Freezer Friendly Recipe- Homemade Personal Pizza


Freezer to Oven: Homemade Personal Pizza

Pizzas are one of the things that many people keep in the freezer. Sometimes it’s just so we have an in-case-of-emergency meal, sometimes it’s just because we get a hankering for pizza. But what buy a pizza in your grocer’s freezer section when you can make it yourself with whatever toppings you like and put it in the freezer? It’s the best of both worlds, it saves you money, and you get exactly what you want on your pizza. Making Homemade Personal Pizza is easy and quick, especially if you make up a few for later use. So grab your favorite toppings and make up Homemade Personal Pizza for now and later.
Must Have Ingredients for Homemade Personal Pizza
Besides your toppings, there are few things we need to have on hand to make Homemade Personal Pizza. The crust, a combination of chewy and crispy, is made from flour, olive oil, salt, yeast, and sugar. I like to use honey as the sugar because it gives a richer flavor and it’s a more natural than granulated sugar. For yeast, I use quick rising so that it doesn’t take as long to make the crust for Homemade Personal Pizza. For flour, I use a regular, all-purpose unbleached flour although I have also made this with whole wheat flour in a 50/50 ratio. Adding whole wheat flour gives the crust a denser composition, and a nutty flavor.

Homemade Personal Pizza Ingredients

  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
    1 C warm water
    1 t honey or sugar
    2 ½ C flour
    2 T olive oil
    1 t salt
    cornmeal (for dusting pan)

Homemade Personal Pizza Dough Ball

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix the yeast, water, and honey. Set aside and let it “bloom”, where the top foams when the yeast is active.
In another bowl, place the flour, olive oil and salt.
When the yeast has bloomed, pour the mixture into the flour mixture and mix well, adding more flour if the dough is sticky. The dough should not stick to your fingers when you touch it.
Gather the dough into a ball, place in the center of the bowl, and set aside in a warm place for 10 minutes to rest.
Cut the dough into 2 pieces for thick crust and 4 pieces for thin crust.
Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal.
Press the dough out into rounds at the thickness you prefer.
Pierce the center several times with a fork to prevent air bubbles.
Bake in heated oven for 5-7 minutes, until the dough just starts to turn golden brown.
Remove and let cool.
You can freeze as is, or top with your favorite toppings and freeze on a baking sheet. Once frozen, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. Label well and store in freezer.

To bake, heat oven to 425 degrees F. Place frozen pizza on baking sheet or rack of oven. Bake 7-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbling.

Fun Toppings for your Homemade Personal Pizza
Change up your pizza from the standard pepperoni or extra cheese! Caramelize some onions and mushrooms, slice tomatoes and eggplant thin, and use goat cheese instead of mozzarella. The flavor is amazing and you’ll love the change!

Want A Big than Homemade Personal Pizza?
If you have a large family, or family that can agree on what they want a pizza you don’t have to make the pizzas in a personal size. Instead of making a full size pizza and either freeze the dough right after baking or top with your favorite toppings freeze it. Either way, wrap it tightly for later and you will have a fresh pizza in minutes. Whether it be personal or family size, Homemade Personal Pizza is a great thing to have in the freezer for those rush nights when you don’t have time to bake something fresh for dinner.
