How long do these pizzas take to put together?
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.
