Homemade Frozen Pizzas are easy to make. Stock up your freezer with a quick meal full of homemade goodness. It’s better than take-out!
Homemade frozen pizzas only take a small amount of time to put together for large quantities of pizza on hand in the freezer at all times. It’s the perfect freezer meal that the whole family will love.
How long do these pizzas take to put together?It takes approximately 8 minutes to make the dough and get it rising. It will need to rise for 90 minutes to 2 hours. After that it will take approximately 15 minutes to roll out and top 3 pizzas. This brings your total “hands on” time to just 23 minutes. You can’t even get a pizza delivered in 23 minutes!
Can I double this recipe?Absolutely! Doubling it can be done if you have a heavy duty, large capacity stand mixer. If you don’t, you can simply make two batches back to back and have them rise in separate bowls. A professional series Kitchen Aid stand mixer can handle a double batch, while their Artisan series is best suited to a single batch.
How long do they stay good in the freezer?These Homemade Frozen Pizzas will stay good in the freezer for up to 3 months if wrapped well in plastic wrap to prevent freezer burn.
Can I do this with other toppings than just pepperoni?Yes, any topping that is freezable will work just fine. I even make a cilantro-lime chicken pizza that freezes quite well.
What kind of tray do I freeze these on?You can either use clean cardboard cut into 16 inch circles, or aluminum pizza trays. I purchased my pizza trays from a restaurant supply store.
What if I have a side by side refrigerator/freezer?Well then, a large 16 inch circular pizza like this just won’t fit. Make it into a large rectangle instead and use a different kind of tray. Shape doesn’t really matter when it comes to pizza. All that matters is that it is still thin enough that it won’t require par-baking.
Do I need to par-bake the crust?No! This recipe does not require any par-baking of the crust. The crust is thin enough that it will thaw and cook completely through at the same rate as the toppings.
How do I store the pizzas once frozen?Pizzas should be wrapped in plastic wrap for longer term storage. They can stay in the freezer on trays for 5 to 7 days without getting freezer burn, but should be wrapped or otherwise prevented from being exposed to the freezer air for longer term storage.

Delicious recipe! Thank you so much for sharing. I will use this often!!
Love this pizza dough make all the time. Just a question the carbs is that for a slice?
I live alone and can’t eat a 16 inch pizza. If I make smaller pizzas, like 8 inch diameter, will the dough still cook properly? It would be wonderful to have a bunch of good “personal” sized pizzas in my freezer!
That’s exactly what I did and they turned out perfectly. We are using this dough to make frozen pizzas ahead and cut out a huge Totino’s frozen Pizza expense every week!
Can you bake these right after making them?
Yes, you do not have to freeze. You can always just assemble your pizza and and pop it straight in the oven.
You always aend me recipes right on time. I wanted an recipe for a easy pizza crust. Now when I’m off this weekend I must make a few batches of the crust ahead of time. Thank you ever so much. I surely hope you get to see my message. Be blessed!
So tasty, my grand children love them! Had two add a mother breast, because they ate them so fast
