Pizza Recipe

I made three of these and put them directly in the freezer and then made 1 for dinner the other day. Directions are for 1 pizza. Each pizza serves 2-3. The pizzas are pretty thin and therefore not very filling.

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough mix (check package for additional ingredients – mine just needed warm water)
  • 6 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Desired toppings (I use sausage, pepperoni, and fresh diced tomato)

Directions

  1. Prepare dough as directed on package. (I actually bake mine for an extra minute or two because the crust doesn’t get very crispy on a regular cookie sheet. If you have an actual pizza pan with holes in it, you may be able to get a crispier crust without the extra time.)
  2. Mix tomato sauce, oregano, basil, and garlic in bowl. Set Aside.
  3. If using sausage or other uncooked meat, brown before topping pizza.
  4. Assemble pizza. Spread sauce evenly on cooked dough. Spread cheese and then desired toppings.
  5. If eating immediately: Bake at 425F until cheese is melted.
  6. If freezing: Place entire pizza, on cookie sheet, into freezer, uncovered. Remove after about 2 hours and wrap in plastic wrap and/or foil.
  7. To cook frozen pizza: Bake 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted, at 425 on low oven rack.

Verdict

Good, but not quite enough flavor.

Changes for next time

  1. Finely shredded mozzarella to get a better coating.
  2. Only cook sausage until just done, not crispy. Mine got extra crispy when the pizza was baking.
  3. More spices in the sauce?
