burn.

Once you’re ready to eat, preheat an oven to 500 degrees. I like to make sure that a pizza stone is in there too, then you pop the frozen pizza crust directly onto a pan, or a pizza stone gives it about 12 to15 minutes in the oven until the cheese is bubbling and brown and you are ready to eat.

Congratulations, now you have learned how to cook frozen pizza at home.
